Protocol For Life Balance Ortho Prostate provides a synergistic formulation of standardized extracts of herbs and nutrients that have been shown to promote healthy prostate function, normal urine flow and healthy cell replication. With a staggering percentage of the male population experiencing common age-related effects on the prostate, promoting healthy prostate function is essential for all men, especially those over 35.
Ortho Prostate contains Saw Palmetto extract, which has consistently demonstrated its beneficial effects on prostate function in clinical studies. It also contains Pygeum, which can aid urinary tract health, and Stinging Nettle Root, which has been shown to help support healthy dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels in prostate cells. DHT is a metabolite of testosterone that tends to accumulate with age.
In addition, Ortho Prostate contains Lycopene, which possesses outstanding antioxidant properties, and may play an important role in maintaining prostate and cardiovascular health. Health Functions:

As a dietary supplement (especially for men), take 2 softgels daily with meals. Caution:
Studies on saw palmetto, pygeum, stinging nettle extract and various combinations of these herbs have reported good tolerance and side effects similar to placebo. The most likely side effects are gastrointestinal. May interact with anticoagulants, such as warfarin, to increase bleeding time, but reports are inconsistent on this point. Some internet sites claim an interaction, although a major review found no drug interactions. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children. Disclaimer:
