It is a fact that one in every six American men will struggle with serious prostate issues at some point in their lifetimeand if youre over the age of fifty, chances are good that youre one of them. But whether youre taking the path of "watchful waiting", or wading through the dizzying list of more drastic options, theres one thing you should know:
There are safe, well researched, non-invasive options available to you.
Theres no doubt about it: Recovering lasting prostate health isnt a simple task and there are many complex factors to considerfrom urinary function to hormonal modulation to proper cellular differentiation. But the truth is, you can address all of these critical areaswithout risking your livelihood in the processwith the help of a breakthrough natural formula called ProstaCaid.
Drawing from the latest advances in prostate research, this breakthrough formula applies the finest principles of integrative medicine to offer you superior, scientifically proven prostate care and powerful cellular protectionsafely, naturally, and without a troublesome list of side effects.
Econugenics ProstaCaid is an all-natural, multi-ingredient supplement that combines 33 powerful nutrients, medicinal mushrooms, minerals, and botanicals that work together to provide powerful, long-lasting prostate support.
This doctor-designed, multi-dimensional formula covers every facet of superior prostate health, including:
Critical hormone modulation. A proprietary blend of herbs and nutrients supports healthy levels of alpha-reductase, DHT, and aromatase, helping to slow estrogen formation and improve critical estrogen-testosterone ratios in your body.
Strong but gentle detoxification. Natural botanicals support liver detoxification and facilitate the safe and gentle excretion of estrogens and dangerous estrogen-mimicking compounds, all of which are known to play key roles in a variety of prostate concerns.
Powerful cellular protection. Harnessing the free-radical-fighting power of the most potent antioxidants in nature, this novel formula promotes healthy cell growth in both hormone sensitive and hormone resistant prostate cells.
Vital immune enhancement. The three different species of beneficial mushrooms, Phellinus linteus, Ganoderma lucidum, and Coriolus versicolor, are grown on a proprietary botanically enhanced organic brown rice, developed by Dr. Isaac Eliaz. The botanicals used in the process improves the potency of the mushrooms and the overall effectiveness of the formula.
Each ingredient in ProstaCaid is selected on the basis of potency, quality, and scientific research demonstrating unique benefits for prostate health. By combining these components, ProstaCaid is a highly effective, safe, and synergistic formula designed to offer cellular support, healthy immune function, and ideal hormonal balance.
"Whether youre looking for active prostate support, or long-term maintenance, you can count on ProstaCaid for the most powerful and complete prostate protection possible." - Dr. Isaac Eliaz, MD, MS, L.Ac.
NEW YORKThe supplement ProstaCaid, a blend of vitamins, minerals, multi-herb extracts and derivatives, may be a potential chemopreventive and therapeutic agent for prostate cancer, according to a recent study from Columbia University Medical Center (Integr Cancer Ther 2010 9: 186). ProstaCaid, offered by EcoNugenics, was shown to help prevent and treat both androgendependent (AD) and independent (AI) prostate cancer in human and mouse cells.
The researchers found long-term treatment with ProstaCaid reduced the colony formation capacities of prostate cancer cells. Tests also revealed ProstaCaid induced apoptosis (cell death) in the cancer tissue after 72 hours of treatment.
ProstaCaid combines 33 nutrients, minerals, herbs and herbal enhanced medicinal mushrooms that work together to provide effective prostate health support, according to EcoNugenics. Further, in a press release, the company noted EcoNugenics's founder and formulator Dr. Isaac Eliaz designed this compound to promote prostate health through critical hormone modulation, liver detoxification support, cellular protection and vital immune responses.
ProstaCaid (33-ingredient comprehensive polyherbal preparation) against prostate cancer...... We have seen the many benefits of natural products rich in Quercetin, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and many other polyphenol antioxidant from natural products like green tea, broccoli peaches and plums. Interestingly, now researchers from Columbia University have come up with an interesting finding, i.e., ProstaCaid is a 33-ingredient comprehensive polyherbal preparation with supplements of vitamin C, vitamin D3, zinc, selenium, quercitin, 3,3?-diinodolymethane (DIM), and lycopene was able to stop abnormal cell growth and induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in both hormone sensitive and hormone resistant prostate cancer cell lines at unusually low concentrations, which makes the findings more significant...
Herbal extracts include the extracts from turmeric root, saw palmetto berry, grape skin, pomegranate, pumpkin seed, pygeum bark, sarsaparilla root, green tea, and Japanese knotweed. Hence, it is rich in natural polyphenols, including quercetin, resveratrol, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), and ellagic acid, which have previously demonstrated anticancer potential. The unique formula contains 3 medicinal mushrooms grown on an herbal-enhanced medium. The mushrooms included are Phellinus linteus, Ganoderma lucidum, and Coriolus versicolor, each with known anticancer properties.
Researchers claim that, ProstaCaid was designed based on constituents that exhibit antiprolifetaive, antioxidant, and apoptotic activities; however, its efficacy and the mechanisms of action are yet to be examined. Researchers looked at the effectiveness of the preparation in suppressing several types of prostate cancer cell lines in culture and attempt to delineate the mechanism of action for justification in pursuing animal to determine efficicacy invivo.
Researchers conclude that, the anticancer activity of ProstaCaid may be ascribed to its polyphenolic flavonoids and curcuminoids derived from various herbs as well as other supplements, such as DIM. The preparation contains supplements such as quercetin (15%), Curcuma longa root extract complex with enhanced bioavailability (BCM-95; 20%), DIM (3%), and resveratrol (0.2%). Some of these components have shown a strong dose and time-dependent growth inhibition and apoptotic death in prostate cancer cells; 25 mM of quercetin inhibited about 50% PC3 cell growth for 72 hours. At 24 hours, 50 mM and 100 mM quercetin induced G2/M arrest and apoptosis, manifested by the decrease in G2/M-related protiens.
Researchers summarise that, ProstaCaid has anti-cancer activities in both AD and AI prostate cancer cells at very low concentrations (25 mg/mL). It also suggests that ProstaCaid inhibits cell growth and survival, at least through the inhibition of AKT and MAPK signaling. The effect on AI cell lines is especially of importance as there is presently no curative therapy for hormone refractory prostate cancer.
Researchers postulate that ProstaCaid may affect activity of Cdc2/cyclin B1 kinase by reducing this complex formation. Cdc2 could be dephosphorylated by Cdc25C and become inactive or be phosphorylated by protein kinase, such as Wee1, and then converted into an inactive form. They also suggest that more studies are needed in the future to test it and to define its upstream events in PC3 cells.
