Healthy Man: Prostate - The prostate is a small circular gland situated just below the bladder. Through the centre of it passes the urethra, the tube which carries urine through the penis. The prostate produces fluid which forms part of the semen and helps carry sperm during sex.
It is rare for prostate problems to affect young men, but from age 45 onwards they become increasingly common. Because many men prefer not to talk about urinary and prostate difficulties, the exact numbers who may be affected are not known, however American research has found that more than half of all men aged over 50 have symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition known as Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH).
Natural therapies include Epilobium (Willow Herb), Lycopene and Soy. Serenoa (Saw Palmetto) is a herb which has been clinically proven to relieve the symptoms of a medically diagnosed enlarged prostate. Zinc deficiency is associated with enlarged prostate; for best absorption choose a zinc supplement which also contains magnesium, manganese and vitamin B6. Selenium has been associated with good prostate health
