Item Catalog Number: 01898

Ultra Natural Prostate formula includes the most scientifically substantiated nutrients to help protect the prostate gland and maintain its healthy function. Here are the eleven ingredients in Ultra Natural Prostate:

  • Standardized lignans from flax seed and Norway spruce knotwood convert to enterolactonein the intestine, which is then absorbed into the bloodstream to provide support for prostate cells against excess estrogen levels.1-3 Testosterone often converts to estrogen at higher rates as men age—and prostate cells are sensitive to estrogen's growth stimulatory effects.4,5
  • AprèsFlex®, an extract of Boswellia, supports normal inhibition of 5-lipoxygenaseor 5-LOX, an enzyme that is associated with undesirable cell division changes.6,7 AprèsFlex® absorbs into the blood nearly 52% better than standard Boswellia, for superior effectiveness.8
  • Nettle root extract helps support prostate cells against excess estrogen levels by mitigating the activity of the aromatase enzyme needed to create estrogens.9,10
  • Saw palmetto extract helps inhibit dihydrotestosterone (DHT) activity in the prostate, helps inhibit alpha-adrenergic receptor activity (to support normal urinary flow), and helps regulate inflammatory reactions in the prostate.11-14
  • Pygeum (Pygeum africanum) extract helps suppress prostaglandin production in the prostate and supports healthy urination patterns.18,19
  • Pumpkin seed supercritical CO2 oil, from select pumpkins, enhances the composition of free fatty acids and augments saw palmetto's benefits.15-17
  • Beta-sitosterol is a biologically active constituent of pygeum and saw palmetto20 that enhances pygeum's protective effects and helps improve quality of life.21,22
  • Graminex® Flower Pollen Extract™, a European pollen extract has been shown to help relax the smooth muscles of the urethra and help regulate inflammatory reactions.23-25
  • Boron has been shown to slow elevation of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), seemingly a result of this mineral's positive effect on the body's regulation of protein-degrading enzymes.26-28
  • Lycopene, a carotenoid associated with the tomato's red color, supports efficient cellular communication, helps maintain healthy DNA, regulates hormonal metabolism, and promotes healthy prostate size and structure.29-35
  • Phospholipids enhance the absorption of active compounds.
