A seed is a mature fertilized plant ovule enclosed in a covering called the seed coat. It consists of an embryo and stored food. Many seeds are edible and they make rich dietary sources of essential nutrients. Examples of edible seeds include nuts, legumes and whole grains.
Seeds contain amino acids, vitamins, carbohydrates, fibre, minerals, oils, lignans, mucilage and antioxidants. The protein in seeds is easily digested and helps add lean mass to your body. The fibre in seeds helps cleanse the metabolic waste and dried mucus in gut and protects against the risks of constipation and colon cancer. Lignans in seeds exhibit anticancer, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. The B vitamins in seeds help release energy from food, improve immune system, promote cell growth and reproduction, and help maintain the health of your skin.
