SP Ultimate is a blend of herbs, vitamin D, minerals and antioxidants to offer support for prostate health. Saw palmetto is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve the urologic symptoms (e.g. weak urine flow, incomplete voiding, frequent daytime and nighttime urination) associated with mild to moderate BPH. It supports healthy urinary function, in part by maintaining healthy hormone metabolism and enzyme activities. A meta-analysis involving 18 randomized controlled trials and almost 3,000 men indicated that saw palmetto provided positive support for urinary health. These actions are combined with the powerful prostate cell support potential of lycopene. Data from over 47,000 participants in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study suggested that tomato or lycopene intake was positively associated with prostate cell health. Lycopene and green tea provide enhanced antioxidant support, and are provided alongside beta-sitosterol, selenium, zinc, vitamin D, and standardized turmeric and pomegranate extracts.
