Reducing inflammation:  Pumpkin seed oil can be an important part of an anti-inflammatory diet as replacing foods high in saturated fats with foods that contain healthy unsaturated fats, this naturally has a positive impact on the amount of inflammation in the body which has been found to decrease the risk of numerous chronic illnesses and diseases, as well as to fight pain from many of those conditions, like arthritis.

Reducing inflammation has many other positive effects too – a 2015 studyout of the Netherlands showed that by replacing pumpkin seed oil in the diet of those who were suffering from atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in artery walls) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the effects of these conditions on the participants were notably reduced.

Studies have shown that these compounds can help increase HDL, or “good” cholesterol, as well as lower blood pressure, lessen hot flashes, headaches, and joint pain. Thanks to its phytoestrogens, the oil may not only help to reducing breast cancer riskin postmenopausal women, but it may be able to treat it too.

 A better night’s sleep and less anxiety:  The oil is an excellent source of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that the body converts to serotonin, which is then turned into melatonin, AKA the “sleep hormone,” it can also help you to get a better night’s rest.

Improved heart health: Pumpkin seed oil is rich in healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants which all offer benefits for heart health. As mentioned, its anti-inflammatory properties and phytoestrogens are both known for supporting the heart, including increasing “good,” HDL cholesterol.
