Additional Health Benifits
PROSTATE - Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition that affects 25% of men in their 40's and over 50% of men in their 60's.
BPH is believed to be due to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) promoting proliferation of prostate cells. This results in an enlargement of the prostate gland and can lead to enlarged prostate, and create problems and discomfort when urinating.
The phytosterol beta-sitosterol is found in significant concentrations in pumpkin seed oil and helps block the damaging effects of DHT by inhibiting its conversion from testosterone. Pumpkin seed oil also contains the compound delta-7-sterine that specifically competes with DHT in the prostate and seems to help prevent prostate cell multiplication.
Alongside these two DHT blockers, pumpkin seed oil contains high levels of antioxidant carotenoids, omega-6 and omega 9 fatty acids and zinc, all of which may help reduce a man’s risk of developing BPH.
IBS - The benefits of Pumpkin seed oil may also extend to helping with the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The high fatty acid content may help reduce inflammation in the GI tract and people are reporting a lessening of symptoms when they take pumpkin seed oil regularly.
Pumpkin seed oil is used for its anti-inflammatory properties, and as a natural remedy for various eye problems, including macular degeneration. Using on a regular basis is linked to a better bone health, less intense arthritics pains, musculalr cramps.
One of the most commonly used pumpkin seed oil benefits is using calming properties of this oil to get rid of stresses, insomnia and other similar problems.

Pumpkin seeds have long been valued as an important natural food for men's health. This is in part because of their high zinc content, which is important for prostate health (where it is found in the highest concentrations in the body), and also because pumpkin seed extracts and oils may play a role in treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, or enlarged prostate). Research suggests that both pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin seed oil used in combination with saw palmetto may be particularly beneficial in supporting prostate health.
Pumpkin seed oil is rich in natural phytoestrogens and studies suggest it may lead to a significant increase in good "HDL" cholesterol along with decreases in blood pressure, hot flashes, headaches, joint pains and other menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women.
Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of zinc (one ounce contains more than 2 mg of this beneficial mineral), which is important for immunity, cell growth and division, sleep, mood, your senses of taste and smell, eye and skin health, insulin regulation, and male sexual function.
