Prostate Support - 180 Gels
 
  • Supports Prostate Health
  • Standardized Saw Palmetto, Stinging Nettle & Lycopene
  • A Dietary Supplement

NOW Prostate Support is a synergistic formulation of the most potent and effective standardized herbs.  Saw Palmetto and Stinging Nettle Root extract have been shown in European studies to support prostate function.  We have provided additional nutritional support with Pumpkin Seed Oil, Zinc, Vitamin B-6 and Lycopene.

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.


Recent 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.

Stinging nettle is sold in Germany as an herbal drug for prostate diseases and as a diuretic. It is a common ingredient in other herbal drugs produced in Germany for rheumatic complaints and inflammatory conditions, particularly for the lower urinary tract and prostate.  It has been shown in studies to reduce the size of the prostate gland.
