Solgar Gold Specifics Prostate Support is part of the Solgar Gold Specifics premium range of natural formulas created for the support of specific functions in the body based on nutritional science.
Solgar Gold Specifics Prostate Support contains a wide range of ingredients such as pectin, nettle leaf, saw palmetto berry, lycopene, pumpkin, soy germ, selenium and zinc.
Selenium is a key mineral which can naturally be found in the soil. It is a vital mineral as it supports the immune system and protects the cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, similar as to Lycopene. It also contributes to normal spermatogenesis.
Zinc is a vital nutrient for many functions in the body. It promotes healthy skin, hair and nails and supports normal taste and vision and exerts antioxidant activity, protecting against oxidative stress and can support a healthy immune system. It also has properties that are useful for male health including contributing to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. Pectin is a carbohydrate extracted from fruits, vegetables and seeds. It is a food stabilizer or thickening agent. Citrus fruits contain the largest amount of this natural fibre.
Nettle leaf extract is derived from stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), a flowering plant growing all over the world, originating from Europe and Asia. It is best known for the stinging reaction that follows when skin comes into contact with the stinging hairs on its leaves and stems. For centuries this plant has been used medicinally, with most products made from the stems and leaves.
Pumpkin seeds have been used for centuries by Native Americans before spreading to Europe.
Soy Germ comes from soybeans. It has been used for many different purposes as it contains isoflavones.
Saw palmetto is a fan palm native to the West Indies and the Southeast coast of the United States, as it mainly grows in warm climates. It grows as a tree with deep purple berries. The benefits of the extract taken from the berries have been used for centuries in traditional and alternative medicine as its ingredients include fatty acids, plant sterols and flavonoids. Saw palmetto is a rich source of phytochemicals.
Lycopene is a bright red carotene and can be found in most red fruits and vegetables.
Solgar Gold Specifics Prostate Support is to be taken as 2 vegetable capsules daily. A special powdered blend of beta-carotene and ascorbic acid (PhytO2X) has been added to this formula to maintain the freshness of the ingredients.
