Pumpkin seeds have more zinc than any other seed, which is important for burning fat. Zinc also helps the body produce more testosterone which can help you build muscle. Founder of London Doctors Clinic, Dr Seth Rankin says, “Fibre is essential for a healthy digestive system and the good news is that pumpkins have half a gram of fibre per hundred grams, meaning you will feel less tempted to snack between meals.”
These seeds are great for weight loss and brain function. Hemp contains twelve grams of protein in just three tablespoons — which helps boost muscle growth — and Omega 3, which helps burn fat.
Chia seeds are full of fibre, magnesium, potassium, iron and are low in fat. They will help suppress your appetite and leave you feeling energised for longer.
These are great for sprinkling on salads or soups. Sunflower seeds are filled with vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. They are also packed with magnesium, which energises you leading to calorie burn.
Flax seeds are one of the best sources of Omega 3 which help burn body fat and regulate insulin levels. They also contain iron, protein, and fibre.
