This 100% pure Styrian Gold Pumpkin Seed Oil is pressed from pumpkins grown organically in the state of Styria in Austria.
Styrian pumpkin seeds differ from those grown in the USA or Canada not only in their colour (dark green, when they reach their optimal age) but also for having no shell. The oil produced from them is also dark green and has a unique, aromatic, nutty flavour which can make a tasty and nutritious variation in salad dressings or other toppings, or serve as an excellent finishing oil in its own right.
Styrian pumpkin seed oil contains many healthy nutrients -- Antioxidants; Vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, choline, C, E & K); Minerals (calcium, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, selenium, zinc); amino acids (such as tryptophan); omega 3 & 6 fatty acids; phytosterols -- which can confer therapeutic benefits. Current research indicates it may be able to help slow or even reverse an enlarged prostate (which can also reduce men's need to interrupt sleep to urinate), and regular users have reported it could help with a variety of cardiovascular, menstrual, skin, and infection and inflammation issues.
