Best Supplements for Prostate Health

Filed Under: Men's Health,Supplements at 9:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Prostate health is an important subject for men over 40, the average age when men normally start having prostate problems such as prostate infection, BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), and prostatitis. These problems are caused by an enlarged prostate and common symptoms include urination problems, lower back pain, dysuria, and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Additionally, preventive measures may help reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

A recent Italian study concluded that saw palmetto definitely has a positive impact on the symptoms of those who are suffering from BPH. Italian researchers found that prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels showed a stabilizing or downward trend with regular use of saw palmetto. Measuring PSA levels helps indicate potential prostate problems, such as BPH. Overall there was also a substantial decrease in the amount of patients presenting severe prostatic symptoms with the use of saw palmetto. Researchers concluded that saw palmetto could help in treating the side effects of BPH.

However, saw palmetto is not alone as you can quickly list other natural supplements designed to improve overall health of the prostate gland and also decrease the risk of the development of prostate disorders. Herbs such as nettel root, pygeum, lycopene, red clover, and green tea (EGCG) have also shown positives results in studies to support prostate health. Nettle root is an effective natural supplement for prostate health as regular supplementation reduces obstruction of urinary flow. Pygeum improves urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. Found in tomatoes, Lycopene contains powerful antioxidants and is a natural solution for prostate health. Red clover contains an antioxidant that fights cancerous growth and inhibits DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) formation. Lastly, green tea (EGCG) may prevent prostate cancer by acting as a natural inhibitor of an enlarged prostate.
