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.


 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.


 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.


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.

Do you feel some pain around your abdomen or bladder? Then you may be suffering from Interstitial Cystitis, which is more prevalent in females. Interstitial Cystitis causes a variety of symptoms from one patient to another but many patients experience frequent and urgent urges to urinate. Women may experience pain during sexual intercourse and their symptoms tend to worsen during their menstrual periods.

 Other symptoms associated with Interstitial Cystitis include intense pain, tenderness, pressure or some discomfort in the pelvic area or bladder. The intensity of pain may change when urine fills the bladder or when it is emptied. The variations in symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis make some researchers believe it is a combination of several diseases.

 Interstitial Cystitis may be diagnosed using different methods, including urinalysis, cystoscopy, biopsy and culture of prostate secretions.

 A variety of methods may be used to treat* Interstitial Cystitis. The following are the recommended health supplements to address the symptoms resulting from the condition.


 This clinically proven nutritional supplement is formulated to maintain the integrity and health of the bladder. The ingredients it contains, including a proprietary combination of quercetin, bromelain andpapain, are useful in controlling symptoms associated with Interstitial Cystitis, and that aid in digestion while also addressing inflammation.

 Cysta-Q has gone through intensive clinical trials and many urologists, primary care physicians and different healthcare professionals rely on it for addressing the symptoms associated with Interstitial Cystitis.


 This is another all-natural nutritional supplement that promotes urinary health and thereby addresses the symptoms associated with Interstitial cystitis. It is the newest version of clinically proven Cysta-Q and while it contains all the same ingredients, it also incorporates the proven amounts of calcium glycerophostphate, an ingredient clinically shown to reduce food acid sensitivities shown to exacerbate the urinary symptoms associated with interstitial cystitis.

These nutraceuticals have been shown to be as safe as a sugar pill in clinical studies and are also heart healthy.  When taken as suggested, they promote a healthy urinary system and address the symptoms associated with Interstitial Cystitis.

Prostatis is an inflammation of the prostate gland that is commonly diagnosed in men over the age of forty. This inflammation may be due to a bacterial infection, a viral infection or, in some cases, the actual cause of the inflammation may never be identified.  Regardless of its underlying cause, prostatitis may cause symptoms such as pain or the sensation of pressure in the lower pelvis; frequent and difficult urination, or recurrent chills and fever.

 Addressing the symptoms associated with prostatitis primarily involves reducing the inflammation that is the underlying cause of the patient’s symptoms. Although in some cases the cause of an individual’s prostatis cannot be determined, this is usually not a factor in the treatment* of the condition since such treatment* is targeted at reducing the prostate gland inflammation. There are several nutraceuticals available to address the symptoms associated with prostatis.

 Prosta-Q is a popular clinically proven formulation which contains Saw Palmetto, Quercetin, and Cranberry (non-acidic) Extract among its ingredients.  Since each of these nutraceuticals has been shown individually to be effective, Prosta-Q gives the user the benefit of all three preparations with the convenience of a single capsule.

 Q-Urol is another popular nutraceutical to address the symptoms associated with prostatitis. Since its active ingredients include Quercetin and the addition of Pollen Extract, two powerful anti-inflammatory nutraceuticals, Q-Urol directly targets the source of prostatis symptoms.

 In some cases, prostatis can contribute to the onset of secondary conditions such as erectile dysfunction and poor sexual health. Although such dysfunction usually resolves with addressing the symptoms associated with the underlying prostatis, it may be necessary to address poor sexual health with nutraceuticals such as TriverexTM MD.

 TriverexTM MD is a potent formulation of nutraceuticals whose main ingredients are Korean Red Ginseng, L-Citrulline, and Epimedium extracts. These phytotherapeutic (plant-based) agents do not directly influence the prostate itself but instead work by increasing blood flow to the penis which, in turn, results in a longer, harder, erection. Those suffering from poor sexual health due to prostatis may want to try TriverexTM MD before resorting to other, prescription agents.

 In conclusion, prostatis is a relatively frequent complaint in men over the age of forty. Many men have opted to address the symptoms of prostatis by using nutraceutical products such as Prosta-Q or Q-Urol. In those cases where poor sexual health occurs as a complication of prostatitis, TriverexTM MD has proven effective in improving sexual health in addition to erectile strength and duration.

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. Aliperol 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. Aliperol 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.

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!

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


 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.

 *This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, treat Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, cure Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, or prevent Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome or any disease.

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.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) describes a generalized, non-cancerous, enlargement of the prostate gland. Although the exact cause of BPH remains unknown, medical researchers feel that this condition is most likely due to hormonal changes and is thus a part of the normal aging process. Symptoms of BPH may include frequent urination; difficulty in starting or maintaining a urine stream; a sensation of pressure or “fullness” near the rectum, and chronic bladder infection. Fortunately, there are several nutraceutical preparations available that are effective in addressing symptoms often associated with BPH.


 BP-Qmax contains a combination of three nutraceuticals that have been proven effective with symptoms associated with BPH: Saw Palmetto extract, Beta-Sitosterol, and Pygeum Africanum. Considering that these three naturally-occurring substances have been proven to be effective when they have been used alone, BP-Qmax combines the three with a proprietary anti-inflammatory combination of quercetin, bromelain and papain in order to  provide  users with an effective “Multi-Modal Punch” against urinary symptoms associated with prostate dysfunction and BPH.


