Prostate Problems? Try This African Cure
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you’re dealing with prostate problems, nighttime can be a little like dancing the Hokey Pokey.
You’ve constantly got one foot in the bathroom, and one foot out.
The urge to pee can come on suddenly, waking you up several times a night. But sometimes just getting your stream started or fully emptying your bladder can be a real challenge.
The good news is that there’s a simple, natural remedy that can help tame even the trickiest prostate.
And it comes from an amazing tree that traditional African healers have been using for centuries.
Pygeum, a supplement derived from the bark of the African plum tree, has been wowing scientists around the world in study after study. And it may be the next big breakthrough treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
You see, pygeum is loaded with phytosterols that can actually calm the runaway inflammation that can make your prostate swell up like a balloon.
In one study out of Europe, men who took 50 mg. of pygeum for two months experienced an amazing 40 percent reduction in prostate symptoms in just two months.
And the good news didn’t stop there.
These same men were getting up one-third fewer times at night to pee. How wonderful would that be to finally get the sleep you need without your prostate calling the shots?
Even better, a massive analysis of 18 studies found that pygeum can improve peak urine flow by 23 percent.
So no more annoying drips and dribbles.
Pygeum is backed by dozens of studies – so why aren’t more men with enlarged prostates being given it?
Well, in some countries they are. In fact, it’s the most common treatment for BPH in France, and is used widely in Italy.
But in the United States, the drug companies and most mainstream doctors are interested in pushing drugs like Proscar, which can cause dizziness and even kill your sex drive.
You can pick up pygeum pretty easily as a stand-alone supplement. But you’ll also see it included in supplement formulations with other prostate-friendly ingredients like saw palmetto or beta-sitosterol.
Just make sure you’re getting enough. Much of the research on pygeum has focused on doses from 50-100 mg.
