Stacking the Right Ingredients for Better Prostate Health

3 minutes to read



Almost every man in America has one thing in common; by the time you reach your 70th birthday, you’ll experience the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Constant urge to urinate, frequent trips to the bathroom throughout the night, so sleep becomes almost impossible, and diminished sexual performance is just a few of the issues all men will likely face as they age.

Prescription medications can help some, but their side effects can be as disruptive to the quality of your life as an enlarged prostate. That's why natural prostate health supplements are exploding in popularity. Many of these supplements have ingredients proven to help keep your prostate in good working order. The question is, which ingredients have proven success.


Saw Palmetto

Saw palmetto tree berries are the most commonly used ingredient in prostate support supplements. Numerous studies have shown that saw palmetto reduces DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a derivative of testosterone.

Problems develop when you overproduce DHT, which causes abnormal prostate growth and the condition of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Saw palmetto contains a chemical that affects the level of testosterone and blocks the production of DHT.

A review of studies involving 3,000 men with enlarged prostate symptoms concluded that men taking saw palmetto extract reported substantial improvement of urinary flow and urinary tract symptoms compared to control subjects. Additionally, the men experienced less frequent urination throughout the night. Saw palmetto has no reported drug interactions and very few side effects.


Stack on Saw Palmetto...

Now, stacking means combining multiple supplements to achieve a specific goal more quickly than you would experience if you just took one alone. Some more common stacking goals are weight loss, muscle gain, and improved mental and physical performance. You can also stack supplements and specific ingredients for better prostate health and function.

Research shows that combining proven ingredients with saw palmetto has been shown to have better prostate issue outcomes. These ingredients include Pygeum Africanium, Beta-Sitosterol, Quercetin, Stinging Nettle, and Reishi Mushroom.



Beta-Sitosterol is a phytonutrient found in saw palmetto, Pygeum Africanum, and stinging nettle. Recent advancements in herbal extraction have allowed for pure Beta-Sitosterol, which is a much more powerful ingredient.

A study involving 519 men and reported in the British Journal of Urology showed Beta-sitosterol improved urinary outflow and volume. The most effective daily dosage is in the range of 270mg or more of Beta-Sitosterols.


Pygeum Africanum

Pygeum Africanum is another commonly used ingredient to address prostate issues. A review of eighteen studies involving 1,562 men showed that taking Pygeum Africanum can increase urine flow and decrease nighttime urination. Studies show that taking a supplement with a minimum of 100 mg of Pygeum Africanum or splitting into two 50mg doses twice daily can help with BPH symptoms.


Stinging Nettle

Like saw palmetto, stinging nettle helps block the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Alone stinging nettle can help relieve BPH symptoms. Combined with saw palmetto, it seems to have a more powerful effect. A clinical trial on 257 men combined stinging nettle with saw palmetto showed significant improvement in every urinary function measured, including output, flow rate, residual urinary volume, duration of urination, and prostate size (determined by ultrasound).


Reishi Mushroom

A clinical study researching if reishi mushroom can effectively address BPH issues showed urine output improved significantly, and prostate weight declined. Substantial evidence indicates that the reishi mushroom helps reduce frequent urination and supports healthy prostate function.



Quercetin is a flavonoid and antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits. In a double-blind study, a combination of quercetin, zinc, saw palmetto and other herbs showed 82% of patients had a more than 25% improvement in prostate function.


How to Maintain a Healthy Prostate

If you have a family history of prostate problems, start yearly checkups around age 40. Quitting smoking and vaping, reducing alcohol consumption, eating a balanced diet, and daily exercise goes a long way towards preventing age-related prostate problems.

Recognizing warning signs as early as possible and implementing preventative therapies like Prostavol's Prostate Support can significantly minimize the chance that your condition becomes more severe, and Prostate Support contains every one of the research-proven ingredients outlined above.

No matter what your age, adding a full spectrum prostate support supplement like Prostavol's Prostate Support can help reduce symptoms of enlarged prostate and support your healthy prostate function
