The average male will experience a concern with his prostate at some point during his lifetime. The condition known as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) becomes increasing prevalent in men as they age, with 50% of men experiencing BPH by the age of 60, and 90% of men by the age of 85. This condition can cause a multitude of symptoms, including difficulty starting the flow of urine, discomfort with urination, and increased risk of urinary tract infections due to urine stagnation in the bladder, which may potentially lead to kidney damage. BPH can interfere with activities of daily living and have a serious impact in a male?s life. Several herbs and nutrients have been studied that demonstrate the ability to prevent and treat BPH, and in many cases eliminate symptoms entirely.
