With new research and clinical studies emerging, the way we look at treating an enlarged prostate is certainly evolving. The traditional, and somewhat out-dated Saw palmetto formulas have recently been subject to some negative clinical reviews and new evidence is mounting that there are some fresh new ingredients that are more effective in treating symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
An enlarged prostate is a condition that only affects men, characterised by lower urinary tract symptoms or LUTS. As men age, hormonal imbalances occur and conversion of the main male sex hormone testosterone, into its more potent form known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT), increases due to enzyme 5-alpha reductase activity. This is thought to be the mechanism behind the enlargement of the prostate gland, which in turn compresses the urethra, leading to LUTS.
An enlarged prostate gland is very common in men over the age of 50, with half of this male demographic displaying symptoms including:
- Increased urinary frequency & urgency
- Intermittent urine flow / feeling of obstruction
- Increased need to get up at night to urinate
- Incontinence & dribbling
- Decreased urinary flow
Flowens™ is a unique, proprietary blend of Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) whole fruit powder that has a unique, full spectrum of phytochemicals. It is the synergy of the full spectrum of phytochemicals that has been clinically proven to improve LUTS associated with an enlarged prostate. In fact, Flowens™ has been shown to be safe and effective, with improvements in LUTS in as little as 30 days.
Phytopin® is a natural and pure beta-sitosterol extract containing phytosterols of exceptional quality, produced from Pinus pinaster tree oil. Beta-sitosterols bind to the prostate gland, helping to reduce swelling and inflammation while also inhibiting the activity of 5-alpha reductase, helping to reduce the conversion of testosterone to DHT. These mechanisms of action help reduce the size of the prostate, relieving associated LUTS and improving urinary flow.
Other natural solutions for treating an enlarged prostate include well known nutrients; lycopene, selenium and zinc. Lycopene and selenium are strong antioxidants that can reduce the incidence of LUTS in men. Zinc is found in high concentrations in the prostate gland and is important for normal prostate function and prostate hormonal balance via testosterone metabolism.
Both Flowens™ and Phytopin® provide positive, clinically trialled outcomes for an enlarged prostate by addressing the underlying cause and associated symptoms. So, when treating an enlarged prostate, it’s time to take a fresh new and effective approach.
