Prostate Health Background & Application

As a normal part of aging, the prostate gland swells in size and may result in signs and symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH). Certain nutrients influence the growth and blood flow to the prostate.


Research Summaries


Pumpkin Seed Oil

Pumpkin seeds contain large amounts of long chain fatty acids and phytochemicals that have been shown to aid in prostate health. The German Commission E has approved Pumpkin Seed Oil for problems of Stage 1 or 2 levels of BPH. It also shows anti-androgenic and anti-inflammatory effects. Subjects in one study showed a decline in dihydrotestosterone levels in prostatic tissue when using pumpkin seed and saw palmetto1. Another study showed a reduction in symptoms in patients with BPH given pumpkin seed oil2.


Saw Palmetto, Nettle & Pygeum

Saw Palmetto has been extensively researched for its role in BPH and prostate cancer. A recent study published in Endocrinology showed Saw Palmetto inhibited IGF-1 signaling pathway thereby mediating antiproliferative effects on prostate cells3. Nettle, too, exhibits an antiproliferative effect in human prostate cancer development4. Pygeum has also shown this effect5 in both BPH and prostate cancer cells.



Lycopene may exert chemoprotective effects through hormone modulation, carcinogen metabolism, and immune system function. Research links it to reductions in skin, breast, prostate, digestive tract, cervix and bladder cancer risk. Research has shown that lycopene supplementation with 15 mg of the substance reduced the growth of prostate cancer in men newly diagnosed with the disease6. Additional research demonstrates that lycopene appears to interfere with IGF-I receptor signaling and cell cycle progression in mammary cancer cells7.



A 2005 study in Neoplasma showed that low serum selenium concentrations were observed in both BPH and prostate cancer patients compared with healthy controls8.
