Prostate Profile

The prostate is a small gland in men that helps make semen. Located just below the bladder in front of the rectum, it wraps around the tube that carries urine and semen out of the body. It tends to grow larger as men get older. If the prostate gets too large, it can cause a number of health issues. The likelihood of getting prostate cancer may be affected by age, race, family history, diet, and physical activity level.

Take steps to promote healthy prostate function and reduce the risk of prostate cancer by making healthy lifestyle choices and completing the Prostate Health Lab Profile. It’s a proactive approach to prostate health, measuring the levels of essential nutrients in the body and providing valuable information to lead you toward the best health possible.
