Beta-Sitosterol and Prostate Health
Beta-sitosterol is the miraculous common denominator found in saw palmetto, pygeum africanum, pumpkinseed oil and stinging nettles. The concentration of beta sitosterol in these herbs, however is very small . . . at best . . . a mere 3,000th of the amount found in Prostate Miracle®Advanced Formula.
Beta-sitosterol is also found in common foods we eat every day but in even smaller amounts than the above mentioned herbs. It is completely safe and without any side effects.
The chemical structure of beta-sitosterol is similar to that of cholesterol . . . the main difference being the presence of an extra ethyl group.
When it comes to supporting prostate health, there isn't any natural supplement, that has been studied more extensively than beta sitoterol, which is why it has been a key ingredient in Prostate Miracle® since 2003.
For well over twenty years, the role beta-sitosterol plays in supporting prostate health has been studied extensively. Numerous international scientific journals incuding "European Patent", "European Journal of Drug Metab", "International Journal of Immunopharmacol", "Anticancer Research", "The Lancet", "European Urology", "Minerva Urologia", "British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology", "Medizinische Klinik", "Fortsher Med". and many others, have all published their very impressive findings.
Not All Beta Sitosterol Is Created Equally.
Beta Sitosterol is found in nearly every vegetable we eat, as well in many herbs such as saw palmetto, stinging nettles, pumpkin seeds etc. However, the concentration in these sources is very low. For over 20 years, extracted beta sitosterol has been used, as a much more potent concentrated source than any of the above mentioned herbs. These days, a wide range of beta sitosterol quality, purity and potency are available.
There is a great deal of confusion, regarding the terms: phytosterols, phytosterol complex, beta sitosterol and beta sitosterol complex. Much of this confusion is propagated by some of new prostate formula companies, who misuse these terms in order to misrepresent their formulas as being "stronger".
In order to intelligently compare "apples to apples", it is important to clarify these terms. To set the record straight . . . Phytosterols (also known as plant sterols) are a group of steroid alcohols, which occur naturally in plants. Included in this group are the sterols: Beta Sitosterol, Campesterol, Stigmasterol, Brasicasterol; as well as the stanols: Campestanol and Stigmastanol. Of all the components in this phytosterol mix, Beta sitosterol is the most important one for supporting prostate health.
It is important to understand that beta sitosterol does not exist as an isolated raw material. Technically speaking the extracted form is always a phytosterol mix (aka a phytosterol complex), of which beta sitosterol is just one component. Sometimes this phytosterol mix is referred to as a beta sitosterol complex, but to describe it as beta sitosterol, is technically inaccurate and somewhat confusing, yet so commonly done in the natural health industry, that even we (with this explanation) use the terms interchangeably on our website.
The amount of beta sitosterol contained in any phytosterol complex, will depend on both the natural balance of the source material as well as the purity of the phytosterols, which is based on the quality and precision of the extraction process.
In previous years, beta sitosterol was often extracted from sugar cane, but today it is most commonly extracted from soy, with a phytosterol purity of up to 95% and typically containing 40-55% beta sitosterol.
The majority of beta sitosterol available in the USA today, is now being imported from China. ALL Chinese made beta sitosterol is extracted from soy. Many of the newer prostate formulas out there, use the cheaper Chinese made beta sitosterol. Ever since the early 1980s, when China first began competing in the raw materials sector of the U.S. nutrition industry, their quality control has come into question. Beta sitosterol and other raw materials exported from China are often contaminated with unacceptable levels of heavy metals or with the residues of herbicides or pesticides.
Chinese beta sitosterol clearly falls far below the standard we will accept for use in Prostate Miracle® Advanced Formula.
Zinc and Prostate Health
The concentration of zinc in the prostate is higher than that in ANY other soft tissue in the body. This naturally occurring high concentration suggests that zinc may play a role in prostate health.
It is well known that neoplastic diseases, inflammatory diseases, infections and other stresses lead to changes in zinc metabolism, which results in lower blood serum zinc levels in general and lower zinc prostate levels in particular.
- Men with prostatitis typically have 90% lower zinc levels in their prostate than men without prostatitis.
- Men with prostate cancer typically have 83% lower zinc levels in their prostate than men without prostate cancer.
- Men with BPH typically have 61% lower zinc levels in their prostate than men without BPH.
A growing body of evidence supports the notion that high zinc levels are essential for prostate health. The possible mechanisms include the effects of zinc on the inhibition of terminal oxidation, induction of mitochondrial apoptogenesis and suppression of NF-kappaB activity. Zinc may also play an important role in the maintenance of DNA integrity in normal prostate epithelial cells by modulating DNA repair of damaged response proteins, especially p53. In addition, recent findings support the role of the ZIP1 zinc transporter protein, as a tumor suppressor in the prostate.
It is well documented that tumor cells undergo metabolic transformations, that are essential for their malignant existence, but are not the cause of malignancy. The specialized function of the normal prostate glandular epithelium (to produce and secrete enormously high levels of citrate) requires unique intermediary metabolic activities, that are not generally associated with other normal mammalian cells.
