Sunflower seeds

Sunflower seeds come from, of course, sunflowers! The yellow flowers produce small edible seeds which are gray or greenly colored and are found naturally in dark green, gray, or black shells called “husks”.

Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of many vital nutrients including Vitamin E, also known as gamma-tocopherol. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that is found in many nuts and seeds, but sunflower seeds are one of the best natural sources of this antioxidant, which works hard to fight free radical damage within the body.
