A Healthy Prostate

Far eastern men have healthier prostates than men in America.  Dietary intake may be a crucial factor.   A healthful diet consisting of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and soy products along with vitamin and herbal support can have a beneficial effect on the prostate gland.   The following nutrients are designed to support the healthy functioning of the prostate gland.*

Prostate Cleansing Nutrients

Astaxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family and is a powerful newly discovered antioxidant that helps protect against more types of free radicals than any other antioxidant.* The natural form of Astaxanthin is derived from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis and is at least 10 times more effective as an antioxidant than beta-carotene. It is highly bioavailable because it binds to a lipid (fat) molecule and enters the bloodstream more readily than other antioxidants. Astaxanthin is a fat soluble nutrient that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, which enhances its benefits. It is 100-500 times more effective than vitamin E in inhibiting lipid peroxidation, which is the destruction of fatty acids and proteins in cell membranes that can cause oxidative damage. Astaxanthin exhibits strong anti-inflammatory properties at the cellular level by inhibiting oxidants that cause inflam-mation to the cells.* Results from clinical studies testing the safety of Astaxanthin have shown no known toxicity. astaZANTHINT brand Astaxanthin is a highly concentrated natural extract from H.pluvialis micro algae.

Saw Palmetto Extract (berry) (Serenoa repens) is a small palm tree, with berries and leaves, indigenous to North America. Saw Palmetto berries have been written about as a familiar remedy for prostate health in herbal medical literature since the 1800's. By the 1970's, clinical studies in Europe were proving what herbalists had known for years. Saw Palmetto can be used for prostate support.* A German study, over a three year period, showed significant improvement in 82% of the 315 patients with prostate symptoms. Some of the fat soluble active compounds in Saw Palmetto berries that have a beneficial affect on the prostate are free fatty acids, phytosterols and monoglycerides. A standardized extract that contains 45% fatty acids and sterols is the most beneficial form.

Pygeum Extract (bark) (Prunus africanus) is an evergreen tree found in Africa. Extracts from the bark contain several chemical compounds including phytosterols which have anti- inflammatory activity that promotes healthy bladder and prostate function.* Pygeum Extracts have been used in France for the last 25 years to support prostate health.* The synergistic combination of both Saw Palmetto and pygeum may have a more beneficial effect on prostate health.

Hawthorne Extract (Crataegus oxycantha) is recognized for its high concentration of flavonoid compounds, known as proanthocyanidins, that are primarily responsible for its free radical scavenging activity. Hawthorn extract may be helpful in promoting healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.* The flavonoid compounds have been shown to strengthen coronary vessels which may enhance the smooth flow of blood into the arteries as well.*

Nettle Root Extract (16:1) (Urticae diocia radix) is supportive in maintaining healthy bladder function.* It is a nourishing herb rich in minerals. Nettles has a mild water releasing action and aids the kidneys with elimination of uric acid.*

Pumpkin Seed Oil Extract (Cucurbita pepo) contains a high amount of zinc as well as essential fatty acids and sterols that are beneficial for healthy bladder and prostate function.* Vitamin B6 has a mild water regulating action that supports healthy bladder function and is a necessary nutrient for metabolizing fatty acids. *

Amino acids for the formation of hormones and enzymes

L-Alanine is a nonessential amino acid used by the body to build proteins.

Alanine is present in prostate fluid and recent studies have shown that it plays a role in supporting prostate health.* It also provides nutritional support and tonifies the male reproductive system.*

Lycopene is a carotenoid found in tomatoes. Carotenoids are pigments synthesized by plants that give them their orange, yellow and red colors.

Antioxidant Minerals and Vitamins

Antioxidants assist the body's immune system to quench free radicals before they can damage healthy cells.* Recent research has revealed carotenoid compounds, found in various vegetables and fruits, as having antioxidant activity that can destroy free-radical causing agents. Free radicals are unstable molecules that circulate in the body and can be caused by exposure to food additives and chemical preservatives, rancid oils, processed foods, radiation, UV sunlight and environmental pollution. They are responsible for many degenerative health conditions. Lycopene has received a lot of publicity in recent years.

Zinc is a trace mineral that is an essential nutrient for hormonal metabolism and prostate health.* The largest concentration of zinc is found in the prostate gland. Zinc deficiencies may be linked to prostate conditions.

Calcium is an important mineral for enhancing healthy prostate function.* Essential fatty acids work with vitamin D in the body to make calcium available to the tissues.

Vitamin C plays a critical role in the body's immune system and healing process.* It increases the production of white blood cells that protect the body from foreign substances by producing antibodies and T-cells. Vitamin C helps fight free radical damage *which often contributes to degenerative conditions. Ester C is absorbed faster into the blood stream and excreted more slowly than regular vitamin C supplements. Vitamin E is an immune-enhancing nutrient with strong antioxidant activity.*
