3. Promoting muscle synthesis.
Pumpkin seed protein is different from ordinary vegetable protein. It contains a lot of glutamic acid. Glutamate first synthesizes glutamine in human body. Experimental studies have shown that glutamine can increase the volume of muscle cells, stimulate muscle protein synthesis, and improve muscle vitality to make muscle growth. At present, whey protein is commonly used in the market as muscle powder raw materials, but whey protein is animal-derived protein vegetarians which are not suitable to eat. And whey protein contains milk allergens, while pumpkin seed protein is vegetable protein that does not contain any allergens, allergic constitution.
Enzymatic hydrolysis of pumpkin seed protein was obtained.And the DPPH clearance rate was 83.47%. So the hydrolysis of pumpkin seed protein had antioxidant effect.
5. Improving male reproductive capacity.
Pumpkin seed protein can improve sperm motility, improve sperm quality, promote sperm fertilization and provide kinetic energy for sperm movement. Arginine in pumpkin seed protein is not only involved in sperm formation, but also an essential component of various nuclear proteins in sperm. It can also dilate arteries and blood vessels through nitric oxide pathway.
