Prosta Glan®, one of our best selling products, is a unique formulation combining the best of botanicals and glandulars for the support of healthy prostate glands in men.‡
Saw palmetto is a plant, Serenoa ripens, whose ripe berry has been used for decades as a nutritional supplement in support of a healthy prostate and urinary tract in men. Several studies have shown that the extract of the saw palmetto berry supports healthy urinary flow.‡
Beta sitosterol is also known as plant sterol and phytosterol. Plant sterols have a similar structure to cholesterol, and have been studied to have a supporting effect for healthy prostate glands. In clinical studies, betasitosterol has been shown to improve urinary symptoms and flow.‡
Stinging nettle root extract (Urtica dioica), pumpkin seed extract, Uva Ursi leaf and flower pollen extracts have also been shown to have beneficial, supporting effects on the prostate.‡
Flower pollen extract contains a highly concentrated combination of water soluble to fat soluble flower pollen extracts (the allergenic outer husk is removed) from rye. The fat-soluble constituents of this extract promote healthy leukotriene and prostaglandin production. First developed in Sweden and used for over forty years in numerous countries.‡
