provide high capacity support for prostate and urinary
function as well prostate cell health.*
Uses For SP Ultimate
Prostate Function: Saw palmetto, pygeum and beta
sitosterol offer support for healthy urinary function, in part
by maintaining healthy hormone metabolism and enzyme
activities. A meta-analysis involving 18 randomized
controlled trials and almost 3,000 men indicated that saw
palmetto provided positive support for urinary health. In
a related meta-analysis, pygeum demonstrated similar
support. A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled,
multicenter study with 200 male subjects revealed that
beta-sitosterol also provides promising urinary function
Prostate Cell Health: Data from over 47,000 participants
in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study suggested
that tomato or lycopene intake was positively associated
with prostate cell health. Healthy plasma concentrations
of alpha-tocopherol, selenium and zinc have also been
associated with maintaining healthy prostate cell
metabolism. In one large cohort study involving 29,133
men, alpha-tocopherol supplementation provided healthy
cell support for the prostate. Vitamin D, curcumin and
green tea play key roles in prostate cell health, including
support for healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)
activity, cell receptor function and cell signaling.
Pomegranate and silymarin provide enhanced antioxidant
support and promote healthy prostate cell cycle
