Seeds are amazing EFA powerhouses. Super-nutritious, super-rich in fibre, super-high in omega-3 EFAs and super-packed with protein.
If you were to google the benefits of each seed in this mix, you'd be overwhelmed - there are just too many to mention but here's a taster:
- We've got Chia, one of the highest sources of omega-3, more calcium than milk, and super-lubricating for the gut with it's mega-high mucilage.
- Flax is renowned for its balanced omegas and dietary fibre content 27%, but especially for its high lignan content which have high antioxidant and estrogen properties, both of which can help lower the risk of cancer and improve health.
- Hemp - 33% protein, a whopping 55% dietary fibre and a useful prebiotic for the fibre-fermenting gut microbes, helping support good fibre digestibility and gut health.
- Pumpkin Seeds are nutritional powerhouses, high in magnesium, phytosterols and free-radical scavenging antioxidants. Thought to benefit heart, liver and immune system, plus they contain curcumin which is said to be effective in destroying gut parasites.
- Finally, Sesame Seeds,where the women of ancient Babylon mixed honey with sesame seeds to prolong youth and beauty, and a major player for heavenly hummus! They're also super high in the B-Vits, copper and zinc which support healthy hair, skin, nails, bones, you name it, alongside calcium, magnesium, protein and fibre.
Overall, these incredible nutritional powerhouses are said to support heart health, digestion and gut motility, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, balance blood sugar levels, stave off hunger ... the list goes on and on!
