Their high caloric content mainly comes from protein and fats. These seed are especially rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) like oleic acid (18:1) that helps lower LDL cholesterol and increases good HDL cholesterol in the blood.
Pumpkin seeds contain good-quality protein, 100g of seeds provide 30g of protein, or 54% of recommended daily allowance. In addition, the seeds are an excellent source of amino acids tryptophan and glutamate. Tryptophan is converted into serotonin and niacin – serotonin is a beneficial neuro-chemical often labelled as nature’s sleeping pill.
Pumpkin seeds are also an excellent source of a B-complex group of vitamins including thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) and folates. These vitamins work as co-factors for various enzymes during cellular substrate metabolism in the human body. In addition, niacin helps to reduce LDL-cholesterol levels in the blood.
Furthermore, pumpkin seeds contain very good levels of essential minerals like copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium. Just as in pine nuts, pumpkin seeds too are very rich in manganese (provide 4543 mg per 100 g, about 198% of daily recommended intake). Manganese is an all-important co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase.
