What are the properties of Prostate Health?
The Prostate Health formula is integrated by the following ingredients:
- Provides 320mg of Saw Palmetto Extract (Serenoa repens) (Min. 85% Fatty Acids) per dose. This ingredient is included in the formula from the fruit extract of a little palm tree Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens). In the following review, they summarize several articles on 'Serenoa repens extract in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia'. 'The articles were analysed with regard to their relevance, scientific value and the size of the evaluated series. Multiple mechanisms of action have been attributed to this extract, including antiandrogenic action, an anti-inflammatory/anti-oedematous effect, prolactin signal modulation, and an antiproliferative effect exerted through the inhibition of growth factors. Regarding efficacy, European Association of Urology guidelines state that Serenoa repens extracts significantly reduce nocturia in comparison with placebo. Most of the published trials regarding Serenoa repens phytotherapy demonstrate a significant improvement of urinary status and a favourable safety profile. Also, some authors have credited it with giving a significant improvement in erectile function and decreasing complications following transurethral resection of the prostate, especially bleeding. The results of phytotherapy with Serenoa repens extracts are very promising'. (1)
- 1g of Pumpkin seed oil per dose. To obtain the oil, the seeds are cold-pressed, conserving this way their nutritional properties. The following study shows that 'We conclude pumpkin seed oil can inhibit testosterone-induced hyperplasia of the prostate and therefore may be beneficial in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia'.
