The Benefits of Healthy Sunflower Seed Butter

Protein Rich

Three grams of protein in each serving of sunflower seed butter keeps muscles healthy, maximizes the benefits of exercise, and makes you feel fuller, so you eat less.

Vitamin E Rich

The antioxidant vitamin E balances cholesterol decreases free radicals, reduces cell damage, and can slow the effects of aging.

Helps Immunity

Vitamin E in sunflower seed butter helps your immune system fight infection. One serving will provide 24 percent of your body’s need for vitamin E.

Magnesium Rich

One tablespoon of sunflower seed butter contains 12 percent of your daily need of magnesium, helping relieve muscle spasms, improving digestion, elimination, and improving your sleep quality.


Sunflower seeds have a lot of fiber, aiding digestion. 

Low levels of magnesium caused by a leaking gut or medications can cause poor digestion, and GMOs in food can cause malabsorption of nutrients.

Rich in Healthy Fats

Healthy fats found in sunflower seed butter aid better absorption of nutrients, healthy skin, and the transportation of vitamins throughout the body.

Largely Unprocessed

Sunflower seed butter is usually less processed than other nut butter, with fewer unnecessary ingredients that can be harmful. Making your butter can be less expensive than buying it ready-made.
