Prostate Formula

Support for Men of all Ages

Product No. 6118 ~ 120 Tablets ~ US $22.00

How does Prostate Formula support prostate health?

This is by far one of the most complete and comprehensive products available anywhere for the life-long support of prostate health. As men mature it is important to focus on their prostate health. Paying extra attention to their diet is one very important step for men to take. They should especially avoid extra saturated fats and eat a plentiful supply of colorful fruits and vegetables. A healthy prostate can also be supported by adding the high-quality nutritional support contained in Prostate Formula. The high-quality extracts from Saw Palmetto berries and Pygeum are included for their legendary activity in sustaining  healthy prostate and sexual function. The lipid fraction of pumpkin seeds is a rich source of beta-sitosterol, which in its purified form also supports prostate health. This same formula provides outstanding nutritional value for health of the female cervix, and may help maintain vigorous sexual energy for both men and women.

Supports Prostate Function

Healthy prostate function is essential to a man’s optimal urinary health and sexual vitality. For this reason many men, as they mature, become more concerned with sustaining and promoting their prostate health.

The prostate is a small gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra, which is responsible for ensuring healthy urinary flow. There are many nutrients that have been found useful in supporting healthy prostate function, and Prostate Formula provides all of them in a convenient dietary supplement of minerals, amino acids, carotenoids, fatty acids, plant sterols, plant extracts, and vitamins.

Protects Urethra Lining

The major known function of the prostate gland is to manufacture and secrete seminal fluid, which carries, nourishes, and protects the spermatozoa necessary for human reproduction.

In addition, it helps maintain moisture that protects the lining of the urethra, the passage through which urine and seminal fluids flow out of the body. Several studies have provided insight into seminal fluid. One study revealed that it is rich in the mineral zinc, and the amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid. Another study indicated that maintaining proper levels of zinc in the seminal fluid contributes to maintaining a healthy prostate. A third study revealed that 66% of the participating men showed signs of improved prostate health after 3 months of dietary supplementation with the amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid.

Saw Palmetto and Pygeum

The fat-soluble extract of the saw palmetto berry is the most well studied, well known, and widely used natural product for supporting prostate health.

A 3-year study in Germany showed signs that saw palmetto extract significantly promoted prostate health in 73% of the participants.

Pygeum, an extract from the bark of an African tree, has been studied in controlled trials over the past 25 years and has shown significant ability to promote prostate health. This tree (Pygeum africanum) is currently threatened in the wild because of over-harvesting, therefore the source used for Prostate Formula is produced exclusively by sustainable, ecologically responsible methods in Africa.

Maintains Urinary Tract Health

Pumpkin seed oil is a rich source of zinc, fatty acids, and plant sterols, and has a long history of traditional use to maintain urinary tract and prostate health. Saw palmetto, pygeum bark, and pumpkin seed are also particularly rich sources of beta-sitosterol, which is found in almost all plants. Several double-blind placebo controlled studies have documented the ability of beta-sitosterol in its purified form to support prostate health. Therefore, beta-sitosterol is included in this comprehensive formula as a separate constituent, as well as pumpkin seed extract.

Affects Natural Steroid Compounds

Double-blind studies of extracts from the nettle plant root have confirmed its ability to support prostate health. The roots of the nettle plant (Urtica dioica) affect natural sex steroid compounds, and proteins that carry them in the body. Prostate Formula utilizes a 10:1 extract of nettle root (this means that for every 10 grams of root, 1 gram of extract is produced).

Promotes Healthy Circulation

Ginkgo biloba extract is included for its ability to help sustain and promote healthy circulation, which is particularly important to maintaining a healthy prostate.

Enhances Healthy Sexual Function

A high quality extract of the bark of a South American rainforest tree, known as Catuaba, is included for its legendary activity in sustaining a healthy nervous system and enhancing healthy sexual function, in both men and women.

Protects Against Free Radical Attack

Carotenoid complex and lycopene (extracted from tomatoes), vitamin E, vitamin D, pyridoxal-5-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B-6) and selenium round out this formula, which is designed to support and maintain life-long prostate health and vigorous sexual energy. Lycopene is by far the most abundant carotenoid present in the prostate gland, and appears to provide important protection against free radical attack in the prostate.

Higher levels of these nutrients in the diet and in the body have been linked to promoting and sustaining prostate health, particularly as men mature.

These same nutrients have also been linked to the support of health in the female cervix, which is the analogous organ to the prostate in women. Indeed, despite its name, Prostate Formula is not necessarily for men only!

If you are a mature male, adding the nutritional support contained in Prostate Formula to your diet will help maintain and promote a healthy prostate throughout your lifetime. Women may also find it useful in maintaining cervical health and sexual energy.

This is by far one of the most complete and comprehensive high quality dietary supplements for the lifelong support of male prostate, female cervix, and sexual health for both men and women, available on the market.◊