 Prosta-Q contains two active ingredients that are known to be clinically effective in targeting inflammation, often associated with the progression of prostate problems including  BPH: Saw Palmetto extract and Quercetin. In addition, Prosta-Q contains the element zinc, which is known to assist in the normal function of the urinary, nervous, and immune systems as well as being a treatment* for vital respiratory infections.


 Q-Urol contains a special mixture of Quercetin and Pollen Extracts which, together, exert an anti-inflammatory effect on the urinary tract as well as the rest of the body. Since inflammation is a component of many conditions other than BPH (such as arthritis or musculo-skeletal disorders), Q-Urol can be seen as an “all-in-one” natural option for a variety of concerns that may arise alongside BPH.

 The time until an improvement in BPH symptoms is noted will, of course, vary among the individual users. While some will notice a lessening of symptoms within the first few weeks, it is not uncommon for several months to pass before an improvement will be noticed.

 In summary, many of the urinary and inflammatory symptoms associated with BPH can be controlled (if not totally eliminated) by use of nutraceuticals such as BP-Qmax, Prosta-Q, and Q-Urol. As an added benefit, the nutraceuticals included in these preparations are also beneficial to other bodily systems and thus work to maintain optimal health in the users of these products.

Nocturia forces the sufferers to get up at night because of a strong urge to pass urine. It affects people of both sexes and tends to get more prevalent with increasing age.

 Symptoms of Nocturia

 Under normal conditions, people should find no problem sleeping for between six and eight hours without getting up to urinate. Those who suffer from Nocturia have to get up more than once when they are pressed. As a result, they tend to suffer from disrupted sleep cycles.

 Patients are encouraged to keep a record of their fluid intake and voiding for two days to help in diagnosing Nocturia. The record should include amount of urine passed, any medications taken and other related symptoms.

 Nocturia Treatment *

 Different pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals are used to treat* Nocturia, including:


 The Institute of Male Urology tested this nutraceutical in a clinical trial led by Daniel Shoskes, M.D. The trial showed that 82 percent of males who used it realized improvement in the symptoms of genital and pelvic discomfort.

 The nutraceutical is made of different ingredients whose effects have been clinically proven, including Saw Palmetto, Quercetin, Papain, Bromelain and Zinc. It is the most powerful all-natural nutraceutical formulation for treating* addressing symptoms associated with Nocturia and related symptoms.


 This is a time-released, tableted form of Prosta-Q with the addition of pollen extract that has been scientifically proven to maintain the integrity and health of the prostate.

 The pollen extract is a phytotherapeutic agent that contains amino acids, minerals and vitamins. It has anti-inflammatory properties.


 This is another potent nutraceutical addressing the symptoms associated with nocturia that is formulated with specific phytotherapeutic agents that help in maintaining proper urinary flow and overall health of the prostate.

 Beta-sitosterol is one of the main ingredients. This plant sterol is good for the health of the urinary system, prostate and heart. It also contains Quercetin that has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

 Nocturia is a troublesome condition that leads to other health complications. These nutraceuticals have been scientifically proven to address frequent urination and the problem of going often at night.

Men suffering from dysuria associated with chronic prostatitis and related, non-bacterial conditions will find relief from discomfort with a product from Farr Labs called Prosta-Q.  Prosta-Q is formulated from all natural ingredients that have been clinically proven to relieve pelvic pain and dysuria.

 What Is Dysuria?

 Dysuria is the medical name for painful urination, a condition that’s as embarrassing as it is uncomfortable.  Sometimes dysuria manifests as a burning sensation in the genitals.  Other times, it’s a heavy, leaden ache in the abdomen that intensifies during urination.

 Dysuria can be associated with urinary tract infections, as well as with kidney infections, kidney stones and sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhea.  If painful urination is accompanied by fever, back or flank pain, or penile discharge, a visit to a primary health care provider is in order.

 Often, however, dysuria is the primary symptom of a chronic, non-infectious medical condition like interstitial cystitis or chronic prostatitis.  Neither condition responds well to antibiotics, and the NSAIDs and alpha blockers prescribed to control discomfort don’t touch the pain.  Prosta-Q, a product from Farr Labs, holds great promise for these sufferers.  Over 80 percent of the male subjects who took Prosta-Q, in a randomized placebo controlled clinical trial conducted by the then UCLA School of Medicine’s Dr. Daniel Shoskes, reported significant improvement in their urogenital discomfort.  The study was written up in the American Medical Journal Urology, the “Gold” journal.

 Prosta-Q, Dysuria and Prostate Health

 Prosta-Q is a proprietary nutraceutical from Farr Labs that provides quick relief from symptoms associated with dysuria.  It combines natural ingredients like saw palmetto, cranberry (non-acidic), bromelain and papain with the powerful anti-oxidant bioflavonoid, Quercetin.  Prostatitis is a common condition associated with aging, but it can be managed with the right treatment.  Prosta-Q improves prostate health at the same time that it addresses symptoms associated with dysuria.

 Prostate health boosts sexual vitality.   So will another nutraceutical from Farr Labs called TriverexTM MD, an all-natural male enhancement formula that combines the latest researched phytotherapeutic therapies with a special form of Korean Red Ginseng, a botanical that men have used to enhance their potency since ancient times.  Prosta-Q, TriverexTM  MD and other products from Farr Labs work in concert to maintain prostate health and healthy aging.
