Saw Palmetto berry extract (Serenoa repens) Saw Palmetto berry is rich in fatty acids and important phytosterols. Saw Palmetto inhibits the enzyme activity of 5-alpha reductase, interfering the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone(DHT) binding to the androgen receptor, by relaxing smooth muscle tissue.
Beta-Sitosterol β-sitosterol are plant sterols found in all plants and herbs containing a chemical structures similar to that of cholesterol. Beta-sitosterol helps control certain inflammatory proteins that modify the production of cytokine and its activity have an influence on the prostate enlargement that eases the symptoms of BPH (frequency and volume of urination)
l-Alanine Alanine is a non essential amino acid, important for the metabolism of tryptophan and pyridoxine. Alanine helps regulate blood sugar and is necessary for the promotion of proper blood glucose levels from dietary protein. Alanine is involved in gluconeogenesis - the manufacture of glucose from alanine by the liver. L-alanine is present in prostate fluid and plays a role as an activator of pyruvate kinase in the prostate. Alanine is an important source of energy for the muscles, the brain and the central nervous system. Alanine helps in the metabolism of sugars and organic acids and strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies. There is evidence that Alanine serves as a cell volumizer.
Pygeum bark extract (pygeum africanum) Pygeum protects the bladder's smooth muscle against cellular damage and improves urologic function and flow. Pygeum extract comes from the bark of a large evergreen tree found in central and southern Africa that contain several important compounds includimg beta-sitosterol, other plant estrogens, triterpenes, ferulic acids and more.
Pumpkin seed extract Pumpkin seeds are a very good source of essential fatty acids, amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Pumpkin seed components may interrupt the triggering of prostate cell multiplication by testosterone and DHT. The carotenoids found in pumpkin seeds, and the omega-3 fats found in pumpkin seeds are important for their potential prostate benefits and pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc.
Nettle leaf extract (Urtica Dioca) A plants of the genus Urtica where stinging nettle is a species containing important phytonutrients including a histamine, acetylcholine and serotonin. Stinging Nettle may help inhibit an enzyme that triggers the enzyme aromatase. Stinging nettle is approved for internal use by the German Commission E for difficulty in urination and in benign prostatic hyperplasia stages.
Quercetin The plant pigment quercetin is a dominant flavonoid found in found mainly in citrus fruit. In the body quercetin has anti-inflammatory activity with direct inhibition of several initial processes of inflammation.
Sarsparilla root extract (Smilax officinalis) An adaptagenic tropical plant containing rich flavonoids. As smilax it contains at least four phytosterols of the progesterone class.
Licorice root extract (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Licorice is an adaptogen that comes from the root of the herbaceous perennial Glycyrrhiza glabra. Licorice blocks the enzyme (11 beta-HSD), which degrades cortisone allowing the bodys natural steroids produced by the adrenal glands to reduce inflammation.
l-Glutamic Acid The fluid produced by the prostate gland contains glutamic acid, where it plays a role in normal function of the prostate. Glutamic Acid (Glutamate), a non essential amino acid, a precursor to Glutamine and GABA, is a key molecule in cellular metabolism serving as a metabolic fuel for other functional roles in the body.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5 phosphate) Pyridoxil 5'-phosphate acts as a coenzyme in all transamination reactions, and in some decarboxylation and deamination reactions of amino acids. Vitamin B-6 is comprised of three natural organic compounds; pyridoxal (Pyridoxal 5 phosphate), pyridoxamine and pyridoxine. Pyridoxal 5 phosphate is the bioactive metabolite of the coenzyme Vitamin B-6 involved in many important enzymatic reactions.
Vitamin B3 (Inositol hexinicotinate) Vitamin B3 helps the body make stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts of the body. Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin, whose derivatives play essential roles in energy metabolism in the cell and DNA repair.
Lycopene The antioxidant lycopene is an open-chain unsaturated carotenoid found primarily in tomatos and other plants that imparts the red color.
L-Glycine Glycine is a non essential amino acid utilized by the liver in the synthesis of other nonessential amino acids and part of the tripeptide glutathione.
Zinc (Monomethionine) Zinc is an anabolic mineral required for the production of thyroid hormone, growth hormone and testosterone. Zinc is ten times more concentrated in the the prostate than any other organ. Zinc blocks the body's production of dihydrotestosterone and helps regulate testosterone in the prostate. The second most ocurring essential nutrient is zinc. Zinc is involved in about 3000 different protein complexes in the body.
Magnesium (Glycinate Chelate) Magnesium âMagnesium glycinateâ is a, better tolerated and more absorbable, chelated form of the mineral magnesium (Mg). The element magnesium is an essential mineral involved in over 350 biochemical actions in the body. Magnesium relaxes smooth muscle, helps dilate blood vessels and maintains blood flow.
Copper (Glycinate Chelate) Copper is an essential nutrient found primarily in the bloodstream, as a co-factor in various enzymes, and in copper-based body pigments. Zinc and copper compete for absorption in the digestive tract so a dietary 10:1 balance must be maintained to prevent a deficiency.
Selenium (L-Selenomethioine) Selenium is an essential trace element which functions as cofactor for reduction of antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidases and thioredoxin reductase, and plays a role in cellular apoptosis. Selenium, bound to the amino acid methionine as L-selenomethionine, can be incorporated into tissue proteins without further metabolic change.
Chromium (Polynicotinate) Chromium is an essential mineral and important to the metabolism of glucose and protein, managing cholesterol, insulin regulation, thyroid function, and serotonin production.
