Say bye-bye to Prostate enlargement using these herbs

An enlarged prostate is quite a common condition. Around 50-60% of men aged more than 50 years have an enlarged prostate. Enlargement of the prostate gland is common as men age. The condition is called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH.

The urethra, which is a hollow tube responsible for carrying urine out of the body, is surrounded by the prostate gland. With the prostate gland enlargement, the urethra might get squeezed or partially blocked. This results in problems with urination. However, many people are not aware of the natural treatments for prostate enlargement. Here are some of the natural treatments for this problem.

1. Licorice. 

This herb contains a compound that may prevent the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone that plays a role in prostate growth and enlargement.

2. Pygeum Africanum Bark.

The compounds found in Pygeum have been known to provide support to the urinary tract and may inhibit the cell growth in the prostate.

3. Pumpkin Seeds.

Pumpkin seeds are an old remedy to treat urination problems and enlarged prostate symptoms.

They are rich in zinc several beneficial amino acids.

4. Red Clover.

Red clover is one of the richest sources of isoflavones which are believed to limit the development of BPH.

5. Saw Palmetto.

Saw Palmetto has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. It blocks the production of the hormone that causes the prostate to grow.

6. Stinging Nettle.

Stinging Nettles are very popular in Europe, in fact, nettle soup is one of my favorite delicacies. It may help to reduce symptoms of prostate problems by slowing down the growth of some of the cells. It is also fantastic for the urinary tract.

7. Swedish Flower Pollen.

Swedish Flower Pollen promotes healthy urine flow and helps maintain normal prostate cell function.
