Terra Nova Nettle Root, Lycopene & Zinc Complex 50 vegetarian capsules
Research has highlighted the potential value of nettle root in supporting prostate health. Although there are various reasons why nettle may benefit the prostate, some of the strongest evidence points to an inhibitory influence on excessive cellullar binding of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Nettle is also rich in various nutrients that are involved in healthy prostate function and hormonal balance.
Avena Sativa (Green Oat Seed)
Oat seeds (in their milk stage) have historically been regarded as one of the most valuable male health tonics. While a remarkably high content of zinc (which inhibits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone) undoubtely one of the reasons for the health benefits, milky oat seed also contains various phytonutrients which may support prostate and overall male health.
Pumpkin seeds have a high content of zinc, as well as being a good source of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide fatty acids which complement the role of zinc within healthy prostate tissue.
Prickly Pear Flower
Excessive activity of the enzymes 5-alpha reductase and aromatase is antagonistic to prostate health. Research suggesting an inhibitory effect on these enzymes has raised the profile of this cactus species in prostate support. Another valuable mechanism is thought to be the ability of this flower to inhibit lipid peroxidation.
Stabilised Rice Bran (SRB)
SRB is perhaps the most potent natural source of beta sitosterol, a plant sterol with scientifically proven prostate supportive properties.
In addition to its historical use as a tonic for urinary system health, parsley provides an abundance of protective flavonoid
