Pumpkin seeds are a superfood. Pumpkin
seeds are rich in the amino acids alanin, glycine and glutamic acid, and
also contain high amounts of zinc. Enlargement of the prostate affects
about half of men over the age of 50 and including a handful of pumpkin
seeds may offer some protection against the development of prostate cancer.
They contain high quantities of protein, iron and phosphorous and even
a tablespoon a day would be a good addition to any healthy diet, particularly
for vegans and vegetarians.
