The Benefits of Eating Fruit Seeds
Fruit seeds are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They also contain antioxidants and phytochemicals that can boost your health in a number of ways. For example, grape seeds have been shown to improve heart health and reduce the risk of certain cancers. Apple seeds contain a compound called amygdalin that can help protect against Alzheimer’s disease. And pomegranate seeds are a good source of punicic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties.

In addition to being nutritious, fruit seeds can also be used in a number of different ways. For example, apple seeds can be used to make apple cider vinegar, while grape seeds can be made into grape seed oil or used as a natural food coloring. Pomegranate seeds can be added to smoothies or salads for a nutritional powerhouse punch, or made into pomegranate molasses, a tart and sweet condiment that’s perfect for meats or vegetables.

These little nutritional powerhouses are packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals that can boost your health in a number of ways. Additionally, fruit seeds can be used in a variety of different ways - from making vinegar to natural food coloring.
