    A culinary specialty of Styria, Austria, pumpkin seed oil is made of the roasted skinless seeds of a special type of pumpkin, the “Styrian Oil Pumpkin”. The seeds of this pumpkin are a power food, rich in many nutrients including: vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, E and K, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, other minerals, and the precious omegas: Omega 3 and Omega 6, also known as essential fatty acids. Pumpkin seed oil is one of the top three nutritional oils (hemp seed oil, flax seed oil and pumpkin seed oil) that provide the highest essential fatty acids required for healthy mind/body functioning. Pumpkin seed oil offers a practical and tasty way of supplying one's diet with the good fats for smooth skin, increased energy, maintenance and improvement of sexual health and optimum brain function. The oil also contains over 60% unsaturated fatty acid and is rich in vegetable proteins, carbohydrates, phytosterols and cucurbitin (named for the plant). All benefits listed for consumption are effective in topical application to a lesser extent.
