What is Pumpkin Seed Oil?
What are the benefits of pumpkin seed oil supplementation?
Heart Health: Pumpkin seed oil is rich in phytosterols, which have been linked to potential benefits for heart health. Phytosterols may help reduce LDL cholesterol levels, contributing to a healthier lipid profile.
Antioxidant Properties: The oil contains antioxidants, including carotenoids and vitamin E, which help protect cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants are important for overall health and may contribute to disease prevention.
Prostate Health: Some studies suggest that pumpkin seed oil may have potential benefits for prostate health. It may help reduce symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) and improve urinary function.
Anti-Inflammatory Effects: The oil contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties, which may help reduce inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is linked to various health conditions, including heart disease and arthritis.
Hair and Skin Health: Pumpkin seed oil is rich in fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-9, which can contribute to healthy skin and hair. The oil's moisturizing properties may help improve skin texture and maintain hair health.
Mood and Sleep Regulation: Pumpkin seeds contain tryptophan, an amino acid that plays a role in the production of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that contributes to mood regulation and sleep. While more research is needed, the presence of tryptophan suggests a potential role in supporting mental well-being.
Dosage: Take one to two capsules daily with food or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Potential applications: Incontinence, overactive bladder syndrome, nocturia and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Known contraindications of Pumpkin Seed Oil: Not recommended for use during pregnancy and lactation. Not recommended for children under 12 years.
