Does the shell or Husk of the pumpkins seed have any calories?
I have read that the shell or husk is indigestible and that only the kernels have calories?
But then when I go to online calorie counters it appears that the shell or husk does have calories.
Please let me know if this is true.

I just started to take Pumpkin Seeds, but I will advise as to what I notice it helps me with.

I had taken a antibotic two years ago which destroyed my ligaments and severe pain in my left leg and into my feet; whereby it took me over one year six moths to rid my body of the drug. I became a distributer for a company that produces a several types of machines that take the toxins out of the system. I have been using them religiously.

I am now taking the pumpkin seeds to see if it will take pain out of my hands. I don't know if the pain is from using the computer or arthritis.

I will send in my update in the next month or so.

The only time I eat pumpkin seeds is when I carve pumpkins for Halloween and roast the seeds. Store-bought are disgusting!!

I love all kinds of nuts and seeds, especially pistachio nuts. In California I love Yurosek Farms for their slow roasted and home grown nuts.
