Dietary supplementation with THE PROSTATE FORMULA is recommended for healthy adult males concerned about maintaining a healthy prostate and healthy urogenital functioning. Prior to beginning supplementation, a physician must determine that dietary supplementation, alone or as an adjunct to medical treatment, is needed for healthy prostate and urogenital functioning.* THE PROSTATE FORMULA is intended to support prostate health in aging adult males and is to be used as a part of a healthy life style, including proper diet and exercise. Scientific studies have demonstrated the ingredients in THE PROSTATE FORMULA benefit maintenance of a healthy prostate and proper urogenital functioning.
These ingredients provide prostate-specific nutrients and help maintain proper cell growth in the periurethral region of the prostate gland, contributing to free urine flow.* As men age, the estrogen/androgen ratio increases, which may impact quality of life. Although the mechanisms behind the changes observed in the biochemistry of the prostate gland remain poorly understood, numerous studies indicate that one fundamental enzymatic conversion may contribute to morphological changes in the prostate gland. This reaction is the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is catalyzed by 5-alpha-reductase. Testosterone is secreted by the Leydig cells in the testes. It then crosses the plasma membrane of stromal cells in the prostate gland. 5-alpha-reductase, located in the nuclear membrane of the stromal cells, reduces testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. This potent androgen induces mRNA transcription for cytokines such as fibroblast growth factor and transforming growth factor beta. An autocrine effect then causes stromal cells to grow, and a paracrine effect causes prostatic epithelial tissues to grow. Estrogen also contributes to the population of DHT receptors in the stromal cell nuclei. These changes can be balanced by governing the activity of 5-alpha-reductase.* THE PROSTATE FORMULA contains ingredients scientifically shown to keep 5-alpha-reductase in balance.*
