Oil and health
Pumpkin seed oil helps fight heart disease, vascular disease and cancer.
Cardiovascular disease and cancer are two of the most critical health problems of modern civilization. Early stage illnesses can be reduced or even prevented through a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet. Nutritionists recommend reducing the total amount of fats we consume – especially animal fats, which should be replaced with vegetable oil. Due to its high content of linoleic and linolenic acid, pumpkin seed oil is one of the most beneficial and nutritious oils. It is also rich in vitamin E, which helps prevent heart disease, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and premature aging.
