The fiber in jackfruit seeds helps regulate bowel movements and prevent constipation, while the antioxidants present can protect the body from oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. The potassium and dietary fiber contribute to heart health by regulating blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and the high vitamin C content boosts the immune system. Additionally, the vitamins and antioxidants improve skin and hair health, promoting a youthful appearance and reducing signs of aging. B vitamins in jackfruit seeds play a crucial role in converting food into energy, maintaining energy levels. Jackfruit seeds can be boiled or roasted and eaten as a snack, added to curries and stews, or ground into flour for baking or thickening agents.
