Health Benefits

Supports Healthy Digestion
Foods with fiber support and maintain a healthy digestive system. Fiber is the hard part of carbohydrates to digest, better say its indigestible. It helps to improve bowels by digestion, absorption, regulating food ingestion, and metabolism.
The kernel of a sunflower seed gives some fiber, but if you eat the whole seed, you will benefit more as the hull is entirely fiber.

Eases Constipation
Studies show that increasing your dietary fiber intake increases stool frequency in people with constipation. If you consume foods with fiber, you may get a laxative effect. It may be a health benefit for many people.

Healthy Weight Maintenance
Fiber helps in satiety (feeling full). A feeling of fullness helps avoid mindless eating, which leads to overeating and, therefore, weight gain.

Limits Cell Damage
Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that helps in normal nerve function and boosts immunity. Moreover, it is also known to have antioxidant properties.

Antioxidants protect the body from cellular damage that is caused by free radicals.
Experts recommend that you get antioxidants from food sources rather than supplements. Foods like vegetables, fruits, and seeds provide antioxidants along with other nutrients.

Allergies
If you might have a seed allergy or if you suspect an allergy to sunflower seeds, consult with your healthcare provider or family doctor for personalized advice.

Adverse Effects
You may encounter unfavorable effects from eating whole sunflower seeds, mainly if you eat a lot. The hull—or outer shell—might be sharp and hard to digest. Additionally, consuming too many hulls can cause fecal impaction (FI), a severe form of constipation, since fiber is only helpful with large amounts of water.

Please be mindful when eating sunflower seeds in hulls, every food has health benefits when consumed in moderation and with intention.
