We are in the fall feeling here at Gerbs, with our BOGO 50% Pumpkin Seed Sale. The first Wednesday in October offers up the seasonal delight, National Pumpkin Seed Day! As the temperatures cool and the leaves turn, snack on these delicious tidbits.

Many of us have fond memories of roasting these delicious nuggets after carving the Jack o’ lantern. However, we never realized just how good (and good for us) they were. Surprisingly, pumpkin seeds have been valued for their dietary and medicinal properties for thousands of years. In fact, pumpkin seeds have been traced back as far as 7000 BC, according to archaeologists excavating a tomb in central Mexico.

Nutritional Value of Pumpkin Seeds

One of the best, most alkaline sources of nutrition you can eat. Pumpkin seeds are incredibly high in iron, magnesium, and contain a larger amount of protein than chia or flax per ounce, boasting a total of 7 grams per ounce. They’re also rich in B vitamins and are the only seed to have an alkalizing effect on the body, though many others are considered alkaline in nature. This means pumpkin seeds help counteract acidity and at the same time, provide the support your body needs to feel its best. They even contain high amounts of anxiety-relieving trytophan, an essential amino acid, which helps improve serotonin levels.


Pumpkin Seeds are loaded with the amino acid tryptophan, which aids in the production of serotonin in the brain. A balance of the neurotransmitter serotonin is responsible for regulating mood, sleep, and appetite.


Pumpkin Seeds have a high content of phytosterols, plant-based compounds that can reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Pumpkin seeds and other foods are naturally rich in phytosterols.


Pumpkin Seeds contains zinc and other antioxidants to reduce the risk of prostate disease.
