Prost-Rx™ 90 Capsules
Unbeknownst to most people, a substantial percentage of medications used in the United States contain active ingredients derived from plant sources. In Asian and European countries, physicians often write herbal-based prescriptions. Although this is not common practice in this country (although it should be), there are many beneficial nutritional formulations available here in the United States that contain plant extracts used in traditional herbal medicine, including herbal extracts that are on the cutting-edge of research for support of optimal prostate health.
A number of normal biological events in aging men affect prostate function and structure. After the age of 40, prostate cells begin to continually multiply, which is why 60% of men between the ages of 40 and 60 suffer from prostate-induced discomforts. If a man lives long enough, chances are very high that he will experience the undesirable effects of an enlarged prostate (known as benign prostatic hyperplasia [BPH]), which consist primarily of urinary flow problems. This includes frequent urination, especially during the night, which results in impaired sleep. Urinary flow is impaired because the urinary tract is surrounded by the prostate, which restricts the flow of urine when the prostate becomes enlarged. The underlying cause of prostate enlargement can be attributed to aging-related hormonal alterations. These hormonal shifts result in enhanced levels of two metabolites of testosterone that adversely affect prostate function estradiol (the predominant type of estrogen) and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Specifically, these hormonal changes are 1) a decrease in testosterone production, 2) an increase in estradiol production, 3) a corresponding decrease in testosterone to estradiol ratios, and 4) an increase in DHT levels. Prostate cells are sensitive to estrogen's growth stimulatory effects and, thus, estrogen stimulates proliferation of the stromal cells in the prostate (in part by inflicting DNA damage to prostate cells). This cell proliferation, coupled with the prostate-thickening effects associated with DHT, results in unwanted prostate enlargement that is the cause of the numerous urinary discomforts being experienced by aging men.
Fortunately, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has been at the forefront of herbal nutrition science, which has included the application of natural compounds used in traditional herbal medicine to promote healthy prostate function. These traditional "old school" herbs have been combined with "new school" compounds to create a Hi-Tech Health and Wellness supplement called Prost-Rx™. This "old school meets new school" formulation helps to tackle the problematic issues being experienced by men with prostate dysfunction. The prostate-friendly herbal compounds used in Prost-Rx™ include saw palmetto extract pygeum extract beta-sitosterol and stinging nettle extract. Serenoa repens (saw palmetto) (45% extract) has been shown to interfere with DHT activity in the prostate and also help support normal urinary flow and control inflammatory actions. Pygeum africanum (pygeum) (12.5% extract) yields two active components (beta-sitosterol and campesterol), of which beta-sitosterol is the most biologically active. Beta-sitosterol demonstrates several mechanisms to support prostate health, including interfering with the synthesis of aging-related increased prostaglandin formation and also by helping to shrink prostate tissue through the action of its pentacyclic triterpenes. Prost-Rx™ includes both pygeum and additional amounts of beta-sitosterol in its formula. Urtica dioica (stinging nettle) extract helps support prostate cells against excess estrogen by naturally reducing the conversion of testosterone to estrogen (this also enhances free testosterone levels) and also by supporting healthy estrogen levels by inhibiting the binding of estrogen to its protein carrier - sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Prost-Rx™ also incorporates Ptychopetalum olacoides extract (muira puama), Epimedium extract (horny goat weed), and Belizean man vine extract. These three compounds have also been used in traditional herbal medicine and are incorporated to help support libido and sexual function that may be compromised as a result of an unhealthy prostate. Prost-Rx™ then rounds off its formulation with additional herbal compounds, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that also have been shown to support a healthy prostate, including quercetin, lycopene,vitamins E and B-6, zinc, L-alanine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine.
To help comfort and support quality of life, the ingredients in Prost-Rx™ may be a cornerstone of a successful male anti-aging supplement protocol!
