Interestingly, eating hemp seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease. The seeds contain high amounts of the amino acid arginine, which produces nitric oxide in your body. Nitric oxide is a gas molecule that makes your blood vessels dilate and relax, leading to lowered blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease.
The gamma-linolenic acid found in hemp seeds has also been linked to reduced inflammation, which may decrease your risk of diseases like heart disease.
Hemp seeds may reduce symptoms associated with PMS and menopause, thanks to its high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

THERE’S MORE TO PUMPKIN THAN MEETS THE EYE You may think of pumpkin as a festive fall decoration or the ingredient for the perfect pie, but pumpkin has other uses. Pumpkin seed oil, for example, has certain health benefits.
Pumpkin seed oil is said to help promote urinary health and heart health. It’s full of vitamins and anti-inflammatory agencies, along with linoleic and oleic acid. Here’s what you need to know about this fruit’s potential health benefits. Traditionally, pumpkin seed oil and pumpkin seeds in general have been said to boost mood and ward off depression.
You may know that saturated fats aren’t good for healthy hearts. But it can still be confusing to know which fats are OK to eat. Pumpkin seed oil is actually an unsaturated fat, meaning it’s the “good” kind of fat. Unsaturated fats like pumpkin seed oil can actually promote a healthy heart. Pumpkin seed oil, along with palmetto oil, has shown promising results as an alternative therapy for benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). BPH is a common condition where the prostate becomes enlarged. This can be extremely painful and block the flow of urine.
In general, pumpkin seed oil seems to have a positive effect on the urinary tract. This tract is made up of the kidneys, the bladder, and the urethra, which connects the bladder to the urinary opening. In one study, pumpkin seed oil was found to help relieve some of the symptoms of menopause. This included a decrease in hot flashes, joint pain, and headaches. The women taking pumpkin seed oil also had an increase in their HDL levels, which is the “good” cholesterol.
THE BEST OF CHILLIES (CAPSAICIN) Low in calories. Jalapenos are very filling and satisfy hunger without increasing the calorie count.
One serving of jalapenos contains 66 percent of vitamin C. Vitamin C could stimulate the immune system to produce white blood cells, which are the body’s first primary line of defense against illness. Chillies contain vitamin C to fight free radicals that can help prevent the mutation of healthy cells into cancer cells.
Studies have suggested that chillies may provide pain relief for migraine headaches. Capsaicin is known to inhibit a key neuropeptide, Substance P, which is the critical brain pain transmitter.
Capsaicin is a potent anti-inflammatory agent. It inhibits Substance P, which is associated with inflammatory processes. Capsaicin could treat arthritis, psoriasis, and diabetic neuropathy one day.
Chillies provide the brain the necessary amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Some vitamins, including folate or folic acid, play a significant role in the regulation of specific amino acids that the nervous system requires. Studies have shown that a deficient amount of dietary folate can increase the homocysteine levels, which can be a dangerous precursor to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
Jalapenos are an excellent source of the B-vitamin complex, such as folate or folic acid. Folate has shown to help in neural tube formation and red blood cell formation in prenatal babies. A deficiency of folic acid in pregnant women can lead to the birth of underweight infants and may also result in neural tube defects in newborns. One cup of jalapenos contains 11 percent of the daily recommended value of folate.
