Super Prostate Formula is a prostate supplement that allegedly helps maintain the health and function of the prostate gland and urinary tract. It contains beta sitosterol which some studies have shown to help reduce blood levels of cholesterol. Many herbal therapists also use it to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) or enlarged prostate. Beta sitosterol can also be found in Saw Palmetto, pecans, cashew, rice bran, avocados and soybeans.
Super Prostate Formula also contains Saw Palmetto which some studies have shown “mild to moderate improvement in urinary symptoms and flow measures”. Other studies have not shown similar results.
Lycopene is another ingredient in Super Prostate Formula. Lycopene is found in tomatoes, watermelons and guavas. While some studies have shown that Lycopene does have some benefit to health the FDA has limited the “claims” to the following statement:
Very limited and preliminary scientific research suggests that eating one-half to one cup of tomatoes and/or tomato sauce a week may reduce the risk of prostate cancer. FDA concludes that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim.
The other ingredients included in Super Prostate Formula are listed below. The formula for Super Prostate Formula was recently changed and the amount of beta sitosterol was increased by 58% and Saw Palmetto increased by 125%. They also increased the amounts of Lycopene and Bioperine.
Super Prostate Formula claims that 288 mg of free fatty acids are the most beneficial for prostate health so their formula contains exactly that amount as well as 500 mg of beta-sitosterol. The formula also includes other popular herbal remedies such as pygeum, pumpkin seed and stinging nettle.
