As a general rule, the closer humans can get to a plant-based diet, the better. A plant-based diet is associated with a lower rate of mortality and a lower rate of cardiovascular disease. In fact, it has been proven scientifically, time and time again, that a diet rich in plants can lead to a significant reduction in risk of contracting diseases that are usually associated with early-onset mortality.
For those who want to live as long as possible and have as healthy of a life as they can, they may want to start looking at how to change their diet in such a way as to get plenty of protein each day, but to do so without consuming meat products.
Thankfully, there are lots of plant-based solutions to consuming one’s daily dose of protein. And of all the plant-based proteins, the best is pumpkin seed protein. This nutrient-rich, superfood-dense, healthful supplement provides one with the necessary daily protein intake as well a wealth of other healthy substances.
What is Pumpkin Seed Protein?
Simply stated, pumpkin seed protein comes from dried pumpkin seeds. In their natural form, organic pumpkin seeds contain fats, carbohydrates, and protein. In fact, a single pumpkin seed is comprised of 30 percent pure protein nutrients. Pumpkin seeds are also rich in a variety of other healthful nutrients and substances.
Pumpkin seed powder refers to a ground-down rendition of pumpkin seeds. This is mild, nutty-tasting supplement that offers a significant health boost without any unpleasant, unwanted, or unnecessary ingredients.
Other Health Benefits of Pumpkin Seeds
Because pumpkin seed protein powder is made from all-natural pumpkin seeds, people who choose this protein also receive an abundance of other health benefits that would not be present in whey protein or other, plant-based proteins.
Let’s take a look at ten health benefits of pumpkin seeds:
- Pumpkin seeds are full of valuable nutrients like fiber, carbs, healthy fats, omega-6s, vitamin K, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper.
- Pumpkin seeds are also rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, potassium, vitamin B2, and folate.
- Pumpkin seeds are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants can reduce inflammation and help protect the body’s cells from cancer-causing free radicals. In fact, antioxidants protect against many types of disease, making pumpkin seeds a staple “preventative,” (meaning that pumpkin seeds help prevent illness).
- Pumpkin seeds have been linked to a reduced risk for contracting certain types of cancer. In fact, a regular diet that is rich in pumpkin seeds can lead to reduced chances of contracting stomach, breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancers. That is likely due to the antioxidant-rich nature of pumpkin seeds.
- Pumpkin seeds improve general prostate and bladder health. Pumpkin seeds help relieve symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Called “BPH” for short, benign prostatic hyperplasia is a condition in which the prostate gland enlarges, causing problems with urination. Eating pumpkin seeds can help reduce symptoms of BPH.
- Pumpkin seeds are very high in magnesium, a critical mineral that about 79% of adults are deficient in. Magnesium is needed for over 600 chemical reactions within the human body, including controlling one’s blood pressure, reducing overall heart disease risk, forming and maintaining healthy bones, and regulating healthy blood sugar levels.
- Pumpkin seeds may also improve overall heart health. Pumpkin seeds are chock-full of antioxidants, magnesium, zinc, and fatty acids, all of which can improve cardiovascular function.
- Eating pumpkin seeds has also been linked to a reduction in blood sugar levels. Such an effect can be incredibly helpful for people with diabetes. The high magnesium nature of pumpkin seeds may be responsible for the positive impact on diabetes-related symptoms.
- Pumpkin seeds are also quite high in fiber. Dietary fiber is a crucial component of good digestive health and a reduction in heart disease risk. People with digestive conditions or heart conditions may consider adding pumpkin seeds to their regular diet.
- Last but not least, eating pumpkin seeds may also improve one’s sleep. Pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that can help promote sleep.
