Item#: benproshyp1

Product Description
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA: (BPH), a noncancerous growth of the prostate gland, makes urination difficult and uncomfortable. The expanding prostate squeezes the urethra, the channel that carries urine from the bladder. BPH affects only men. Symptoms usually develop around age 50. At age 60, you'll most likely have BPH. At age 80, you'll have an 80% chance of experiencing urination problems caused by BPH.



Nutrition:
  • Zinc (60 mg per day) - to reduce the size of the prostate
  • Selenium (200 mcg per day) - antioxidant in the prostate
  • Essential Fatty Acids (1,000 to 1,500 IU one to two times per day) - anti-inflammatory, for optimum prostaglandin concentrations
  • B6 (100 to 25o Mg per day) - reduces the elevated levels of prolactin found in people who have BPH
  • Amino acids glycine, glutamic acid and alanine (200 mg per day of each) - provide relief from symptoms
