I’ve listed below the nutritional benefits of each of the seeds we’ve packed into this nut butter so you can see how good it really is.
♥ Blood Pressure
Studies have shown that pumpkin seeds can help regulate blood pressure as part of a healthy diet.
♥ A source of Vitamins & Nutrients
Pumpkin seeds are a great source of protein and unsaturated fats (the good fats). They’re also packed full of nutrients, such as, iron, selenium, calcium, vitamin B and beta-carotene, which the body amazingly converts into vitamin A.
♥ High in vitamin E and Folate
Sunflower seeds are high in vitamin E have been linked to lowering the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. Sunflower seeds also contain folate, which has been shown to help cardiovascular health throughout a person’s lifetime (only if they keep sunflower seeds in their diet, of course).
♥ Source of Magnesium
Magnesium doesn’t just help bones keep bones strong and healthy, it also aids in respiratory function, heart health, and reducing PMS tension.
♥ Flaxseeds Are a Rich Source of Lignans, Which May Reduce Cancer Risk
Lignans feature in a variety of plants, they’re an antioxidant and have estrogen properties, both of which can help lower the risk of cancer and improve health.
♥ Rich in Fibre
Flaxseeds contain two types of dietary fibre: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre is slow releasing and aids in the consistency of the contents travelling through your intestine. Insoluble fibre help stools become soft, binds them and increases their bulk, this is something you’ll definitely benefit from if you suffer from constipation.
♥ Nutrient packed
Flax seeds are loaded with all kinds of nutrition, such as Protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium. If you’re leading a plant-based diet then flaxseeds can be one your best source of omega-3 fats, which is essential to a happy healthy body.
As well as all the above nutritional benefits there’s also the added nutritional benefits from our pistachios, which of course, is the main ingredient of this nut butter (and all our others too). If you’re interested in becoming a pistachio expert then this blog post will help you get started.
