Men: Night-time Bathroom Visits Keeping You Up? It May Be Your Prostate
Fellows, are you getting up more than a couple of times a night to pee?
Having difficulty getting the flow started (hesitancy), or feel like your bladder isn't emptying completely?
These are common signs of an enlarged prostate,* and are often associated with a condition called "benign prostatic hypertrophy" (BPH). BPH frequently occurs as a man gets older, due to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT).To help ease the symptoms of BPH (including disruptive night-time frequency), herbs such as Saw Palmetto, Nettle (root), Sarsaparilla, and Dong Quai have traditionally been used to reduce enlarged prostate. Nutrients including zinc (which concentrates in prostatic secretions about 500x more than in blood) and omega-3 fish oils will also help keep your prostate healthy.
