PROSTATE SPECIFIC ADVANTAGE

Tags:

Attention all men over 40 and those that spend a lot of time in lycra! Too cycle!!! The area that you place on your saddle is rather sensitive, and due to pressure and the increase in temperature, it is important to look after your prostate gland. Besides cyclists, the men over 40 need to consider the effect of ageing and a slow natural reduction in hormone and enzyme production. Poor diet, lack of exercise, drug and alcohol abuse, and smoking, can all lead to the unfortunate result of a few conditions such as frequent urination, disrupted sleep and erectile dysfunction. As a man ages it's common for the prostate gland to become enlarged, with cyclists being especially at risk. If you're over 40 years old, or if you cycle regularly, PSA Caps is a must-have supplement for you.

Prostate Specific Advantage will provide premium prostate protection. The various ingredients will promote optimal prostate health, reduce frequent urination and provides potent antioxidant support.

The PSA Formula

  • Beta Sitosterol- This plant sterol helps reduce the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone(DHT). Beta sitosterol has been demonstrated to improve urine flow velocity in men with enlarged prostate, while also providing anti-inflammatory effects in prostate tissue, which helps reduce an enlarged prostate.
  • Saw Palmetto Extract (Seronoa repens)- The extract from this plant is a frequently used herbal treatment for enhancing prostate health and reducing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Saw Palmetto also reduces epidermal growth factor (EGF).
  • Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica Root Extract 4:1)- The active ingredient in this herb-like shrub inhibits the ability of epidermal growth factor (EGF) to bind to its receptors in the prostate and to subsequently stimulate the growth of prostate tissue.
  • Epilobium (small flower willow)- Epilobium contains two polyphenols which inhibit the 5-alpha reductase enzyme conversion of testosterone to DHT. Epilobium also inhibits aromatase from converting testosterone to estrogens, which happens in older males as they age, helping to reduced harmful DHT, estradiol, and estrone levels, which are known to contribute to prostate-related disorders. Epilobium also inhibits undesirable pro-inflammatory effects.
  • Lycopene- This member of the carotenoid family (it produces the red/reddish colour in tomatoes, watermelon, pink grapefruit, guava & papaya) is a powerful antioxidant that protects the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) content of lymphocytes (cells found in the blood, lymph, and lymphoid tissues) from oxidative damage. Research reports that endurance cyclists suffer from prostate disorders, erectile dysfunction, reduced sperm motility, and reduced sperm counts.
  • Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine- These amino acids, when taken for 14 days or more, minimized the symptoms of enlarged prostate. In order to positively affect/influence several hormonal pathways involving prostate health, these particular amino acids should be consumed 60+ minutes before other amino acids (or protein-containing foods) are consumed.

 

The benefits are clear! Please remember to have your prostate checked by doctor. If you are routinely waking up at night for a toilet visit, it might be time to add PSA to your supplement regime.
