02 Oct Is his enlarged prostate killing the mood?
For men, aging gracefully, may come with a few downfalls, particularly those suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), more commonly known as ‘an enlarged prostate’.
Although BPH is not in itself a life-threatening condition, it can give rise to a number of inconvenient symptoms, which if severe enough, can affect a man’s health and quality of life, in and out of the bedroom.
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that is part of the male reproductive system, located inside the body between the bladder and urethra.
With age testosterone levels decrease, stimulating prostate growth. By 40, the prostate gland begins to enlarge as benign tissue cells multiply which leads to a narrowing of the urethra and bladder problems. Aside from surgery, no treatments can reduce the number of cells.
Symptoms of BPH include1:
- Feeling of urgency
- Frequent nighttime urination
- Weak urine stream
- Feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder
- Pain and burning sensation
- Difficulty getting or maintaining an erection
- Ejaculatory issues
- Low sex drive
- Sexual satisfaction
Until recently, it was unclear as to whether there was a direct link between urinary tract issues and sexual dysfunction in men 40+. However, clinical research has now proven that as urinary symptoms increase sexual function decreases.1
These results have called into question the recommendation of synthetic-chemical preparations, known to cause side effects such as loss of sexual drive and erectile dysfunction. But the good news is there is a clinically proven natural alternative.
Knowing is half the battle
While supplements are proven to be effective in improving erectile problems, they need to be taken regularly to re-establish and maintain the natural processes. These are not fast-acting remedies like Viagra, which you take only when you need it.2
A.Vogel’s Prostate 1, made from organic saw palmetto soothes prostate symptoms in a natural way and helps to regulate testosterone levels. It also acts against inflammatory alterations of the prostate and urethra. Accompanying swelling and irritation are reduced and thereby also the voiding problems.
A male libido study using A.Vogel’s Prostate 1 not only showed improvement on BPH symptoms but also the erectile and ejaculatory problems they often cause.
At the end of the trial the 18.8% suffering severe BPH symptoms had dropped to only 4.3%, while overall 66% reported enhanced erectile function and libido.3
With proven results of equal efficacy to synthetic products, such as finasteride, without the negative side-effects, A.Vogel’s Prostate 1 makes an excellent natural alternative for men suffering from BPH to help them feel and perform their best.
