Pumpkin cultivation has an extensive history, spanning as far back as 10,000 years ago. Known as the ?seed of the squash? in Mexican Spanish, pumpkin seeds have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years ? notably for anti-parasite properties. Both ancient Chinese and native American medicine used pumpkin seeds as a remedy for intestinal parasites and since then, the little green seeds have been listed as an antiparasitic by the US pharmacopeia.
Belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family, pumpkin seeds are dark green and oval shaped. They are harvested from mature pumpkins, hidden beneath a white shell within the orange pumpkin fibre. Our organic pumpkins seeds grow in Austria and are GMO and pesticide free, with a guaranteed purity of 99.99%.
