Studies have proven that pumpkin seed oil is a strong drug indomethacin at easing chronic rheumatoid arthritis. It’s most likely that this is because of the essential fatty acid profile, the rich antioxidant content and the synergistic effects of other minor components. Furthermore, pumpkin seeds have also been shown to have high levels of vitamin E, including all forms of the tocopherol family, for instance, alpha, beta, delta and gamma protocols, along with the tocotrienols.
For High Cholesterol:
Pumpkin seed oil (PSO) has been concurrently used with cholesterol lowering drugs and would appear to potentiate the overall lipid lowering effects. The positive effects on lowering LDL levels and increasing HDL levels are most likely due to the antioxidant and essential fatty acid content of PSO.
Side effects of the cholesterol drug were also lowered when PSO was administered. The same positive results have been found in concomitant use of PSO with anti-hypertensive medication. They hypotensive action is due to the EFAs and antioxidant capability of PSO.
