Prostate supplement for treatment of enlarged prostate gland, prostatitis (BPH)
The most effective and best selling original Prostamax prostate supplement in the UK. Our Prostamax contains high grade beta sitosterol. This is the common active ingredient found in small amounts in saw palmetto, pumpkin seeds and other plants previously used to treat prostate conditions. Only our Prostamax contains high grade pure beta sitosterol and selected other plant sterols, shown to have the optimum effect on an enlarged prostate gland. This is what makes our Prostamax unique.
We have improved our Prostamax formula which now contains additional plant sterols that have been shown to offer an enhanced synergistic effect on the prostate gland when blended with beta sitosterol. Our regular customers will note that the capsule is now slightly larger. This is necessary to accommodate the new formula.
If you are a man over 40 years old you may well have an enlarged prostate gland, known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. By the time you are 60 the probability of this is over 50%.
Beta sitosterol combined with selected other plant sterols has been shown by various studies to be an effective agent in the relief and prevention of problems caused by an enlarged prostate gland when taken on a regular basis. Prostamax also contains other additional compounds known to help maintain a healthy prostate gland. Prostamax has been available in the UK and Europe through Medifort for 16 years. Our Prostamax is a tried and proven formula manufactured in the UK.
The prostate is a small gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra in men. Its major function is to contribute to seminal fluid.
If the prostate enlarges, pressure may be put on the urethra, acting like a partial clamp and causing a variety of urinary problems including:
- Difficulty urinating
- Dribbling after urination
- Need to urinate often, especially at night
- In rare cases, the patient is not able to urinate
- Reduced sexual function or impotence
This condition is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH):
- 1 in 9 men over 40 years old have BPH
- Over half of all 60 year old men have BPH
- BPH is not prostate cancer but the symptoms are similar and it can be a precursor to cancer
Tests have also shown that beta sitosterol may also inhibit the development of cancer tumours (click here) and absorption of cholesterol.
Other companies have followed our lead and now sell similar sounding supplements. However, we have not tested these and are not able to verify their efficacy.
Herbal extracts are sold in Germany and France by prescription only under the names Harzal and Permixon. In the UK ProstaBrit, Prostanol and others are available. These all contain only a fraction of the beta sitosterol contained in a single caplet of Prostamax.
There are 60 capsules in each bottle of Prostamax. Each Prostamax capsule contains 340mg of pure high grade beta sitosterol plus mixed sterols from plant sources. This has been shown to be more effective than beta sitosterol alone. The capsules also contain 10mg zinc, 25mg isoflavines and 35mcg selenium; other compounds known to help an enlarged prostate gland.
Dosage is 1 or 2 capsules per day depending on symptoms. Some customers start on 2 capsules per day and find they can reduce this to 1 per day as a preventative maintenance dose once the symptoms improve. Others have to stay on 2 per day.
Please note that beta sitosterol is not recommended for anyone who has had an organ or bone marrow transplant. If you are taking Warfarin you should have your INR levels checked as Prostamax can affect this.
We also strongly recommend that if you are suffering from any of the afore-mentioned symptoms that you visit your GP as soon as possible.