The accumulation of zinc in normal prostate glandular epithelial cells results in two important effects, a metabolic effect, and a proliferative effect. Its metabolic effect is the inhibition of citrate oxidation, which is necessary for prostate function. A second effect of zinc is its inhibition on prostate-cell proliferation.
In malignancy, the normal zinc-accumulating citrate-producing epithelial cells are metabolically transformed to citrate-oxidizing cells that lose the ability to accumulate zinc. A genetic alteration in the expression of ZIP1 zinc transporter is associated with this metabolic transformation. These genetic/metabolic relationships have important consequences on citrate-related metabolism, bioenergetics, cell proliferation, and invasive capabilities of the malignant cells, which result in tumor-suppression characteristics. Zinc is critical to these relationships.
It appears that the development of malignancy in prostate cancer may involve an essential metabolic transformation that results in the lost capability of malignant cells to accumulate zinc. Consideration of the clinical and biochemical evidence presented here leads to the conclusion that an altered zinc metabolism may play an important role in the pathogenesis of prostate malignancy.
Further studies will help clarify whether, along with clinical diagnosis, the zinc concentration in prostate biopsy specimens, plasma zinc and urine zinc/creatinine ratio of patients presenting with symptoms of prostatic diseases, are useful in the differential diagnosis of diagnosed prostatic carcinoma and BPH.
Vitamin D3 and Prostate Health
A new study published by the journal Clinical Cancer Research (May 2014), suggests that low blood levels of vitamin D may be linked to more aggressive and advanced cases of prostate cancer. The study suggests that vitamin D may play an important role in how prostate cancer starts and spreads, although it does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship. Researchers aren't yet sure exactly how it comes into play or even if taking extra vitamin D might keep prostate cancer in check.
"We really don't know, for certain, what role vitamin D plays in cancer . . . either the genesis or beginning of cancer . . . or in defining how aggressive the cancer may be," he said. "Further research has to be done."
What is known is that vitamin D plays several critical roles in how cells develop and grow.
"It seems to regulate normal differentiation of cells as they change from stem cells to adult cells. And it regulates the growth rate of normal cells and cancer cells." said study author Dr. Adam Murphy, an assistant professor of urology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, in Chicago.
Vitamin D is also known as the "sunshine vitamin" because skin makes it when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D levels tend to drop with advancing age, and deficiency is more common in seasons and regions that get less sunlight and in people with darker skin, which naturally blocks the sun.
What about the vitamin's possible relationship to cancer?
"When you squirt vitamin D on prostate cells in a petri dish, their rate of growth slows down," Murphy said.
The idea is that too little of this critical vitamin in the body may cause cell growth to go awry, leading to cancer.
To test that idea, researchers checked vitamin D levels in 667 Chicago men between the ages of 40 and 79 who were having prostate biopsies because they'd recently had an abnormal prostate specific antigen (PSA) test or because a doctor felt changes to the prostate during a physical exam.
- Normal vitamin D levels are in the range of 30 to 80 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml).
- Vitamin D deficiency, or a level under 20 ng/ml, was relatively common among all the men tested.
- About 44 percent of the men with positive biopsies and 38 percent of those who tested negative for cancer had low vitamin D levels.
- Among men who tested positive for cancer after their biopsies, those who also had very low levels of vitamin D under 12 ng/ml had greater odds of more advanced and aggressive cancers than those with normal levels.
A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the journal Prostate (2014) looked at the possibility that vitamin D may help reduce cancer-causing inflammation. Scientists found that the gene GDF-15, known to be up-regulated by vitamin D can help block a protein which stimulates tumor growth.
"When you take vitamin D and put it on prostate cancer cells, it inhibits their growth. But it hasn't been proven as an anti-cancer agent" said James Lambert, lead investigator at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. "We wanted to understand what genes vitamin D is turning on or off in prostate cancer to offer new targets."
Using a sophisticated computer algorithm, researchers analyzed samples of prostate cells and compared them to the prevalence of GDF-15 and inflammatory cells. Because they were able to demonstrate that vitamin D up-regulates the gene expression for GDF-15, they decided to further investigate to see if GDF-15 could be a pathway in which vitamin D inhibits prostate tumor growth. The results were compelling.
"There's been a lot of work on inhibiting NFkB," said Lambert. "Now, from this starting point of vitamin D in prostate cancer, we've come a long way toward understanding how we might use GDF-15 to target NFkB, which may have implications in cancer types far beyond prostate."
Have you checked your vitamin D blood level lately? If not, you may want to make an appointment with your doctor to check them with a simple blood test. Your levels should be between 30 and 80 ng/mL.
If you are thinking about taking a vitamin D supplement, you should be taking at least 1,000-2,000 IU a day.
A daily serving of Prostate Miracle® Advanced Formula provides 2,000 IU of vitamin D3, which is an optimal amount to support prostate health.
