Ways to Treat the Prostate Nowadays

The male prostate gets swollen due to the number of reasons and this can lead to severe complications. If the problem is ignored, a person may face serious urinary tract issues. A man feels the need to urinate too frequently even during the night hours. As a result, he may need to take harsh prescription drugs and even have a prostate surgery. There are many ways to treat the prostate nowadays - with medications, supplements or a surgery.

ProRX is a supplement formulated to improve prostate health and to treat urinary and prostate problems. It is manufactured by company Superbalife International and is considered an alternative to prescription drugs. The product has an official website which claims that Prostavar can reduce PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels, shrink an enlarged prostate, remove urinary and prostatitis problems. However, I am not satisfied with the official website. It is badly made and contains no detailed information about the ingredients or side effects of the supplement.

ProRX is a herbal supplement that contains a blend of natural ingredients which are said to be good for prostate health. The main one is saw palmetto, a famous herb that is promised to relieve the symptoms of prostate enlargement. The supplement also contains stinging nettle that has a positive effect on the urinary tract and prostate. Additional ingredients include vitamin E, zinc, and vitamin B6. Zinc is stored in the prostate, while vitamin B6 and E are used to support the functionality of other ingredients. Let us analyze each of them.

Saw Palmetto has been extensively studied and proven to improve the symptoms of prostate enlargement in men. It is said to contain chemicals that function as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors which are necessary for the conversion of testosterone to DHT (dihydrotestosterone). The latter is an androgen hormone that is linked with prostate enlargement.

Pygeum is used for the treatment of prostate and urinary issues due to phytochemicals contained in the product. It is said to relieve urinary and prostate problems in men. Some of its active chemicals possess an androgen activity in the prostate by reducing the number of androgens and reduce prostate inflammation. This substance should not be taken for too long, as it can cause adverse effects.

Beta sitosterol is a sterol that can be found in plants and is known for its bioactive chemicals responsible for eliminating the symptoms of prostate problems. Pay attention to the fact that these substances do not treat, they only hide the symptoms. As soon as you stop using the supplement the issues may be back. Stinging nettle is just said to improve the health of prostate but in what way remains unknown. This ingredient should be avoided by men suffering from diabetes, low blood pressure and kidney problems.

Muira puama is a flowering that is popular among the locals for its medical abilities to treat neuromuscular problems, gastrointestinal problems, and rheumatism. I failed to find any evidence that this component can somehow improve erectile function. Epimedium extract is another Prostavar ingredient that possesses aphrodisiac properties but this is not enough to fight prostate issues, you know. This natural extract can be dangerous when used for a long period of time or in high doses.

Green Tea is a beneficial herb for human health in general due to its antioxidant, diuretic, and anti-inflammatory properties. However, it may have such effects on the prostate and urinary tract only temporarily. Ginger also contains antioxidant nutrients but their effect is very insignificant. It can help your body to resist bacterial infection and inflammation but not treat these issues.

ProRX also contains such amino acids as L-glutamic acid, L-Alanine, and L-glycine). Again they take part in the normal functioning of the prostate, but they cannot treat any medical condition. Other antioxidant ingredients include Quercetin and Lycopene which are nothing more than just vitamins to the human body if used in proper doses.

Although Prostavar manufacturer says that the supplement is free of side effects, this is a deceptive claim. The matter is that the active ingredients of the product have been studied in a number of researches and proven to cause certain side effects. Some of the adverse reactions can be successfully prevented but others may take some effort to resolve. For example, the gastrointestinal side effects of stinging nettle and saw palmetto can be prevented by consuming the pills with a meal. Such side effects as loss of body fluids and sweating can be prevented by drinking plenty of water.

A lot of users complain of having headache and dizziness when using ProRX. Beta-sitosterol in the product can lead to indigestion, nausea, gas, constipation, or diarrhea. There are reports that this substance is linked to the loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. Another ingredient, horny goat weed, can be dangerous for health when used in high doses or for a long period of time. It may cause vomiting, dizziness, dry mouth, nosebleed, thirst, spasms and breathing problems. ProRX is often associated with heart arrhythmia as well.

"After taking ProRX for three months I was diagnosed to have serious kidney problems. Now I have to stay off the supplement to avoid complications. Don't use this product unless you want to spoil your health."

"When I started to take ProRX I was not aware that it can interact with other medications. I take pills for hypertension on a regular basis, but that supplement promotes decreasing heart pressure even more! Be careful with similar products."

"I am not a doctor but I can say that I felt no difference after taking ProRX for four months. It did not work for me at all. I think this product is really overpriced. Now I have found a good alternative at a cheaper price."

A bottle of Prostavar contains 90 capsules and costs $40. The suggested daily dosage is three pills which should be taken during meals with a glass of water. So, a bottle will be enough for a month. I would recommend buying the supplement from an official website only. You can buy it from Amazon, GNC, Walmart.

I cannot say that ProRX is the right choice for solving the prostate problems even though it contains a lot of natural ingredients. Besides, many users are not satisfied with the product which can be seen from users' testimonies. There is a general discontent with the work of the parent ProRX company.

The product's official website leaves much to be desired. It gives a lot of promises but no evidence that ProRX is really effective and safe. Some users have been charged more than the product costs and they failed to return their money or just to get explanation. I cannot recommend ProRX to usage.
