Cold Pressed Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil for scalp health

PUMPKIN SEED (Cucurbita pepo)

Pumpkin seed oil contains many health nutrients, and two in particular that are believed to provide protection against DHT damage by inhibiting the enzyme 5-ar.

  1. Beta-sitosterol: This phytosterol (organic molecule found in plants) has been shown to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT by inhibiting the enzyme 5-ar.
  2. Delta-7-sterine: This compound specifically competes with the stronger DHT at the receptor sites of the follicles. In other words, it helps prevent DHT from binding to the hair follicles where it would begin to weaken and thin the hair.
Unrefined Pumpkin Seed oil has good levels of both beta-sitosterol and delta-7-sterine to naturally inhibit the function of 5-ar from converting testosterone into DHT and taking hold of the roots. It does this without harmful drug-related side effects of medications and while adding beneficial nutrients, fatty acids and antioxidants to the scalp.
