Scientifically-proven effects of the individual ingredients:
LinumLife® is a standardized linseed extract that contains various lignans. Lignans are secondary plant substances with weak phyto-oestrogens and a clear antioxidative effect. The most important lignan in linseed is the so-called secoisolariciresinol diglucoside that is converted into secoisolariciresinol by the intestinal flora and subsequently, due to further metabolic processes, into enterolactone and enterodiol. These lignans benefit the general health of cells. Lignans have demonstrated a positive effect on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH); they apparently balance hormone levels that play a role in the development of BPH. This shrinks the prostate and reduces inflammatory processes. The lignans in LinumLife have been clinically tested, and are safe and easily digestible.
Biocurcumin BCM95® is a patented extract of turmeric that has numerous biological effects. For instance, it has antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-rheumatic effects. Unlike normal turmeric extract, the bioavailability of Biocurcumin BCM95 is extremely good (about seven times higher). This means that when only 250 mg of Biocurcumin BCM95 is taken orally, it reaches approximately the same efficacy level in the blood that normally requires approximately 1500 mg of turmeric extract or approximately 37,500 mg of normal curcumin powder. This means that taking Biocurcumin BCM95 rapidly leads to therapeutic concentrations of the important curcuminoid in the blood.
The Biocurcumin BCM95 complex has the following positive distinguishing characteristics:
- 100% natural extract from turmeric (curcuma longa) without artificial additives
• Clinical studies show that the bioavailability of BCM95 extract is seven to eight times higher than other curcumin extracts
• Considerably smaller doses achieve the same effect as high doses of traditional curcumin extracts
• Powerful antioxidative effect
• Clinically significant anti-inflammatory properties
This carotenoid (pigment that gives tomatoes their characteristic red colour) has a pronounced, powerfully antioxidative effect.
More recent research indicates that lycopene can be used therapeutically too. It seems that lycopene is the dominant carotenoid in our blood and it is not converted into vitamin A. It forms approximately 50% of all carotenoid in the blood and appears to be concentrated mainly in the prostate, as slightly elevated concentrations were detected in the blood near this organ. ProstaLin-C contains about 50 mg of lycopene as a therapeutic dose for patients with prostate disorders.
This trace element supports scores of immune functions, and an inadequate intake of zinc could generally increase well-being. Zinc is needed in order for many enzymes to work normally, particularly enzymes with an antioxidative effect. A fall in the zinc level in the blood inhibits the NK-cells, the T-helper cells, and even the macrophages of the immune system. ProstaLin-C contains 32 mg of zinc and provides the daily required dose of this trace element.
This mineral, similarly to vitamin E, has a preventative effect.
Selenium is normally found in various types of grain and in garlic, particularly if these are cultivated in soil that is rich in selenium. The daily quantity needed as a complementary treatment is between 400 and 800 micrograms.
