Saw Palmetto extract is one of the world's leading herbal products for prostate support. Widely-cited clinical studies conducted in the past two decades suggest that saw palmetto extract is beneficial for prostate health and urinary function. The changes in prostate health that accompany middle age are related to the hormone DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, a metabolite of testosterone. DHT levels rise, and DHT binds to prostate cells, accelerating growth of prostate tissue.
Saw palmetto extract acts in part through its inhibition of 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme that controls conversion of testosterone to DHT.
Experimental evidence suggests saw palmetto extract blocks the binding of DHT to prostate cells. The fatty acids and sterols in saw palmetto are believed to be responsible for these actions. These include oleic acid, lauric acid, campesterol, stigmasterol, beta-sitosterol and others. The saw palmetto in Comprehensive Prostate Formula is standardized to contain 290mg fatty acids and sterols, matching the amount of extract used in some successful clinical studies.
African Pygeum Bark contains natural sterols and fatty acids that inhibit growth factors in prostate cells.
Nettle enhances urinary flow and acts as an astringent. This action is possibly due to its polysaccharide and lignan content.
The selected vitamins and minerals in Comprehensive Prostate Formula are known to be especially important for prostate health.
Comprehensive Prostate Formula approaches prostate and urinary health from both a botanical and a nutritive perspective, with sufficient quantities of ingredients that have been extensively studied in research trials around the world.
