Pumpkin Seeds 150g
Also known as pepitas these are a powerhouse of tryptophan (an essential amino acid), zinc and magnesium.
So what's the big deal about tryptophan? The body uses tryptophan to help make Melatonin and Serotonin. Melatonin helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle, and Serotonin is thought to help regulate appetite, sleep, mood, and pain. The liver can also use tryptophan to produce niacin (vitamin B3), which is needed for energy metabolism and DNA production. So it's really fab and you can't produce it - only get it from your diet. So if you're having trouble sleeping or any of the above challenges, then adding these into your mix is definitely worth it.
