Every year thousands of people in our country are diagnosed with lactose intolerance . These people have a lactase deficiency, so that their body is not able to absorb the lactose properly in the small intestine, passing quickly to the large intestine without first having decomposed, starting to ferment.

It is even common for many people not to know. In this sense, many nutritionists advise paying attention to the symptoms or discomfort that may appear when drinking a glass of animal milk (for example cow). If you experience indigestion, abdominal pain, flatulence, diarrhea, skin problems … you may suffer from lactose intolerance.

Pumpkin Seed Milk: Delicious Benefits and Recipes

The solution is obviously to avoid the consumption of milk rich in lactose (such as those of animal origin)and opt for vegetable milks , which are obtained from seeds or plant products.

Benefits of Pumpkin Seed Milk

Milk obtained from pumpkin seeds provides almost the same nutritional benefits as pumpkin or pumpkin oil , as it maintains its nutritional richness intact.

Interesting nutritional qualities

On the one hand it is a drink extremely rich in healthy fatty acids, as is the case of fatty acids linoleic and linolenic. On the other hand it provides vitamins (vitamin A, E and F) and minerals (magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and iron).

Of course, not being rich in calcium, if we want this vegetable milk to become a good substitute for cow’s milk, it is best to add a cup of peeled raw almonds or sesame seeds to the preparation .

Useful against cholesterol and triglycerides

Pumpkin seeds provide healthy fatty acids , making it an excellent natural option when it comes to reducing high blood fats, particularly – as you probably know – both cholesterol (especially LDL cholesterol) and triglycerides.

Therefore, it is a very interesting vegetable drink in cases where there are high levels of cholesterol and / or triglycerides in the blood.

Excellent drink for men

Pumpkin seeds are especially rich in zinc , so it becomes an excellent natural drink for men, especially for those who want to have children.

The reason is found in that zinc is an essential essential nutrient and important for reproduction, helping to improve the quality of semen, as well as increase the amount of sperm.

Equally beneficial also for women

But its qualities are not only interesting for the man who wants to have children; it is also for the woman. Why? Very simple: for its richness in zinc is useful for the creation of new cells for growth.

In addition, it provides vitamin E, which  helps protect the eggs and helps to generate an adequate endometrium for proper fertilization and implantation.

Properties of pumpkin seed milk, in brief

Taking into account the different nutritional values ​​it brings, we can highlight the following benefits of pumpkin seed milk:

  • Thanks to its rich in fatty acids, it helps to maintain a good cardiovascular system, preventing cardiovascular diseases in turn.
  • Helps to care for and protect the health of the skin.
  • For its vitamin A content is useful to strengthen our eyesight.

How to Make Pumpkin Seed Milk

It is a suitable and healthy drink from a nutritional point of view, thanks to its richness in essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic), vitamins (vitamins A, E and F) and minerals (zinc, magnesium, phosphorus and iron).
