Which seeds to choose?
For gym goers, pumpkin seeds are the perfect choice as they are particularly high in protein, containing between 25 and 30g of protein per 100g. Protein is vital for repair and recovery after exercise, as well as building and maintaining muscle.
If you’re looking to stay fit and healthy all winter, sunflower seeds are also a good source of zinc which is a natural immune booster. They may also help protect against heart disease, while their vitamin B can help in the fight against stress.
Tired all the time? Hemp seeds are a great source of magnesium, which plays a vital role in the body, including supporting energy release from foods and helping to reduce fatigue. Many people may be deficient in magnesium, so we need to get our sources where we can!
