I would like to share with you a little information about a symbol of our Web-site - Sunflower and its seeds of course.
Ancient Inca were the first ones to grow sunflowers, and considered their blossom cluster as a symbol of the sun-god. Vincent van Gogh personified these flowers as a connection to the Sun and his fortunate period of life. Seven canvases, sculpted by dabs, with heavy blossom clusters that are flexibly turning after the sun, became the symbol of this great artist.
Truly the sunflower fully reflects the sun, absorbs more solar energy than any other flower, and also produces more seeds. Consumption of fried seeds is like a meditation, because you totally concentrate on the process, and actually consume powerful packed solar energy with them.
Sunflower seeds are very healthy for the people of all ages. It has been scientifically confirmed that these seeds prolong life span, and maintain vitality. They contain a full complex of essential micro elements: potassium, zinc, calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium, polyunsaturated fatty acids and amino acids, including methionine, which takes active part in lipometabolism. By the way there is more methionine in sunflower seeds than in peanuts, Circassian walnuts and hazelnuts.
