Prosta-Friendly is a 100% natural cranberry supplement formulated from the fruit of the Vaccinium macrocarpon species. Recognised as a natural aid for preventing and treating urinary infections, cranberry is also beneficial for prostate health, as has been demonstrated by a number of scientific studies conducted over recent years. As a result of such research, scientists believe cranberry is able to combat prostate symptoms, with studies focusing in particular on the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Several studies show that cranberry's benefits may be linked to a reduction in levels of prostate-specific antigen or PSA. This is a protein produced by the prostate gland which liquefies semen, allowing sperm to move more freely. PSA is generally present in small quantities in men's blood, but can be elevated in the presence of prostate disorders. Measuring PSA levels is indeed used in the diagnosis of BPH or prostate cancer. Reducing PSA concentrations may therefore have a beneficial effect in combatting BPH.
The therapeutic qualities of cranberry extract were assessed in a study using the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), a diagnostic tool which enables identification of the presence or development of BPH. The study confirmed the following association between use of this cranberry extract and improvements in quality of life and symptoms of BPH: a 25% improvement with a 250mg dose of cranberry extract; and a 44% improvement with a 500mg dose of cranberry extract.
In particular, researchers observed:
To fully capitalise on these beneficial effects, Prosta-Friendly has been formulated to provide 250mg of cranberry extract per capsule.
