Taking care of our prostate is taking care of our health. That is why we must be aware that there are natural remedies that are very valid and can treat some problems.
With age, men are aware that they are more likely to enlarge their prostate and then come infections or other diseases.
In this sense, it is recalled for those who do not know that the prostate is the male reproductive gland that produces the liquid that transports the sperm during ejaculation.
This glandular organ of the male genitourinary system surrounds the urethra, and its enlargement can squeeze it a lot and hence we have problems.
Hypertrophy and its symptoms
Thus, when the prostate increases its size more than normal it is called hypertrophy or benign prostatic hyperplasia, whose acronym is BPH.
This problem can come at any time, especially in advanced ages, but it should not pose a serious danger as long as we follow the advice of a specialist.
We leave you here a list of symptoms so that you can identify if you suffer from this enlarged prostate and take the measures you deem appropriate:
Drip at the end of urination.
Various difficulties to urinate.
Incomplete emptying of the bladder, which involuntarily holds urine.
Flow or stream of urine weaker.
Need to urinate during the night.
In some cases, painful urination may occur.
Urine with blood, in certain people, derived from an infection.
What can I do at home?
If you have one or more of the symptoms listed above, you can consult directly with your GP, who will guide and advise you in the best way.
However, always with the prior approval of said specialist, we leave you here a series of home remedies that although they will not solve, they will serve as relief to improve our prostate.
For those who do not know, saw palmetto is an American palm that serves as a treatment for an enlarged prostate thanks to its fatty extract rich in free acids.
It is said that the effect it causes on the prostate is antiandrogenic, that is, it can inhibit the biological effects of male sex hormones.
Another plant that benefits us for its qualities is the African plum, which has an extract with a lipid-sterol complex.
On the other hand, we find the greater nettle, whose root has properties of polysaccharides and fatty acids that also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) states that nettle provides relief from the lower urinary tract associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
This list of foods ends with pumpkin, rich in lipids, especially in linoleic acid, and also has vitamins and proteins .
