Healthy prostate functions with ProstaHealth™

ProstaHealth™ is an advanced formula for men who want to prevent or to improve the prostate function, containing a well balanced mixture of ingredients of natural origin: herbs, plants and fruits combined with minerals, trace metals and vitamins, all with individually, well documented effects, proven by clinical studies.
In fact all the ingredients contained in ProstaHealth™, even if they all have different effects and working mechanisms very different, they have been combined in synergy with each other, complementing each other to guarantee an optimal prostate functions.

INGREDIENTS & DESCRIPTION

Quercetin is one of the most common flavonol because it is present in numerous vegetable species like the horse-chestnut, the the pot marigold, the thorn tree, the chamomile, the St. John’s wort and the gingko biloba, as well as in different foodstuffs like red grapes and red wine, red onion, green tea, blueberries, apples.
It is considered a natural suppressant of many intracellular enzymes. Moreover, Quercetin is a natural antioxidant.

Among its most important functions there are:

  • to restore the tocopherol (Vitamin E) after it has turned into free radical (tocopheryl-radical).
  • to detoxify the superoxide cell and stop the production of nitric oxide during inflammations.

Serenoa fruit
It is a plant form the south-east of United States, in particular along costs of the Atlantic Ocean and even in the hinterland. Native Americans use the fruit as food, but even for a big variety of problems connected to the urinary system and to the reproductive apparatus.

European Colonists learn easily to use it. For at least 200 years the dry extract was used to heal different diseases like urogenital problems. Actually, many researches have been executed on the fruit extracts and it has been shown that Serenoa Repens is very rich in fatty acids and in phytosterols.

These researches are the fruit of a meta-analysis published on the Journal of American Medical Association where it has been demonstrated the effectiveness on the treatment of benign pro static hyperplasia symptoms (swelling of the prostate) with placebo and among two of the most common drugs on sale.

Additionally, there are clinical trials that show the effectiveness of Serenoa Repens in the cure of men baldness. A research has demonstratedd that the combination between Serenoa Repens and the Urtica roots has shown in elderly people an effective improvement concerning symptoms of urinary tract but without the reduction of prostate dimensions, as it was already shown in February 2006 in a research published by the New England Journal of Medicine.
Further researches prove that the Serenoa Repens effect has a double mechanism, particularly the inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase, which interfering with the dihydrotestosteron connects with androgynous receptors and relaxes the smooth muscle in the same way as antagonist medicines, and a possible action as phytoestrogens.

Practically, the Serenoa provokes the inhibition of DHT connection to its receptor. Other in vitro studies have demonstrated that this plant has some properties even on the reduction of carcinogenic cells of prostate, but clinical trials concerning this discovery are missing.

Pygeum Africanum (Prunus africana)
Pygeum, also known as African plum tree, is an evergreen tree native to African forest regions. It can grow to approximately 45 m in height.

The thick leaves are oblong in shape; the flowers are small and white. Pygeum fruit is a red berry, resembling a cherry when ripe. The bark (red, brown, or gray) is the part of the plant used for medicinal purposes. Pygeum has been used to improve symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy and to improve sexual function. In France, Pygeum africanum extract (PAE) has become the primary course of treatment for enlarged prostate.

Pygeum also is therapeutic as an anti-inflammatory, to increase prostatic secretions and to decrease certain hormones in the glandular area, which reduces the hypertrophy (swelling). Other actions of Pygeum include increase in bladder elasticity and cell modifications.

PAE’s “phyto-estrogenic” action markedly reduces prostatic hypertrophy. Most trial results report improvement of BPH symptoms. When compared with saw palmetto in a clinical trial, it was demonstrated that saw palmetto produced greater reduction of symptoms and was better tolerated.

However, PAE may have greater effects on prostate secretion. By improving an underlying problem, PAE may improve sexual function. Pygeum clinical trials (mostly European) are encouraging.

The Shark Oil Story

Shark liver oil has been used for centuries in the Scandinavian countries, particularly by fishermen, who used it as a remedy for slow healing wounds and against irritation of the respiratory organs.

In the 19th century the use of shark liver oil almost died out, surviving only in a few fishing communities. It was to take more than a century before the use of the shark liver oil was revived, following the publications of scientific documentation regarding its beneficial effects.

In 1952, a young Swedish doctor, Astrid Brohult, M.D., discovered that the marrow from fresh calf bones given to children with leukemia stimulated their white cell production.

It was later shown that the stimulating factor was a group of substances known as Alkylglycerols, that had first been identified by two Japanese researchers in 1922 – in liver oil from sharks. The distribution of Alkylglycerols in nature has since been found to be widespread.

They occur in the lipids of various animal organs, for example in bone marrow fat, in the fat of the spleen and the liver, in erythrocytes and in milk (ten times more in human mother’s milk than in cow’s milk).

The highest source of Alkylglycerols was found to be in the liver of the Greenland shark, Somniosus microcephalus. The healing effects of Alkylglycerols on the tissues of the body have been confirmed over the last 40 years by extensive clinical and laboratory research, mainly conducted by Swedish physicians and scientists.

Besides the above-mentioned biological effects of the Alkylglycerols, it has been shown that patients with cancer of the uterine cervix, who were treated with Alkylglycerols before and during irradiation treatment, had 9% higher survival rate after five years, as compared to the control group.
