The Ancient Mexican Prostate Pill

Greetings, men! Paul here, and I’ve got some great news!

I’ve found an all-natural, little green pill that’s great for prostate health.

In fact, the ancient Mexicans used it way back in 5500 B.C. and men all over the world still use it today — pumpkin seed!

Modern research has revealed that components in pumpkin seeds (the oil in particular) interrupt the onset of cell multiplication in the prostate.

This cell multiplication is what leads to an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hypertrophy – BPH).

How does it work? Scientists aren’t exactly sure.

Can you get the same benefits from pumpkin oil if you just eat the seeds?

This is up for debate as well. But eating a handful of raw pumpkin seeds three times a week is commonly recommended.

Prostate health aside, eating raw pumpkin seeds has a ton of other benefits (as ancient North Americans have already discovered).

Being a rich source of zinc, pumpkin seeds are important for older men because it helps with bone density.

Dietary zinc has been proven to help with low bone density, which most people associate with post-menopausal women, but men are at risk, too.

In fact, statistics show that 1 in 8 men over 50 years old will have an osteoporotic bone fracture due to low bone density.

Pumpkin seeds also have anti-inflammatory compounds that help fight arthritis; they’re a very good source of magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus; a good source of iron, copper and protein; and can even help lower cholesterol.

With all this, that ancient prostate pill could be considered your new multivitamin! 😀

  1. Saw palmetto. Great for lots of things that used to work better than they do after you’re 40!

  2. Is pumpkin seeds good for pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women too?

  3. Apparently pumpkin seed extract is good for post-menopausal women who experience incontinence when sneezing or exercising (ie overactive bladder). The water-soluble extract helps to inhibit an enzyme, which makes more testosterone available to the body, thereby strengthening the pelvic muscles to stop incontinence. Life Extension did a report on it in 2008. Google “pumpkin seed Life extension November 2008” and you’ll find it. 🙂 

  4. Pumpkin seeds make great nut milk.  They don’t even need to be strained.  Use for smoothies, avocado puddings etc.  They also make a great pate base.

  5. My husband and I use these in our raw oats in the AM along with fresh fruit.
