Just to back up my pumpkin protein post with knitty kitty great info on nutrients she listed I pulled a little fact tid bit on it.


Pumpkin
Are rich in Magnesium, zinc, Iron, copper, b-vitamins along with the vitamins K and E. They are also a great source of various amino acids, and are alkaline forming so they help balance diets high in acidic foods and to maintain a balance of you bodies PH levels.
Pumpkin seeds and the powder from pumpkin seeds have relatively high amounts of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is the amino acid the body uses to make the feel-good and relaxation neurotransmitter serotonin and niacin.
Pumpkin seeds also contain high amounts of zinc, which can help the brain convert tryptophan into serotonin. Zinc is also a natural protector against osteoporosis.
According to various studies, pumpkin seed prevents calcium oxalate kidney stone formation, and reduced inflammation for arthritis without the side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs.
Pumpkin seeds contain phytosterols, compounds that that have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol
Pumpkin seed oil is rich in natural phytoestrogens and studies suggest it may lead to a significant increase in good "HDL" cholesterol along with decreases in blood pressure, hot flashes, headaches, joint pains and other menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women.5
