Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia… What is it?

By the age of 50, 1 in 2 men experience symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Find out how to prevent it and counter its effects!

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that causes a lot of discomfort in men over the age of 40.

What causes BPH?

The exact causes of BPH remain unclear. However, we know that with age, a drop in testosterone stimulates prostate growth.

From the age of 40, the prostate increases in volume following the benign multiplication of the cells of its tissues; a phenomenon called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This condition leads to a narrowing of the urethra and bladder disorders.

What are the symptoms of BPH?

  • Frequent nocturnal urination
  • Difficulty starting to urinate
  • Impaired urinary flow
  • Sensation of residual urine in the bladder
  • Pain and burning sensations

How to treat the symptoms of BPH?

It would seem that certain lifestyle habits have an impact on the appearance of symptoms due to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Reducing alcohol and coffee consumption and a healthy lifestyle would have a positive impact in order to prevent or reduce the risk of BPH.

There are drugs to counter BPH but these come with their share of side effects such as loss of libido and erectile dysfunction.

Natural products to promote prostate health

Saw palmetto is a small red fruit the size of an olive rich in fatty acids. It is the fatty acids contained in this small fruit that reduce or stabilize the inflammation of prostate cells. To be effective, these red fruits must contain a minimum of 85% fatty acids.

Prostate 1, from A.Vogel is the most scientifically documented saw palmetto product on the market for BPH.

A single capsule of Prostate 1, from A.Vogel contains up to 3840mg of organic saw palmetto berries (100% natural).

In order to maintain their high fatty acid content (minimum 85%) and to ensure the product's full effectiveness, A.Vogel's saw palmetto fruits are processed within 24 hours of being picked.

Prostate 1 acts on BPH in 4 ways:

  • It inhibits the production of inflammatory type testosterone (dihydrotestosterone or DHT)
  • It prevents DHT from binding to the prostate
  • It decreases the level of DHT and thereby decreases the production of inflammatory chemicals all around.
  • It reduces the proliferation of prostate cells by a non-hormonal mechanism.

Possible results:

  • Relieves frequent and urgent urination, day and night
  • Helps completely empty the bladder
  • Improved quality of life and increased peak urinary flow

In conclusion

If you have symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, it is recommended that you consult a healthcare professional. In addition, healthy lifestyle habits combined with the consumption of saw palmetto supplements can help prevent and alleviate the symptoms of BPH.
