How ProGuard works?
Prostate enlargement or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) usually begins after the age of 40. Symptoms include frequent urination (particularly at night), hesitancy and impairment of urinary stream.
BPH is caused by a male sex hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). As men get older, DHT gradually accumulate in the prostate gland causing it to slowly enlarge. As the gland grows, it presses the urethra – causing urination and sexual problems.
Results of clinical trials indicate that Saw Palmetto can assist in the relief of symptoms of BPH. Saw Palmetto works by blocking formation of DHT in the prostate. It has been shown to improve residual urine volume and urinary tract symptoms, such as night time urination and poor urine flow. Saw palmetto does not artificially lower PSA levels; hence it is unlikely to mask the presence of prostate cancer. Saw Palmetto is also effective for male-pattern hair loss, a condition caused by DHT accumulation in the scalp.
ProGuard also contains pumpkin seed oil which is a rich source of fatty acids and zinc. A normal human prostate has the highest level of zinc of any soft tissue in the body. Hence, pumpkin seed helps promote normal prostatic function and can also improve the function of the bladder and urethra.
