The prostate is a male reproductive gland approximately the size of a walnut it is part of the urethra and is located just below the urinary bladder. The prostate gland secretes a milky fluid which is a chief component of sperm it also controls the release of urine from the bladder. It is the most common site of health complaints in the urinary system, the most frequent prostate disorders are Prostatitis, Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) or enlarged, inflamed prostate and Prostate Cancer. The prostate gland develops mostly during puberty and remains it size until approximately age 40 when it begins to increase – “hypertrophy” and in some men it won’t stop growing. + Read more >
This condition is referred to as “Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy” it occurs most frequently in males between the ages of 40-50 years. Faulty dietary habits – diet high in fat and alcohol and exposure to endogenic (internal) and exogenous (external) toxins which boost the activity of 5 alpha reductase which is an enzyme that is involved in steroid metabolism. Other factors include zinc deficiency (needed for testosterone production) and low intake of Essential Fatty Acids, especially Omega 3 EFA’s and hormonal changes or imbalances. BPH can make urination problematic and it increases the risk of developing bladder infections and kidney damage. Other common symptoms associated with BPH include frequent urination, pain and burning sensation during urination and experiencing problems in starting or stopping urination. Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland and can strike men at all ages. This condition is usually caused by a bacterial infection of the urinary tract or from other areas of the body that permitted bacteria to invade and infect the prostate tissue. Hormonal changes may contribute to an inflamed prostate as well. Most common clinical symptoms are fever, chills, abdominal pain and pain and burning during urination. Prostate Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among males and is mainly a disorder associated with aging. It is believed that a high-fat-diet which boosts testosterone levels and subsequently promote enlargement of the prostate and exposure to environmental pollutants play a critical role in the development of prostate cancer. It appears that heritage might play a role in the development of prostate cancer as well. Statistics show that males of African-American decent have the highest rate of prostate cancer whereas men of Asian-American decent experience the lowest occurrence of this disease. Clinical signs you should watch out for include blood in the urine, painful urination and discomfort in the lower back, pelvis and upper thighs region.

Nearly every man over the age of 45 has some enlargement of the prostate gland, the small male sex glands that encircle the urethra. Enlargement and inflammation of the prostate can hinder urine flow and affect sexual function. Frequent nighttime urination, pain, burning and difficulty with urination are all symptoms of BPH. Conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone is a chemical reaction that contributes to prostate enlargement and its symptoms. Saw palmetto extract may inhibit this chemical reaction. Although primarily used for prostate problems in men, this extract may also benefit women who have conditions caused by excess androgen, such as hirsutism (excess facial hair) and polycystic ovarian disease.

Mixed E 400 IU is mainly d-alpha tocopherol but retains a natural balance of d-beta, d-delta and d-gamma tocopherols naturally found in vegetable oils. This natural form of vitamin E has been extracted by cold pressing methods that do not damage the tocopherols. No chemical solvents are used. Natural source vitamin E, designated by the prefix D, (d-alpha tocopherol), is twice as bioavailable as synthetic vitamin E, designated by the prefix DL (dl-alpha tocopherol). Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin and a powerful antioxidant, protecting cell membranes from pollution, toxins and free radicals. Vitamin E is the major antioxidant in lipid body tissues and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation, particularly in tissues that contain high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids like the brain and central nervous system. As an antioxidant, vitamin E may help protect against cardiovascular disease, some cancers, cataracts, premature aging and other chronic degenerative diseases. It also protects other vitamins (such as vitamins A and C) from oxidation. Vitamin E's ability to protect cell membranes makes it valuable for people in polluted environments and those with active lifestyles, as physical exertion increases production of free radicals. Approximately 400 IU of vitamin E reduces exercise-induced free radical damage and helps with athletic performance. Experts agree that obtaining adequate vitamin E from the daily diet is difficult and therefore recommend daily supplementation. Men and women who supplement with at least 100 IU of vitamin E per day have a 37-41% drop in the risk of heart disease. CHAOS (Cambridge Heart Antioxidant Study) reported a 77% drop in non-fatal heart attacks when people were given 400-800 IU of vitamin E per day. This form of vitamin E may be used topically on the skin. It is reported to help eliminate scarring after skin injury and sunburn. Simply cut the capsule and squeeze contents onto skin.$9.98
