While men are concerned about their health, they typically aren’t as informed as women on health matters. In fact, according to a recent survey, 89% of men weren’t sure where their prostate gland was, while 69% didn’t have a clue about its purpose or importance.
Luckily, women are much more informed about the need to maintain breast health, and can play an active role in helping the men in their lives proactively manage the corresponding issue of prostate health.
As we age the prostate seems to become more prone to enlargement and, in some, cases even prostate cancer. The normal situation is that the prostate enlarges with age and we see evidence of this in a weakened stream when we pass urine.
This can be accompanied by a “full” feeling in the lower groin. Don’t leave it!
There are many natural remedies which seem to alleviate this condition and help to prevent more serious problems later.
In fact it is a good idea for men over the age of 50 to have an annual prostate check with your GP. Its not an altogether pleasant experience as the physical check still seems to be the most reliable means of running this check. Doing this may save a great deal of trouble in later life.
One of the herbs with a great reputation for maintaining prostate health is Saw Palmetto. One of the constituents of this herb is Beta Sitosterol. There is a tremendous amount of anecdotal evidence for its effectiveness.
I have used the product myself, and on patients and I must say I derived benefits in terms of increased comfort and easier urination.
Schiff Prostate Health Formula – Saw Palmetto, Lycopene & Selenium – with Zinc is an excellent formula which I highly recommend. I would love to have some feedback on any successes with it – or disappointments! I’m pretty sure you will be happy with the results.
Lycopene is found in tomatoes and Selenium is an important mineral. Its the combination of such remedies that make some of the products more effective than others.
Wait until you see some of the customer reviews on Amazon! By the way there is some evidence that it might decease your risk of prostate cancer.
