Shrink your prostate

Having an enlarged prostate can not only be a common yet bothersome problem, it can also be a symptom of a serious underlying medical condition such as cancer or infection.  If these types of conditions are excluded by your doctor, you may have benign prostate hypertrophy or BPH.  BPH is an extremely common condition that affects millions of Americans.  Your risk for benign prostate hypertrophy actually increases as you age as well.

Symptoms of BPH can be especially annoying.  From Web MD this list can include:

  1. A weak urinary stream
  2. Incomplete bladder emptying
  3. Difficulty starting urination
  4. Frequent urination
  5. Urgency
  6. Nocturia or having to wake up at night to urinate
  7. Straining to urinate
  8. Dribbling of urine

Though there are medical treatment options for this condition.  You can also discuss some popular natural remedies to shrink your prostate. Of these, Saw Palmetto extract is the most popular choice.  Some studies have also suggested that Zinc and Lycopene might also be effective.
