Research has indicated a number of vitamins and natural nutrients that are beneficial to the prostate gland. Prostate symptoms are a frequent cause of discomfort for many males. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) (enlargment of the prostate gland) is a common problem, mainly affecting men of over 50 years old.
Nature’s Own Prostate Support Supplement comes in gluten-free capsules. Each capsule contains the following natural and active ingredients. All of these nutrients are presented in a wholefood mineral base made from hydroponically grown brassica juncea (a member of the same family as broccoli). This brassica base also contains additional nutrients and acts as a food base to aid absorption and metabolism of the prostate supplement nutrients.
Urtica Dioica (Stinging Nettle Root): Analysis of this common plant has revealed the presence of a surprising number of well-known compounds including Beta-Sitosterol, Quercetin and Rutin. The inhibitory and anti-proliferative activity of Urtica Dioica has been recorded in research for human prostate tissue. Each capsule comprises 100mg of Urtica Dioica (Stinging Nettle Root)
Beta-Sitosterol: Beta-Sitosterol is a naturally occurring plant sterol. A number of potential health benefits for plant sterols have been demonstrated and this includes prostate-specific research for Beta-Sitosterol. Each capsule comprises 100mg of Beta-Sitosterol.
Pumpkin Seed: Pumpkin Seed has historically featured in natural approaches for the prostate gland, with potential anti-androgen and anti-inflammatory properties suggested for the benefits of pumpkin seed to the prostate in a report published in Reviews in Urology. Each capsule comprises 125mg of Pumpkin Seed extract.
Lycopene: A beneficial role for Lycopene has been suggested in patients diagnosed with benign prostate hyperplasia. A pilot study for BPH showed those taking Lycopene showed no further enlargement of the prostate, whilst those in the placebo group demonstrated a continuing enlargement. Each capsule comprises 5mg of pure Lycopene. Read more about Lycopene.
Zinc: Zinc is an important mineral, with many Zinc-dependent enzymes present in the body. The functions of Zinc include tissue growth, cell replication, bone formation and cell mediated immunity. Researchers have suggested that Zinc may serve an important role in regulating both cell growth and apoptosis (a type of cell death). Each capsule comprises 5mg of wholefood Zinc.
