Sunflower seeds are popular in trail mix, multi-grain bread and nutrition bars, as well as for snacking straight from the bag.
They’re rich in healthy fats, beneficial plant compounds and several vitamins and minerals.
These nutrients may play a role in reducing your risk of common health problems, including heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Sunflower Seeds Uses:
- Sprinkle shelled sunflower seeds on your salad for a crunchy boost of fibre, fat, and protein.
- Mix salted sunflower seeds, almonds, cacao nibs, and dried cherries together for a salty and sweet trail mix.
- Use sunflower seeds in baked goods like muffins and bread.
Sunflower Seeds Benefits:
Heart Disease - A compound in sunflower seeds blocks an enzyme that causes blood vessels to constrict. This helps your blood vessels relax, lowering your blood pressure which helps prevent heart attack or stroke.
Diabetes - eating sunflower seeds daily as part of a healthy diet may reduce fasting blood sugar by about 10% within six months, compared to a healthy diet alone.
Inflammation - sunflower seeds contain vitamin E which lowers chronic inflammation.
