Prostate Supreme


Prostate Supreme provides a balanced and comprehensive support for optimal prostate health and function. This formulation promotes a healthy testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) balance, favorable aromatase activity to limit the conversion of testosterone to estradiol (found to cause prostate tissue proliferation and BPH), supports optimal bladder function, and it provides targeted nutritional and antioxidant support to rejuvenate the prostate and maintain health prostate health.

Who Should Take Prostate Supreme
Men interested in optimal prostate health and those with a self or family history of benign prostatic hypertrophy or hyperplasia (BPH), men experiencing frequency of urination, and men wishing to reduce risk for prostate cancer should take Prostate Supreme. Men over the age of 35 should take Prostate Supreme for prevention, whereas men over the age of 50 will likely need Prostate Supreme to avoid unpleasant symptoms related to BPH. Men with active prostate cancer should not take Prostate Supreme without consulting with their health care provider.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), swelling of the prostate gland, is commonly experienced by 50-60% of men over the age of 50. Healthy prostate function is essential to a man’s optimal urinary health and sexual vitality. For this reason many men, as they mature, become more concerned with sustaining and promoting their prostate health. The prostate is a small gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra, which is responsible for ensuring healthy urinary flow. Prostate Supreme contains many nutrients that have been found useful in supporting healthy prostate function; minerals, amino acids, a potent carotenoid, and well known herbs containing plant sterols and fatty acids.

The major known function of the prostate gland is to manufacture and secrete seminal fluid, which carries, nourishes, and protects the spermatozoa necessary for human reproduction. In addition, it helps maintain moisture that protects the lining of the urethra, the passage through which urine and seminal fluids flow out of the body.

Several studies have provided insight into seminal fluid. One study revealed that it is rich in the mineral zinc, and the amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid. Another study indicated that maintaining proper levels of zinc in the seminal fluid contributes to maintaining a healthy prostate. A third study revealed that 66% of the participating men showed signs of improved prostate health after 3 months of dietary supplementation with the amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid. Men store zinc in the prostate gland and zinc is needed for sperm production.

Lycopene is the most abundant carotenoid found in the prostate gland. This carotenoid provides the red color in tomatoes and pink grapefruit. It is an efficient quencher of singlet oxygen free radicals. Lycopene has been linked with reduced risk of prostate and cervical cancers, as well as supporting cardiovascular health.

The high-quality extracts from saw palmetto berries and pygeum are included for their legendary activity in sustaining healthy prostate and sexual function. The lipid fraction of pumpkin seeds are rich sources of beta-sitosterol, known to benefit prostate health. Saw palmetto berry, and its fatty acid constituents, is the most well studied, well known, and widely used herb for supporting prostate health. A 3-year study in Germany showed signs that saw palmetto extract significantly promoted prostate health in 73% of the participants. Pygeum, an extract from the bark of an African tree, has been studied in controlled trials over the past 25 years and has shown significant ability to promote prostate health.

Pumpkin seed is a rich source of zinc, fatty acids, and plant sterols, and has a long history of traditional use to maintain urinary tract and prostate health. Saw palmetto, pygeum bark, and pumpkin seed are also particularly rich sources of beta-sitosterol, which is found in almost all plants. Several double-blind placebo controlled studies have documented the ability of beta-sitosterol to support prostate health.

Several double-blind placebo controlled studies have documented the ability of beta-sitosterol to support prostate health.

Double-blind studies of extracts from the nettle plant have confirmed its ability to support prostate health. The nettle plant (Urtica dioica) affects natural sex steroid compounds and proteins that carry them in the body. Research out of The University of California, Berkeley has also concluded that DIM exhibits potent antiproliferative and antiandrogenic properties. We now know that DIM inhibits dihydrotestosterone (DHT) stimulation of DNA synthesis, that it is a strong competitive inhibitor of DHT binding to the androgen receptor, and is also an estrogen agonist. Chrysin, a flavonoid found in high concentrations in honey, has been shown to be an inhibitor of aromatase enzyme activity, reducing the over-production of proliferative estrogens from testosterone. Modified citrus pectin (MCP), also known as fractionated pectin, is a complex polysaccharide obtained from the peel and pulp of citrus fruits. Modified citrus pectin is rich in galactoside residues, giving it an affinity for certain types of cancer cells. Metastasis is one of the most life-threatening aspects of cancer and the lack of effective anti-metastatic therapies has prompted research on MCP's effectiveness in blocking metastasis of certain types of cancers including prostate cancer.

Epidemiological and laboratory data support a role for vitamin D in the growth and differentiation of human prostatic cells and mortality rates from prostate cancer are also inversely related to the availability of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. 1,25(OH)2D exerts prodifferentiating, antiproliferative, and antimetastatic effects on these cells. The consensus emerging from analytic epidemiologic studies is that low levels of UV radiation/vitamin D are indeed associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer in individual men.Vitamin D was added due to studies which link low vitamin D levels to increased incidence of prostate cancer and due to the literature support for the prodifferentiating, antiproliferative, and antimetastatic effects on prostate cancer cells.

How to Take Prostate Supreme
Take 2 capsules daily with food (one twice per day with meals is recommended) or as directed by your health care provider.

Note: Prostate Supreme is not intended to be a primary treatment for prostate cancer and is not a replacement for regular prostate check-ups, including digital examinations and blood studies (i.e.: PSA and prostatic acid phosphatase)

We ordered this for my 69 yr old husband who had been taking prescription medication for acute prostatitis. He is now using this and D-mannose (and is no longer on the medication) and doing great! When reseaching this product before buying, I was impressed that it contained so many prostrate supporting nutrients. We are very well pleased with this product so far...my huisband is on his second bottle.
