Viazen Prostate presentation
Saw palmetto (Fruit) (Serenoa repens)
Extract 12 :1
Saw palmetto fruit provides polysaccharides, fixed oils, volatile oils, steroids including b-sitosterol. Saw palmetto reduces symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia by inhibiting the binding of dihydrotestosterone to androgen receptors and by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone by 5-a-reductase, a substance believed to be involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
It also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Stinging nettle (Root) (Urtica dioica)
Extract 10 :1
Blumenthal et al, Commission E, the World Health Organization and ESCOP recognize the use of nettle root for relieving urinary discomforts associated with the early stages of BPH.
Small-flower willowherb (Flower) (Epilobium parviflorum)
Extract 10 :1
Since the late 1970s and early 1980s, the medicinal use of aerial parts of Small-flowered willowherb has become very popular in folk medicine in several European countries for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia as well as prostate, bladder, and kidney disorders.
These terpenes, flavonoids, tannins and phytosterols that are responsible for the medicinal properties of this plant.
Green tea (Leaf) (Camellia sinensis)
Extract 10 :1
Green tea is classically consumed as a beverage for its beneficial effects.
Their antioxidant properties ensure a reduction in cell damage caused by free radicals.
Turmeric (Root) (Curcuma longa)
Curcuminoids are responsible for the anti-inflammatory action of turmeric.
Curcuminoids also offer an antioxidant and protective effect to cellular components, by scavenging free radicals.
Cranberry (Fruit) (Vaccinium macrocarpon)
Cranberry extract contains several families of phytonutrients (resveratrol, flavonoids) which give it significant antioxidant activity.
In addition to their antioxidant properties, proanthocyanidins are thought to be able to bind to certain bacteria, including Escherichia coli, responsible for cystitis and prevent them from adhering to bladder cells and causing infection.
This medicinal property is very important in the presence of BPH because reduced urine flow and difficulty in completely emptying the bladder can provide a favorable environment for the proliferation of bacteria and the development of bladder infections caused by the presence of stagnant urine.
Broccoli (Herb top) (Brassica oleracea italica)
|The flowering tops of broccoli enrich the formula with the presence of lutein and zeaxanthin, two important antioxidants from the carotenoid family.|
|Selenium provides an antioxidant effect, as it acts as a cofactor for the activation of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase.|
Zinc (Zinc citrate)
|There is a high level of zinc in the prostate. Within the prostate, it acts as an inhibitory cofactor of the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, thereby preventing the synthesis of the dihydrotestosterone hormone, responsible for the development of BPH. In addition, it contributes to the healing of tissues damaged by inflammation|
|Black pepper extract||Black pepper extract, added as a non-medicinal ingredients, helps improve absorption of curcumin.|
Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate, gelatine (bovine origin)
