With aging comes different changes and developments in the human body. Part of which in women is menopause and in men, is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a nonmalignant (noncancerous) enlargement of the prostate gland. It is a very common occurrence in older men with a prevalence increase from 25% among men 40 to 49 years of age to more than 80% among men 70 to 79 years of age. It is mostly abbreviated as BPH.
The prostate gland is a small organ about the size of a walnut. It is found below the bladder (where urine is stored) and surrounds the urethra (tube that carries urine away from the bladder). The prostate makes a fluid that helps to nourish sperm as part of the semen (ejaculatory fluid).
In BPH, the prostate gland grows in size. It may compress the urethra which passes through the center of the prostate. This can impede the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra to the outside. It can cause urine to back up in the bladder (retention) leading to the need to urinate frequently during the day and night. Other common symptoms include;
– a slow flow of urine,
– the need to urinate urgently and
– difficulty starting the urinary stream.
More serious problems include urinary tract infections and complete blockage of the urethra, which may be a medical emergency and can lead to injury of the kidneys.
How is it diagnosed?
Usually a doctor can detect an enlarged prostate by rectal exam. The doctor also may examine the urethra, prostate, and bladder using a cytoscope, an instrument that is inserted through the penis.
There are drugs which can be used to prevent or combat early symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
One of the best is Prostatonin®, a natural solution for men over 40 who actively want to prevent and/or combat early symptoms of BPH.
Prostatonin® brings about a natural relief from the burden of early BPH symptoms without affecting a man’s sexual activity. It is thus, the first step to an improved quality of life.
Using Prostatonin® will help alleviate early symptoms of BPH so that:
• The bladder empties better
• The urge to urinate is less frequent
• The frequency of urinating, especially at night, is reduced (thereby improving the quality of sleep)
• The urinary stream becomes normal etc.
Unlike synthetic and hormonal drugs, which have a highly selective pharmacological action and show side effects in relation to sexual activity, plant based products such as Prostatonin® have a wider spectrum of action which works in a safe and effective way.
To date, Prostatonin® has shown a very low number of adverse effect.
• It contains two highly active plant extracts therefore natural and safe.
• It does not contain sugar and is safe for diabetics.
• It is suitable for long-term treatment.
One capsule contains:
300 mg UR 102 Urtica dioica extract
25 mg PY 102 Pygeum africanum extract
Note: BPH is completely benign. It is not a precursor (a forerunner) to prostate cancer.
