It treats benign prostatic hyperplasia symptoms, promotes proper bladder function and helps reduce frequent urination. It is a rich source of linoleic (ω-6), oleic (ω-9), palmitic and stearic acid. Its high content of Vitamin E and carotenoids gives it its strong antioxidant action. It increases hair density and is ideal to strengthen and moisturize weak hair. It protects the skin from ageing and neutralizes free radicals, while moisturizing the skin. Pumpkin oil is ideal for acneic skin as it helps reduce inflammation.
