The Plant Compound that Supports Men’s Urinary and Prostate Health With No Side Effects
What is BPH?
The prostate begins to grow in most males after they reach 40 years of age. This is because DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a potent form of the male hormone testosterone, increases in the body. Testosterone is produced by the testicles and the adrenal glands, and DHT accumulates in the prostate. This causes prostate cells to rapidly divide because of an imbalance of sex hormones. The result is a condition benign prostatic hyperplasia, or in other words BPH, or beta sitosterol prostate. The symptoms include frequent and urgent urination, urination throughout the night, a weak stream or one that is difficult to start or stop, and reduced sexual libido. These symptoms typically appear with the beginning of hair loss and eventual baldness.
How Do Phytosterols Help?
Recent research has focused on discovering a viable natural alternative to drugs for BPH. Beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol plant substance, has gained a lot of attention because it supports male urinary and prostate health. It does so by inhibiting the uptake of cholesterol into the blood. This redirects the conversion of cholesterol into the steroids from which the sex hormones are made. As hundreds of scientific studies have demonstrated, the cells of the prostate respond to these rejuvenated hormones and de-proliferate, supporting overall prostate health.
Beta-Sitosterol Offers a Two-Punch Benefit
Numerous recent studies show that when phytosterols in the form of nutritional supplements effectively reduce levels of total cholesterol and LDL (low-density or lousy) cholesterol.
In one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled and multi-center study, 200 men with benign prostate enlargement, who took a daily dose of 180mg of Beta-sitosterol showed a ~35% increase in urine flow, and a ~55% reduction of urine remaining in the bladder.1 In another study, 177 patients received 130mg of Beta-sitosterol a day, and experienced a similar improvement.2 And in a third study, 519 men also experienced relief.3Each of these studies provides a strong incentive for the daily use of Beta-sitosterol, either alone or in combination with other phytosterols and triterpenoids.
Can You Obtain Beta-Sitosterol From Food?
Yes, it is in vegetables, fruits, soybeans, peanuts, and peanut products. Beta-sitosterol is also present in bourbon and oils, such as olive, flaxseed, and tuna. Plant oils contain the highest concentration of phytosterols. However, you’d have to eat a lot of those foods to get a therapeutic effect. So, the recommendation is that you obtain at least 350 mg per day from a nutritional supplement.
Why Don’t Drug Companies Offer Beta-Sitosterol?
You may wonder why the major U.S. pharmaceutical companies do not offer Beta-sitosterol. The reason is that herbal extracts and natural substances cannot be patented so pharmaceutical companies don’t bother with products that don’t have a high profit margin.Fortunately, nature has given us a natural remedy to support prostate health. Supplementing with Beta Sitosterol is a good idea for all men over 49 because sooner or later, you’ll be facing hormonal imbalances. An ounce of prevention is well worth maintaining your healthy libido and lowering your risk of prostate and urinary issues.You can find Beta Sitosterol, along with nine other proven ingredients, in EffiHealth’s powerful Prostorix Prostate Health formula.
