How Nutra Origin Omega-3 Pumpkin Seed Oil works:
Developed based on a thorough review of the scientific evidence, NutraOrigin's Pumpkin Seed Oilincludes 1,000 mg of pure, cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil, with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. The description below will give you a better understanding of how Pumpkin Seed Oil supports prostate, urinary, and bladder health.
Prostate and Urinary Health
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that encircles the urethra, the tube through which urine leaves the body. As men age, the prostate can squeeze down on the urethra, making it difficult or uncomfortable to urinate.
Pumpkin seed oil has been approved for supporting the health of the prostate and bladder by the German Commission E, a government regulatory agency that evaluates the safety and efficacy of herbs. It is one of only a handful of botanical extracts marketed for prostate support that is backed by solid clinical research. In fact, two double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical studies - the gold standard of modern scientific research - have found that pumpkin seed oil positively impacts various measures of prostate and urinary health.
The first study, published in 2000, compared the 12-month efficacy of pumpkin seed oil versus placebo in 542 men. The researchers found that, compared to placebo, pumpkin seed oil initiated significant improvements in a key measure of prostate health in 64.8% of participants. Men taking pumpkin seed oil also reported urinating less often during the day than the controls.
The latest study, published in September of 2010, evaluated the effect of dietary supplementation in Korean men with an average age of 53. Sixty-two men were divided into four groups. Group 1 took placebos, Group 2 took pumpkin seed oil, Group 3 took saw palmetto, and Group 4 took a combination of saw palmetto and pumpkin seed oil. All three of the supplementation groups saw equally positive results. After three months, the men taking pumpkin seed oil alone experienced an improvement in their overall prostate health, as well as their quality of life, compared to those taking placebo pills. After six months, their urinary flow rate improved too.
Additionally, two human studies testing the effects of pumpkin seed plus saw palmetto found the combination improved urinary flow, urination time, frequency of urination, and incomplete emptying.
So how does pumpkin seed oil work? In laboratory research using human prostate cells, pumpkin seed oil inhibited the conversion of the testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, a hormone that influences prostate size. This finding was further reinforced by a small human study, which found that prostate tissue of men taking pumpkin seed oil contained significantly less dihydrotestosterone than that of men taking nothing.
While the research supporting pumpkin seed oil and bladder health is less extensive, one study in Thailand showed that the oil helped maintain normal levels of urinary oxalate excretion, while increasing potassium values. Both of these actions promote bladder health. Additionally, animal research has revealed that pumpkin seed oil reduces bladder and urethral pressure, and increases bladder compliance - the amount of urine the bladder can comfortably hold.

Many chronic health conditions are preventable. They result from years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, or prolonged exposure to stress. Some have become so common that they do not even remember what good health feels like. Now leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle - by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life - many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. Why can't theyr address all health problems and bodily challenges medically? The question has become a central topic in many leading publications. But the answer is fairly obvious: Western medicine is organized around acute illness, not long-term health.
"The US health care system is still largely designed to treat patients with acute medical problems.... 'At no point in medical school are physicians exposed to patients with chronic illness, except for acute episodes leading to hospitalization,' says Michael Lockshin, MD, a Harvard Medical School graduate and head of the women and rheumatic disease center at New York City Hospital for Special Surgery. "The result: Many patients shuffle from doctor to doctor in search of relief from many complications of their chronic illnesses. On average, people with one chronic condition see three different physicians and fill seven prescriptions a year, according to Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
People with five or more chronic conditions make 12 physician visits and fill 50 prescriptions a year.... "Chronic diseases are now the leading cause of disability and death in the United States, with seven in 10 deaths each year attributed to such illnesses as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and stroke. About 133 million Americans - nearly one in two adults - live with at least one chronic disease, and more than one in 10 have three or more.... "'The present medical model has ignored many of the issues - pain, fatigue, anger - that interfere with people's lives,' says Nancy Whitelaw, Ph.D, NCOA senior vice president. 'Until their care system focuses on improved health for people with chronic conditions, they will never get a handle on skyrocketing costs.
