Pumpkin seeds were discovered by ancient archeologists in caves in Mexico 7,000 BC. Pumpkin seeds are rich in many minerals, protein and other nutrients that benefit your health and wellbeing.
Pumpkin seeds contain Magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, phosphorus and protein. Many of these minerals are beneficial for bone health, heart health, prostate health, among other things. Pumpkin seeds also contain L-Tryptophan which is an amino acid that helps the body create serotonin and melatonin which are your sleep/awake and happy hormones. These hormones regulate sleep cycles and help you to relax and sleep properly, along with magnesium, found in pumpkin seeds as well.
Not only that, but pumpkin seeds are one of the only foods that helps to remove both parasites and tapeworms, which effect 97% of the population. Whether you eat meat or not, your body can be a breeding ground from parasites simply by drinking water, eating food, petting a dog or breathing.
Pumpkin seeds are also the most alkaline forming seed as well, to help alkalize the body. Pumpkin seeds also are one of the only foods that increase in nutritional value over time. So you can store this food and not worry about it losing nutritional value, it will only get better!

Raw,cooked or dried?
I Love dried pumpkin seeds!!
They are great! 🙂
You will probably get the most nutritional value from Raw pumpkin seeds, they do taste pretty good roasted though! but I eat most of mine raw after I soak them like shown in the video above.
