NATURAL REMEDIES FOR THE PROSTATE
For prostatic hypertrophy problems, resorting to natural remedies can reduce inflammation in the urinary tract, facilitate diuresis and control hormonal changes that can cause prostate enlargement, such as a testosterone decrease and rise of estrogen levels. In fact, there are many natural remedies that not only help tackle the disorders, but they go well with prescriptions that your andrologist may give you. It’s always a good idea to see a specialist too.
Serenoa Repens (Saw Palmetto): Rich in sterols, flavonoids, carotenoids & fatty acids. Inhibits 5-alpha-reductase activity; the enzyme that transforms testosterone into dihydrotestosterone and is found in urination disorders due to BHP. Serenoa Repens have decongestant & spasmolytic properties. Also helps to combat issues such as hormonal alopecia.
Dioecious Nettle: Carries out a diuretic, astringent and anti-prostatic activity, also contributing to the inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase. It is recommended to those experiencing difficulties urinating because it helps to increase the volume and flow of urine.
Pumpkin seeds: One of the best ancient remedies for inflammation of the urinary tract. Pumpkin seeds contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber. In addition to being diuretics, they contribute to anti-inflammatory activity, especially in prostate tissue.
Willowherb: Also acts as an antibacterial and diuretic, actively protecting the urinary system.
