New Research Reveals Some Natural Supplements Effective Against Prostate Cancer
Date:6/21/2012

BOSTON, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Several university studies conducted by medical researchers have had some surprising results, revealing evidence proving several common, naturally-occurring ingredients are effective in reducing or eliminating prostate cancer cells in both lab cultures and live mice studies.   As a result, nutraceuticals containing extracts of these ingredients may be indicated in supporting men's prostate health.

  • African Plum Tree Bark Extract  - The extract of the bark of the African plum tree (pygeum africanum) is currently used in the US and Europe in the treatment of enlarged prostate (also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH). In a recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia, pygeum africanum was shown to induce tumor cell apoptosis (tumor cell death),  And laboratory mice who were fed a preparation of the pygeum extract exhibited a reduced incidence of prostate cancer compared with control mice that were fed a standard diet.
  • White Button Mushroom Extract - The extract of this edible mushroom (agaricus bisporus) has been indicated as successfully inhibiting the growth of prostate cancer cells.  In a study carried out at the Beckman research institute, tumor cells exposed in vitro and in vivo to the extract of the white button mushroom showed a significant decrease in tumor size and reduced rates of cancer cell growth.
  • Sang Huang Mushroom Extract  (phellinus linteus) – According to researchers at the Harvard Medical School, a preparation of phellinus linteus was injected into laboratory mice who were affected by prostate cancer. The results showed that the Sang Huang extract played a role in reducing the rate of cancer cell growth, as well as causing a significant reduction in overall tumor size.

Preventing Prostate Cancer
Preventing prostate problems and other men's health issues depends in part on making the right lifestyle choices. Practicing good dietary habits, getting plenty of physical exercise, avoiding the use of tobacco products, and keeping alcohol consumption to a moderate level can lead to overall good health and maximize the body's ability to fight off diseases ranging from the common cold to cancer.  Nutraceuticals can play a major role in protecting a person's health.
