Sunflowers love basking the sun, standing tall on long summer days, almost kissing the blue sky.
Many people eat the large sunflowers seeds for their taste but the seeds themselves posses a great deal of health benefits.
Are they healthy?
Of course! Sunflower seeds are a great source of Vitamin E, Copper, Vitamin B1 and other beneficial trace nutrients!
Planting, growing and harvesting sunflowers is therapeutic in nature and the process helps relieve stress and release anxiety! A rapidly growing plant with gorgeous showy blooms, sunflowers are exciting and gratifying to observe as they grow, whether novice or experienced gardener!
Many of our friends in nature love sunflowers too: from the tiny insects that find shelter beneath the blooms and leaves, to pollinators like honeybees who love to collect the flowers‘ precious pollen, to birds that collect, eat, and help redistribute the seeds.
For such a little seed they have a wide variety of positive health benefits. From lowering cholesterol, to protecting the skin from against sun damange and signs of aging.
Dance in the sun and kiss the sky, for you are a beautiful sunflower!
