Enhances a restful sleep
It has been found that pumpkin seeds contain an amino acid known as tryptophan in large amounts. This protein building block is covered to serotonin by the body and then converted to melatonin or the ‘sleep hormone’ which ensures that you have a restful sleep. For this reason, if you have troubles falling sleep, it is advisable that you eat pumpkin seeds just a few hrs before retiring to bed. The seeds promote a restful sleep at night.
