A lot of things change in our body as we grow old. Our bones and muscles weaken, skin sag, face wrinkles, and metabolism slows down.
For men, one essential thing changes unnoticeably – prostate.
Based on the research that I have done, prostate, a gland found only in men and responsible for producing fluids and hormones, grows back as men hit the age of 50. This causes a lot of health issues such as imbalanced hormones, prostatitis, and BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
Peeing frequently at night can be a good sign of enlarged prostate. Here are some more signs and symptoms of enlarged prostate and prostatitis:
- Fever, chills, and flulike symptoms
- Pain in the prostate, scrotum, or lower back
- Urinary frequency and blood-tinged urine
- Painful ejaculation
If you ever experience this then you should see your doctor and check out these 18 natural solutions to enlarged prostate and prostatitis.
1: Try African Pygeum
Used extensively in Europe for the treatment of BPH, this fruit of an African evergreen tree is effective, possibly because it diminishes inflammation. “The active extract seems to reduce symptoms of frequent nighttime urination and difficulty urinating,” says Craig. African pygeum appears to be a safe herb, but talk to your doctor for proper diagnosis and monitoring before using it to treat enlarged prostate. The standard dosage is usually 100 to 200 milligrams per day in capsule form.
