Delicious
(NaturalNews) Research shows that pumpkin seeds are a great libido booster. Pumpkin seeds are one of nature's most perfect foods. They taste delicious, make great snacks, and add nutrient rich flavor and texture to salads and many other dishes. They contain many libido vitamins including the B vitamins, and vitamins E, C, D, and K. They also contain essential sex drive minerals like calcium, potassium, niacin, and phosphorous.

Most importantly, pumpkin seeds contain high loads of zinc, which is important for preventing testosterone deficiency in men.

As men begin to age, there is a natural decline in zinc. A zinc deficiency can lead to prostate enlargement, as well as other male sexual health problems including impotency. This is due to the fact that prostate tissues are highly dependent on zinc.

Zinc is one of the primary nutrients in sperm production, and increases sperm count and sperm motility. High zinc levels also reduce the risk of prostate disease.

Adequate zinc also prevents the formation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). When testosterone levels decline, the prostate gland converts the testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. DHT breaks down testosterone, causing a range of problems including prostate enlargement, balding in men, and potentially even prostate cancer.

Pumpkin seeds can also help to sustain lubrication and boost female sex drive.

Myosin, an amino acid found in pumpkin seeds, is known to be essential for muscular contractions, which may be necessary for good sex.

Pumpkin seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are the precursors of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that play a key role in sexual desire and sexual health. Essential fatty acids also natural antidepressants and help balance the mind, which is vital for an optimum sex life.

In Addition to higher sex drive, pumpkin seeds may also provide these benefits:

* Improved Bladder Function

* Prevention of Osteoporosis

* Natural Anti-Inflammatory

* Prevention of Kidney Stones

* Lowered Cholesterol

* Cancer Prevention

* Prevention of Heart Disease and Decreased Libido
