The Mighty, Mighty Pumpkin Seed
Pumpkins are a fall staple that do not often get used to their full potential. Yes, we carve them into jack-o'-lanterns and decorate them for Halloween and even make mouth-watering recipes with them, but what about their seeds? Most people just throw them out, not realizing that they are chock-full of health benefits. Pumpkin seeds can make a nutritious snack but their properties are extremely beneficial when compounded into extracted form. The formulators at Life Sprout Bioceuticals™ know this and through extensive research, developed Bladder Brake which contains pumpkin seed extract. Bladder Brake, is a highly effective supplement that helps with OAB, nocturia and other uncomfortable bladder issues. It has also been proven to dramatically decrease bathroom breaks and leaks by up to 79%.
From a nutrition standpoint, pumpkin seeds are rich in iron, magnesium, zinc, antioxidants, and fiber. They can help reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol, keeping the heart healthy. Their increased level of magnesium can help to reduce blood sugar levels, especially for those dealing with type 2 diabetes.
Pumpkin seeds can be purchased from local health food stores ready to be eaten for a snack, used as a garnish on soups, salads or yogurt, or can be toasted fresh while carving your pumpkin for Halloween.
