Super Healthy Seeds You Should Eat Daily

Posted by Editorial Staff in Health and Fitness On 13th August 2017

When it comes to your nutritional health, size doesn’t matter. At least, that’s what some seeds have proved. Yes, you heard it right. The minuscule component of a fruit or flower is packed with proteins, fiber, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, they are even referred to as super seeds.

You can snack on them, add them to your smoothies, cereals, whip up a delicious yogurt, or can even use them to garnish your salads. We bring you some of these power-packed seeds and their nutritional benefits.

#1

Seeds are nutritional powerhouses: Just a small pinch of them is packed with vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients.

Seeds are the “eggs” that contain the nutrients needed to nourish the growth of a new plant. To expect them to be choc-a-block with nutrients and other essential elements is a no brainer. Most of us either throw them away, or generally relegate these nutritional wonders to the occasional snack rather than making them staples of our diet. Having known the wonders of the self-healing prowess that our bodies possess, and how nourishing this internal system is the answer to healthy living, conferring them the status of super foods should not come as a surprise.

Considering the constant and unending debate over vegetarian diet not being able to bridge the deficiency gap (especially protein), seeds come as a boon to everyone wanting to stick to a non-meat option, without losing out on the nutrients. The amount of minerals and nutrients that come compressed in those small “natural” capsules is astounding. They are among the better plant sources of niacin, folic-acid contents, protein, iron, zinc and provide more fiber per ounce than nuts.
