Manage Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Naturally

December 18, 2014

Benign prostatic hyperplasia commonly affects men over 40 and involves enlargement of the prostate gland. It is called "benign" because it is not cancerous and rarely causes health issues necessitating hospitalization or surgery.
Symptoms of BPH

Frequent need to urinate/problems trying to start urinating
Urine streams that start and stop/dribbling excessively when trying to end urination
Feeling like the bladder is never empty
Recurring urinary tract infections
Inability to urinate or blood in the urine (less common)

These symptoms may also indicate other conditions, such as prostatitis, urethral stricture, kidney/bladder stones or neurological issues with bladder control. Only a physician can accurately diagnose benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Why Men Suffer BPH
Largely the result of hormone fluctuations due to aging, BPH occurs as men experience reduced levels of testosterone and increased levels of estrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and prolactin. These changes combined produce elevated concentrations of testosterone in the prostate, which promotes conversion of excess testosterone to another hormone called DHT, or dihydrotestosterone. DHT not only contributes heavily to BPH but also plays a role in male pattern baldness.
Treat BPH Naturally with BioNatures Prosta Care Plus
Medications prescribed by doctors for treating BPH are problematic because they may take several weeks to alleviate symptoms and do not work for all men. For example, alpha-blockers cannot stop the prostate from enlarging and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors typically take six months or more before they show effects on symptoms, if any. PDE-5 inhibitors such as Cialis, are sometimes prescribed for BPH but are primarily intended for erectile dysfunction and may produce adverse side effects in some men.
Saw Palmetto
Bionatures Prosta Care Plus uses a combination of natural nutrients proven to support prostate health and functioning without causing unwanted side effects. For example, Bionatures Prosta Care Plus contains a powerful phytonutrient called saw palmetto that has shown to be effective at relieving symptoms of BPH in research studies. Saw palmetto works as a diuretic to increase urine flow by shrinking the inner lining of the prostate. Once this lining is no longer putting pressure on urinary tract tubes responsible for eliminating urine from the body, men with BPH are able to urinate more quickly and completely.
Flaxseed
Bionatures Prosta Care Plus also uses flaxseed, a substance providing rich amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and ALA, (alpha-linolenic acid), a nutrient crucial to regulating blood pressure and dilating blood vessels. Omega-3 FAs exhibit anti-inflammatory effects on the prostate gland that reduces swelling, facilitates urine flow and allows men to empty their bladder completely.
Flaxseed also contains phytoestrogens called lignans which are converted into enterolactone and enterodiol in the intestines. These two substances have been researched and found to have beneficial effects on BPH as well as various prostate cancer conditions.
Pumpkin Seed Extract
Pumpkin seed compounds exert diuretic effects that effectively relieve symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Phytoesterols found in pumpkin seeds not only help shrink enlarged prostates but may also inhibit conversion of testosterone into DHT. A double-blind study comparing pumpkin seed extract with a placebo found that men who took pumpkin seed extract experienced significant improvement with urinary flow and reduced frequency of urination.
Juniper Berry
Bionatures Prosta Care Plus includes juniper berry extract in its formula because of its antiflammatory and diuretic properties. Rich in flavenoids and tannins that have powerful antioxidant properties, juniper berries not only promote easy urine flow but also stimulate kidney and bladder functioning to help eliminate excess fluid from the body.
Pygeum
Found in the bark of the African plum tree, Pygeum africanum is a natural remedy for bladder and urinary tract problems that also helps shrink enlarged prostates to relieve nighttime urination and poor urine flow. Research results suggest that when pygeum is used to treat BPH, it can effectively reduce swelling of the bladder lining to facilitate urine flow while inhibiting signaling of fibroblast growth factor, a chemical that plays an important role in hormone activity.
