MAGNIFOOD PROSTATE SUPPORT
The prostate is a male urinary and reproductive accessory gland; it’s about the size of a walnut and is located at the base of the bladder, in front of the rectum. It helps maintain the health of the lower urinary tract and supports male reproductive function. As the gland surrounds the urethra that drains the bladder, prostate disorders can often affect urination. The three most common disorders of the prostate are: an inflammatory infection called prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is a non-cancerous enlargement and cancer, the most frequent male malignancy.
The prostate gland’s health is closely linked to the production and efficient use of testosterone and other related hormones. Testosterone production often lowers as men age. With this decrease in testosterone, dietary factors and lifestyle, prostate health can be influenced significantly. Prostate health is a concern for every man; Prostate Support Complex can help to maintain a virile, healthy prostate.
The prostate needs 10 times more zinc than any other organ in the body. It is required for normal testosterone and sperm production. Prostate Support Complex provides Zinc as bisglycinate, an easily absorbed chelated zinc. By altering steroid hormone metabolism, zinc supplementation may reduce prostate enlargement.
Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant which is involved in the red colour of tomatoes, watermelons, guavas and pink grapefruits. Emerging research suggests that lycopene may help to prevent prostate cancer and may reduce existing tumor size.
Selenium is essential for prostate health, a powerful defense against cell damage. Increasing its intake has been shown to reduce prostate-cancer risk.
MAGNIFOOD Enhanced Nutrition
In order to get the most out of nutritional supplementation it's necessary to achieve an intense state of synergy in the body. Synergy occurs when an interaction between compounds produces effects that are greater than the combined individual effects of each one. To provide its optimum effect, each vitamin, mineral or any other nutrient must be efficiently absorbed, distributed, metabolised and utilised, and must participate in a wide array of synergistic interactions with enzymes, co-factors, other nutrients. So it's the environment in the body which dictates how beneficial a supplement will be.
Magnifood is a complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods. The ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body's biochemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product's vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used in Magnifood are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant's enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant's original fresh chemistry (as it was when the plant was harvested). The biochemical profile of a fresh freeze dried plant very closely resembles the profile of the original fresh plant, but in a much greater concentration, due to the removal of the plant's moisture content.
While Magnifood is a scientifically advanced innovation, its origins are deeply rooted in holistic principles. Within each Magnifood complex, the marriage between science and holism produces remarkable effects - effects which are powerfully active, delicately balanced and intensely, profoundly synergistic.
MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX providing:
Nettle Root - Research has highlighted the potential value of nettle root in supporting prostate health. Although there are various reasons why nettle may benefit the prostate, some of the strongest evidence points to an inhibitory influence on excessive cellullar binding of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Nettle is also rich in various nutrients that are involved in healthy prostate function and hormonal balance.
Avena Sativa (Green Oat Seed) - Oat seeds (in their milk stage) have historically been regarded as one of the most valuable male health tonics. While a remarkably high content of zinc (which inhibits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone) undoubtely one of the reasons for the health benefits, milky oat seed also contains various phytonutrients which may support prostate and overall male health.
Pumpkin Seed - Pumpkin seeds have a high content of zinc, as well as being a good source of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide fatty acids which complement the role of zinc within healthy prostate tissue.
Prickly Pear Flower - Excessive activity of the enzymes 5-alpha reductase and aromatase is antagonistic to prostate health. Research suggesting an inhibitory effect on these enzymes has raised the profile of this cactus species in prostate support. Another valuable mechanism is thought to be the ability of this flower to inhibit lipid peroxidation.
Stabilised Rice Bran (SRB) - SRB is perhaps the most potent natural source of beta sitosterol, a plant sterol with scientifically proven prostate supportive properties.
Parsley Leaf - In addition to its historical use as a tonic for urinary system health, parsley provides an abundance of protective flavonoids - especially apigenin, which has been the subject of much scientific interest, with regards to its potential role in prostate health.
Cornsilk - Like parsley, cornsilk has been used historically to maintain the health of the urinary tract. Although much of this is associated with the content of maizenic acid, there are various other constituents that may be supportive as well.
Acai Berry - Acai berries provide a good source of various micronutrients that may help maintain healthy prostate function, such as zinc and vitamin E. However, an even greater focus on acai regarding prostate health, is associated with the remarkably high concentration of plant sterols and the wide range of antioxidant flavonoids and carotenoids.
Watercress - The glucosinolate compounds in watercress have drawn a great deal of scientific attention, with regards to prostate health. This under-rated superfood is also abundant in powerful and protective antioxidant flavonoids and carotenoids.
Sea Buckthorn Berry & Leaf - Numerous constituents within sea buckthorn possess research-proven properties that are relevant to maintaining healthy prostate function. The carotenoid lycopene, several types of antioxidant flavonoids, omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins C and E are the most notable examples.
