Pumpkin seeds provide a boost of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and the nutrients in pumpkin seeds are helpful for managing a variety of health conditions.
Supports Cell Growth and Repair
Protein is an essential nutrient required for our body to build tissues. Adult men and women 31 to 50 years old need about 6 ounce-equivalents and 5 ounce-equivalents, respectively, each day. Having an ounce or two of pumpkin seeds for a snack can help you reach this recommendation, supplying your body with the adequate foundation of amino acid building blocks.2
Promotes Good Sleep
Pumpkin seeds are a natural source of tryptophan, an amino acid that’s associated with improvements in sleep.3 Incorporating pumpkin seeds in an overall healthy diet may help you get a restful night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
Relieves Prostate Symptoms
Enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BHP), is a common problem for older men. Resulting symptoms on the urinary tract can hinder quality of life, including the frequent urge to urinate. A recent study suggests the effectiveness of pumpkin seed extract in improving the lives of those living with BPH
Enhances Immune Function
Consuming 1 ounce of roasted pumpkin seeds (or about 85 seeds) provides 20% of your daily value for zinc. Zinc is a crucial mineral that’s not stored in the body, so regular intake is necessary. Zinc deficiencies lead to an impairment in key immune processes, including natural killer T cell function.5 Adequate zinc is also vital for proper wound healing after an injury or infection.
Triglycerides are a type of fat in the blood that are associated with heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to help reduce high triglycerides, hence reducing unhealthy cardiovascular markers. A study conducted on patients on maintenance hemodialysis provided a milled seed mixture of pumpkin, flax, and sesame seeds demonstrated a 30% reduction in serum triglycerides after 12 weeks of supplementation.6 The combination of beneficial fats and fiber in seeds produces cumulative positive effects.
It is possible to have an allergic reaction to pumpkin seeds, although reports of this allergy are very rare.7 Allergies can develop at any time. Pumpkin meat or seed allergy symptoms may include chest tightness, hives, and vomiting. If you suspect an allergy to pumpkin, seek care from a healthcare professional.8
If you’re not accustomed to eating a lot of fiber, it can take some time for your digestive system to adjust to eating pumpkin seeds.3 Increase your intake gradually to avoid uncomfortable symptoms like gas, bloat, or constipation.
Not all pumpkin seeds provide the same benefits. If you buy processed or packaged pumpkin seeds, you’re likely to get an extra dose of sodium and preservatives.
For example, popular brands of pumpkin seed packets found in the snack or candy aisle may add a whopping 815 milligrams of sodium per 1-ounce serving. Roasting your own pumpkin seeds or eating them raw provides maximal nutrition.3
Storage and Food Safety
When harvesting fresh pumpkin seeds, it’s important to remove the seeds immediately after cutting into the pumpkin. Pumpkins are a low acid vegetable that is prone to bacteria growth when left to sit out at room temperature.9
Keep raw pumpkin seeds in the refrigerator or freezer to extend their shelf life. Fresh seeds are high in oils that can go rancid quickly. Seal roasted pumpkin seeds in an airtight container and keep at room temperature.
