Core Nutritionals is a brand that many hold in high regard. They are known for their loaded formulas, flavoring, efficacious dosages, and simply being a great brand all around. They are certainly regarded as one of the best brands when it comes to sports nutrition.
Recently, Core Nutritionals launched a new line of supplements. The new line is called Lifeline, which is more geared towards health and wellness, instead of performance at the gym. In an industry filled with over-caffeinated pre-workouts, overhyped fat burners, and sketchy fat burners, Core is here to remind you that you are human, and you need to take care of yourself.
Today we are looking at Prostate, which of course is a product meant to aid men with their prostate gland. Let’s take a look at what we get in Prostate, and how it may help you.
Pumpkin Seed Oil Powder – 1000mg
The first ingredient in Core Prostate is Pumpkin Seed Oil Powder. According to a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, Pumpkin Seed Oil may be good for benign prostate hypertrophy. Benefits were noticed with 3 months of continued use, and you are getting more than what the study used in Prostate. The study also compared the next ingredient.
Saw Palmetto (85% Fatty Acids) – 360mg
Saw Palmetto is the next ingredient in Prostate. In the study mentioned above, Saw Palmetto was also compared, and also showed to be beneficial for benign prostate hypertrophy. Saw Palmetto is one of the most common ingredients used for prostate health, at 400mg it is dosed well.
It may be beneficial for reducing DHT levels in the body. High DHT levels are linked to higher risk of prostate cancer.
Stinging Nettle – 360mg
Stinging Nettle is the next ingredient in Prostate, and it is another common ingredient for prostate health. It is typically known as being anti-inflammatory, and has multiple health benefits.
It has also been shown to be potentially beneficial for reducing the conversion of testosterone into DHT.
DIM – 300mg
You see DIM in a lot of hormone optimizing products. DIM is common in many hormonal products, as it has research showing it to be an aromatase inhibitor. Aromatase converts testosterone to estrogen, which is something men tend to want to avoid.
At 300mg in Prostate, you are getting a good dose.
Pygeum Bark Extract – 200mg
Pygeum Bark Extract is an herb extract that is actually not as popular as some other prostate health supplements, even though it certainly has some backing to it. Pygeum Bark Extract has been shown in a meta-analysis that it may have some modest benefits for men with BPH.
At 200mg, you are getting a solid dose.
Beta Sitosterol – 180mg
Next we have Beta-Sitosterol, which is another common ingredient for both healthy cholesterol levels, as well as prostate formulas. It is a phytosterol, and has been shown to alleviate symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
At 180mg, you’re getting a solid dose in here.
Lycopene – 30mg
Finally we come to Lycopene, which is common for men’s health supplements. It is a carotenoid, which means it is a powerful antioxidant. There is some research showing that men who eat more Lycopene rich foods have a lower rate of developing an enlarged prostate. While a healthy diet is optimal, supplementation can certainly help.
30mg is a solid dose of course.
Core Nutritionals really knows what they’re doing when it comes to health products. If a brand can put together well-dosed sports nutrition products, you know they are going to do their due diligence in the health and wellness category.
Lifeline Prostate really comes at you with solid doses and research backed ingredients. We had the rebrand for Core Nutritionals last year, however now you can see they are looking beyond the pre-workouts, fat burners, and protein powders. This is a true expansion and not just more of the same… and of course, Core is doing it right by making a great product to help you with your actual health, and not just your workouts.
