Maintaining good prostate health as he reaches middle age and beyond is one of the things that can contribute greatly to a man's sense of well-being. As he ages, the prostate gland, which surrounds the urethra, can begin to enlarge. This causes pressure on the bladder and the urethra, resulting in a whole plethora of urinary difficulties. Men should have their prostates checked regularly to rule out more serious problems, but for most, this syndrome, benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, is simply an annoying interference in daily life.
Severe symptoms of BPH are traditionally treated with prescription drugs or even surgery. Both of those options, however, carry with them some serious risks. Recent studies have shown that dietary supplements may help alleviate the symptoms of BPH without side effects. One such supplement, which has only been available in the U.S. since 1999, is not only all natural, but it has no reported side effects.
This supplement is Natur-Leaf®, which has been used in Europe and Africa for many years. It is made from Lupins sprouts, Fenugreek sprouts, Barley sprouts, Soybean sprouts, African Sunflower sprouts, the Wild African Potato root, and the bark of Prunus africanum, the pygeum tree. Pygeum bark has been clinically shown to reduce swelling of prostate tissue, thus relieving pressure on the bladder and urethra.
Natur-Leaf® also contains beta sitosterol. This naturally occurring plant lipid has been shown to improve urinary function and relieve symptoms of BPH without side effects. It also provides nutritional support for the immune system and helps control levels of LDL cholesterol.
