Pumpkin seeds. “Excessive exposure to the bad UV rays of the sun together with other lifestyle factors may cause oxidative damage”. This can lead to premature skin aging, which will increase the appearance of pigmentation and wrinkles. The antioxidants, vitamins A and E, contained in pumpkin seeds aid combating free radical formation and thereby, decrease the incidence of premature aging. General speaking, raw pumpkin seeds as well as its powder contain stress releasing together with sleep inducing properties. That’s because pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium plus amino acid tryptophan as well. Zinc present in pumpkin seeds also aids our brain in order to convert tryptophan into serotonin.
