Cold Pressed Pumpkin Seed Oil 

The orange-red oil is sold as cooking oil and as a health supplement. Research suggests pumpkin seed oil can prevent and reverse hair loss, ease menopause symptoms, improve prostate and heart health, and treat overactive bladder.

Health Benefits

Study-proven uses for pumpkin seed oil include lowering cholesterol, easing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men, reducing hot flashes and hormone-related headaches in women, and reversing hair loss.

Lowers Cholesterol

Pumpkin seed oil contains phytosterols, which are structurally similar to the body’s cholesterol. Phytosterols compete with cholesterol for absorption in the digestive system, which can block cholesterol absorption and lower cholesterol levels, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Pumpkin Seed Oil for Hair Loss

A study published in Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that when men took 400 milligrams of pumpkin seed oil per day (in capsule form) for 24 weeks, they saw an increase in hair growth.

Those who took pumpkin seed oil saw a 40 percent increase in hair count, whereas men who took a placebo saw a 10 percent increase in hair count.

While this study was funded by a private company, the study authors reported no conflict of interest.

Relief of Menopausal Symptoms  

A pilot study conducted on 35 menopausal women found that those who took pumpkin seed oil (rather than wheat germ oil) experienced increases in HDL cholesterol, a decrease in diastolic blood pressure, and fewer menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, headaches, and joint pain.

Study authors suggested that more research is needed to confirm their results.

Urinary Tract Health 

Research has linked pumpkin seed oil to improved prostate health and relief from overactive bladder.
A study published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine found that when study participants consumed pumpkin seed oil as an extract for 12 weeks, they found relief from overactive bladder symptoms.
A study that compared pumpkin seed oil to saw palmetto oil in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) showed both oils to be effective individually for improving maximal urinary flow rate. Taken in conjunction, pumpkin seed and saw palmetto oils reduced serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.

Possible Treatment for Metabolic Disease

A study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture examined the use of pumpkin seed oil on metabolic disease in rats. Scientists found that pumpkin seed oil may be helpful in the prevention or treatment of metabolic disorder in rats who were fed a high-fat diet. However, rodent studies don’t provide strong evidence that humans will experience the same benefit. These studies simply offer clues to researchers so that further studies can be developed.
