Seeds

All seeds are little ‘power plants’ of energy with all the nutrients, such as protein and vitamins, needed for development. In fact they are positively bursting with energy, so there’s no surprise that these nutritional wonders can play an important role in any healthy balanced diet.

Sunflower Seeds

These could be considered a ‘super seed’; they have it all, protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Sunflower seeds are low in saturated fat, and contain a healthy combination of Omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, crucial to the diet as the body cannot produce them itself – that’s why they’re called ‘essential’. These ‘good fats’ are vital for cell maintenance and helping to regulate blood clotting, blood pressure, immune function and reproduction – all the birds and the bees stuff!

Sunflowers seeds are one of the best whole food sources of vitamin E, an antioxidant that mops up harmful free radicals, protecting our cells and cell membranes from damage and reducing our risk of serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

If that’s not enough for one little seed, they are also high in folic acid, selenium, iron and zinc, which are all essential for a healthy happy body.
