WHAT IS THE PROSTATE GLAND?
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The prostate is just in front of the rectum. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body.
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The prostate is just in front of the rectum. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body.The prostate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. During ejaculation, the prostate squeezes this fluid into the urethra, and it’s expelled with sperm as semen.

WHAT IS BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY OR BPH ?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is when the prostate and surrounding tissue expands. The prostate goes through two main growth periods as a man ages. The first is early in puberty, when the prostate doubles in size. The second begins around age 25 and continues during most of a man's life. As you age, your prostate may get larger. BPH is when it gets large enough to cause problems.
While the prostate is usually the size of a walnut or golf ball in adult men, it can grow to be as large as an orange. As the gland enlarges, it can squeeze the urethra. The bladder wall becomes thicker. Over time the bladder may weaken and lose the ability to empty fully. Urine then remains in the bladder. These problems cause many of the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) of BPH. If you are not able to pass urine at all (called retention) or if you have renal failure, immediate attention is required. But, other symptoms like weak urine stream or the need to push or strain can many times be monitored.
BPH is benign. This means it is not cancer, nor does it lead to cancer. Still, BPH and cancer can happen at the same time. BPH itself may not require any treatment, but if it begins to cause symptoms, treatment may help. It is also of great value to know that BPH is common. About half of all men between ages 51 and 60 have BPH. Up to 90% of men over age 80 have it.
Symptoms of an enlarged prostate include:
***BPH is not linked to cancer and does not increase your risk of getting prostate cancer - yet the symptoms for BPH and prostate cancer can be similar.
WHAT IS PROSTATITIS ?
Prostatitis is a frequently painful condition that involves inflammation of the prostate and sometimes the areas around the prostate.
There are generally four types of prostatitis:
Men with asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis do not have symptoms. A health care provider may diagnose asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis when testing for other urinary tract or reproductive tract disorders. This type of prostatitis does not cause complications and does not need treatment.
Signs and symptoms of prostatitis can vary depending on the type of disorder. They may include:
WHAT IS NOCTURIA (NIGHT PEES) ?
Nocturia describes needing to wake up at night in order to urinate. It is a symptom of other conditions, not a disease itself.
About 1 in 3 adults over the age of 30 experience nocturia. The rate of people affected increases with age. It can be caused by a lifestyle habit or an underlying health problem.
Nocturia can be caused by:
WHAT IS LOWER URINARY TRACT SYMPTOMS (LUTS) ?
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is a term used to describe an array of symptoms affecting the control and quality of micturition in the lower urinary tract.
LUTS can affect both men and women, although they are particularly common presentation amongst men and increase with age. It is estimated that more than 50% of men over 50 years suffer from LUTS.
In older men, LUTS are commonly caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia, whilst in females are most commonly associated with lower urinary tract infections
Other potential causes include bladder cancer, prostate cancer (in males), detrusor muscle weakness, pelvic floor dysfunction, chronic prostatitis, urethral stricture, from external compression e.g. pelvic tumour, and neurological disease e.g. multiple sclerosis
Lifestyle factors, including drinking fluids late at night, excess alcohol intake, and excess caffeine intake can exacerbate LUTS. Additionally, polyuria (for example secondary to diabetes mellitus, excessive fluid intake, diuretics) can exacerbate or mimic LUTS.
Symptoms of LUTS include:
|1.Saw Palmetto - inhibit 5α-reductase, which is an enzyme responsible for conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. Many studies suggest that saw palmetto may actually shrink the size of the prostate gland|
|2.Stinging Nettle - slow the growth of certain prostate cells, improve urine flow, help the bladder to empty, and eases most of the common prostate complaints including nocturia, incontinence and others|
|3.African Plum - inhibit 5 -reductase and binding of dihydrotestosterone to androgen receptors.|
|4.Boswellia – powerful anti-inflammatory help reduce inflammation in chronic prostatitis, reduce the symptoms of LUTS.|
|5.Turmeric Standardised Extract– contains curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory help reduce inflammation in chronic prostatitis, and symptoms of LUTS.|
|6.Grape Seeds Standardised Extract – cancer preventive by inhibiting the growth of prostate cancer PC-3 cells by mean of regulating the androgen receptor-mediated transcription through anti-histone acetyltransferase activity.|
