This special combination of herbs and enzymes can effectively enhance the male reproductive system and provide prostate gland support for controlling
inflammation of the prostate by modulating the side effects of stress hormones and controlling
inflammatory processes. Interestingly enough, ProstateZyme can be equally beneficial to women who suffer from menstrual cramps or menopausal imbalances.
The enzymes used in this formula a pure, plantsource enzymes of the highest quality.
The herbs chosen are specifically chosen for their proven efficacy in supporting healthy prostate gland functions.
Flaxseed is included in this
potent prostate gland supplmement due to it's anti-cancer benefits. With prostate
cancer effecting so many men today, a prostate formula without anti-cancer ingredients
is not as strong as it could be. Flaxseed contains several
lignans together with essential fatty acids and in addition to it's cancer fighting
qualities, it also has an anti-inflammatory action which helps to
control prostate problems, to lower cholesterol, and to prevent platelet
aggregation. In fact, as you'll read later on, about Fo-Ti, this formula
addresses more than just prostate gland function. Heart disease remains
a top killer in this country too, so the added benefits of some of these
ingredients make this formula stand out.
Palmetto is probably one of the best known herbs for supporting the prostate.
It is popular for a reason. Saw Palmetto valuable in feeding the reproductive organs, ovaries, prostate
and testes. Recent studies have shown that saw palmetto can help control
BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) and frequent urination due to prostate
disorders. Other applications include the control of androgens in females, which
prevents hirsutism and polycystic ovarian disorders. Saw palmetto promotes the
overall health of the reproductive system.
Ginseng like most other herbs, has more than one application. It is included
in ProstateZyme because of it's positive effect on the nervous system. Siberian Ginseng
helps balance the blood pressure and blood sugar levels as well as protecting the nervous system
from stress. Ginseng has a reputation for energy but this particular ginseng is not as stimulating for most as American or Panax.
Siberian Ginseng helps mental, physical and metabolic processes to work with better efficiency.
In addition to the above functions, Siberian Ginseng has also been shown to increase gastrointestinal
movement and tone and increase iron metabolism.
Root is included in the formulation in order to help control any
inflammation of the prostate and the other organs. Additionally, since it
modulates estrogen action, it consequentially improves symptoms of PMS, such as
depression, sugar cravings, water retention, and breast tenderness. Although
licorice acts as cortisol in controlling inflammation, it also minimizes the
side effects of excess cortisol. Other benefits of licorice include support of
the liver, soothing of GI tract ulcers, and alleviation of skin disorders,
cancer sores, and other viral-induced disorders.
Gingko Biloba (leaf) extract has only been in use since 1988. Scientific research shows it to
be another preventive medicine. It is able to work on the nerve centers, to
increase brain circulation, and to generally reactivate the well-being of the
body. Testing has shown Gingko to be a remarkable inhibitor of the lipid
peroxidation of membranes (membrane penetration), and it is widely used in
products to deliver oxygen to the brain via the blood system. Studies also show
it to be a longevity aid.
Pygeum (africanum) has been
used to support the prostate and to improve male fertility and virility. In some
studies, pygeum appears to be more effective than saw palmetto in controlling
prostate problems. However, pygeum and saw palmetto work together to provide
synergistic benefits to the reproductive organs.
Why did Enzyme Essentials include Ho-Shou-Wu (FO-TI) in this prostate gland supplement? One reason is that Ho-Shou-Wu, also known as Fo-Ti, has a rejuvenating
effect on the endocrine glands. When the endocrines are rejuvenated, the body is strengthened. Ho-Shou-Wu is also a tonic and a
nutrient herb as well as an excellent digestive supplement. Fo-Ti is regularly given as a tonic, particularly to the elderly, in China.
Fo-Ti is actually a pretty amazing little herb. In addition to the other benefits mentioned, research suggest that it's use can help lower choloesterol
levels, reduce high blood pressure and even reduce coronary heart disease for those
predisposed to that condition. And if that were not enough, Fo-Ti is helpful for liver
and spleen weakness.
