May Help Prevent and Fight Sickness

Sunflower seeds can be a good source of zinc and selenium. These two minerals may play a role in fighting and preventing sickness. Zinc contributes to the body's immune system function, and it works as an antioxidant to fight off free radicals.

Selenium may help a person stay healthy due to its immune system-boosting abilities that help the body respond to any intruders, as well as its capacity to fight inflammation and infection.
