Vitamins, Minerals And The Prostate Gland – Purity Products

By Joe Singleton

Selenium is a strong supporter of prostate health. Healthy functionality of a man’s prostate must include a dietary supplement of 100mcg of Selenium daily, according to scientists who published the results of a detailed analysis. Selenium “seeks out” prostate cells and by balancing oxidant/antioxidant levels the cells health is sustained. Due to the promotion of prostate health, the US Food and Drug Administration declared on February 21, 2003 that “Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer” and “Selenium may produce anti-carcinogenic effects in the body. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may produce anti-carcinogenic effects in the body.” These statements reiterate the importance of consuming an ample amount of this nutrient.

While selenium powerfully protects the inner workings of prostate cells, their cell membranes also need defense against oxidative invasion. This is where vitamin E fits in. Recent scientific evidence illustrates the important role of vitamin E in maintaining prostate health by promoting its antioxidant effects on prostate cells.

Prostate health isn’t just a matter of antioxidants. It also depends on proper metabolic control of energy processing within the gland. Even early loss of a small part of regulatory control can decrease prostate health. Although the regulation of energy processing is a complex process in any cell, a few quirks in the way prostate cells handle this challenge have placed the mineral, zinc, in a pivotal position. Recently published research illustrates the role of zinc in prostate function and highlights the special needs of the prostate for zinc. The prostate needs zinc for health – so all men need zinc for prostate health.
