300mg Boswellia 4:1 / 300mg Saw Palmetto 4:1 / 250mg Beta-Sitosterol 45%
- Prostate support
- Hormone Support
- Improve urine flow
Prostate addresses the most important factors regarding prostate health: supporting healthy testosterone levels, maintaining prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, and fostering healthy prostate size and cell structure. Each serving of Prostate supplies research-backed nutrients that also help inhibit inflammatory factors that can affect your prostate and promote healthy urination.*
Benign prostate hyperplasia is a conditioned in which the prostate gland is enlarged and may cause obstructive and irritating urinary symptoms, such as impeding the flow of urine out of the bladder. Half of all men will develop BPH by age 50. VMI Sports Prostate includes several nutrients that are all-natural, safe, and may improve benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms, including pumpkin seed oil and saw palmetto.[1,10]*
IMPROVES URINE FLOW
Beta-Sitosterol is a natural substance structurally similar to cholesterol found in numerous plants, including saw palmetto berries. Research suggests that the potent phytosterol may improve urinary symptoms related to prostate enlargement and flow measures.[2,3,4]*
SUPPORTS HEALTHY MALE HORMONE LEVELS
In addition to promoting prostate health, beta-sitosterol may also support healthy hormone production in men as research indicates it also inhibits aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase. Aromatase is the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of testosterone to estradiol.*
LIMITS PSA ACTIVITY
PSA (or prostate-specific antigen) is a glycoprotein enzyme secreted by the epithelial cells of the prostate that serves as an indicator for various prostate conditionis, including prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Boron is an important trace mineral that supports natural testosterone production and has been shown in various studies to help inhibit prostate-specific antigen (PSA) activity.[7,8]
How many servings of Prostate should I take?
Consume one serving (two capsule) once per day, preferably with a meal.
Can I take more than one serving of Prostate per day?
We do not recommend consuming more than one serving in any 24-hour period.
What is Boswellia Serrata 4:1 Extract and what does it do?
Boswellia serrata is a large branching tree whose resin has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. The plant is rich in numerous bioactive compounds including β-boswellic acid, acetyl-β-boswellic acid, 11-keto-β-boswellic acid and acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid which have been noted to help inhibit proinflammatory enzymes, such as 5-lipoxygenase
What is Nettle 4:1 Extract and what does it do?
Nettle 4:1 is a high-potency extract derived from stinging nettle (urtica dioica). Studies in men with BPH document that stinging nettle extracts may help alleviate both short- and long-term urination problems with no side effects.[14,15]
What is Pygeum 4:1 Extract and what does it do?
Pygeum 4:1 is a high-potency extract of the African prune tree. Research using pygeum extracts have noted improvement in symptoms associated with BPH, including reductions in nocturia and improvements in both residual urine volume and peak urine flow.
What is Lycopene and what does it do?
Lycopene is a bright red carotenoid found in tomatoes and other red fruits. This powerful antioxidant has been document in various scientific studies to promotes healthy prostate size and function.[12,13]
Who can take Prostate?
Prostate is for any male looking for added hormone and prostate support as well as those that may be dealing with symptoms associated with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).
What can I stack Prostate with?
Prostate contains no stimulants and can be used with any other VMI Sports men’s health and wellness supplements, including DHEA and or DAACC for added hormone support.
