We’re all about natural health here at TITC and while creating our ‘Menopause Empowerment’ course (click here to register your interest), we came across some interesting facts about Pumpkin seeds.
Did you know that Pumpkin seeds can help enhance your mood, renew your skin and reduce menopause symptoms? A woman can lose zinc through hot flushes and night sweats and you guessed it, these amazing little seeds are high in zinc. It helps our immune systems to stay strong as well as keep skin healthy and produce sex hormones which during the menopause are decreasing. Pumpkin seeds are also high in protein and provide omega -7 that helps to prevent dryness of the skin, including vaginal dryness. Pumpkin seeds are definitely a great snack for anyone looking to improve their heart health, skin, immune system and sleep.
We suggest eating a handful of organic seeds as a healthy snack or if you’re carving pumpkins this Halloween, why not roast the seeds scooped out. Simply wash the seeds and remove any flesh fibres from the pumpkin, spread over a baking tray, pour a little olive oil over them and then sprinkle with your flavouring so sea salt, Italian herbs, cinnamon or even chilli flakes. Then mix all together and then bake at 170 celsius for around 15 minutes or until the seeds are lightly golden brown. Leave to cool and then store in an airtight container for snacking on later!
