Vitamins & Diets : About the Nutritional Value of Pumpkin Seeds

Hi, I’m Rachael Richardson, with Nutrolution,
in South Beach, Florida. In this clip, we’re talking about the nutritional value of pumpkin
seeds. So, pumpkin seeds; actually we’re coming up on Halloween right now this time of year,
and they’re great to actually take out of your pumpkin and go ahead and roast them.
They’re also referred to as pepitas, and there is a lot of nutritional value to be gleaned
from pumpkin seeds. Some of the main things that they have, that they’re especially rich
in; one of the nutrients is zinc, and zinc is incredibly important for all different
functions of our health. It’s actually the mineral and the nutrient that is used in more
chemical equations in the body than any other nutrient that exists, so everything from immune
function, to brain function to skin, to, in men, prostate health zinc is very important
for. One food that you can easily eat every day or every couple of days that is rich in
pumpkin seeds is pumpkin seed butter, and here you can see it. It’s actually quite delicious.
I like to spread it on bread, and I also like to dip carrots and apples into it. So, load
up on your pumpkins for better health. This has been Rachael, with Nutrolution, in Miami
Beach, Florida.
