Enlarged Prostate

An enlarged prostate is one of the more common findings in routine physical exams, particularly in those males over forty. Surprisingly, an enlarged prostate may produce no symptoms. Many physicians will, however, recommend an over-the-counter nutritional supplement to return an enlarged prostate to its usual size.

 

BP-Qmax is a nutraceutical formulation that contains several natural ingredients, including Saw Palmetto and Beta-Sitosterol, which have been clinically-proven to address the urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. The nutraceuticals in BP-Qmax are also noted for their lack of side effects such as gastrointestinal disturbances. If such side effects do occur, they can usually be alleviated by taking BP-Qmax with meals.

 

Although it has more of an indirect affect on an enlarged prostate, Omega-Core is a nutraceutical that contains the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. These substances act as antioxidants, help repair inflammation, lower circulating bad cholesterol, and are necessary for normal function of the cell membrane. Omega-Core would thus help to reduce symptoms such as the irritation and inflammation that often contributes to an enlarged prostate.

 

An enlarged prostate may also contribute to erectile dysfunction. While taking a formulation similar to BP-Qmax, many men will also their sexual health issues by taking a medically proven product such as TriverexTM MD to enhance sexual performance. As is the case with every product mentioned in this post, TriverexTMMD contains only natural ingredients, all of which are known to be clinically beneficial in improving sexual health.

 

Since research continues to show that heart healthy changes are the most effective ways to stop prostate problems like enlarged prostate, many men have also turned to natural products that have been shown to lower bad cholesterol levels and to improve heart function. All-Lipor-Ol is a nutraceutical formulation of niacin and red yeast rice to lower bad cholesterol, either alone or in conjunction with a prescribed medicine in the “statin” family.

 

All bad cholesterol-lowering substances work by impeding the liver’s metabolism of fats into cholesterol. A potential side effect of any cholesterol-lowering product, prescribed or nutraceutical, is a reduction in the liver’s ability to produce a substance known as Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ-10), an enzyme that is vital for energy production inside the cells. All-Lipor-Ol also contains its own supply of CoQ-10 that has been produced from natural sources and is thus readily available for transport to the body’s cells.

 

To wrap things up, there are a number of nutraceutical and dietary supplement products available for addressing the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. Furthermore, there are a number of products that, beyond addressing the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate, will benefit the body’s overall health.

Nutraceuticals for Prostatitis Treatment *

Since the symptoms of prostatitis, and the use of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals for Prostatitis treatment * are discussed in other posts on this blog, this posting will devote itself to reviewing two products, both known to be effective in addressing the aggravating symptoms requiring Prostatitis Treatment *.  This post will then introduce two products that should be of interest to men over the age of forty regardless of their Prostatitis Treatment * status.

 

Prosta-Q contains a proprietary blend of five nutraceuticals that, by themselves, have been demonstrated to effectively address the symptoms relating to inflammation requiring Prostatitis Treatment *. Considering that most nutraceutical preparations, or even prescription medications for Prostatitis Treatment *, contain only one or two active compounds, it is obvious that Prosta-Q gives those looking for a natural anti-inflammatory as a  Prostatitis Treatment * a greater “dose to dollar” benefit.

 

Q-Urol is another mixture that can effectively address the aggravating symptoms requiring Prostatitis Treatment *. It is a tableted, time-released formulation that contains the same proprietary combination of quercetin, bromelain and papain found in Prosta-Q, but also contains the addition of Pollen Extract, which is known for its anti-inflammatory effects on multiple organs and tissues, including the prostate..

 

Although it does not specifically target the prostate gland, Omega-Core has a supportive role in alleviating the symptoms requiring Prostatitis Treatment *. Omega-Core contains one of the highest concentrations of the essential Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that can be found over-the-counter, which are incorporated into the cell membrane of every cell in the body. In addition to maintaining healthy cell walls in the prostate, the active agents of Omega-Core also lead to better function of nerve cells throughout the body. And, as a “bonus effect,” the Omega 3 fatty acids are known to lower bad cholesterol levels in the bloodstream!

 

All-Liper-Ol is another formulation that has more of an indirect role in Prostatitis Treatment *.  Research continues to show that heart healthy changes are the most effective ways to stop prostate problems. This product should also be of interest to everyone over the age of 40 with an enlarged prostate, whether they are undergoing Prostatitis Treatment * or not. All-Liper-Ol contains a mixture of two highly effective cholesterol reducing nutraceuticals, niacin and red yeast rice extract. It also contains a substance called Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ-10), which is found in every cell in the body. CoQ-10 is essential to the production of the energy that powers each cell and is found in higher concentrations in heart muscle.

 

In closing, Prosta-Q and Q-Urol are two nutraceuticals effective in addressing the aggravating symptoms requiring Prostatitis Treatment *. In addition to these nutraceutical formulations, men over the age of forty or with a history of elevated bad-cholesterol levels should strongly consider nutritional supplements such as Omega-Core and All-Liper-Ol, both of which contain nutraceuticals that are known to lower the body’s bad cholesterol levels  and support the  health of those seeking relief from symptoms requiring Prostatitis Treatment *.

CPPS (Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome)

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, or CPPS, is a condition that is marked by cycles of increasing and decreasing pain in the lower pelvis/bladder/rectum in the absence of chronic bacterial prostatitis or chronic bacterial cystitis. The pain associated with CPPS may radiate from the floor of the pelvis into the rectal area or lower back and can range in intensity from mild to temporarily incapacitating. Chronic fatigue and male sexual dysfunction are frequently component of CPPS, with painful ejaculation and erectile dysfunction being frequent complaints.

 

The cause of CPPS is not fully understood, but autoimmune, neurological, and hormonal factors may be significant contributors.  Treatment* of CPPS has traditionally been limited to pain management, psychotherapy directed at any co-existing psychological disorders (e.g. anxiety/panic disorders) and prescription medications such as an antidepressant (amitriptyline), NSAID (ibuprofen), gabapentin (Neurontin), or even one of the minor tranquilizers. In those cases where conventional medical therapy fails to control the symptoms of CPPS, there are several nutraceutical preparations that may prove to be effective. Two such tested and proven products are Prosta-Q and Q-Urol.

 

Prosta-Q is a combination of several natural remedies, including saw palmetto and Quercetin, that have been shown to be effective for bladder/prostate problems. Q-Urol is an extra-strength, timed-release formulation of Prosta-Q but with the addition of pollen extract, which may counter the urinary tract inflammation associated with CPPS.

 

In addition to these products, several additional products indirectly address CPPS by promoting overall bodily health at the systemic level.

 

Omega-Core contains the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, both of which are essential to normal nerve function in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. These same fatty acids may also address the inflammation that may contribute to the progression of issues such as CPPS.

 

All-Lipor-Ol features two compounds, Red Yeast Rice and CoEnzyme Q-10, that are known to improve good cholesterol levels and, in the case of CoEnzyme Q-10, functions as a critical component of energy production in the body’s cells. Combining Omega-Core and All-Lipor-Ol may lead to maintaining proper cholesterol levels while helping to address the fatigue component of CPPS.

 

TriverexTM MD is a nutraceutical preparation that incorporates several natural substances that are known to improve male sexual health by improving arterial blood flow into the penis, which can lead to longer and stronger erections as well as targeting mood (improving the psychological outlook toward the sexual experience).

 

Summing up for this post, CPPS causes both chronic pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction in males. Although the cause of CPPS is not well-understood, there are several natural products that have been clinically shown to help address various symptoms that are associated with this form of prostate dysfunction and inflammation.
