To understand how prostate supplements work, you must first understand why prostates get enlarged…
Prostates get enlarged because of exposure to a rogue form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone. Exposure to it causes prostate cells to grow. In both of these cell types, DHT binds to receptors which tell your prostate cells to grow. DHT is 10 times more potent than testosterone because it dissociates from the androgen receptor more slowly.
DHT is synthesized in the prostate from circulating testosterone by the action of the enzyme 5α-reductase, type 2. The most prescribed drug for enlarged prostates, finasteride (under the brand name Proscar), works by blocking the activity of 5α-reductase, type 2. Blocking that reduces DHT levels which can cause prostate enlargement if they are too high. Not only that but men taking finasteride were recently found to have 25% less chance of developing prostate cancers.
So what exactly does DrFormulas® Prostate Support do?
DrFormulas® Prostate Support does 3 things for you and your prostate.
1. Help Balance DHT Levels
DrFormulas® Prostate Support has ingredients to help balance DHT levels. The science is there- study after
study has concluded that saw palmetto, beta-sitosterol, pygeum, stinging nettles, and pumpkin seed promote healthy DHT levels on their own. We’ve combined these ingredients to give you maximum results. We’ve gone even further than what published studies typically use. Learn more at our ingredients page.
2. Provide Essential Prostate Nutrients
Like all organs, the prostate needs specific nutrients in order to thrive and function normally. Prostanew™ has ingredients to provide your prostate with those essential nutrients like zinc, selenium, iodine, and vitamin E.
3. Reduce Damage-Causing Inflammation
DrFormulas® Prostate Support helps reduce inflammation with anti-oxidants. Inflammation is a swelling and irritation of any kind of bodily tissue. Like inflammation from an allergic reaction, inflammation can actually cause more damage than what causes the inflammation in the first place! DrFormulas® Prostate Support contains anti-oxidants like pumpkin seed oil, lycopene, and stinging nettles which may help reduce inflammation.
