OPTIMUM PROSTATE HEALTH
What’s keeping your Man awake at night?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the enlargement of the prostate gland. BPH generally begins in a man in his 30s, evolves slowly and only causes symptoms after 50. Half of all men over 50 develop BPH, although only 10% required surgical intervention to treat.
As the prostate swells it places immense pressure on the urethra resulting in bladder and urinary problems including painful urination, difficulty starting or stopping the flow, and increased nighttime urination and this could be the reason keeping your man awake after dark. As the prostate gland grows over time, it can press on the urethra and cause one or more of these symptoms:
The Science behind Saw Palmetto
Saw palmetto is an extract of the fruit of Serenoa repens. It is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols, and has shown promising results in the treatment of BPH.
There are several recognized factors that may contribute to the development of BPH. First, functioning testes and a critical level of androgens are essential to the development of BPH. Second, a change in prostatic androgen metabolism occurs that favors the accumulation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and third, an increase in the ratio of plasma estrogens to androgens.
Recent clinical research appears to have proven that Saw Palmetto extract is beneficial in BPH. Its mechanism of action in the treatment of BPH is reported that Saw Palmetto inhibits the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the agent thought to be responsible for the enlargement of the prostrate. In addition Saw Palmetto extract inhibits the binding of DHT to receptors thus blocking its action. It has also been shown to have an inhibitory effect both on androgen and estrogen nuclear receptors. This is accomplished without interfering with testosterone, follicle-stimulating hormone, or luteinizing hormone levels. Most importantly, Saw Palmetto does not affect PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) levels, thus it does not mask the ability of PSA tests to detect cancer.
In a recent study that compared the effectiveness of saw palmetto with one of the leading prescription drugs for BPH. Nearly 90% of participants using saw palmetto had measurable improvement after six weeks of use. The prescription drug produced results in less than 50% of participants. In addition, the prescription drug required up to six months to reach maximum effectiveness. A summary of twenty-four European trials conducted since the early 1960s revealed similar results. Over 3,000 men were studied and those using saw palmetto experienced a 28% improvement in urinary tract symptoms, a 24% increase in peak urine flow, and 43% overall improvement.
