A Natural Supplement for Prostate Health.
Prostatrol Forte, our natural supplement for prostate health utilizes saw palmetto extracts, nettles root extract and pygeum bark extracts for optimal prostate health and support. The extracts of nettles root, pygeum bark and saw palmetto affect prostate growth in different ways, and their combination in a dynamic and convenient supplement formula creates a synergistic effect over single ingredient formulas.
•Saw Palmetto for Prostate Health.
Saw Palmetto has been used extensively and for many years as the supplement of choice for poor prostate health in Europe and has been receiving more and more attention in the United States. Saw Palmetto, by competing with both the enzyme and receptor that stimulates growth factor secretion, inhibits prostatic hyperplasia. Studies have shown Saw Palmetto to increase urinary tract function, reduce symptom scores, nocturia, and improving peak urine flow rate. Saw Palmetto was also shown to have fewer side effects than standard therapy and comparative prescription drugs while providing the same benefit to the body.
• Stinging Nettles Root Extract for Prostate Health.
Extracts of Stinging Nettles Root have been used both individually as well as in combination with other botanicals to assist with poor prostate health. Nettles Root Rxtracts are approved by the German government as an official treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) also known as nodular hyperplasia. Two activities have been identified in Nettle Root Extracts that may be responsible for their positive effects on prostate health. The first is the inhibition of prostate Na+/K+ ATPase enzymes. By inhibiting this crucial enzyme, prostate cells are prevented from proliferating; and inhibiting the Na+/K+ ATPase enzymes inhibits hyperplasia. The second activity of Stinging Nettles Leaf is an interference of the human sex-hormone binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG is responsible for the estradiol-induced androgen sensitive prostatic growth. Stinging Nettles Leaf Extracts may also decrease the negative effects of androgens on the prostate while inhibiting prostate cell growth.
•Pygeum Extract for Prostate Health.
Pygeum africanum bark extract helps maintain normal effects of growth factors on prostate cells thereby maximizing normal function in the prostate. The extract of Pygeum bark has been used for more than 20 years in France for men suffering from poor prostate health. Pygeum has shown to inhibit growth factors responsible for prostatic overgrowth, while reducing prostatic inflammation by inhibiting lipoxygenase enzyme activity. pygeum extracts antagonize the production of metabolites in the 5-Lipoxegenase pathway (in the aracadonic acid inflammation pathway). This activity will further reduce the inflammatory process in the prostate. One study on men with BPH showed prostate symptom scores reduced by 40 percent, quality of life scores improved 31 percent and nocturnal urination frequency reduced by 32 percent, all with 50 mg of Pygeum, twice daily for 2 months.
