Douglas Labs Uro-Pro 60 caps is a synergistic and comprehensive combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbals, and other nutrients, carefully formulated and specifically designed to support the healthy structure and function of a man's prostate. Uni-Pro™ capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for men who wish to support and maintain the healthy structure and function of their prostate gland. The active ingredients of Uro-Pro™ have been shown to positively affect the structure and function of the prostate gland during the normal aging of men. Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens), aided by pygeum (Pygeum africanum), inhibits the conversion of testosterone to its more active, and potentially deleterious form, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), via inhibition of alpha-5- reductase. Saw palmetto not only inhibits the binding of DHT to cellular receptors, but also has alpha1- adrenoceptor-inhibitory properties. Alpha1- adrenoceptor antagonism may be responsible for saw palmetto's therapeutic effect in supporting the urinary tract during the normal aging of men.
Saw palmetto extracts have also been found to inhibit the biosynthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes which may exacerbate those symptoms. Supplementation with Pygeum africanum extract, in men 50 to 75 years, significantly improved several aspects of prostate function, including nocturnal frequency, maximum flow and volume. Pygeum extract decreases prolactin and cholesterol levels in the prostate, which in turn decreases uptake and reduces the number of binding sites for testosterone in the prostate. In addition, pygeum extract, like saw palmetto, interferes with the synthesis of proinflammatory prostaglandins. Pumpkin seed is thought to have similar pharmacotherapeutic properties. Vitamin E, Zinc, and proanthocyanidins provide potent antioxidant protection against oxidative damage to the prostate. The amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid, as well as Vitamin B-6 and Vitamin A, have been suggested to reduce proliferation of prostate tissue cells.
