Take the Right Supplements

Inflammation causes tissues to become swollen and irritated. A swollen prostate causes difficulty urinating and problems with intercourse; it also interrupts sleep and can make a man feel more or less miserable. I don’t have to tell men when their prostate gland is swollen — they know it.

Taking the right supplements can not only help decrease the size of the prostate, it can also improve the functioning of the gland and relieve symptoms.

Men suffering from swollen, irritated prostates can improve their conditions with the use of targeted supplements.

Saw palmetto (also known as Serenoa repens) is an old-fashioned therapy for promoting prostate health. It has been studied and found to be effective for treating BPH by modifying testosterone metabolism in the prostate gland.

Pomegranate juice contains phytochemicals that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. When a prostate is inflamed, increasing antioxidant capabilities in the gland can ease the inflammation.

Plant sterols have been shown to positively modify testosterone metabolism in the prostate. Pygeum Africanum bark has been used for many years as an anti-inflammatory agent, and it has been shown to treat BPH.

In addition, Boswellia, stinging nettle root, lycopene, flower pollen, hydrangea root, and pumpkin seed powder all contain phytochemicals that have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities.

Vitamins D3 and E have been shown to positively influence PSA levels and help maintain optimal prostate function.

Finally, the prostate gland is very sensitive to low levels of copper, selenium, and zinc.

I have treated many men’s prostate issues with nutritional supplements. I can assure you that a swollen, irritated prostate gland improves with proper supplementation.

Men who had to get up numerous times each night to urinate can sleep longer, and libido and sexual function improve as the prostate becomes healthier.
