Male-pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men. It occurs due to an increase in androgen hormone known as dihydroxy testosterone (DHT). Pumpkin Seed Oil helps balance this hormone, therefore preventing hair loss and encouraging hair growth. Both internal use and topical application of Pumpkin Seed Oil have shown results in promoting hair growth. A study showed that men who took 400 mg (~0.4ml) of Pumpkin Seed Oil every day for 24 weeks enjoyed an increase of hair count by an average of 40%, without any adverse effects.

Fondly called ‘Green Gold’, the Pumpkin Seed Oil has a long and rich history. It is harvested from the seeds of the common pumpkin or Cucurbita pepo. First originated in Mexico, Pumpkin and has been around since 9,200 BC and is one of the world’s oldest cultivated plants. Pumpkin was likely introduced to Europe in the 15th century, soon after when America was discovered. By the mid-18th century, various benefits of pumpkin seeds were known worldwide, and its oil was extracted from the tough shelled seeds of the Pumpkin. In fact, the then Austrian Empress, Maria Theresia, proclaimed that Pumpkin Seed Oil should not only be a food source but should also find a place in chemist stores to use in ointments and plasters. Earlier, pumpkin seeds used to have thick shells that were hard to consume; overtime, varieties of pumpkins emerged with shell-less seeds, which simplified the oil extraction process and increased the yield. Today Austria is one of the leading manufacturers of Pumpkin Seed Oil, and more than 2000 tons of oil is being pressed in the quaint town of Styria in Austria.
