Pumpkin Seed Oil is King of omega-6 oils
Omega Nutrition’s unroasted Pumpkin seed oil is a great tasting nutritional powerhouse. It is an excellent source of unrefined omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFA’s), plant phytosterols*, vitamin E, carotenoids and fat-soluble chlorophyll. It is also a convenient way to get daily requirements of omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFA’s) which are necessary for every cell in our body.
Omega 6 EFA’s should be consumed in their unrefined, cold pressed form. Unrefined, quality manufactured omega 6 oils are anti-inflammatory.

Bladder & Urinary Tract Health
In general, pumpkin seed oil seems to have a positive effect on the urinary tract. This tract is made up of the kidneys, the bladder, and the urethra, which connects the bladder to the urinary opening.
Researchers in a small study gave participants between 500 and 1,000 milligrams of pumpkin seed oil. The participants saw a drastic improvement in their overactive bladder symptoms, including wetting themselves at night. Learn More About This Study.
Can help reduce symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) and urinary frequency.
Effects on Prostate Health
Pumpkin seed oil, along with palmetto oil, has shown promising results as an alternative therapy for benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). BPH is a common condition where the prostate becomes enlarged. This can be extremely painful and block the flow of urine.
A study of Korean men with BPH found that pumpkin seed oil may act as an effective alternative medicine with no adverse reactions. Participants in the study saw an improvement in symptoms, including better urinary flow. Researchers found that optimal results occurred when pumpkin seed oil was paired with palmetto oil.
