PROSTA-BLOC ESSENTIALS (NEW FORMULATION)-DOSAGE IS NOW 4 CAPSULES A DAY (PREVIOUS DOSE WAS 6) Prosta-Bloc is formulated with natural ingredients, like turmeric, skullcap and bee propolis, that have been selected to help maintain a normal inflammatory balance. We are always reviewing the latest scientific research so we can continue to deliver products that get results to our customers. Recently, new turmeric research with significant clinical implications caught our attention. It is well-known that turmeric, specifically curcumin, the primary standardized compound of turmeric, is poorly absorbed in the GI tract. Exciting new research shows the non-curcuminoid compounds of turmeric interact with the gut microbiota and play a key role in turmeric’s clinical benefits. As the research demonstrates, the gut microbiota may be the primary target of turmeric and all its compounds. We are pleased to announce that Prosta-Bloc will now contain our new turmeric raw material, Complete Turmeric Matrix (CTM), which contains 45-55% curcuminoids, 3-8% volatile oils, and 2-6% turmerin protein for improved clinical efficacy for even better patient results. We have updated the new formula to contain 1 g turmeric root extract per serving (now four  capsules). To accommodate this, we have removed the pollen extract from the formula and updated the Chinese skullcap root and bee propolis to 950 mg each per serving. OVERVIEW Inflammation is a natural part of the body’s immune response, a cascade triggered to protect the body and maintain normal tissue repair. This physiological response is part of the innate immune or non-specific immune system, a first line of defense comprising the cells and mechanisms that defend against unwanted organisms in a non-specific manner. The inflammatory cascade is mediated by eicosanoids which have been shown to attenuate inflammation and immune-modulating cytokines. Prosta-Bloc provides a blend of nutrients to maintain normal inflammatory balance, helping to adjust eicosanoid and cytokine metabolism and inhibit the synthesis of a wide variety of compounds implicated in pain and inflammation. Prosta-Bloc is formulated with natural ingredients, like turmeric, skullcap and bee propolis, that have been selected to help maintain a normal inflammatory response and support optimal gastrointestinal health. Suggested Use: 4 capsules per day in divided doses or as recommended by your health care professional. INGREDIENT BENEFITS Turmeric (Complete Turmeric Matrix) New research on turmeric shows the additional bioactives in turmeric have additional health benefits. Prosta-Bloc leverages the power of the Complete Turmeric Matrix which includes compounds from the entire turmeric root, all working together as nature intended to deliver better results. The Complete Turmeric Matrix formulation contains standardized amounts of 45%–55% curcuminoids, 2%-6% turmerin protein and 3%-8% volatile oil, plus other components that make up the whole turmeric root. This matrix of bioactive compounds supports a healthy GI tract, creates a healthy microbiome, and helps maintain normal inflammatory balance. Skullcap An extract of the root of Scutellaria baicalensis, this popular Chinese botanical has been shown to modulate viral activity and support immune health. Skullcap possesses potent antioxidant properties, and research has shown it attenuates NFkB and inhibits COX-2 expression. According to a recent study, it boosts immune response to certain pathogens and supports normal respiration by protecting airways and preserving normal mitochondrial function. Propolis Bees create propolis by collecting a resinous sap from trees and then mixing it with wax within the hive. Propolis has a diverse variety of potent terpenes and benzoic, caffeic, cinnamic, and phenolic acids. It is also high in flavonoids, which may account for many of its health benefits.
