Sunflower seeds boast a hearty source of protein; just one serving delivers 6 grams of this important nutrient. They also contain essential fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid, which have been linked to lowering blood sugar levels, reducing LDL “bad” cholesterol, and improving metabolism.
Rich in B-complex vitamins, organic sunflower seeds can improve energy levels, support red blood cell formation, promote the nervous system, and reduce anxiety. They are also plentiful in vitamin E and minerals such as selenium and magnesium.
Organic sunflower seeds are abundant in a class of antioxidants known as phytosterols, which have been linked to reducing serum cholesterol levels in humans. In fact, a 2005 study published in the American Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, found that sunflower seeds contain the highest phytosterol content of any nut.
These healthy, raw sunflower seeds make a delicious snack straight out of the bag! You can also try tossing them with salads, adding them to trail mix, and sprinkling them in baked goods. Their mild nutty flavor complements a wide range of dishes, from quinoa and pastas, to meats and vegetables. Get creative and add raw sunflower seeds to any of your favorite foods!
