As a man, you dread the thought of having prostate issues. You hear your friends talk about having to get up several times a night to use the restroom. You don’t want to go down that road, but are wondering what you can do about it.  We have good news! There is a natural way you can help your prostate say healthy.

The Prostate Gland

The prostate is a walnut sized gland located below the bladder, in front of the rectum and surrounds part of the urethra. As the prostate gland ages, it begins to swell and grow more than normal. Because the urethra travels through the prostate gland, this swelling and growth can cause a lot of problems for both a man’s urinary and sexual health.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

The most common problem men face in terms of prostate health is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is basically an enlarged prostate. BPH can lead to obstructive and irritative lower urinary tract symptoms. (1) Symptoms include frequent urination or urgency, difficulty urinating, dribbling, partial emptying of bladder, or urinary tract infections.

9 Reasons to Love Prostrate Pro

Dr. Hotze's Prostate Pro was designed to support all aspects of optimal prostate function in men.

1. Phytosterol Complex. Phytosterols like Beta Sitosterol are naturally occurring compounds found in plant cell membranes. They have been shown to improve urine flow and urinary symptoms.  (2) Generally, this is one of the ways a plant-based eating program helps relieve prostate pain, but this concentrated form of nutrition in Dr. Hotze’s Prostate Pro formula is targeted for relieving prostate symptoms. Phytosterols are also antioxidants that can help lower LDL cholesterol.

2. Saw Palmetto Extract. Saw Palmetto is a type of palm tree berry extract that has been used for centuries to support a healthy prostate. It works in several ways, some of which are thought to be its anti-androgenic, anti-estrogenic and anti-inflammatory effects. Saw palmetto can also help regulate hair growth and reduce acne.

3. Graminex G63 (flower pollen extract) has been shown to be effective to help reduce the size of an enlarged prostate from BHP. (3)  This specialized preparation of flower pollen extract contains many nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. Its effects are anti-inflammatory and anti-congestive. It works by interrupting the arachidonic acid cascade (which would normally produce inflammatory substances like prostaglandins).

4. Nettle Root Extract - One of the most commonly used herbal remedies is nettle, which causes anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, antiviral effects, modulating of immune system, and relieves the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia due to the compounds it contains such as phytosterols, lignans and polysaccharides. In a clinical trial, 287 BPH patients who had been treated with nettle (Urtica dioica) showed significant reduction in their International Prostate Symptom Score, serum PSA and prostate size. (4)

5. Pumpkin Seed Extract. You may have heard that pumpkin is good for men’s health. It’s good for anyone’s health, but the extract is particularly great for men’s health. Pumpkin seed has been shown to decrease international prostate symptom scores within 3 months of taking it. (5)

6. Pygeum Bark Extract. Pygeum is an herbal extract taken from the bark of the African cherry tree. The pharmacologic use of plants and herbs for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms associated with BPH has been growing steadily. The extract of the African prune tree, Pygeum africanum, is one of the several phytotherapeutic agents available for the treatment of BPH. (1)

7. Boswellia Serrata is a medium to large branching tree found in the dry, mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Its gum extract has been used for centuries as a potent antioxidant with many benefits. This includes lowering inflammation that can cause prostate pain. 

Research demonstrated that acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid (AKBA), an active component from an Ayurvedic medicinal plant (Boswellia serrata), could strongly inhibit tumor angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. Findings suggest that it potently inhibits human prostate tumor growth through inhibition of angiogenesis. (6)

8. Lycopene, a naturally occurring red carotenoid pigment found in tomatoes, pink grapefruit, watermelon, papaya, guava, and other fruits, has been extensively studied for more than 70 years, with more than 2000 articles published in peer-reviewed journals and 4000 other publications written on the subject. 

Epidemiological research indicates that diets rich in fruits and vegetables are associated with a decreased risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. It is estimated that approximately 50% of cancer cases and 35% of cancer deaths in the United States can be attributed to poor diet. Research studies have associated tomato consumption with a decreased risk of prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease. (7)

9. Boron, an essential trace mineral, is a micronutrient with diverse and vitally important roles in metabolism that render it necessary for plant, animal, and human health. Research demonstrates that boron beneficially impacts the body’s use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D; has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers, and multiple and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
