Summer is the season of one of my favorite flowers - sunflowers! Not only are they beautiful, but their seeds are also packed with health benefits. Here are some of them:

• Heart health
Sunflower seeds contain vitamin E (over 60% of your daily value in each serving!), and they also contain folate, both of which improve cardiovascular health

What to look fo when buying sunflower seeds: 
Some brands pack their sunflower seeds with unhealthy additives and sodium - look for brands (preferably organic) with fewer ingredients and not too much salt. There are also great sunflower butters, another great way to get your serving of sunflower seeds!
