Prostate Plus (90 softgels)
The prostate is a small, walnut sized gland that aids in male reproductive processes, located just below the bladder. The prostate surrounds the urethra, the canal which leads from the bladder through the penis from which urine is emptied.
It is vital for men today to take care of the health of their prostate. The American Cancer Society (ACS) says that prostate cancer is the second most prevalent cancer among American men. Each year thousands of American men have their prostates surgically removed or burned with radiation, resulting in reduced quality of life, often including impotence and incontinences. Most men over 40 already show enlargement of the prostate gland, a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BHP). Common symptoms may include:
Weak, decreased urinary flow,
Sense of urgent urination,
Leaking or dribbling,
Increased urination particularly at night,
The standard treatment has generally been via pharmaceutical drugs to stop the prostate gland from enlarging and reduce the restriction of the urethra. More serious cases may require surgery to remove the enlarged portion of the prostate gland.
Simply because the prostate will naturally enlarge as men age does not mean that most men will develop BHP or prostate cancer. With the advent of natural supplements designed to support prostate health and achieve the same effects as pharmaceuticals for the treatment of “BPH, natural supplements may be effective alternatives to clinical drugs, with all their unwanted side effects. As with any health problem the best cure is prevention. Prostate Plus from Hawaii’s House of Gold supplies men with this support. Prostate Plus is a synergistic formulation of the most potent and effective standardized herbs.
Saw Palmetto – Reduces DHT* production and helps reduce prostate size and pain.
Zinc – Proven to reduce prostate size: zinc deficiency plays a critical role in prostate enlargement.
Pygeum Africanum Bark Extract - Reduces nocturnal urination
Pumpkin seed oil - Pumpkin seeds have substance called amino acid cucubitacins that prevent testosterone from transforming into DHT, inhibiting the ability of prostate cancer cells to develop, and also contain zinc.
Stinging Nettle Root Extract - Believed to contain chemicals that act to reduce prostate size.
Lycopene – Contains powerful antioxidants scientifically found to decrease risk of prostate cancer and shrink existing tumors.
Vitamin B-6 - Vitamin B-6, along with zinc, also has the ability to reduce prolactin levels in men. Prolactin is one of a handful of hormones that cause an increase in dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which leads to an overproduction of prostate cells, causing enlargement.
We heartily recommend that all men over the age of 30 begin taking 1 to 3 softgels daily with meals.
*DHT is Dihydrotestosterone, a form of testosterone converted by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase to stimulate prostate growth.
