Pumpkin Seeds have definitely become quite a trendy snack of late and are quite the staple for the health food enthusiast.
There are many reasons that they are great, from their essential fatty acid content, through to the fibre they contain. However, in terms of men's health, pumpkin seeds top the lot due to the high level of one particular nutrient: zinc.
Zinc is one of the single most important nutrients for men's health. It is needed for the production of testosterone, and our stores are rapidly used for this task daily. A low intake of zinc can lead to a drop in testosterone levels in a matter of weeks. Zinc also has an important role to play in sperm motility, so is an essential nutrient to top up on if you are thinking of starting a family.
