Pumpkin seeds fight parasites (especially tapeworms) and resolve depression while Sesame seeds fight headache and migraine

Healthy types of seeds and ways to use them (pumpkin and sesame) Part Three

  1. Pumpkin seeds – pumpkin seeds are considered a healthy food due to the wealth of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins (especially E and B groups), minerals (copper, magnesium, zinc, calcium and many others) and other useful trace elements. Pumpkin seeds are the only seeds that produce alkynes in a world full of highly alkaline diets. 100 grams of seeds will provide up to 54% of the daily protein needs for the human body. Most people use pills and vitamin capsules to compensate for vitamin B deficiency. Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of B vitamins (thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, B6 and folic acid). Resolves depressive states. The chemical component L-tryptophan is the secret ingredient for improving mood. Pumpkin seeds can prevent the formation of “certain specific kidney stones that are predominantly calcium oxalate” (many scientific studies have shown). Pumpkin seeds fight parasites (especially tapeworms). Fried seeds with added salt are a favorite snack originating from Mexico (pepito). Candied pumpkin seeds are excellent (for example, the way almonds are fried in caramelized sugar). Pumpkin seeds are a great cheap substitute (in numerous culinary recipes) for other expensive seeds (pistachios and pine nuts). This is proven by the example of the famous sauce from Genoa, Italy (the famous “pesto genovese” uses pine nuts, although pumpkin seeds are a great cheap substitute and many inspirations for other culinary recipes).
  2. Sesame seeds – sesame is probably the oldest spice known to mankind. Sesame oil, which is extremely resistant to harvesting, is especially valued. Sesame seeds are an excellent source of manganese and copper, as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. They contain two unique substances (sesamin and sesamolin) in addition to these nutrients. sesamin and sesamolin belong to the group of special dietary fibers called “lignans”. They have been shown to lower cholesterol levels and high blood pressure in humans and increase vitamin E levels in animals. Sesamin has been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage. 3 large spoons (ie about 30 grams) of unshelled sesame seeds provide 3.5 grams of fiber (which is 12% of the RDI). Some studies suggest that regular consumption of sesame seeds can help reduce high cholesterol and triglycerides (which are risk factors for heart disease). Research shows that consuming polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats (versus saturated fats) can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart attack. Sesame seeds also contain lignans and phytosterols (two types of plant compounds that can have cholesterol-lowering effects). Sesame solves migraine. Mix 2 tablespoons of sesame oil with 10 drops of eucalyptus and pine essential oil. Soak the gauze and keep it on the forehead and head area for half an hour. Every night before going to bed, soak 1 large spoonful of sesame seeds in half a liter of yogurt and keep it until morning (if you need calcium). Drink the drink in the morning on an empty stomach or during breakfast.
