Lettuce Discuss… Health Benefits!  
One teaspoon of poppy seeds has 4 percent of the recommended daily intake of both calcium and phosphorus, which combine to form the mineral used to build bones. You’ll also get 0.3 milligrams of Iron from a teaspoon of poppy seeds. In addition, you definitely need to consume the daily requirement because your body doesn’t store zinc and it must be available to fill significant jobs. Zinc is needed to support the structure of proteins and for the production and development of new cells. A zinc deficiency impairs your immune system because fewer immune-regulating and bacteria-fighting cells are produced. Men should consume 11 milligrams and women need 8 milligrams of zinc daily. One teaspoon of poppy seeds has 0.2 milligrams or 2 percent of the daily intake for men and 3 percent for women.
An easy way to add poppy seeds to your diet is by mixing them into salad dressings or sprinkling them into Gluten-Free pancakes.
