Douglas Laboratories U Pro Product Information

U-Pro™, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a synergistic and comprehensive combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbals, and other nutrients, carefully formulated and specifically designed to support the healthy structure and function of a man’s prostate.*

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens), aided by pygeum (Pygeum africanum), inhibits the conversion of testosterone to its more active, and potentially deleterious form, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), via inhibition of alpha-5- reductase. Saw palmetto not only inhibits the binding of DHT to cellular receptors, but also has alpha1- adrenoceptor-inhibitory properties. Alpha1- adrenoceptor antagonism may be responsible for saw palmetto’s therapeutic effect in supporting the urinary tract during the normal aging of men.* Saw palmetto extracts have also been found to inhibit the biosynthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes which may exacerbate those symptoms.*

Pygeum extract decreases prolactin and cholesterol levels in the prostate, which in turn decreases uptake and reduces the number of binding sites for testosterone in the prostate.* In addition, pygeum extract, like saw palmetto, interferes with the synthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins. Pumpkin seed is thought to have similar pharmacotherapeutic properties.*

Vitamin E, zinc, and proanthocyanidins provide potent antioxidant protection against oxidative damage to the prostate.* The amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid, as well as vitamin B-6 and vitamin A, have been suggested to reduce proliferation of prostate tissue cells.*

Benefits
