Some of the information is obtained from generally available sources
1. Reduces Inflammation
Replacing saturated fats with healthy, unsaturated fats makes a deep impact on the amount of inflammation in your body. In fact, a research study in 2015 found the replacement of pumpkin seed oil in the diet of people suffering from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the walls of the arteries) reduced the effects of these diseases on test subjects.
2. Nutritional Aid for Cancer Patients
You read that right! While there is no “cure” for cancer, pumpkin seed oil has been proven in several studies to support the health of cancer patients and/or a reduced risk of cancer. Pumpkin seeds are one vegetable seed proven to reduce the risk of breast cancer in post-menopausal women.
3.Good for Prostate Health
Perhaps the most well-documented aid of pumpkin seed oil for health is its vast effectiveness on maintaining a healthy prostate. It has been known to protect against prostate cancer, but it’s also great for prostate health in general!
4. Encourages Mental Well-being
We all need to consider the health of our brains and mental states. Pumpkin seed oil can help you do that in more than one way — the Cucurbita maxima compound of this oil improves memory, while its tryptophan content is a scientifically proven, effective treatment for social anxiety disorder. Insomnia also may be reduced by the tryptophan in pumpkin seed oil, as it breaks down easily within the body into serotonin to induce peaceful sleep.
5. Fights Hair Loss in Men
The management of hormones in a healthy diet is key to stopping and/or reversing hair loss, as it is linked to an increase in an androgen hormone, DHT (diHydroxy Testosterone). Pumpkin seeds act as a hair loss remedy due to their zinc content, which helps balance hormones, thus in turn benefits hair growth.
6. Great for Heart Health
Is it any surprise that an anti-inflammatory supplement would be great for the heart? Through a process that may involve the production of nitric oxide, pumpkin seed oil exhibits antihypertensive and cardioprotective effects, meaning it can protect you from heart disease and/or heart attacks.
7. Treats Diabetes
Diabetes has many causes, one of which is poor diet. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are manageable, and even treatable, with good diet strategies and supplements. Possibly due in part to its low glycemic load (along with other factors), pumpkin seed oil is scientifically proven to be a considerable antihyperglycemic, or natural diabetes treatment.
8. Soothes Overactive Bladder
A 2014 study published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicinesuggests pumpkin seeds oil extracts (from both the Cucurbita pepo and Cucurbita maxima varieties) effectively treat urinary disorders, specifically overactive bladder.
