Pumpkin Seed Oil and BP

I have been taking Pumpkin Seed Oil for 2 months now, to reduce my prostate problems, and I felt that my joints pain is less frequent and I can say on just 1 gram daily. Anyway, I have been noticing that my blood pressure readings are lower when I take rather large doses 2-3 grams daily.

I was searching online and found out that in a study the oil enhances the blood pressure lowering effect of calcium antagonist felodipine or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-inhibitor), captopril.

I thought you people might find that interesting , I will try to isolate and lowr my supplements intake and see if this oil really does what I think it does.
Good luck to you all,
