Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-malignant enlargement of the prostate gland. The prostate is a small gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra in men. If the prostate enlarges, pressure may be put on the urethra, causes a variety of urinary symptoms, which include frequent urination during the day and at night, a weaker urine stream, as well as increased likelihood of dribbling. If the prostate enlarges too much, urination is difficult or impossible and the risk of urinary tract infection and kidney damage increases. A major contributing factor to BPH is the build of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the prostate gland, which accelerates after age 35-40.
A high potency multiple vitamin & mineral should contain boosted levels of key prostate antioxidants (Vitamin E, Selenium, Lycopene and Vitamin E), as well as zinc that are essential for the health of the prostate and for its protection against free radicals.
An essential fatty acid should contain the perfect combination of essential fatty acids to suppress the inflammatory process. These essential oils enable the body to produce optimal amounts of the anti-inflammatory Prostaglandin Series-1 and Series-3. These Prostaglandins also help slow down the rate of prostate cell division, which also helps to alleviate the problem.
A prostate support nutrients should contain the exact dosages and standardized grades of natural agents shown in medical research to reverse mild to moderate enlarged prostate conditions via its effects on blocking the build up of dihydrotestosterone in prostate cells and other effects.
Additional Supplement Considerations
