Pumpkins aren't just for decoration - they could help improve your sleep, too.
There are a number of pumpkin seed powders on the market but I prefer eating the real thing whenever possible - and at this time of year, you have no excuse for going direct to the source!
For best results, you want to consume pumpkin seeds with carbohydrates since this aids absorption.
Pumpkins are considered a low-carbohydrate food, so don't think you can just sit down, eat an entire pumpkin and sleep like a baby (although you may experience some kind of food coma).
Instead, incorporate those pumpkin seeds into an insomnia busting recipe such as a pumpkin and sunflower seed bread.
Just be sure to send some my way, too!
