Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

More than half of all men over the age of 60 have Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or an enlarged prostate. Symptoms can include difficulty starting to urinate, a weak stream, dribbling at the end of urination, incomplete bladder emptying, pelvic pain, and even blood in the urine.

There are other causes for similar symptoms; however, BPH tends to be more common in men over 60 and is often associated with prostate gland enlargement. This occurs because the hormone testosterone (which is converted into dihydrotestosterone or DHT) causes the prostate gland to grow.

Some nutrients may be able to help reduce your risk of BPH by helping you maintain blood DHT levels in the normal range, and by helping your liver effectively eliminate excess DHT.

One of the ways to manage BPH is through diet, especially by including foods containing high levels of zinc. Zinc is thought to play a role in regulating the activity of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, which causes testosterone to be converted into DHT.

In this beginner's quick start guide, you will discover the following:
