Chronic Prostatitis

The term Prostatitis is generally used to refer to the infection of the prostate although it may also manifest itself in the form of an inflammation that does not show any sign of infection. Inflammatory prostatitis, or Chronic Prostatitis, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome accounts for over 90% of those diagnosed with prostatitis.

Chronic Prostatitis is a type of prostatitis that does not seem to go away. The term Chronic Prostatitis is often used when the condition lasts for over three months.

 

The following nutraceuticals are recommended for addressing the symptoms associated with Chronic Prostatitis because they use ingredients that have passed scientific tests.

 

Prosta-Q

 

This nutritional supplement contains a patent-pending formula of active ingredients that address the symptoms associated with Chronic Prostatitis by maintaining proper health of the prostate and by effectively targeting the pain and quality of life scores associated with Chronic Prostatitis. The ingredients particularly address symptoms such as genital and pelvic discomfort.

 

The ingredients include Zinc, Quercetin – an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, – as well as bromelain and papain which improve absorption of the actives and digestion.  Prosta-Q is, a proprietary formula that multiple clinical trials have concluded that it helps address the symptoms associated with Chronic Prostatitis.

 

Q-Urol

 

Physicians in different parts of the world recommend this supplement because it is a time-release tableted version of Prosta-Q, which increases blood levels, and includes the addition of a special form of pollen extract that has been scientifically proven to maintain the integrity and health of the prostate.  This helps address inflammation, the key symptom associated with Chronic Prostatitis.

 

Omega-Core

 

This is a complex made of Omega-3 fish oil that helps in maintaining proper cholesterol levels and metabolic balance in addition to supporting healthy weight. It contains high concentrations of four Omega-3 fatty acids with each pill having over 900 mg of the active Omega 3 fatty acids, three times more than that found in dietary grade fish oil.

 

Since research continues to show that heart healthy changes are the most effective ways to stop prostate problems, it addresses complications associated with Chronic Prostatitis.

 

TriverexTM MD

 

This nutraceutical contains powerful phytotherapeutic agents that support and maintain sexual health, which often can be associated with Chronic Prostatitis.

 

TriverexTM MD is an over-the-counter supplement; however, Farr Laboratories requires that a healthcare practitioner provide a recommendation for use in order to address male sexual health and the sexual symptoms associated with Chronic Prostatitis. No serious side effects have been reported.

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 *.

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, also known as Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a poorly-understood disorder that can affect males of practically any age or socioeconomic status. Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is a “diagnosis of exclusion,” meaning that all other possible causes of the patient’s pain must be ruled out before the diagnosis is made. Conditions that must be excluded include:

 

* chronic bacterial and/or non-bacterial prostatitis

*  bacterial, non-bacterial, or interstitial cystitis

* pelvic floor abscess/mass

* urethral stricture

* bladder neck hypertrophy

 

The hallmark, or “classic” marker of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is pelvic or genitourinary pain that persists for three months or longer and, as mentioned above, a definite physical cause for that pain cannot be identified.  There are suggestions, however, that multiple factors such as nervous system irritation due to an unknown agent may play a role in this condition. Symptoms of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome may include:

 

* constant burning sensation in the penis or on urination

* pain radiating into the back or rectum

* unexplained fatigue

* depression

* pain immediately after ejaculation

* erectile dysfunction

 

Since the cause of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is poorly understood, it is reasonable to understand why no consistently-effective treatment* has been found. Fortunately, there are several nutraceutical preparations that may be helpful.

 

Q-Urol

 

Q-Urol may prove helpful in addressing the symptoms associated with inflammation leading to Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome since it is a special formulation of Prosta-Q (below) that has been fortified with Pollen Extract as an anti-inflammatory agent.

 

Prosta-Q

 

Prosta-Q is a formulation of several nutraceuticals that have been shown to help address the intensity of symptoms associated with Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

 

Omega-Core

 

The Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) found in Omega-Core are essential to maintaining the normal function of cell membranes such as those of nerve cells. As such, Omega-3s may be helpful in maintaining normal nervous system performance in Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. As a bonus, Omega-3s are proven to lower the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood stream.

 

TriverexTM MD

 

Sexual dysfunction is frequently reported to occur in Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. The phytochemicals/nutraceuticals in TriverexTM  MD are among the most popular and clinically proven ways to address male sexual health.

 

To summarize, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome in which pain that is strongly suggestive of chronic prostatitis or urinary tract infection is present although no physical evidence of those conditions is to be found. Although the symptoms associated with this baffling condition are difficult to manage, there are a number of phytochemical/nutraceuticals preparations that are available that may help address the symptoms associated with Chronic Pelvic pain Syndrome.

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.
