The many benefits of Pumpkin

Benefits of Pumpkin

Skin
Pumpkins and the seeds within the pumpkin have oils which are ideal for dry and sensitive skin. (Sandra Klein Half Moon Bay, CA (PRWEB) April 09, 2013)  Pumpkin is excellent for use on all skin types, but especially if your skin is damaged from environmental conditions such as overexposure to the sun. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which soothes and softens your skin, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help to remedy damage produced by free radicals, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Skin care products containing pumpkin such as exfoliators and moisturizers can be used on all skin types to help remove old surface skin cells and promote new cell production. (Info from Livestrong)

Sexual health
In a study cited by the New York Times, esearchers at the Chicago foundation asked men attached to a plethysmograph, a device measuring changes in volume in various parts of the body, to sniff 30 odors. All of the smells aroused them, with the combination of lavender and pumpkin pie having the greatest effect (increasing blood flow 40 percent).  Research also shows many benefits for sexual organs, specifically prostate health, perhaps there are deeper evolutionary drivers for the pumpkin preference.  A 2006 study published in “Urologia Internationalis” showed that pumpkin seeds contain compounds called phytosterols, which may be responsible for shrinking the prostate and preventing transformation of testosterone into DHT. (3) Pumpkin seeds also contain antioxidants called carotenoids; men who consume more carotenoids in their diet have a lowered risk for BPH. Finally, pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, another important nutrient for mens’ sexual health.

Sleeping
Pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil is high in the sleep-enhancing amino acid tryptophan that converts to serotonin in your body and helps ensure a good night’s sleep. (1) They’re also high in the heart-healing mineral magnesium, which has been shown to support relaxation and also help with restless leg syndrome.
Weight-management 
Pumpkin seeds offer high levels of easily-digestible protein helps stabilize blood sugar when eaten as a snack throughout the day. Stable blood sugar means weight loss if you’re trying to lose.
Topical Benefits 
Pumpkin seed oil is used in aromatherapy massage not only for its pleasing scent, but its skin rejuvenating qualities via high levels of essential fatty acids easily absorbed by the skin plus an assortment of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and plant sterols, which aid in balancing cholesterol in the body. As an added bonus, pumpkin seeds also contain anti-inflammatory properties that may slow the progression of arthritis. (4)

Panera Bread CEO Living Off $4.50 a Day for Hunger Awareness

It’s a good challenge and our hats off to him for doing it!

NewsFeed

What’s it like to live on just $4.50 a day, the rough cost of a Burger King Whopper Jr. meal? Panera Bread CEO Ron Shaich, who makes $3 million a year, is finding out himself and telling the world about it.

Through participation in the SNAP challenge, a program in which he will live for a month on the average daily benefit provided by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (better known to those who are compelled to live on it as food stamps), Shaich says he will experience what it is like to do without.

“Despite everything I have learned about hunger and the various efforts I’ve undertaken to try to make a dent in the problem, I have never actually experienced hunger firsthand,” said Shaich, who was inspired by an article in The New York Times, and is recording his experience through posts on his Linked In…
