Description: Protects and improves symptoms of enlarged prostate. The only formulation that combines all natural extracts at the correct doses, proven to provide maximum protection for the prostate. I3C, DIM and curcumin extract protect against and may retard the growth of tumour prostate cell mutations. Beta-sitosterol improves urinary symptoms such as urinary output and bladder emptying. It also inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, thereby preventing the formation of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a known risk factor for prostate cell mutation and growth. Pygeum africanum extract prevents prostate inflammation, cell proliferation and growth. Lycopene and selenium reduce the risk of prostate cell mutations.
Directions: For prostate protection and healthy prostate function, all men over 40 years of age should take 2 capsules daily. As part of treatment of a diagnosed prostate condition, two capsules twice daily can be used. Take with or shortly after meals. Contraindications: Do not exceed recommended dosages unless on the advice of a health care provider. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

Contraindications There are no known contraindications. Product Interactions Cytochrome P450 1A2: Indole-3-carbinol induces the metabolism of CYP1A2 substrates and thus lower serum concentrations. Medicines affected include clozapine, cyclobenzaprine, fluvoxamine, haloperidol, imipramine, mexiletine, olanzapine, pentazocine, propranolol, tacrine, theophylline, zileuton, zolmitriptan and others. Warfarin and anticoagulants: Concomitant use of warfarin might increase the risk of bleeding due to decreased platelet aggregation and should be avoided or carefully monitored. Some of these medicines include aspirin, clopidogrel, dalteparin, enoxaparin, heparin, ticlopidine, warfarin, and others. Ezetimibe: Ezetimibe inhibits intestinal absorption of beta-sitosterol and reduces plasma concentrations in individuals with and without sitosterolemia. In individuals with mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia, ezetimibe reduces beta-sitosterol levels by 41%. Barbiturates: Preliminary research suggests that selenium can inhibit the hepatic metabolism of barbiturates and thereby prolong the sedative effects of barbiturates in humans. Special Precautions Bile duct obstruction and gallstones: Curcumin can cause gallbladder contractions. Use with caution in individuals with gallstones or gallbladder disease. Surgery: Curcumin has anti-platelet effects and might cause excessive bleeding perioperatively. Individuals should discontinue this product at least 2 weeks before elective surgical procedures. Prostate Cancer: There is contradictory research regarding the use of lycopene in prostate cancer. With one study reporting that lycopene might worsen established prostate cancer by increasing metastasis without having any effect on cancer cell proliferation, while other studies have found it to be beneficial. Until more is known, use lycopene in men with established prostate cancer, with caution. Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Not to be used by women.
