This November we’re celebrating MOVEMBER and shining our SPOTLIGHT on MEN’S HEALTH. When it comes to supplements, each individual is unique in their needs, but there are several supplements and herbal formulas that relate to the specific needs of men’s health.

Today in the spotlight is Nature’s Sunshine Men’s Formula – a unique mineral/herbal combination designed for men over age 40 specifically providing nutritional support for the prostate gland.

By the age of 70, 7 out of 10 Canadian men develop a noncancerous condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) – enlargement of the prostate. Symptoms of BPH include: increased frequency of urination, difficulty starting and stopping the stream of urine flow, incontinence, painful urination, blood in urine, inability to completely empty the bladder.

Luckily, there are some simple lifestyle changes men can make to keep their prostates healthy including dietary modifications, exercise and supplementation. SAW PALMETTO (in this formula) is an herb that’s been the subject of extensive research in this area. It has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine and was once called the “plant catheter” due to its effect on the urinary system. ZINC is one of our most important trace minerals. It is needed for many hormones and is widely used for prostate problems. STINGING NETTLE is an herb with many medically proven benefits, including having a stimulating effect on the kidneys with a resulting diuretic effect. GINKGO BILOBA enhances circulation, mental function and memory.

As with all herbal supplements, please consult with your practitioner if you are taking other medications to ensure no adverse reactions may occur. Could you benefit from taking Men’s Formula? BOOK an analysis and find out… and men receive $10 OFF analysis fees during the month of ‘MOVEMBER’!
