Perfect Press® Styrian Pumpkin Oil is pressed from the seeds of Styrian pumpkins, which are grown exclusively for their seeds because they are the most nutritious pumpkin seeds available.

Styrian pumpkin oil contains many vitamins — including A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and especially E.

It's also a great natural source of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) and oleic acid which are great for fat-burning and appetite-curbing.

Benefits

  1. Bladder benefits. Incontinence and bladder irritation are a concern for many people, especially women post-childbirth and post-menopause. Pumpkin oil strengthens the muscles that support the bladder (which can help to prevent prolapse and stress incontinence) and also soothe bladder irritation, reducing urge incontinence.
  2. Prostate performance. There is a strong body of evidence that shows that pumpkin seed oil can help prevent prostate enlargement — a major health issue for men over 60. Not only that, but it has even been found to reverse enlargement in men who are already experiencing the discomfort of an enlarged prostate.
  3. Hold onto your hair. Male pattern baldness (as well as hair loss in women) is sometimes associated with overly high levels of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). One of the phytochemicals in pumpkin oil, beta-sitosterol, has been found to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Pumpkin oil also contains delta-7-sterol, which blocks DHT via a different mechanism. The effects of these naturally occurring chemicals have led to speculation and anecdotal evidence for pumpkin oil as a treatment for hair loss.
  4. Heal your digestive tract. The high fatty acid content of pumpkin oil can balance out excess inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, helping to soothe uncomfortable and embarrassing symptoms associated with an unhealthy digestive tract. This can have a secondary impact, in that you will absorb more nutrition from your food if your GI tract is functioning properly.
  5. Make your heart happy. Want to reduce your risk of heart disease? Pumpkin seed oil can help you accomplish that goal. Pumpkin seed oil has high levels of phytosterols which are believed to help reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad type of cholesterol) by lowering its absorption when taken with a meal containing cholesterol.
  6. Support your liver. Since pumpkin seed oil is a great source of healthy fats and antioxidants, consuming it can help support liver health. On top of that, using it in place of certain anti-inflammatory drugs can protect your liver from unnecessary damage.
  7. Protect your peepers. Perfectly Pressed pumpkin seed oil contains high levels of zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that has been shown to protect your eyes from UV and blue light damage.
  8. Nourish your brain. Pumpkin seed oil is high in essential fats, which are the primary fuel for your brain.
  9. Ease the symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes and insomnia may be a thing of the past. Research now shows that postmenopausal women could get some relief with the use of pumpkin seed oil. The natural phytoestrogens in pumpkin seed oil can help to lower your blood pressure and provide relief from symptoms like hot flashes, headaches and joint pain.

Additional Information

Styrian pumpkin oil contains many vitamins — including A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and especially E.

Studies have found that Styrian Pumpkin seed oil contains more antioxidants than any other unrefined oil. This oil also contains both omega–3 and omega–6 essential fatty acids, as well as highly beneficial phytonutrients.

Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil is one of the five nutritious oils that are included in the powerful mix Perfect Press® Five Seed Blend.

While Five Seed is a great way to get the benefits of many seeds in one bottle, pumpkin oil is so nutritious and rich that it a higher concentration of the above benefits might be preferable for some. The choice is yours..
