Especially For Men

Dec 11, 2022 | Health & Wellness, Products

Chances are, if you’ve ever talked about prostate health, you were speaking with your doctor. People just don’t often converse freely about this important gland. But they know when it’s causing issues…

Truth is, guys over 40 should pay attention and take steps to make sure their prostate is healthy and happy. This includes eating right, exercising regularly and getting PSA levels checked at least every two years. (Make it every year if your PSA is over 2.5.)

Key supplements can also play a big role in prostate health. Men’s Formula combines saw palmetto, lycopene and other important nutrients for powerful support of the prostate gland. 

BENEFITS 

  • Supports the prostate gland 
  • Promotes male glandular health 
  • Helps quench free radicals 
  • Non-GMO blend

INGREDIENTS & HOW IT WORKS 

Saw palmetto palms grow for about seven years before they produce fruit. But oh, what a fruit! These dark purple berries naturally contain plant sterols, flavonoids and fatty acids. One particular constituent, beta-sitosterol, has been studied for its valuable support of the prostate gland. 

Researchers have found that saw palmetto helps slow the production of 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. DHT can negatively affect libido, prostate gland size and other health concerns for a middle-aged man. 

Saw palmetto also helps reduce the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. This activated form often triggers prostate expansion. Saw palmetto helps support prostate health, which in turn aids sexual function and urinary system health and flow.  

Other nutrients in this blend include: 

  • Pumpkin seeds are packed with carotenoids (antioxidants) and phytosterols that support heart health. Beta-sitosterol is linked to prostate health. Studies have found that beta-sitosterol can improve urinary flow in men and can target prostate support when combined with saw palmetto. 
  • Lycopene concentrate. This antioxidant gives food its natural red color. Eating tomatoes and other high-lycopene foods helps protect the prostate gland and supports both cardio and immune health.  
  • Zinc helps the body maintain normal testosterone levels and may also support prostate health. 
  • Gotu kola has flavonoids and polyphenols that quench free radicals. It supports memory, cognitive ability and the circulatory system. 

Men’s Formula also includes pygeum bark extract and stinging nettle root extract.

HISTORY 

Native Americans, including the Seminoles of Florida, used saw palmetto berries for food. These fruits became part of Western medicine in the 1870s and were officially included in the US Pharmacopoeia in 1906. 

By about 700 AD, both the Aztecs and Incas were eating tomatoes. In the 16th century, Europeans visiting North America took tomato plants home for decorating. Imagine garden vegetables adorning your living room! Lycopene was discovered in 1876.

Our lycopene comes from non-GMO tomatoes that are grown in the US from a particular plant breed that yields the best lycopene.
