A study by Indian researchers showed that proteins extracted from its seeds have unique effects in treating high blood sugar. Pumpkin is also a valuable source of magnesium, the anti-stress mineral par excellence, which helps relax muscles and nervous tension, benefiting the body and mood. Pumpkin contains tryptophan, an amino acid that stimulates the production of serotonin, a hormone essential against mild depression and nervous hunger. Also for this reason, it is recommended for menopausal women suffering from hormonal and mood swings.
