Seeds of life!

These are my four favorite seeds and I eat a spoonful of this mixture everyday! Not only do I feel better I also have a sharper memory and glow from within. We are what we eat! My advice to you, get a huge jar from IKEA, and mix these four seeds together (pumpkin and chia seeds are fantastic as well) and then sprinkle on your cereal, oatmeal, put in smoothies, on salads, sandwiches, or you can make crackers with them using a dehydrator.

Hemp Seeds: Hemp seeds have 3 unique nutritional factors: an ideal balance of Omega 3 and 6 for sustainable human health, a full amino acid spectrum meaning it provides complete protein (63% of this seed is protein), and it has a massive trace mineral content. Hemp seeds are the richest source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, phytonutrients, offers 9 of the 20 essential amino acids our bodies cannot produce on its own, and greatly strengthen the immune system.

Flax Seeds: Flax seeds have a huge nutrient payload. Flax seeds are extremely high in fiber, omega 3s, B-vitamins, magnesium, manganese and antioxidants, which stabilizes blood sugar, lowers cholesterol, aids, weight loss, and is great for your skin, nails and hair Also high in lignans which have been used to balance hormones, promote fertility, reduce menopausal symptoms, and prevent against breast cancer and Type 2 diabetes.

Sunflower Seeds: These seeds provide healthy fats, proteins, fibers, minerals, vitamin E, and phytochemicals, (antioxidants), including: choline, betaine, and phenolic acids. A great source of Vitamin E, and a safer way to consume this vitamin die to uncertainty of toxicity found in fish liver oils. Vitamin E may protect against cardiovascular disease, lignans may protect against some cancers, and choline has been shown to play a role in memory and cognitive functions. They are also among the best foods you can eat to get cholesterol-lowering phytosterols.

Sesame Seeds: These seeds contain large amounts of manganese, tryptophan and copper. Also contains calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. Sesame seeds contain lignans, which fight cholesterol, lower blood pressure and reduce oxidative damage (keeps you younger, more radiant and a better chance at remaining cancer free).
