A nutrition expert reveals the benefits of pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain a unique mineral composition and a number of beneficial properties, so eating them has a positive effect on the nervous system, bones, kidneys, and other organs and systems.
Dr. Yelena Tikhomirova, a Russian nutrition expert, indicated in an interview with the newspaper "Izvestia" that in addition to that, it is considered an aphrodisiac.

According to her, pumpkin seeds contain the same calorie content as nuts (100 grams contain about 550 calories), half of which consists of fat. They also contain protein and a small amount of carbohydrates, and have a unique mineral composition. Pumpkin seeds are widely used in Parasite control.

She says: “About 60 grams (a handful) of pumpkin seeds contain the body’s daily need for magnesium, which is necessary to relax the nervous system and muscles. It also has a decongestant and anti-anxiety effect, and improves sleep.”

In addition, 60 grams of pumpkin seeds contain the body’s daily need of phosphorus, which is necessary for the health of the skeletal system, as well as cobalt, manganese, and copper, which are involved in the blood formation process. Therefore, it is useful for people suffering from anemia.

She says: “100 grams of pumpkin seeds contain the body’s daily need of chromium and zinc. Chromium is necessary for regulating carbohydrate metabolism in the blood and helps reduce appetite. As for zinc, it is a mineral that participates in the formation of sperm and improves the production of male sex hormones and sperm. Therefore, seeds can be called Pumpkin - a natural aphrodisiac.

In addition, pumpkin seeds contain substances that positively affect the flow of bile, and have antioxidant properties that are beneficial to the liver. But if a person suffers from a disease, he should consult a doctor before including it in his diet.

The doctor advises not to eat more than 50 grams of pumpkin seeds at a time.


“External signs” of heart disease

French scientists believe that deep wrinkles on the forehead are an external sign of atherosclerosis, which leads to the formation of cholesterol plaques and a decrease in collagen production.

According to them, the presence of wrinkles on the forehead may indicate that the risk of death due to heart disease increases by 10 percent.

But can heart disease really be diagnosed through external signs such as wrinkles?

Dr. Alexander Myasnikov comments on common beliefs about external signs of heart disease, and warns that external signs are not always a reason for diagnosing the disease.

Cholangiocarcinoma is a benign tumor that appears on the skin, mucous membranes, and soft tissues, and appears in many people. Its appearance is usually caused by high levels of cholesterol in the blood. That is, in this case, the talk will not be about heart disease, but rather about liver stagnation.

- A white rim around the iris. Patients with atrial fibrillation often take a very potent and dangerous medication called amiodarone, which can deposit around the iris in the form of a ring. There are also so-called "aging" headbands. But more often than not, the white rim is a symptom of a cholesterol metabolism disorder.

- Permanent facial redness. Permanent facial redness can be a personality trait. For example, some people become pale due to anger, fear, and other factors, while others turn red.

- Blue nails. Indeed, some diseases can be diagnosed based on the condition of the nails, especially diabetes, cancer and lungs. Blue and white nails are observed in alcoholics, people with liver disease, and sometimes in people suffering from chronic diseases and heart failure. As for fingers resembling a “drumbeater” that is wide at the end with a large nail with a blue base, it is a sure sign of heart disease.

- Neck pulse. All thin people notice a clear pulse in their neck, and this is normal. But it often occurs in patients with heart failure and pericarditis. Blue lips and swollen neck veins are very important symptoms that indicate heart disease.

- Edema. The causes of edema are different, but may indicate heart failure.

He warns: “If the cause of the swelling of the legs is not unknown, but rather due to the heart specifically or resulting from a serious systemic disease - the liver, heart, kidneys - then it actually indicates a very advanced medical condition.”
