Improve Prostate Greater independence in your own home Health Naturally! The prostate is a small walnut shaped male organ located beneath the urinary bladder and wrapped around the urethra or urinary tube. It is of little significance for most men until the late 40’s when for a large percentage of men it tends to enlarge and affect normal urination by restricting flow through the urethra. This condition is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH. BPH reduces the ability of the bladder to evacuate completely causing common symptoms like wanting to urinate more frequently (especially annoying at night and as it affects sleep quality), difficulty starting urination, dribbling after urination and pain with urination. The word benign in BPH is very significant as it means an enlargement of the prostate that isn’t cancer. However BPH should always be diagnosed by a M.D., as there is always the chance of prostate cancer. Once diagnosed as BPH it can often be managed quite well with herbal and nutritional remedies and without the side effects of prescription drugs used for this condition. Saw Palmetto is a herb that has been used for centuries for BPH of the prostate.

A review of 18 doubleblinded studies found an average improvement of 72% of BPH symptoms in Saw Palmetto users. Researchers have found Saw Palmetto to inhibit the formation of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and DHT is the main reason for the prostate to enlarge, and to be a risk factor for prostate cancer and hair loss. Phellodendron amurense inner bark is another herb that has been found to protect against BPH and recent research has shown it to be protective against prostate tumor development in laboratory studies. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant with numerous health benefits including cancer and BPH protective benefits. Fatty acids from the seeds of Pumpkin, Evening Primrose and Flax have been shown to be supportive of prostate and general good health.
