We recently talked about pumpkin seed milk. Did you watch it yet? Did you know the benefits of pumpkin seeds?
Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, which strengthens the immune system. The seeds also contain a substance called piperazine, responsible for eliminating intestinal worms. We can even find piperazine at drugstores.
And, if that wasn’t enough, these seeds are also used as an old but very efficient deworming technique.
Among all these benefits of pumpkin seeds, we can also mention:
They are rich in antioxidants that act against free radicals, preventing the premature aging of cells, wrinkles, and skin spots, making the skin hydrated and soft.
They help eliminate worms, strengthen the immune system, aid prostate health, and even make you happier!
But, if that wasn’t enough for you, these seeds also help with hair loss. Did you know that?
There are lots of old studies that show how pumpkin seed oil helps with hair growth.
Vitamin E and beta carotene, both found in pumpkin seed oil, increase hair resistance by hydrating them and preventing loss.
The oil is also a natural inhibitor of DHT, a hormone that debilitates hair follicles and is known for causing baldness. Isn’t it interesting?
But, how do we use pumpkin seed oil?
One of the easiest ways of enjoying the benefits of the pumpkin seed oil is through capsule supplements.
However, you must always talk to a trusted doctor before starting any supplements – and that includes the pumpkin seed oil capsules.
Generally speaking, although these capsules aren’t dangerous, your doctor is the only one who can say for sure if the pumpkin seed oil supplement is safe for you.
You can also use pumpkin seed oil on your hair. But be careful since excessive use can make your hair greasy. The secret is to use the oil once a month or once a week, at most.
Using it is super simple: wash your hair with shampoo as usual. Warm up the pumpkin seed oil in a double-boiler, being careful to not let it heat too much. Wait until warm and apply the oil on your scalp, massaging gently.
After all your scalp is covered, wrap your head in a warm towel and leave it for at least 20 minutes. Then, wash as usual with shampoo and conditioner.
