Three Super Seeds We Should All Be Eating

Don't judge food by its size! These teeny-tiny superseeds are packed with essential nutrients such as protein, iron and omega-3 fatty acids.

Three Super Seeds We Should All Be Eating

Pumpkin seeds

Also known as pepitas, these seeds are a brilliant source of vitamin B, iron, magnesium and protein, and are also rich in the amino acid, tryptophan, which may lower anxiety. Pumpkin seeds also have high levels of essential fatty acids that lower bad cholesterol.

Flax seeds

Nutty flax has cancer-thwarting compounds called lignans and omega-3 fatty acids that reduce disease-causing inflammation. A great source of soluble fibre, which also helps lower cholesterol, flax makes you feel full longer and aids in stabilising blood sugar levels.

Wheat germ

The nutritional powerhouse of the wheat kernel, wheat germ is loaded with protein, iron and vitamin B. A small part of the kernel, this slightly sweet seed also have inulin; a type of fibre that helps maintain good digestion. It’s also low on the glycemic index, so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar.
