This condition is referred to as “Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy” it occurs most frequently in males between the ages of 40-50 years. Faulty dietary habits – diet high in fat and alcohol and exposure to endogenic (internal) and exogenous (external) toxins which boost the activity of 5 alpha reductase which is an enzyme that is involved in steroid metabolism. Other factors include zinc deficiency (needed for testosterone production) and low intake of Essential Fatty Acids, especially Omega 3 EFA’s and hormonal changes or imbalances. BPH can make urination problematic and it increases the risk of developing bladder infections and kidney damage. Other common symptoms associated with BPH include frequent urination, pain and burning sensation during urination and experiencing problems in starting or stopping urination. Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland and can strike men at all ages. This condition is usually caused by a bacterial infection of the urinary tract or from other areas of the body that permitted bacteria to invade and infect the prostate tissue. Hormonal changes may contribute to an inflamed prostate as well. Most common clinical symptoms are fever, chills, abdominal pain and pain and burning during urination. Prostate Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among males and is mainly a disorder associated with aging. It is believed that a high-fat-diet which boosts testosterone levels and subsequently promote enlargement of the prostate and exposure to environmental pollutants play a critical role in the development of prostate cancer. It appears that heritage might play a role in the development of prostate cancer as well. Statistics show that males of African-American decent have the highest rate of prostate cancer whereas men of Asian-American decent experience the lowest occurrence of this disease. Clinical signs you should watch out for include blood in the urine, painful urination and discomfort in the lower back, pelvis and upper thighs region. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any abnormalities in urination or any of the other mentioned clinical signs. However you can protect your prostate health by eating a whole foods balanced diet, lifestyle modifications and adding prostate health supplements that are designed to enhance prostate health.

Nettle has shown to decrease BPH related symptoms; therefore it is often used in prostate health supplements.
