palmetto. Make sure your getting the highest quality Saw Palmetto “Supercritical Co2 Extraction”.This extract of the dwarf palm plant, also known as Serenoa repens, is the most popular herbal preparation used to promote prostate health.

And for good reason, as many studies have demonstrated its effectiveness and safety.

How does it work? Well, saw palmetto helps reduce the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Plus, it contains compounds that also promote proper inflammatory response.

Pomegranate Fruit Extract

Biologically active compounds in pomegranate juice, known as ellagitannins, are known to have powerful antioxidant effects and promote proper inflammatory response.

Of course, you could drink pomegranate juice daily. However, it’s not only expensive but also loaded with sugar you don’t need.

 

Prostate Power Protection Beta Sitosterols

Plant Sterols with Beta-Sitosterol 

Beta Sitosterols

This plant-derived nutrient is popular in Europe to promote prostate and urinary tract health — mainly because of its benefit on lowering levels of the 5-alpha reductase enzyme to reduce DHT.

In one randomized, double-blind study of 200 men, half the group received 180 mg of beta-sitosterol daily, while the other half received a placebo. After six months, the beta-sitosterol group saw improvement in the International Prostate Symptom Score, the measurement of urine flow, and the amount of residual urine remaining in the bladder.

To confirm these effects of beta-sitosterol, another study was performed using 177 men. Again, urinary flow values increased while residual urine volumes decreased substantially. The International Prostate Symptom Scores showed a statistically significant improvement.

Pumpkin Seed Powder

Pumpkin seeds contain protective compounds called phytosterols, which help promote proper prostate size and function.

They also contain chemicals that help reduce transformation of testosterone into DHT. As you recall, low levels of DHT are associated with proper prostate size.

Additionally, pumpkin seeds are a natural diuretic and offer excellent antioxidant protection for your prostate.

Pygeum

This bark of the African plum tree has been used medicinally for thousands of years and promotes proper inflammatory response.

Pygeum is another “heavy hitter” when it comes to prostate health, shown to improve urinary symptoms.

Numerous scientific studies report that pygeum significantly reduces urinary hesitancy, urinary frequency, and the number of times patients need to wake up at night to urinate.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health give pygeum an “A” grade for use in promoting prostate health against benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Strong scientific evidence supports this use.

Boswellia extract is derived from the sappy resin of the boswellia tree.

Back in the 1970s, scientists in Germany discovered that boswellia could be used to help promote proper inflammatory response in the body. Although boswellia is a potent herb best known for supporting joint health, this has the ability to promote proper inflammatory response.

Stinging Nettle Root Powder   

Stinging nettle root is another compound widely used in Europe for prostate health to treat BPH.

Nettle root contains numerous biologically active chemicals that may influence the function of the prostate, interact with sex hormones, and promote proper inflammatory response.

This little-known extract is believed to inhibit the production of DHT, that troublesome hormone in the testosterone family that can negatively impact your prostate health.

Studies suggest that stinging nettle, in combination with other herbs (especially saw palmetto), may be effective at relieving symptoms such as lowered urinary flow, incomplete emptying of the bladder, post-urination dripping, and the constant urge to urinate.
