It can make a healthy salad dressing, adding a nice nutty flavour, yet it is no good for cooking as the heat destroys the essential fatty acids.
It makes a good massage oil, for helping to relieve headaches and muscle aches and pains.
When buying pumpkin seed oil, check to make sure it does not contain too much sunflower oil. A lot of manufacturers will add more sunflower oil to cut costs. And always buy cold pressed.
Like flaxseed oil, keep your pumpkin seed oil in the fridge.
To date, there are no known pumpkin seed oil side effects, apart from maybe a slight stomach upset. It has also been found not to interfere with any medication. So enjoy the pumpkin seed oil benefits.
