What is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH?

Complications in Prostate are common in men on their 40’s. Men in this age group experience enlarging of their prostrate or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH which is cause by aging.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH refers to the increase in size of the prostate in middle-aged and elderly men.

To be accurate, the process is one of hyperplasia rather than hypertrophy, but the nomenclature is often interchangeable, even amongst urologists. It is characterized by hyperplasia of prostatic stromal and epithelial cells, resulting in the formation of large, fairly discrete nodules in the periurethral region of the prostate. When sufficiently large, the nodules compress the urethral canal to cause partial, or sometimes virtually complete, obstruction of the urethra, which interferes the normal flow of urine. It leads to symptoms of urinary hesitancy, frequent urination, dysuria (painful urination), increased risk of urinary tract infections, and urinary retention. Although prostate specific antigen levels may be elevated in these patients because of increased organ volume and inflammation due to urinary tract infections, BPH is not considered to be a premalignant lesion.

As the prostate grows it can put excess pressure on the urethra (the small tube that carries urine and the semen).  As this pressure increase the urethra can become pinched which can lead to painful and embarrassing symptoms such as urinary hesitancy, painful urination, and sexual dysfunction. if left untreated these conditions may eventually require surgery.

Because of this, more and more supplementary products are being advertised in the market for the reason that larger numbers of adult men are experiencing this kind of complication in their prostate.

One of the common products that are said to be effective is Prostacet. Prostate formula has a powerful, natural solution designed to Support the Health of the Prostate, Maintain Healthy Prostate Function and Support Bladder Health and Normal Urine Flow. It contains a healthy dose of lycopene, the remarkably potent antioxidant phytonutrient that helps fight free radical damage. Reinforced by other herbs, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, Prostacet has emerged as a premier natural prostate health formula.

Promoting Prostate health is an important for men over the age of 40. As men age, it is important to promote the health of the prostate and to maintain a normal size. Helping to maintain normal prostate size allows you more freedom to do the things you want to do everyday because it supports normal urinary flow.
