We all know what happens when the garden hose gets crimped when we're trying to water the lawn or garden. It's irritating to have to go back to the source of the kink and get the force and flow going again. Well, BPH (or benign prostate hyperplasia,) is much more irritating to the man who needs his plumbing to work properly. The walnut-sized prostate gland gets enlarged due to inflammation and pinches the "hose." Men who suffer from this problem want a way to ease that inflammation and reduce the gland to its normal size. The ingredient, saw palmetto, has practically become synonymous to prostate health. Yet, there are so many products containing saw palmetto, it's hard to know what product is best.
Dr. Oz can give us a clue here. He says, "The supplement saw palmetto has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy, which causes men to get up several times a night to urinate. Just make sure you use a saw palmetto supplement that contains the ingredient beta sitosterol-the substance correlated with decreased prostate swelling. Half of the saw palmetto products on the market don't contain any. Take 160 mg twice a day."
Valley Naturals carries the outstanding product called Prosta-Response by Source Naturals. It not only has 711 mg of saw palmetto, (providing 320 mg fatty acids), but also clinically researched amounts of beta sitosterol. Add in hormone modulating co-factors that have a key role in prostate function, plus immune factors and bladder/urinary health compounds, and you have an outstanding prostate formula. The company has a Bio-Aligned Chart from their website, where you can see how all the ingredients work together to align the body. It's quite impressive!
But what if your symptoms are just mild ones right now? Dr. Murray says, "Even if symptoms of BPH are quite mild, it is still important to treat them. Early treatment, especially with natural approaches, will produce better results. If left untreated, BPH can eventually obstruct the bladder outlet, resulting in urine retention and, eventually, kidney damage. As this situation is potentially life threatening, proper treatment is crucial."
If you or someone you love is having symptoms, try Prostra-Response. Dr. Murray says, "90 percent of men who have mild to moderate BPH experience some improvement in symptoms during the first four to six weeks of therapy. All major symptoms of BPH have been relieved, especially nighttime urinary frequency." In order to get four weeks of therapy from Prosta-Response, you would need two bottles. Let BPH be a past irritant and danger! Ellen
