More and more men, especially those over the age of 45, are seeking natural solutions to support prostate health. In fact, one in six men in the United States will face a serious prostate condition at some point in their lives. Promoting and preserving prostate health is no small feat, but thankfully there are a growing number of scientifically substantiated options available to help men support their prostate health — without a multitude of side effects.*
These approaches don’t have to be complicated either. For example, published research shows that simply walking regularly can greatly benefit prostate health. Exercise has long been shown to promote good health in a number of areas, especially since it boosts the immune system and strengthens circulation. But this study in particular showed that walking at a brisk or vigorous pace inhibited unhealthy prostate conditions by up to 61%!
The experiment studied 1,455 men with prostate conditions. Researchers found that men who walked briskly for 3 hours per week or more had a 57% lower rate of condition progression than men who walked at a leisurely pace for less than three hours a week. They also found that men who exercised more vigorously experienced a 61% decrease in death from an abnormal prostate condition. As many studies continue to show, simply moving the body enough to get your heart rate up, is highly beneficial and may help reduce the risks of countless chronic conditions.
When we exercise, even for a short time, the movement triggers a cascade of positive reactions within the body. But the benefits of exercise aren’t just physical – they’re also mental, emotional, and even spiritual. Mind-body exercises, such as yoga or ta-chi, can help relieve stress, anxiety, and occasional depression associated with illness — as well as providing a good workout!
Targeted Ingredients for Prostate Health
Nature offers us not only sustenance and nourishment, but also provides a wealth of powerful compounds that actively promote health. Today, more doctors are recommending plant based compounds such as specific antioxidants and polyphenols found in certain botanicals and herbs, that can help support prostate health through a variety of mechanisms.
ProstaCaid® is a scientifically researched formula containing 33 targeted ingredients that work synergistically to promote prostate health from multiple angles. With botanically-cultivated medicinal mushrooms, antioxidants, herbal extracts and other ingredients drawn from traditional Asian herbalism and western naturopathic approaches, ProstaCaid® has been shown in multiple studies to support prostate cellular health and overall prostate function, safely and naturally. Key extracts in ProstaCaid® include a highly bio-available form of turmeric root, saw palmetto berry, grape skin, pomegranate, pumpkin seed, pygeum bark, sarsaparilla root, green tea, Japanese knotweed, and stinging nettle.*
It also includes 3,3′- diindolylmethane (DIM). DIM is a biologically active ingredient derived from cruciferous vegetables, that demonstrates significant benefits for cellular health and hormone balance. DIM promotes the excretion of both excess estrogen and xenoestrogens (potent estrogen-like compounds which are of special concern in prostate health). ProstaCaid® is also enriched with antioxidants and nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin D3, selenium, and natural polyphenols including quercetin, resveratrol, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) from green tea, and ellagic acid from pomegranate.*
ProstaCaid® has been shown in multiple peer-reviewed studies to offer targeted support for prostate cellular health and overall prostate function, including synergistic benefits when used in combination with PectaSol-C® Modified Citrus Pectin. For men seeking active support, ProstaCaid® is a highly effective yet gentle formula for promoting optimal prostate health, naturally.*
