The Prostate Gland, Minerals And Vitamins - Purity Products

Selenium is a strong supporter of prostate health. Healthy functionality of a man’s prostate must include a dietary supplement of 100mcg of Selenium daily, according to scientists who published the results of a detailed analysis. Selenium “seeks out” prostate cells and by balancing oxidant/antioxidant levels the cells health is sustained. Due to the promotion of prostate health, the US Food and Drug Administration declared on February 21, 2003 that “Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer” and “Selenium may produce anti-carcinogenic effects in the body. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may produce anti-carcinogenic effects in the body.” These statements reiterate the importance of consuming an ample amount of this nutrient.

Vitamin E
While Selenium strongly protects the inner workings of the prostate cells, oxidative attacks on their cell membranes need to be prevented. Vitamin E plays a strong role in maintaining prostate health because of its antioxidant effects on prostate cells, according to recent studies.

Prostate health does not just depend on antioxidants, but also proper metabolic control of energy working efficiently within the gland. Prostate health can decrease through an early loss of a small part of regulatory control. While the regulatory process of energy is complex in any cell, the way prostate cells handle this challenge has placed zinc in a pivotal position. The necessity of zinc for prostate functionality is illustrated in recently published research. All men need zinc for adequate prostate health.
