Supports urinary and prostate function and cellular health
SP Ultimate is a comprehensive prostate formula containing herbs, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to provide high capacity support for prostate and urinary function as well prostate cell health.
Saw palmetto, pygeum and betasitosterol offer support for healthy urinary function, in part by maintaining healthy hormone metabolism and enzyme activities. A metaanalysis involving 18 randomized controlled trials and almost 3,000 men indicated that saw palmetto provided positive support for urinary health. In a related metaanalysis, pygeum demonstrated similar support. A randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled, multicenter study with 200 male subjects revealed that betasitosterol also provides promising urinary function support. These actions are combined with the powerful prostate cell support potential of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and herbs included in this formula. Data from over 47,000 participants in the Health Professionals FollowUp Study suggested that tomato or lycopene intake was positively associated with prostate cell health. Healthy plasma concentrations of alphatocopherol, selenium and zinc have also been associated with maintaining healthy prostate cell metabolism. In one large cohort study involving 29,133 men, alphatocopherol supplementation provided healthy cell support for the prostate. Vitamin D, curcumin and green tea play key roles in prostate cell health, including support for healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity, cell receptor function and cell signaling. Pomegranate and silymarin provide enhanced antioxidant support and promote healthy prostate cell cycle function.
SP Ultimate by pure encapsulations is most comprehensive prostate formula containing a dynamic saw palmetto complex with herbs, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to provide high capacity support for prostate and urinary function as well prostate cell health.
Saw palmetto has been used safely for decades to support healthy prostate and urinary function. Its primary mode of action involves supporting healthy testosterone metabolism, in part by maintaining healthy 5-alpha-reductase enzyme activity and receptor binding. It may also help maintain healthy lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase activity. A meta analysis involving 18 randomized controlled trials and almost 3,000 men indicated that saw palmetto promoted urinary function.
Pygeum africanum contains phytosterols, pentacyclic terpenes and ferulic esters that all play a role in supporting prostate health. Together these components help maintain healthy prostaglandin and prolactin metabolism in the prostate. A meta-analysis involving over 1,500 men revealed that pygeum also promoted urinary function.
Beta-sitosterol naturally occurs as part of a phytosterol complex. Research suggests that it provides support for urinary function in part by moderating 5-alpha-reductase activity. A meta-analysis involving 4 double blind trials and over 500 men indicated that it promoted healthy urinary function. A follow-up study found similar results after 18 months.
Numerous studies, including the Health Professionals Follow Up Study with over 47,000 participants, suggest that tomato or lycopene intake is positively associated with prostate cell health, particularly for intakes of 6 mg or more. Three capsules of SP Ultimate provide 10 mg of lycopene derived from a natural tomato extract rich in lycopene, carotenoids and phytochemicals.
Higher serum selenium levels have been associated with cell health. In the body, selenium promotes healthy glutathione peroxidase enzyme activity. A recent study indicated that daily intake of 200 micrograms yeast-based selenium supported prostate cell health, particularly for people with lower serum selenium levels.
Vitamin E, or alpha-tocopherol, is a fat-soluble vitamin with critical antioxidant functions. A large cohort study involving 29,133 men revealed that alpha-tocopherol supplementation provided healthy cell support for the prostate. A case-control study using this same population suggests that higher circulating levels from daily intake of alpha-tocopherol may be particularly important.
Research suggests that healthy serum vitamin D levels are positively associated with prostate cell health, a result of its ability to support healthy cell cycle function, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity, cell receptor function and cell signaling.
Prostatic secretions contain high concentrations of zinc suggesting that it plays an important role in prostate function. Additionally, healthy plasma concentrations of zinc have been associated with maintaining healthy prostate cell metabolism.
Pomegranate extract is a rich source of antioxidant polyphenols, including anthocyanidins and ellagic acid. Research indicates that it supports healthy prostate cell cycle function.
Silymarin provides enhanced antioxidant support and promotes healthy prostate cell cycle function and cell receptor function.*
Curcumin provides powerful antioxidant support for prostate cell health and maintains healthy MMP activity.
Green tea is rich in polyphenols, particularly the catechin epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). A recent study indicates that green tea polyphenols support healthy cell signaling and MMP activity.
