Prostate Health (60 caps)

Overview of Prostate Health Formula

Good 4 Life Prostate Health Formula is a prefect modern combination of the key vitamins, minerals, and more importantly most effective herbs that promote the body’s own natural functions of the prostate.
 
The prostate gland is a ring shaped gland that surrounds the urethra where it exits the bladder. It makes an alkaline liquid which forms most of seminal reproductive fluid. As men mature into mid-life, the prostate gland cells can become enlarged.  Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. Sometimes the enlarged prostate gland squeezes on the urethra and interferes with urinary flow causing pain and other urological issues.
 
Over 50% of all men over 50 years old suffer from an enlarged prostate and its associated symptoms.  After 50, 80% of all men will suffer from uncomfortable symptoms that may include, increased frequency and urgency of urination, sleep disturbing urination, and lower back pain.
 
Hormones are thought to play a role in the development of BPH, once in the prostate cells, testosterone is converted into another, powerful male hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT).  DHT triggers prostate cells to divide and thereby increase in numbers.  DHT levels are 5 times higher in an enlarged prostate glands over those of a normal size. If the conversion of testosterone to DHT is stopped, BPH does not occur, and in can sometimes even be reversed after it has developed. 
 
Men in their mid to late 40s and beyond should look to their healthcare provider for information on the prostate and preventative measures that should be taken.
 
Below is an abbreviated list of ingredients found in Good 4 Life's Prostate Health Formula.

Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto is especially helpful to men suffering from prostate gland problems and BPH. Saw palmetto relieves symptoms of BPH, such as urinary frequency and urgency, excessive nighttime urination, or delayed urination.
 
Additionally, Saw Palmetto promotes optimum anti-inflammatory responses in the prostate to reduce swelling and promote normal urine flow. Moreover, Saw Palmetto has been shown in studies to inhibit conversion of testosterone to DHT which can stop and even reverse the swelling and enlargement of the prostate.

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper has traditionally been used to promote prostate and urinary health because it contains capsaicin and saponins which stimulate blood flow.

Beta Sitosterol Oil

The oils of some plants contain a mixture of phytosterols, or plant hormones, called beta sitosterol. Research suggests that a minimum of 20mg per day of beta sitosterol will increase urine flow and decrease residual urine volume significantly. Research also suggests that beta sitosterol inhibits prostaglandin synthesis thus reducing inflammation.

Pygeum Africanum

Pygeum is grown in  the high forested areas of Africa where it has been used for thousands of years for maintaining and improving prostate health. Today, both Germany and France have approved it for medical use for prostate issues. Also the bark of this tall African tree is an excellent source of beta sitosterol (see above) .  Research also supports that pygeum africanum is synergistically more effective when used with saw palmetto.

Green Tea Extract

In a recent double-blind trial, men with precancerous changes in the prostate received a green tea extract or a placebo for one year. The outcome yielded a favorable statistically significant difference for those men receiving the green tea extract versus the placebo suggesting green tea extract may help promote prostate health in men at high risk of developing the disease.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin comes from North America, and African and South Asian Tropical regions.  Several years ago, researchers noticed that men who live in areas where pumpkin seeds are a diet staple have a lower incidence of prostate problems. This may be due to the essential fatty acid content in pumpkin, as EFAs have been found to be useful for optimal prostate health. Also a good source of Zinc, Pumpkin contains nutrients which promote prostate, bladder, and urinary tract health. Pumpkin is most useful when combined with nettle and/or saw palmetto, all of which are in this formula.

Nettle

Nettle is gaining ever-growing recognition for its positive effects in supporting prostate, bladder, and urinary tract health. It promotes urine flow and supports less frequent urination.

L-Glycine and L-Glutamic Acid

Recently in a controlled trial, men with BPH received a supplement containing three amino acids including glycine and glutamic acid (the third being alanine). After three months, about half of these men reported reduced urgency, frequency, and/or less delay starting urine flow by reducing the amount of swelling in the prostate. Other similar controlled trials of this amino acid combination have produced similar results.

Lycopene

Lycopene is widely studied and has frequently been shown in numerous studies to promote prostate health. Highly regarded as an important ingredient in promoting men’s health Lycopene is the subject of more ongoing studies into it's anticarcinogenic effects. Lycopene is the most abundant carotenoid present in the prostate gland and serves as an antioxidant by protecting against free radical attacks in the prostate.
