If you’re familiar with Young Living, you know the painstaking efforts that go into the development of each of our products. Our newest essential oil supplement, Prostate Health™, is no different! Each ingredient included in these nutrient-rich veggie softgels has been included for a specific reason, and I want to tell you about a few of them.
Perhaps the most important element in Prostate Health is a proprietary blend of five essential oils—ingredients that set our prostate formulation apart from other products on the market. Take a look below to learn how these health-promoting oils can positively affect the prostate, an area that often becomes victim to cell overgrowth as men age.
Geranium—Studied at Japan’s Teikyo University, geranium oil was determined to suppress both acute and chronic inflammatory responses. Geranium is also high in citral. A recent study at the University of Mississippi found that citral modulated and reduced uncontrolled cell growth.
Fennel—This essential oil contains anethole, a powerful anti-inflammatory that may help reduce cell overgrowth in the prostate. Fennel essential oil is also known for stimulating the circulatory, glandular, and digestive systems.
Lavender—Lavender essential oil affects the sympathetic nervous system, which can promote urinary tract relaxation and improve prostate function. Known for its keen balancing properties, lavender also contains linalool, a monoterpene alcohol with anti-inflammatory properties.
Myrtle—Researched for its effects on glandular and thyroid imbalances, myrtle ranks high on the ORAC scale at an approximate level of 253,512 TE/L. (TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.)
Peppermint—Traditionally used as an aid for normal digestion, peppermint is also known for helping to combat mental and physical fatigue. This oil is rich in menthol, which can modulate inflammatory processes according to numerous scientific studies.
Scientists have found that saw palmetto’s fatty acid content helps support a healthy prostate gland by inhibiting the hormones thought to be responsible for the enlargement of the prostate. Young Living’s saw palmetto fatty acids make up at least 80 percent of its content, which is dramatically higher than other saw palmetto products.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkin seeds are a rich, natural source of phytosterols, and are one of the highest-known carriers of squalene, a substance that has been studied for its disease-preventative qualities. Because Young Living uses an organic pumpkin seed oil, the color can actually change dramatically from batch to batch, varying from green to a red-orange color. This is just one more sign that you’re receiving natural, organic ingredients in this Young Living product.
