Prostate Cleanse™ is a synergistic blend of herbs and vitamins for healthy prostate function
Prostate Cleanse™ is a unique formulation designed to support the healthy functioning of the prostate gland.
Prostate health is a growing concern with adult men. 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.
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.*
L-Alanine is a nonessential amino acid used by the body to build proteins.
Amino acids are necessary for the formation of hormones and enzymes.
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.
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 alot 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.*
