Good morning! I’m Zane from Atlantis Skincare and today we are going to talk about – guess… Pumpkins! So this is the time of year when we really shopping and curving and thinking about pumpkins.
But unfortunately this big berry, which is berry, not vegetable, actually is a
little bit forgotten. One fact about it – we can still eat it! And actually, to be
honest, this is amazing, amazing plant amazing berry to use in your menu.
Because it contains vitamin A which is retinol, which is anti-aging vitamin.
Vitamin E is moisturizing vitamin vitamin C which is making collagen
in our body. Vitamins B, whole group of vitamins B, which is part of our
nervous system. Also it contains magnesium which is together, together
with vitamin B it’s working on our nervous system. So it’s calming down as it’s making us more, like fluent in life, so basically more of us, we do
needs these two vitamins. Also this amazing berry is unique because it
contains a plant flavonoids and different particles which are making cartridges
collagen in our body, our nails all the ligaments and on
our bones. So this is kind of replacement for animal world collagen. So this is amazing for people who are vegetarians or vegans. Actually for all

really good for weight loss. My mom did experiment. She was eating the same as
she was eating, but she started to use a powder of pumpkin, and she lost some
weight quite rapidly within couple of weeks. And she is in her 80s. So basically it’s helping to lose weight because of as it is as a plant. So

And when they are dry – just remove this white, white outside and inside it’s going to be pumpkin seed as you know it. So, also you can use this part as a face
