Herbal Relief For Prostate Troubles
As men grow older, the balance of hormones in a man's body begins to shift. Testosterone is converted into a more powerful form known as dihydrotestosterone of DHT. The balance between estrogen and testosterone in a man's body also begins to shift. This can result in a swelling or the prostate gland, a chestnut shaped gland under the bladder that surrounds the urethra (the tube which transports urine to the penis).
Known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, the condition results in a lessening of the force and volume in the flow of urine. It can cause difficulty starting the urine stream and dribbling after urination. It may also cause burning sensations during urination. Often the condition results in the need to wake up and urinate at night.
Because prostate cancer can cause similar conditions, it is important to check with a healthcare profession when a man suffers from these symptoms to ensure nothing more serious is occurring. Medical strategies for treatment of this condition include alpha-adrenergic drugs which relax the tissue around the prostate or finasteride drugs (Proscar) which inhibits male hormone production. Surgical procedures are also employed.
Fortunately, there are some very safe herbal remedies for BPH that will work on the majority of cases. Several of these herbs have been combined to create Men's Formulais a blend that has proven effective for many males suffering from BPH. This combination can also be effective for prostatitis and urinary tract infections.
Following is a brief summary of the benefits of the herbs and minerals found in this blend.
