When it comes to addressing prostate problems, two leading scenarios in America interact; the prevailing prostate problems and the use of supplements for general wellbeing.

An In-depth Look into Prostate Supplements and What they do?

For such a small gland, the prostate is a pain in the groin, at times recently but most times metaphorically. The gland is as small as a walnut but has problems that could ground a man for weeks… the size-to-problems ration, if anything like that exists, can only be compared to an atomic bomb. It is estimated that over of the men population have or will have an instance of prostate problems at least once in their lifetime. Most of these problems will pass unnoticed.

USA is the land of supplements. All manner of professionals have tried to explain why Americans love to use supplements. Some have even added a psychological and business twist to it- fear of being sick, fear of expensive treatment etc. At estimated 47% of Americans use dietary supplement at least once per week. American are spending loads of money on supplement. This trend dates back a few years ago. For instance, in 2011, it is estimated that consumers spent $30 billion on these over-the-counter nutritional supplements — 42 percent of them for vitamins and minerals, 17 percent going to herbal and botanical supplements, and 12 percent for sports nutrition products. The sad news is that most of this money end going to the wrong supplements. It is like a huge multi-corporation scam.

When it comes to prostate health, there are hundreds of supplements if not thousands of supplements that claim to offer the protection and mitigation for most prostate problems- some even claim to heal the prostate cancer. However, despite the large number of vitamins and supplements that claim to promote prostate health, very few of the, actually work.

Many Most of them don't help mitigate prostate cancer, prostatitis (inflammation and infection of the prostate). In fact, many just use the popular supplements, such as saw palmetto and put them into concussions disregarding potency or any nutritional facts that have been tested and the results proved to be beneficial. Popular ingredients that are being promoted for prostate health include Vitamin E, Saw Palmetto, Zinc, selenium, soy, and some general herbal remedies are rumored to health with prostate trouble and supposedly to decrease the rate of cancer, help with urination and promote sexual health.

Possible Side Effects of using Prostate Supplements
The side effects will vary from product to product but here are the most common side effects;
• easy bruising or bleeding including nosebleeds and bleeding gums when brushing or chewing
• any bleeding that will not stop readily
• signs of stomach bleeding--bloody or tarry stools, coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;
• pancreas problems--severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, fast heart rate;
• Liver problems--nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, tired feeling, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Mild side effects may include:
• nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation;
• headache, dizziness; or
• Temporary impotence, sexual problems.

Enough of the chilling side of the article; you can promote your prostate health by adopting lifestyle habits such as;
• Maintaining a healthy body weight
• Increasing physical activity
• Eating a diet rich in plant products
• Avoiding red meat
• Limiting calcium intake to no more than 1,500 milligrams per day. Personally, I advise a maximum of 1,000 milligrams daily.

Most prostate problems are manageable through conservative means. Traditionally, there have been few treatments for conditions other than the popular operation known as transurethral resection of the prostate or TURP.

The procedure has not been ideal for many patients because it is very invasive, and requires internal surgery on the prostate gland. To access the gland, you will have to open the male sexual organ; you will agree with me that this is very embarrassing and can leave you with a lot of physical and mental distress. The surgery itself may result in retrograde ejaculation, and this basically means that you might not produce seminal fluid during ejaculation, since the fluid flows back into the bladder rather than outwards. If you still want to use a safe and proven conservative approach, you can opt to take Prostara supplement that will help you maintain optimum prostate health and at the same time mitigate the symptoms of most prostate symptoms.
