8 Benefits of Pumpkin Seed Oil

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. (8) If you’re seeking to live a disease-free life, introducing anti-inflammatory foods and supplements into your diet is one of the key actions you need to take.

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. (9) Additional research has found the nutritional value of pumpkin seeds to possibly prevent and treat breast cancer. (10). The future is promising for men as well as women — pumpkin seeds may also reduce or inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells. (11) Pumpkin seed oil, in particular, can reduce the effects of specific carcinogens, making it a useful natural cancer treatment for many different types of cancer. (12). For those currently being treated for cancer, pumpkin seed oil may also be an answer to common problems. Its antioxidant properties create a filter for radiation and protect against or prevent small intestinal damage from methotrexate, a treatment for several types of cancer and also rheumatoid arthritis. (13, 14, 15).

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! Long used as a folk medicine for prostate health, pumpkin seed oil reduces the size of an enlarged prostate, especially in the instance of benign prostatic hyperplasia (age-related prostate enlargement). (16, 17) That’s why I pumpkin seed oil use is one of three steps to improve prostate health!

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. (18, 19). 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. (20)

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. In a 2014 double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, pumpkin seed oil hair loss benefits were apparent, as men who took pumpkin seed oil over the course of 24 weeks showed an increase of hair count by an average of 40 percent! (21)

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. (22) It also reduces high blood pressure in postmenopausal women, according to research published in Climacteric: The Journal of the International Menopause Society. (23)

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. (24)

8. Soothes Overactive Bladder
A 2014 study published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine suggests pumpkin seed oil extracts (from both the Cucurbita pepo and Cucurbita maxima varieties) effectively treat urinary disorders, specifically overactive bladder. (25) This indicates consuming pumpkin seed oil is an important part of maintaining a healthy excretory system.

Pumpkin Seed Oil History
Pumpkin seeds have been popular for centuries, dating back as early as 1300 A.D., when Native Americans celebrated them for both dietary and medicinal benefits, beginning with the Aztec cultures and spreading to the rest of Native America. After being spread to Europe, these seeds became an integral part of the diet for many areas in Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean (notably, Greece). Now, pumpkin seeds have entered traditional food and medicine practices in India and other areas of Asia. Although the health benefits of pumpkin seed oil are quite impressive on their own, that’s not the only good thing about it. Interestingly, recent research has found pumpkin seed oil (and other vegetable oils) to be a potential source of biofuel. (26). Pumpkin seed oil is often praised as a “superhero ingredient” in skin care, too, due to the essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals contained within it. The use of pumpkin seed oil for skin and homeopathic beauty routines may serve to treat acne, fight free radical damage, moisturize and much more. (27)

Pumpkin Seed Oil Uses. Pumpkin seed oil, extracted from roasted pumpkin seeds, should not be “cooked,” as heat destroys many of its best health properties and produces a bitter taste. The most common intake of pumpkin seed oil for health is in capsule or liquid form, as a supplement to a health-conscious lifestyle. One delicious way to use pumpkin seed oil in food, prevalent in Eastern Europe, is as a salad dressing, either by itself or in combination with other healthy oils. (28). Storage is key to keeping pumpkin seed oil fresh. Warmth and light easily oxidize the polyunsaturated fats in pumpkin seed oil, causing it to go rancid. Therefore, it should be bottled, sealed and stored in a cool, dark place. It’s important to remember that the fresh, nutty taste of the oil will dissipate after it’s first opened, though it remains good for 12 months, sometimes longer. Because oxidation of the oil produces a pretty nasty smell, it’s also smart to wipe any stray drops from the outside of the bottle or cap before storing it away — after all, it’s not appetizing to smell rancid oil when you’re preparing for a delicious meal!
