What really makes the sunflower seed unique is that they are a rich source of magnesium, phosphorous, vitamin E, and selenium. They are incredibly nutrient-dense…we should probably take some notes from the birds when we see them frantically searching through the seed mix looking for these guys!

Selenium is a trace mineral that has been getting a lot of attention these days. It has been linked to a reduced incidence of cancer and has been shown to stimulate the repair of DNA in damaged cells and induce cancer cell death.
