This hulled pumpkin seed can be eaten as a raw snack, similar to sunflower seeds. One-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds contains nearly half of the recommended daily amount of magnesium, which includes the creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the energy molecules of your body), the synthesis of RNA and DNA, the pumping of your heart, proper bone and tooth formation, relaxation of your blood vessels, and proper bowel function. Pumpkin seeds are also a rich source of zinc (important for immune support), omega 3 and are also a rich source of tryptophan and amino acid that can help you get a restful night's sleep.
