Pumpkin Seed Benefits Can Boost Your Beauty!

It’s time to boost your natural beauty! Natural beauty is the hottest, sexiest trend around.  Plus, foods that you may not even suspect can help to give you that natural radiance. Raw nuts and seeds are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Pumpkin seeds, especially, offer amazing benefits to your inner and outer beauty. Pumpkin seeds are proof positive that the best beauty boosts can come from the smallest of places. They make you glow from the inside out!

The pumpkin originated from Mexico. Pumpkin seeds are also an amazing source of vitamins and anti-oxidants like niacin, zinc, iron, and calcium. The vitamins and minerals in pumpkin seeds can help to strengthen your hair and nails, restore skin elasticity, and even soothe stressed nerves. A naturally beautiful you starts from the inside out and, while the pumpkin’s vivid orange shell itself is also extremely nourishing, its real benefits are found in those tricky-to-cultivate seeds.

Yes, pumpkin seeds are high in calories that come from protein and fat but remember, not all forms of fat are out to get you (and your waistline). The mono-unsaturated fats in pumpkin seeds actually help lower your bad cholesterol while increasing your good cholesterol. Their protein and fiber content will help you feel full and they are an excellent source of magnesium. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for our bodies. It boosts our energy, aids in calcium absorption, and even helps to prevent osteoporosis. That tiny little seed can even help ease the symptoms of PMS and menopause, lifting your mood and increasing that happy glow.

Pumpkin seeds also contain Vitamin E, which is a great anti-oxidant for our beautiful bodies. It helps protect from harmful free radicals and toxins that could lead to cardiovascular disease and cancer. Vitamin E is also a great protection against ultraviolet radiation that can cause skin cancer and premature aging. Vitamin E from a natural source like pumpkin seeds is actually easier for your body to absorb and restores the radiance of youth better than any cream.

An important thing to remember about pumpkin seeds and other healthy seeds and nuts is that you must eat them raw, in moderation. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing, and you should seek balance in your diet just as you do in your daily life. Pumpkin seeds are often an overlooked treasure.  Since our ultimate goal is to attain beauty through natural and healthy means, munching on some pumpkin seeds is a tasty way to keep and maintain that radiant presence.
