What is it? ENOTprost is the new extract of Epilobium angustifolium L. standardized to contain 15% Oenothein B, one of the most active compounds of this plant!
The botanical species is certified by the DNA barcoding analysis.
Why should I use it? Its effects are prostate-specific: anti-inflammatory and antioxidant! The inflammation and oxidative stress should be fought and controlled as they are risk factors for the development and cronicity of prostatic problems: the most common is the inflammation (prostatitis), as well as the benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and cancer (prostatic adenocarcinoma).
Who can use it? Subjects with higher risk are men aged 50 and over, although prostatitis can also affect young people, especially sportsmen and cyclists.

Omeolipid is an association of Artichoke (Cynara scolymus L.), Caihua (Cyclanthera pedata (L.) Schrad.) and Fenu greek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)
that can be used in food supplements.
Omeolipid combines the traditions of three different countries:
Artichoke is a Mediterranean plant; its cultivation in Europe dates back to ancient Greece and Rome. Its active substances (caffeoylquinic acids, flavonoids, sesquiterpene lactones) are concentrated in the leaf, acting as digestive, colagougue, hepatoprotective and depurative.
Caihua is a traditional plant from South America; the fruit contains flavonoids and in Peru its use is documented since 3700 b.C. as hypothensive, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and hypocholesterolemic.
Fenu greek is a milestone of the Ayurvedic medicine, alleviating kapha and vata. The seeds contain saponines, coumarines, flavonoids and alkaloids. They have hypocholesterolemic, diuretic, diaphoretic, carminative, hypoglycemic, demulcent properties and they are traditionally used to treat obesity and diabetes.
