Label Claim:

Saw Palmetto is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve the urologic symptoms (e.g. weak urine flow, incomplete voiding, frequent daytime and night time urination) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Maintains healthy prostate functioning in healthy men.

Stinging Nettle is used in Herbal Medicine to help reduce difficulty in urination associated with the early stages of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Panax Ginseng: (level IV) and preclinical studies; a peer-reviewed article notes ginseng may have a positive effect on prostate health (Junkun et al, 2006); preclinical studies offer support that ginseng protects oxidative damage of the prostate (Kim et al, 2004; Bespalov et al, 2001), as well that ginsenoside supress prostate specific antigen (PSA), and also that ginseng reduces prostate weight via hormonal adjustment of testosterone (Fahim et al, 1982).

Pygeum (Level I) this herb has been traditionally used for urologic symptoms of BPH, as well it has studied in randomized controlled trials by Chatelain et al (1999), Breza et al (1998), as well as considerable preclinical evidence has been published in the literature as supportive evidence for the higher levels of evidence mentioned.

Lycopene (Level III and IV) epidemiological studies have noted that lycopene intake reduces the risk for prostate cancer (Bowen et al, 2002; Giovannuci et al, 1995; Mills et al, 1989), one peer-reviewed article by Giovannuci and Clinton (1998) identified these two studies as being of the highest quality.

Pumpkin Seed: (Level I and II) evidence from a nonrandomized clinical trial by Carbin et al (1990) (Level II), as well as from a controlled randomized trial by Dreikorn (2002) (Level I), both of which trails are with regards to BPH.

Alanine, Gycine, Glutamine: (Level II) all three of these have been studied in combination in two clinical studies (Feinblatt and Gant, 1958; Damrau, 1962) in the treatment of BPH specifically, showing positive efficiency.

Beta-Sitosterol: (Level I) this isolate has been studied in three clinical trials with randomization and controls in the treatment of BPH (berges et al, 2000; Klippel et al, 1997; Kadow and Abrams, 1997) showing positive efficiency.

Vitamin A American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests there’s evidence of a link between higher levels of vitamins and better therapeutic outcome in early stage cancers.

Vitamin B6 (P5P) researchers have discovered that those diagnosed with early state prostate cancer were 29% less likely to die of it if they had a higher intake of vitamin B6.

Vitamin D3 study conducted at Stanford University published in Spet 1, 2005 issue of “cancer research” investigated the effectiveness of using a combination of prescription Vitamin D supplementation and low dose over the counter NSAID on in-vitro prostate cancer cells which slowed prostate cancer cell growth by 70%.

Vitamin E 2005 study showed that men with the highest levels of alpha-tocopherol in their blood at baseline had better prostate health than those with the lowest levels of the vitamin.

Copper added to formula balancing out zinc levels.

Selenium (selenomethionine) many experts agree that supplementing with selenium can dramatically reduce development of prostate cancer also colon and lung cancer.

Zinc in prostatitis, zinc levels are only one-tenth of those in a normal prostate [Fair & Heston 1977; Pfeiffer, 1978]
