Here is the Andropause Prostate Care Cream ingredient list and each of their traditionally understood benefits:
American Ginseng – Strengthens the adrenal and reproductive glands. Enhances immune functions, promotes lung functioning, and stimulates the appetite. Useful for bronchitis, circulatory problems, diabetes, infertility, lack of energy and stress. Used by athletes for overall body strengthening.
Avocado Oil – May mobilize and increase the collagen of connective tissue; given the highest ranking by the Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology for sunscreen effectiveness. Avocado oil enjoys the highest penetration rate among similar oils.
Bearberry Extract, (Uva Ursi) – Increases the flow of urine but has a sedative and tonic effect on bladder wall. Acts as astringent, diuretic, tonic. Bearberry helps to reduce accumulations of uric acid and to relieve the pain of bladder stones and gravel. Used to alleviate chronic cystitis. It may also help where bed wetting is a problem. Uva Ursi is found in most urinary and bladder tinctures for both men and women.
Carrot Oil – Used since the sixteenth century for skin diseases due to its believed cleansing, depurative, and draining properties. This carotene-rich emollient has been indicated for acne skin conditions, dermatitis, skin irritation, skin rashes, and wrinkles; derived from the carrot root.
Lemon Grass Oil – Is considered astringent and tonic. Lemon grass oil is the volatile oil distilled from the leaves of the lemon grasses.
Natural Glycerin – Is used as a moisturizer and humectant to replace moisture in the skin
Natural Progesterone – Derived from the soy plant and Mexican wild yam root. These sterols are processed through several fermentation steps to yield progesterone which is identical to the progesterone which is produced by the human body.
Natural Vitamin C – Adam’s Prostate Care uses Ascorbic Acid from Malpighia puniciflia, the Acerola cherry. Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant that also protects other antioxidants, such as vitamin E. The cells of the brain and spinal cord, which frequently incur free radial damage, can be protected by significant amounts of vitamin C. Vitamin C acts as a more potent free radical scavenger in the presence of a bioflavonoid called hesperidin. In addition to its role as a antioxidant, Vitamin C detoxifies many harmful substances and plays a key role in immunity. It increases the synthesis of interferon, a natural antiviral product.
Pumpkin Seed Oil – Contains B vitamins, essential fatty acids, protein and zinc. Useful for prostate disorders. Acts as anthelmintic. Pumpkin Seed Oil is also useful for healing wounds, especially burns and chapped skin.
Pygeum Africanum – Is a large evergreen tree native to Africa, where it has been used for a variety of health compliments. The purified fat-soluble extract of the bark of Pygeum Africanum has demonstrated clinical efficacy similar to the extract of saw palmetto. The mechanism of action appears to work via its inhibition of cholesterol uptake by the prostate, antagonizing testosterone, and reducing prostatic inflammation.
Rosemary Extract – Is a natural preservative.
Sarsaparilla – Contains the amino acids methionine and cystein. Sarsaparilla contains a sapogen called diosgenin which contains the female hormone progesterone and male hormone testosterone. Sarsaparilla helps strengthen the nerve fibers and tissue of the brain, spinal cord, lungs, and throat. Sarsaparilla is especially good for removing heavy metallic contaminants from the blood, which are received through the nostrils in the foul, smog filled air of urban areas. Sarsaparilla root, which contains testosterone, will help hair to re-grow.
Saw Palmetto Berries – Acts as a diuretic and urinary antiseptic, stimulates the appetite, inhibits the production of dihydrotestosterone, a hormone that contributes to the enlargement of the prostate. Good for poor appetite and prostate disorders. May also enhance sexual functioning and desire.
Stearal Konium Chloride – Is one of the principal constituents of bentonite clay used in face masks because of its properties as a suspending agent. Don’t be put off by the name; it is perfectly safe.
Vitamin E – Is considered the most important oil soluble antioxidant and free radical scavenger. As a moisturizer, vitamin E is well absorbed through the skin; derived from alfalfa and wheat. One of the reasons Adam’s Prostate Cream is so bio-available.
