Vitabase Prostate Support is a natural formula designed to keep your prostate healthy.

Saw Palmetto is one of the most thoroughly studied and documented natural remedies for prostate problems. European studies since the 1960’s have shown that men taking saw palmetto experience significant improvement in urinary tract symptoms (28%), peak urine flow (24%) and overall urine flow (48%). Further research is necessary before specific health benefits can be established.

Pygeum africanum bark extract comes from central and south Africa where it has been used to treat bladder and urinary problems. The active chemical in pygeum is Beta Sitosterol. Research attaches many benefits to beta sitosterol including reducing such discomforts of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) and lowering cholesterol. Further research is necessary before specific health benefits can be established.

Beta sitosterol has long been used by Europeans for prostate problems and now its popularity is growing among American men. Promising results from research are published regularly. A Lancet study found that men with BPH who were given beta sitosterol daily for six months showed significant improvement in urinary difficulties. Those given a placebo reported no relief. A 1999 review of four clinical trials involving 519 men with mild to moderate BPH found that beta sitosterol provided notable relief from urinary problems. It also increased urine flow and caused few side effects. Further research is necessary before specific health benefits can be established.

Nettle is often combined with saw palmetto and pygeum africanum to ease BPH symptoms. German research suggests that stinging nettle’s benefit comes from reducing prostate swelling. Further research is necessary before specific health benefits can be established.

Lycopene is being studied for potential positive effects on the prostate.

Unlike competing products, we package our prostate formula in a softgel to preserve the potency of its active ingredients.
