The wonders of "Pumpkins"
So yesterday we spoke of ways to get in shape this fall . . .
Well today . . . we're going to discover how "pumpkin seeds" can help.
As we now know . . . "pumpkin seeds" contain powerful anti-parasitic properties which can help eliminate various parasitic infections in the body. Which by the way . . . is a very common cause of weight gain in the U.S.
And believe it or not . . . at least 14% of the U.S. population . . . that's about 3.7 million people are affected with parasitic infection (those are the ones that have been diagnosed) . . . but many of us don't even know this is our problem with poor health or weight issues.
But that's a topic for another day . . .
What we're going to concentrate on today is the "bad" bacteria I'm always talking about that can aid in "weight gain" and "cravings".
Now, remember from previous Health tips . . . when this "bad" bacteria in the body is overgrown and out of control . . . it can affect our hormone regulation process, metabolism, fat deposits and more.
But guess what???
Not only do "pumpkin seeds" help rid the body of parasites . . . they also contain powerful anti-fungal proteins that can kill and deplete a "bad" bacterial infection . . .even a vaginal yeast flare-up.
You see . . . "Pumpkin seeds" are loaded with healthy fats, magnesium and zinc. And have been known to be very beneficial for a healthy intestinal ecosystem.
So how exactly do "pumpkin seeds" help with weight loss???
Well . . . "pumpkin seeds" contain one of the highest sources of "zinc" when it comes to plant foods. And this extra zinc can inhibit and fight a "bad" bacterial overgrowth.
