Prostavor combines a selection of all-natural ingredients to help support prostate health. The unique synergistic formulation has shown to block the 5alpha-reductase enzyme, preventing testosterone from converting to dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
In a clinical trial, 287 Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) patients who had been treated with Stinging Nettle showed a significant reduction in IPSS, serum PSA and prostate size.
In a 2011 randomised double-blind study with 100 BPH patients results shown that Stinging nettle had a better effect in relieving clinical symptoms in BPH patients compared to the placebo.
In a study conducted with 431 patients to compare a combination of Saw Palmetto and Stinging Nettle with the synthetic 5alha-reductase inhibitor Finasteride results showed a equivalent in efficacy for both treatments. The safety analysis showed that more patients in the finasteride group reported adverse events than in the group treated with Saw Palmetto and Stinging Nettle
Pumpkin Seed contains many useful nutrients such as amino acids, phytosterols, unsaturated fatty acids, phenolic compounds and minerals important to healthy life and wellbeing.
Studies have shown that Pumpkin seed can inhibit the action of 5alpha-reductase and have antiandrogenic effects on rats.
In a randomized, placebo-control, double blind study, Pumpkin seed has shown to increase hair count but not hair thickness when compared with the placebo group
In a double blind, placebo-controlled randomized comparative study results have shown a significant decrease in IPSS, AMS and ADAM scores along with reduced postvoiding residual volume in patients treated with Beta sitosterol and a Saw palmetto combination
Another study done on Beta-sitosterol showed that men who took Beta-sitosterol had better urine flow rate than men who took a placebo
Numerous studies have shown that Saw Palmetto has the ability to be an effective inhibitor of the 5alpha-reductase 1-receptor which shows it to be a useful alternative to Finasteride.
Some studies have noted that Saw Palmetto can effectively inhibit both type 1 and type 2 isoenzymes of 5alpha-reductase
As a 5alpha-reductase inhibitor Saw Palmetto prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT can contribute to benign prostate enlargement as well as male pattern baldness
Laboratory and animal studies suggest that Vitamin D can inhibit carcinogenesis and slow tumor progression by promoting cell differentiation and inhibiting metastasis
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for general health and wellbeing
Zinc is an essential mineral required in many biochemical pathways, it is required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes and plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis and cell division.
Zinc is very important nutrient for general health and wellbeing
Selenium might play a role in cancer prevention through its many effects that include: DNA repair, apoptosis, hormone metabolism and protection against oxidative damage.
Selenium is a very important trace element for general health and wellbeing
In a study of 118 men to compare the relationship between plasma carotenoids, particularly lycopene, and prostate cancer risk has shown that lycopene may contribute to lower prostate cancer risk but not disease progression. This means lycopene can be used prophylactically against prostate cancer
In another study the effects of lycopene was examined on oxidative damage and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels in patients already diagnosed with prostate cancer. The results of this study showed that the serum PSA concentrations decreased by 17.5%
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protect the cells from the damaging effects of free radicals that if unchecked can contribute to cancer development.
Vitamin E might also be able to block the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines formed in the body.
Vitamin E can also enhance the bodies immune function.
Vitamin E is essential for general health and wellbeing.
Resveratrol’s very high antioxidant potential has exhibited antitumor activity. This anticancer properties have been confirmed by many in vitro and in vivo studies.
Some other effects of Resveratrol are: anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, cardioprotective, Phyto estrogenic and neuroprotective effects
Vitamin B6 is essential for general health and wellbeing.
Piperine is a potent antioxidant which protect the body against free radicals.
Piperine has also shown to increase the absorption of essential nutrients like selenium.
In recent studies Piperine has shown cytotoxic activity on cancerous cells in compared with normal cells. This shows that Piperine can be a strong anti-cancer agent.
