The prostate is a male urinary and reproductive accessory gland; it's about the size of a walnut and is located at the base of the bladder, in front of the rectum. It helps maintain the health of the lower urinary tract and supports male reproductive function. As the gland surrounds the urethra that drains the bladder, prostate disorders can often affect urination. The three most common disorders of the prostate are: an inflammatory infection called prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is a non-cancerous enlargement and cancer, the most frequent male malignancy.
The prostate gland's health is closely linked to the production and efficient use of testosterone and other related hormones. Testosterone production often lowers as men age. With this decrease in testosterone, dietary factors and lifestyle, prostate health can be influenced significantly. Prostate health is a concern for every man; Prostate Support Complex can help to maintain a virile, healthy prostate.
Zinc : The prostate needs 10 times more zinc than any other organ in the body. It is required for normal testosterone and sperm production. Prostate Support Complex provides Zinc as bisglycinate, an easily absorbed chelated zinc. By altering steroid hormone metabolism, zinc supplementation may reduce prostate enlargement.
Lycopene : Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant which is involved in the red colour of tomatoes, watermelons, guavas and pink grapefruits. Emerging research suggests that lycopene may help to prevent prostate cancer and may reduce existing tumour size.
Selenium : Selenium is essential for prostate health, a powerful defence against cell damage. Increasing its intake has been shown to reduce prostate-cancer risk.
