Did you know that the seeds produced by sunflowers are packed with nutrition?  They are full of iron, second only to egg yolks and liver. 

They are also an excellent source of Vitamin E, which has significant anti-inflammatory effects that can help in the reduction of symptoms in asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Sunflower seeds are rich in phytosterols, which are believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response and decrease risk of certain cancers.

Sunflower seeds are also a good source of magnesium, and selenium.
