A Doctor Formulated Prostate Formula with Therapeutic Doseages of:Saw Palmetto Fruit ExtractThe berries of saw palmetto, a palm-like plant, are known to have been used as a food and medicine by the Native Americans of the southeastern region on the United States. Saw palmetto has a history of being used to promote urinary tract health and to maintain libido. This whole-food extract contributes to balanced testosterone levels and regulates healthy inflammation of the prostate. It is theorized to reduce concentrations of an enzyme involved in prostate cell growth. As itself a potent source of beta-sitosterol, saw palmetto serves as a powerful addition to Dr. Colbert’s prostate formula. Beta-sitosterolBeta-sitosterol is a plant sourced fat, or phytosterol, that is known to encourage healthy prostate aging. The potent prostate protective properties of beta-sitosterol are thought to come from inhibition of an enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT stimulates the division of prostate cells increasing their number and leading to an enlarged prostate.Found notably in foods such such as saw-palmetto berries, pumpkin seeds, nuts, avocados, and chocolate, beta-sitosterol is abundant in the plant kingdom. Unfortunately, it is difficult to achieve therapeutic dosages through diet alone. That is why Dr. Colbert has made it available in this convenient prostate formula enhanced with a myriad of synergistic compounds, vitamins, and nutrients.Pumpkin Seed ExtractPumpkins are native to North America and were a staple crop for the indigenous people. The seeds of pumpkin contain a vast suite of fatty acids in a unique proportion that promotes healthy levels of inflammation in the body. Pumpkin seeds are loaded with fat-soluble vitamins and trace minerals that are important for prostate health. This potent 4:1 extract also contributes an additional dose of the prostate protecting agent beta-sitosterol, making this a crucial component of the Ultimate Prostate Formula. GraminexGraminex is a non-solvent flower pollen extract consisting primarily of rye grass pollen. Pollen is known to hold a wide variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, RNA, DNA building factors, plant hormones, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids, prostaglandin precursors, phytosterols and more.The unique blend of lipid-soluble and water-soluble fractions in pollen exhibit antioxidant properties. Graminex may also support healthy muscle contraction of the bladder and relax the urethral smooth muscle, which can help support a healthy prostate size.Boswellia ExtractBoswellia serrata, also known as indian frankincense, has been used by herbalists for thousands of years. Extracted from the gum resin of the boswellia tree, this ancient herb acts to block a damaging proinflammatory enzyme called 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) that could contribute to inflammatory conditions in the prostate. LycopeneLycopene is a plant compound that is notably responsible for for the bright red color of tomatoes. Found in many plants, lycopene is in a class of phytochemicals called carotenoids. Carotenoids are yellow, orange, or red fat-soluble pigments that often have antioxidant effects. Antioxidants work by neutralizing free-radicals and preventing cellular degeneration. Research suggests that lycopene may be the most potent antioxidant of all the carotenoids. Thus, lycopene helps modulate oxidative damage in prostate cells. Lycopene has also been shown in studies to regulate prostate tumor growth and support the activity of cancer-metabolizing enzymes.This antioxidant is not produced by the human body and therefore must be obtained from sources such as food and supplements. Divine Health’s Ultimate Prostate Formula has been enhanced with therapeutic levels of lycopene for powerful prostate protection. Boron, Selenium, ZincThese vital trace minerals have been included to round out the suite of super nutrients in the Ultimate Prostate Formula. Involved in cell metabolism and growth, these minerals are powerful allies in maintaining proper prostate function in aging men. Due to depleted agricultural soil, achieving adequate amounts of trace minerals through diet alone has become much more difficult. This is why Dr. Colbert has included these valuable ingredients in his prostate formula.
