Hair growth is a big benefit of Pumpkin Seed Oil (Cho, et al., 2014). The same mechanism that can help promote hair growth may also help inhibit prostate growth (Ejike & Ezeanyika, 2011). Both are very important to men’s health. These beneficial oils plus more are now available in a single organic, plant-based, cold-pressed source called Pure Form Omega® Natural.
Just because Pumpkin Seed Oil has benefits for men, don’t think it doesn’t have many benefits for women! Pumpkin Seed Oil and Evening Primrose Oil are well known for helping to prevent hot flashes in women going through menopause (Farzaneh, Fatehi, Sohrabi, & Alizadeh, 2013). These oils also assist with improving the lipid profile associated with menopause (by helping cholesterol). The hair growth benefits may also happen in women—even your hairdresser will notice!
