Hundreds of thousands of men in the U.S. undergo prostate surgery each year and billions of dollars are spent on prostate-related issues.
The chance of having an enlarged prostate increases with age, with men over 70 years old having an 80% chance. An enlarged prostate is a result when DHT levels rise and cause the body to produce more prostate cells than are needed. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men.
Depletion of testosterone and high DHT levels affect libido, energy, strength, weight, blood pressure, and hair loss.
Many prostate health products don’t have all of the necessary ingredients to help shrink a swollen prostate. Many are incomplete or have very few of the necessary natural ingredients needed to help with prostate relief.
MyND Ultimate Prostate Support is an all-natural blend of key ingredients for optimizing prostate health and function that includes the following:
Vitamins B6 and E provide overall balance for prostate health and function, supporting trace elements that are beneficial for dealing with symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
Adequate zinc levels may help protect against some of the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Research has found that low levels of zinc in the prostate are associated with BPH as well as other prostate conditions.
Selenium provides protective antioxidants and works to decrease the risk for the development of prostate-related issues.
Copper A nutritional supplement designed for prostate health should maintain a proper balance between zinc and copper because of zinc’s tendency to reduce the absorption of copper in the body. The activity of enzymes depends on copper for their biological function and although only a small amount of copper is necessary to have enzymes function properly, many men still do not meet their daily requirements.
Beta-Sitosterol Complex is beneficial for reducing BPH and promoting improved urinary health.
Saw Palmetto EXTRACT has been shown to reduce the symptoms of BPH by inhibiting the enzyme 5-reductase’s ability to convert testosterone into DHT. Saw Palmetto works best when in unison with other natural substances such as stinging nettle, pygeum, and zinc. Many believe that saw palmetto can help prevent prostate cancer since it slows down the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
MyND uses saw palmetto extract (a more effective form) instead of dried, powdered berries found in other supplements.
Pygeum Bark. WebMD states that Pygeum is used for treating symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH) and prostate cancer. It is also used for pain caused by inflammation, disease, urinary problems and to increase sexual desire.
Pygeum contains chemicals that help shrink the prostate to relieve urinary problems such as poor urine flow and nighttime urination in men with enlarged prostates.
Stinging Nettle Leaf Powder acts as a diuretic and provides relief for BPH. Nettle also blocks aromatase, the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. In one study of 287 men with BPH, taking stinging nettle root for 6 months helped improve their prostate condition.
Green Tea Leaf contains polyphenols to support prostate health.
Maitake, Reishi, Shitake Mushroom Powder:
Some research studies have shown that extracts of Asian mushrooms, as well as common mushrooms, fight against prostate cancer by triggering cell suicide. Extracts from reishi mushrooms demonstrated both anti-tumor and immune-stimulating properties in one study, while other research shows that shiitake and cordyceps mushrooms contain anticancer and immune-boosting compounds.
Tomato Fruit Powder (Lycopene) Some medical professionals believe Lycopene may help prevent BPH from worsening.
Broccoli 4:1 Extract All of the cruciferous vegetables contain cancer-fighting substances, but broccoli is especially rich in them. The anti-cancer compound helps eliminate carcinogenic chemicals from the body and focuses on cancer stem cells.
Graviola LEAF comes from an evergreen tree that is located in the rainforests of South America and is also known as soursop. Although all parts of it can be used for medicinal purposes, the leaves have the highest concentration of an anti-cancer ingredient. Studies on Graviola have been conducted for over 40 years and have shown that it may have the ability to destroy malignant cells. There are 12 different types of cancer that it can affect.
Red Raspberry Fruit Powder is a fruit that offers cellular protection for the prostate gland. A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that concentrated red raspberry extract stopped the proliferation of tumor cells in the prostate gland.
