What is PCSPES Prostate Health Supplement?
PCSPES is a unique blend of 14 ingredients specifically designed to synergistically help the prostate. PCSPES stands for Prostate Cancer SPES (“Hope” in Latin). This uniquely blended formulation was designed by Dr. Eric Llewellyn, a nutritional pioneer who brought “Food State” nutrition in the form of supplements to the forefront of wellness in the UK nearly 40 years ago which forms the foundation of “Matrix Nutrients”. Dr. Llewellyn’s lifework and approach toward wellness has been founded upon a principle belief that quality and correct nutrition in diet are the cornerstones of health. Inspired and motivated to help those in dealing with cancer, he started initially creating this food state blend for the Bristol Cancer Help Center when it was just starting out in the late 70’s. With a desire to provide a pure and effective supplement to cancer patients, he developed a reputation for high standards in the food supplement industry with specialized nutritional programs and tailor-made diets that restored body’s back to wellness and even became part of the functional plan for many top athletes and Olympic Medal winners.
What makes this “Matrix Nutrients” so special?
“Matrix Nutrients” products are different than nearly all supplements available. With most supplements being synthetic, the nutrients are processed and created in an isolated form. When nutrients are synthetically isolated, the body does not easily recognize or absorb them. In “Real Food”, nutrients are not found by themselves, but rather are combined within a “food matrix” of many active ingredients. Much like nature, the unique “Matrix Nutrient” process in the PCSPES supplement integrates the high-quality ingredients and safeguards the delivery of the nutrients so as to be highly bioavailable, creating a synergy for optimized absorption by the body.
Why these ingredients for prostate heath?
Saw Palmetto is arguably one of the best and most studied fruits for alleviating benign prostate cancer and prostatitis. In a study looking at the individual efficacy of specific plants in addressing prostate cancer, Rabdosia Rubescens (70.8%), Scutellaria Biacalensis (66.5%) and Panax Pseudo Ginseng (80.9%) individually suppressed the growth of prostate cancer on their own and alleviated prostatitis. Resveratrol, a polyphenol with very powerful chemo-preventive properties and found in the skin of red grapes, has demonstrated that less is more in its association to other cancer drugs. Even smaller ingredients like Schizandra, a berry indigenous to China and used in TCM, provides an essential and uncommon characteristic of having 5 tastes and impacts nearly all organ systems within the body. All 14 ingredients serve in large and small ways to either inhibit tumor growth, minimize cancer proliferation or reduce inflammation, a significant contributor of prostate problems. It is unlikely a single element could account for the overall positive effects of PCSPES, but when all items are combined in this cooperative, powerful “Matrix Nutrient”, the synergistic benefits in this PCSPES supplement delivers a potent punch in supporting a healthy male prostate.
