Pumpkin seed Oil ( Cucurbita pepo )
The oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids which lower the levels of cholesterol in blood and thus reduce the danger of a heart attack and cardiovascular diseases; it slows down hardening of the skin and has curative effects in the case of skin inflammation. Only the finest Styrian pumpkin seeds are harvested, sorted by size and color, slowly roasted at a low temperature and pressed into a PURE oil following strict European standards. Pumpkin oil contains zinc which helps against prostatic problems and painful urination, as well as lots of antioxidants (alpha, gamma tocopherol) which catch free radicals in the circulatory system. All the substances important for health (trace elements, vitamins and mineral) are contained in pumpkin seeds in their natural form (potassium, phosphor, magnesium, calcium, iron, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc), together with other important vitamins (E, B1, B2, B6, C, A, D).
