Natures Bio-Active Ingredients Providing Optimal Prostate Support
Preliminary research indicates a number of ingredients may contribute to recovery from and prevention of prostate cancer, although significant clinical data is still needed to establish certainty. These ingredients help by supporting general prostate health and controlling some of the factors suggested as causing the disease.
Is a popular herbal supplements that contains Beta-Sisterol, a plant sterol. Supplementation with Saw Palmetto has been shown in a number of studies to help improve urinary symptoms in men with prostate enlargement..

Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)
Is a strong inhibitor of 5-alpha reductase acyivity. An enzyme that irreversibly converts testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), This conversion may not only result in prostate enlargement but can cause other problems related to low testosterone such as fatigue, reduced virility and male pattern baldness.
Possess powerful antioxidant activity which fight oxidative stress helping prevent disease and reduce premature aging. In addition the unique composition of anthocyanins, rarely found elsewhere in nature, also promotes peripheral blood circulation that can help alleviate urinary tract infections.
Plays an important role in maintaining prostate health. In a diseased prostate, zinc levels fall to one tenth of the levels found in normal prostates. Zinc supplementation has a clearly documented usefulness in shrinking an enlarged prostate.
Is a strong antioxidant that combats toxic free radicals protecting critical cells and bio molecules including lipids, DNA and proteins. When absorbed from the stomach, lycopene is transported in the blood and accumulates in the liver, adrenal glands, testes and prostate gland – Meaning its antioxidant power will be most active in these areas helping to prevent disease (like prostate disease).
