On advantages of sunflower seeds
The advantages of sunflower seeds have been known since ancient times. It is no wonder that people began to eat seeds in their natural form long before they learned to squeeze useful and delicious oil out of them and immediately noticed the valuable nutritional and medicinal properties of this product. It is raw sunflower seeds that contain a record-breaking amount of phospholipids, fat-soluble vitamins, and sterols – substances that are referred to by researchers as having such properties as prolonging life, preserving youth and significantly improving human health.
Due to the fact that sunflower seeds are rich in potassium and magnesium, they are essential for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Eating sunflower seeds is also extremely useful in cases of atherosclerosis, liver and biliary tract diseases. The only peculiarity is that in-shell seeds retain more properties valuable for health than shelled ones since they do not oxidize. That is why husking (shelling the seed before immediately eating it) is the most useful way to eat them. Moreover, potassium and magnesium have a beneficial effect on maintaining the elasticity and resiliency of not only blood vessel walls but also the surface layers of skin. So it is safe to say that the advantages of sunflower seeds for beauty are there for all to see.
Sunflower seeds will also help to those who, for whatever reason, cannot eat dairy products and suffer from calcium deficiency. The seeds are very rich in this trace element as well. Therefore, they have a beneficial effect on the skeletal system preventing such diseases as osteoporosis and rheumatism. Other useful properties of sunflower seeds:
they contain a large amount of vitamin E, which has an anti-age effect on the skin;
The substances contained in sunflower seeds are able to level the acid-base balance in the body: for example, even severe heartburn can be soothed with a small handful of sunflower seeds in a matter of minutes;
Psychologists also consider sunflower seeds to be useful: they claim that the very process of shelling seeds calms the nerves and relieves the tension no worse than medical drugs.
Despite all the advantages of sunflower seeds, it is worth remembering that this is a high-calorie product, as seeds are rich in protein and fat. For comparison, 100 g of sunflower seeds contain about 800 calories, which is 4 times more than meat, 3 times more than bread, and almost 10 times more than vegetables and fruit. Therefore, sunflower seeds should be consumed moderately.
