Prostex Prostate Health Formula is an amino acid combination to support prostate health and promote urine flow. For most men over 40, concerns about prostate health and normal urinary function are a part of life. Many common prostate conditions cause urinary problems that can directly impact an active lifestyle.
PROSTEX is a standardized nutritional formula of amino acids that has been proven in independent clinical studies to promote prostate health and normal urinary function*.
PROSTEX has been sold for decades and has helped thousands of men to maintain healthy, normal urine flow and prostate function*.

What are Amino Acids?
Amino acids are the chemical building blocks of life, and occur naturally in our bodies and in the foods we eat. Our bodies break down dietary proteins into amino acids, and then reassemble these amino acids into new structures that are essential to the formation of muscles, bones, glands, and organs. Amino acids are necessary for the manufacture of genes, hormones, and neurotransmitters, and are also required in order for vitamins and minerals to be utilized properly.
Essential amino acids are not manufactured by the body, and must be obtained from the foods we eat. Nonessential amino acids are just as important to our bodies as essential amino acids, but are manufactured by our bodies from proteins found in our diet.
Which Amino Acids are contained in PROSTEX?
PROSTEX is a special blend of the nonessential amino acids glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid.
Glycine is one of the most important amino acids, and is utilized by the liver in the synthesis of other nonessential amino acids. In addition to its importance for healthy prostate function, glycine plays important roles in the immune system, nervous system, and in the functions of the liver and circulatory system.
Alanine is one of the simplest of the amino acids, and plays an important role in the breakdown of glucose in the body. It also plays an important role in preventing the buildup of toxic products in muscle cells.
Glutamic Acid is used by the body in the synthesis of several other amino acids, and is important for healthy nervous system and brain function. It also plays an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
Is PROSTEX a standardized formula?
Yes. PROSTEX is a standardized formula, and is manufactured according to Current Good Manufacturing Practices as established through FDA regulations for pharmaceutical and health products.
When and where were independent clinical studies performed?
In 1958, a group of doctors performed a controlled clinical study using the amino acid formula in PROSTEX. In 1962, another group of doctors performed a more comprehensive study confirming the results of the 1958 study. The same amino acid formula has benefited thousands of men in the decades since.
What results were experienced by the patients in the studies?
In both studies, a large percentage of the patients taking amino acid therapy experienced significant relief from prostate-related urinary symptoms including increased frequency, urgency, nighttime frequency, and decreased flow.
How do I take PROSTEX?
Suggested use is two capsules three times daily. In the clinical studies, relief was experienced as long as therapy was continued, but symptoms recurred once the patients stopped taking the product.
When can I expect to see results?
As with most dietary supplements, regular use is suggested for best results. And, though individual results may vary, studies indicate that optimal benefits are achieved after taking PROSTEX for 90 days with continuous uninterrupted use.*
