Worried about prostate problems? If so, you aren’t alone—prostate problems are more common than you might realize!
In fact, one in three men over the age of 50 suffer from one of several prostate issues, from enlarged but benign prostate to prostate cancer.
If left undiagnosed and untreated, these prostate problems can have a negative impact on your overall health and the quality of your life.
Traditional approaches to prostate problems include medication and surgery. But there’s another way you can help protect and treat your prostate at home—something proven to be even more effective than traditional medication!
Read on to find out what prostate issues you might be at risk for, what your treatment options are, and how you can support your prostate health naturally at home.
Common Prostate Problems as You Age
Men over the age of 50 encounter several common prostate issues:
One of the most common is an enlarged prostate (also known as BPH, or benign prostatic hyperplasia).
Your risk for an enlarged prostate dramatically increases over time. Most men will battle an enlarged prostate at some point: Half of men at age 60 will suffer from an enlarged prostate, a number that rises to 90% by age 85.
Signs of an enlarged prostate include frequent urge to urinate, painful urination, and incontinence.
In addition to an enlarged prostate, there are several prostate infections that men might encounter as they age.
Acute bacterial prostatitis is a bacterial infection of the prostate that can lead to fever along with traditional prostate symptoms. Sometimes the infection becomes recurring and leads to chronic bacterial prostatitis.
Prostatitis can also be non-bacterial, known as chronic pelvic pain syndrome. This can impact your back health and cause pain in the groin along with urinary issues.
Your chances of developing prostate cancer also increase over time. You are at increased risk for prostate cancer after the age of 55. The risk also goes up if you have a family history of prostate cancer.
Treatment Options for Prostate Issues
When you suffer from symptoms of prostate issues, your doctor will likely order a PSA test. This test measures the prostate-specific antigen in your blood.
Elevated PSA numbers are indicative of either an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer.
Typical treatment for prostate issues includes alpha-blockers and other medication designed to reduce the size of your prostate. In more serious cases, treatment includes surgery to reduce the size of your prostate or remove it altogether in more extreme cases.
Some prostate medications might elevate your risk for prostate cancer in the future.
What Can You Do at Home for Prostate Health?
Fortunately, there is a way you can support your prostate health at home, reducing your symptoms of enlarged prostate and even lowering your risk of cancer.
The latest scientific evidence shows that OPCs, naturally occurring superantioxidants, offer a wide range of benefits for prostate health.
A large 2018 study showed that pycnogenol, or pine bark extract, reduced symptoms of enlarged prostate and significantly lowered PSA numbers in just 60 days—faster than most prostate medication.
Participants that took pine bark extract saw reduced urge to urinate, lower frequency of urination, and less strained and painful urination.
Other OPCs have also been linked to prostate and urinary health. Green tea extract is linked to a reduction in urinary tract complications and an increase in sexual desire in men who suffer from urinary and prostate issues.
Another study showed that grape seed extract can reduce the growth of prostate cancer and lessen the severity.
Resveratrol, a component in red wine and red wine extract, has also been linked to an up to 50% reduction in odds of developing prostate cancer.
OPCs for Prostate Health
The science is clear—OPCs could reduce the size of an enlarged prostate, lower PSA numbers, reduce the symptoms of prostate problems, and even prevent and slow the growth of prostate cancer.
That’s why we recommend that all men over the age of 50 supplement their diet with OPCs. Our OPCXtra includes green tea extract, grape seed extract, pine bark extract, and red wine extract, the perfect cocktail for strengthening your prostate health naturally at home.
