How it works
Research has discovered how these herbal extracts work in the body to safely support the prostate. As men age, testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a potent hormone that stimulates prostate cells and causes them to multiply, which gradually enlarges the prostate gland. Saw palmetto berry extract works by reducing the amount of an enzyme (5-a-reductase) that converts testosterone to DHT, thereby interrupting prostate growth.
Pygeum contains phytosterols that inhibit the production of certain prostaglandins that cause the inflammation associated with prostatitis. It also contains terpenoids that stimulate diuretic action, and compounds that reduce the accumulation of cholesterol by-products in the prostate.
Pumpkin seed oil is rich in zinc, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that cause the production of a different type of prostaglandin that reduces inflammation.
