Natural Tips for Prostate Health
The conventional approach to prostate health is deeply flawed. If you go to your doctor complaining about having to "go" all the time or difficulties in the bedroom, he or she will likely prescribe a drug that may help ease some of your symptoms, but comes with some seriously disturbing side effects. In fact, the FDA recently warned that these drugs actually increase your risk of developing prostate cancer.
However, a natural solution can end frequent bathroom trips, improve your sex life and keep your prostate healthy for life. It's a myth however that this is an unavoidable part of aging for men.
It's a well-known fact that many of us men take a passive approach to our health. Maybe it's our "tough guy" attitude, or perhaps we're just busy. But way too often, we tend to ignore minor health issues until they become major problems. This is especially true when it comes to prostate health.
If you've looked into natural ways to support your prostate health, you've no doubt come across saw palmetto. This extensively studied prostate supporter is derived from the berries of the saw palmetto plant. Saw palmetto is a godsend when it comes to prostate health because it is scientifically proven to inhibit both 5-alpha reductase and aromatase, blocking the production of both DHT and estrogen.
Saw Palmetto: More than just for prostate health saw palmetto has been used for a multitude of issues such as low sperm count, hair loss, bronchitis, diabetes, inflammation, migraine, and prostate cancer. It is also used to help aging muscles that tend to lose suppleness and vigor. When saw palmetto is used regularly, muscles plump up. For these reasons and more, you'll find this fruit as one of the key ingredients in my Prostate tea, but not the only herbs as it is best taken with other herbs.
Additionally, Ayurveda has effective herbs for either or inflamed prostate or swelling but these are best prepared on a case-by-case basis.
