prostate – Prostate Supplement
$ 19.95–$ 39.00
ProState is a scientifically formulated balanced prostate supplement that combines the most effective ingredients from traditional and herbal medicine into a potent combination which promotes overall prostate health and satisfaction.
ProState™ is a natural, balanced, safe, and effective prostate supplement designed to relieve symptoms of enlarged prostate over a reasonable period of time. ProState provides convenient and affordable full spectrum prostate care based on science, not myth.
Urological studies support the practice of the using herbal substances to alleviate the symptoms associated with an enlarged and inflamed prostate. Many urologists encourage the use of herbal preparations to help relieve the symptoms in their patients with chronic prostate disease as herbal remedies for prostate symptoms have proven to be effective and safe. ProState is a multifaceted natural herbal supplement formula designed to benefit and support prostate health. ProState is also safe to use combined with prescription medicines for BPH and side effects profile compares favorably with prescription medications.
Many prostate problems happen as men approach their 40s and their bodies begin converting testosterone to DHT. Decreasing urinary stream, recurring urinary tract infection, and dribbling after urination (called post-void dribbling by Physicians,) are some of the common symptoms that a man experiences. Treatments for enlarged prostate vary, but most prostate problems not involving cancer can often be reduced with herbal remedies.
Not Just Another Prostate Supplement
Among the many enlarged prostate herbal remedies, saw palmetto seems to be the most popular natural help and remedy. Saw palmetto can reduce enlarged prostate symptoms by several mechanisms. It concentrates in the urine and has an anti-microbial effect at these concentrations and many urologists refer to it as a simple urinary anti-septic. It may also function by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Saw Palmetto has been demonstrated to lessen the urge for night urination (nocturia) by more than 25%. A significant portion of men surveyed report excellent relief from urgency, frequency, post-void urgency and nocturia, which exceeds the relief from symptoms given by prescription medications. Men who suffer from non- malignant prostate enlargement often benefit from the use of saw palmetto alone or in combination.

Saw Palmetto, Prunus Africanum/Pygeum, Sinc Gluconate, Lycopene, Levoarginine, Glutamic Acid, Absorbic Acid
If you respond positively to one or more of the following indicators after taking ProState for one to three months of use ProState is working as expected.
Improved total ease of urination, decreased urinary discomfort, decreased burning or stinging while urinating or immediately after urination, decreased need to urinate frequently, decreased sense of urgency, decreased need to urinate at night, return to normal bladder habits.
Pygeum is an herbal extract from the bark of Prunus africana. It is used to alleviate some of the discomfort caused by inflammation in patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). Bark extract is commonly used in traditional African medicine. Pygeum (P. africanum bark extract) has been observed to moderately improve urinary symptoms associated with enlargement of the prostate gland or prostate inflammation. Numerous human studies report that pygeum significantly reduces urinary hesitancy, urinary frequency, the number of times patients need to wake up at night to urinate, and pain with urination in men who experience mild-to- moderate symptoms. However, pygeum does not appear to reduce the size of the prostate gland or reverse the process of BPH. It is unclear how pygeum compares to the effectiveness or safety of other medical therapies, such as prescription drugs (e.g. alpha-blockers or 5-alpha reductase inhibitors), surgical approaches, or other herbs/supplements such as saw palmetto. There is ongoing study in this area. Patients with urinary symptoms or BPH should communicate with their doctor or urologist about various available treatment options. Pygeum does interfere with some Cytochrome p450 enzymes and especially inhibits CYP3A4 and CYP2C9. Dosing of Pygeum should therefore be conservative when combined with prescription medications.
Saw Palmetto: The fruit of the saw palmetto is highly enriched with fatty acids and phytosterols. Extracts of the fruits have been the subject of intensive research for the symptomatic treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In numerous clinical trials Saw Palmetto preparations have been found safe and effective in the treatment of for mild-to-moderate BPH when compared to placebo, finasteride, and tamsulosin.
Saw palmetto extract was comparable to tamsulosin and finasteride in this meta-analysis. Longer-term 2 year open studies suggest that saw palmetto reduces the risk of men with BPH ultimately needing to have surgery. Zinc Gluconate is an important nutrient for general health and immunity.
Zinc gluconate is one of the best absorbed forms of zinc which is present in many foods. Zinc is an important nutrient for the prostate and is often concentrated in the semen. Zinc concentration in urine may play an antimicrobial role in bladder and prostate health as well. Zinc is usually considered safe but prolonged intake of more than 100 mg/day of Zinc mineral is associated with anemia. Lycopene is recognized as a micro-nutrient that supports eye health, and also supports micro-vascular health and membrane structure in the prostate. It also functions as an anti-oxidant in the body. Full mechanism of benefit to prostate is unclear but seems to be related to vascular structure and non-specific anti-inflammatory effects.
Glutamic Acid and Levoarginine are amino-acids that our body uses as nutrients. They are found in many different foods. They are considered truly safe as nutrients. They are not considered essential amino-acids as our body can and does synthesize them from other amino-acids. They both have essential functions in the body in both the nervous system and the vascular system. They act more efficiently when taken in their pure forms as they are more available for their functional purposes. This is primarily to produce neurotransmitters and vasoactive substances. Even though they are essential to normal health and metabolism a minimal daily requirement is not set for them because the body synthesizes them and re-synthesizes them in a complex equilibrium. 4 grams of purified Glutamic Acid is considered the maximum daily dose in a well hydrated subject. Studies done in the 1950s suggested an increased frequency of kidney stones unless fluids were increased to maintain urine flow. 4 to 6 grams of purified Levoarginine per day have been proven to be non-toxic and are frequently used by body builders. Again flushing occurs but with less frequency than with Glutamic Acid, and again high fluid intake is suggested with large intake of all purified amino-acids products.
Ascorbic acid better known as Vitamin C is a well-known essential nutrient with multiple benefits discussed elsewhere. In the prostate it functions to improve mucosal healing, amplifies antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects of other substances and is concentrated in the urine exposing the prostate to local higher concentrations.
ZINC: The highest concentration of zinc in the body is in the prostate gland, making it an important nutrient for prostate health. Men suffering from prostate enlargement often have low level of zinc in their prostate fluid and semen.
A well-known herb used for prostate treatment is pygeum. Pygeum herb has been used as a remedy for enlarged prostate since the mid-18th century. Some herbs have substances that may help reduce prostate growth by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Herbal remedies are effective and have few side effects, actually their effectiveness and safety compares favorably with prescription medicines.
