Helps ease cramps and spasms
The magnesium present in the sunflower seeds and sesame helps relax the blood vessels. The calcium in the body bonds with other compounds and results in blood vessel contractions. The usual muscle spasms and cramps are a signal that UR magnesium levels are low.
Act as building blocks
Sesame seeds are rich in vitamin B. The various versions of this vitamin helps build metabolism, digestion, increases blood level and more. If this vitamin is absent from the body, we are susceptible to health issues like anaemia, muscle weakness, muscle coordination, mouth ulcers and poor absorption of nutrients.
Chia seeds help increase satiety and result in decreased calorie intake. This might be indirectly beneficial for weight loss. When chia seeds are coupled with healthy dietary and lifestyle changes, they can help lose weight, by helping them stay satiated for a longer period.
Did you know that sunflower seeds are technically a fruit of the sunflower plant?
Sunflower seeds have an exceptionally high concentration of vitamin E and selenium. These compounds protect the cells of your body from free radical damage and protect you from several chronic diseases.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine extract) and electrolytes in sunflower seeds can provide vast quantities of energy in the body to make it agile and active. The magnesium content in the seeds help flush toxins out of our body and detox naturally.
Contain high methionine and cysteine compounds that help with muscle and tissue growth in the body. Compounds like lignans, vitamin E and other antioxidants in sesame seeds can prevent plaque build-up in the arteries and stabilize fluctuating blood pressure.
