Description: ProState™ is an evidence-based formula designed to promote men’s reproductive and urinary health without side effects. Saw palmetto enhances prostate health and healing after surgery. It works together with pygeum and stinging nettle to support healthy urine flow and bladder emptying. Pygeum and stinging nettle also promote male sexual and reproductive health. Working on similar pathways that support prostate health, these herbs also support normal hair growth.
Uses: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a nearly universal result of the aging process in men. As the prostate gland enlarges, it can cause both obstructive and irritative symptoms. Saw palmetto berry extract is an herbal product used maintain healthy prostate function. Studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of saw palmetto in supporting normal urine flow and reducing nocturia . Medications prescribed for BPH can have side-effects. Saw palmetto is well tolerated, there are no known drug interactions, and reported side effects have been both minor and rare . Saw palmetto appears to function by causing contraction of prostatic epithelial tissues, via a nonhormonal mechanism . Its action does not affect serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels and therefore does not interfere with prostate cancer detection .
Similar to saw palmetto, Pygeum (Prunus africana) bark extract has been shown to improve urologic function and flow measures . Researchers suggest the effects of Pygeum include inhibition of growing factors, anti-inflammation, and anti-estrogenic actions . The major effects of Pygeum africanum have been reported to be caused by its main ingredient, B-Sitosterol, which is present in high concentrations in the Pygeum africanum extract as well as saw palmetto and Urtica dioica extract .
Urtica dioica is extract from the root of a stinging nettle and it is widely used for male reproductive/urinary health worldwide. Although the specific, molecular mechanism of action has yet to be conclusively determined, its effects and benefits for lower urinary tract function have been well documented [6, 7].
Male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, is similar to BPH in that it is another unavoidable result of aging for many adult men. It is characterized as a slow transformation of large scalp terminal hair follicles to shorter, thinner, and less deep vellus hair with a much shorter anagen . It is also similar to BPH in
that it is related to hormonal changes with age. Components of Pygeum africanum extract, saw palmetto berry extract, and Urtica dioica extract, have also been demonstrated to help maintain the integrity of existing hair, and the maintenance of normal hair growth .
