Estrogen and Prostate

Estrogen and healthy prostate

Restore youthful hormonal balance

Estrogen dla Kobiet -

Detrimental factors like the aging process, along with the daily bombardment of damaging environmental estrogen-like compounds, can affect the cellular structure of a woman’s breast.1-3 Research shows that specific botanical extracts can positively influence cellular status and remove some of the anxiety women face about maintaining a healthy balance of estrogens.

Estrogen is broken down to several important metabolites in the body including the good 2-hydroxyestrone and the bad 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone. Scientists have identified nutrients like indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that can tip the delicate balance of estrogens in favor of the good form.4,7

Women seeking to proactively restore their youthful hormonal balance can take a phytonutrient-based formula that helps support healthy estrogen activity and detoxification. Some of the active ingredients in the Estrogen For Women are:

  • Phytoestrogens that function as selective estrogen receptor modifiers to help block certain estrogen receptor sites on cells, thus blocking bad estrogen from exerting its harmful effects8
  • Plant lignans that boost beneficial enterolactone levels and favorably alter estrogen metabolism9-11

Ultra Prostate Formula

Maintain Healthy Prostate Function

A huge percentage of men over age 50 suffer from prostate-induced discomforts. Ultra Natural Prostate contains these scientifically substantiated nutrients to help protect the prostate gland and maintain its healthy function:

  • Standardized lignans from flax seed and the Norway spruce knotwood convert to enterolactone, which has demonstrated anti-estrogen and anti-DHT (5α-Dihydrotestosterone) effects that are of particular importance for the aging prostate gland.1-3
  • AprèsFlex ® is an ultra-absorbable extract of the Boswellia herb. AprèsFlex® supports normal inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase4-6 (or 5-LOX for short), an enzyme that is associated with undesirable cell division changes.6,8 Boswellia extract has a positive impact on a variety of pathways that help maintain and support healthy prostate tissue.9,10 And AprèsFlex® absorbs into the blood 52% better than previously available boswellia extracts.11
  • Stinging and dwarf nettle root extracts. Testosterone converts to estrogen at higher rates as men age. Prostate cells are sensitive to estrogen’s growth stimulatory effects. Nettle helps support prostate cells against excess estrogen levels.12,13 In one large double-blind study, nettle extract significantly supported urinary tract comfort and normal urine flow rates compared with placebo.14
  • Saw palmetto extract . Saw palmetto has been shown to interfere with DHT activity in the prostate, inhibit the alpha-adrenergic receptor activity (to support normal urinary flow), and help regulate inflammatory actions in the prostate gland.15,16
  • Pumpkin seed oil enhances the composition of the free fatty acids in saw palmetto to enhance its benefits.17
  • Pygeum is an extract that helps suppress inflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes to help keep the prostate gland placid and comfortable.18-21
  • Beta-sitosterol , the most biologically active constituent of pygeum, is also included for added support.22-24
  • Graminex® Flower Pollen Extract has been shown to relax smooth muscle tone of the urethra, counteract DHT, and help regulate inflammatory reactions.25-30
  • Boron is a mineral that helps protect bones and slows elevation of PSA, probably by protecting against protein-degrading enzymes in the prostate gland.31,32
  • Lycopene is the carotenoid that makes tomatoes red … and helps maintain healthy DNA gene function in prostate cells.33-37
  • Sunflower-derived phospholipids enhance absorption of active compounds.
