Prostate Health Clinical Strength - 90 Softgels

  • Prostate Support
  • Clinical Strength Saw Palmetto, Beta-Sitosterol & Lycopene
  • Targeted Prostate Supportive Nutrients

NOW Clinical Strength Prostate Health is a synergistic combination of botanicals and nutrients that support a healthy prostate gland. Clinical Strength Prostate Health contains the botanicals Saw Palmetto Extract, Lycopene and Beta-Sitosterol at potencies that are comparable to those that have demonstrated to be effective in clinical trials.  Clinical Strength Prostate Health provides additional nutritional support with Zinc, Selenium, Quercetin and Vitamin D-3, which are known to play important roles in optimal prostate function.

The action of saw palmetto has been well studied, and the herb is popular in the treatment of prostate enlargement. Enlargement of the prostate gland affects millions of men older than 50 years of age, causing difficulty with urination and a sensation of swelling in the low pelvis or rectal area.

Research has shown that saw palmetto inhibits one of the active forms of testosterone in the body (dihydrotestosterone) from stimulating cellular reproduction in the prostate gland. Saw palmetto inhibits testosterone from binding to and thereby stimulating prostate cells. This serves to reduce multiplication of prostatic cells and reduces prostatic enlargement.

Saw palmetto is recommended to treat weakening urinary organs and the resulting incontinence that may occur in elderly people or women after menopause. Saw palmetto strengthens the urinary organs and has been recommended for kidney stones.

Lycopene is an antioxidant which prevents the formation of harmful by-products of metabolism called free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for damaging the body’s cells, as well as their genetic makeup, leading to prostate cancer and other chronic diseases.
Research has found that the benefits of lycopene appear to affect parts of the body where lycopene concentration is highest, such as in the prostate gland. as well as benefitz for bone and skin health, and male infertility.

Beta-sitosterol is a very important nutrient, and is the most important supplement you can take for good prostate health. It has many other benefits, and can be used by both men and women (especially to protect against breast cancer).

The anti-inflammatory effects of Beta-sitosterol plays a big part, as demonstrated in a study at the University of Frauenklin in Germany, men with prostate adenomas were given beta-sitosterol, which slowed tumor growth by decreasing their prostaglandin content. Another notable benefit of this supplement is the promotion of healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Zinc also plats a role in prostate health.  In a typical case of prostatitis, zinc levels are only ONE-TENTH of those in a normal prostate.
