EFORIRO HEALTH BENEFITS
Eforiro has pumpkin as its component and it beneficial for the following purposes
- Feel fuller: Pumpkin seeds pack about 1.7 grammes of dietary fibre per ounce, while mashed pumpkin has only 50 calories per cup and 3 grammes of fibre. “Fibre helps keep you fuller longer, which keeps your appetite at bay so you eat less overall
- Boost Vision: A cup of cubed pumpkin contains almost twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which promotes good vision, especially in dim light, according to the National Institutes of Health. It has also been found to slow the decline of retinal function in those with retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease that can lead to blindness, according to researchers from Harvard.
- Lowers blood pressure: Pumpkin seed oil is full of phytoestrogens, which research shows are beneficial for preventing hypertension. When researchers fed rats a diet supplement with the oil, they found that it helped lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in just 12 weeks.
- Pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan, the amino acid that contributes to post-Thanksgiving-dinner sleepiness, says Virgin. Tryptophan is also responsible for helping the body make serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitter that helps you relax and unwind. Not only do pumpkin seeds promote better sleep, the serotonin will improve your mood
- Pumpkins — especially the seeds — are rich in beta-carotene and other antioxidants with cancer protective properties, says Virgin. And pumpkin seeds could be especially healthy for men.
- have a healthier heart: All that fibre can also help protect your ticker, research shows. One Harvard study of over 40,000 male health professionals found that those who ate a diet high in fibre had a 40 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease, compared to those who ate a diet low in fibre. A more recent study by Swedish researchers found that women who ate a diet high in fibre had a 25 percent lower risk of heart disease compared with women who ate a low-fibre diet. Men benefitted less, likely because they’re more likely to get their fibre from bread, while women are more likely to get their fibre from healthier sources, like fruits and vegetables, the researchers write.
