Trouble Peeing? Try this Drug-Free Solution

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Prostate-related urinary problems are no joke.

The urges can send you flying out of bed in a split second only to find your stream is so weak it could take you all night to fully empty your bladder.

And if that weren’t bad enough, the drugs your doc recommends can really make your sex life swirl the drain.

But you deserve a better way to get full bladder relief.

Fortunately, researchers have just found a simple, drug-free way to help you get your prostate in check.

It’s called pygeum, and it’s derived from the bark of the African plum tree.

And for years, it’s been blowing the minds of scientists around the world.

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 daily 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 it 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 (enlarged prostate) in France, and is used widely in Italy.

But in the United States, the drug companies and most mainstream doctors don’t want you to know you can get such powerful relief without a prescription.

You can get pygeum as a stand-alone supplement. But you’ll also see it included in supplement formulations with other prostate-friendly ingredients like lycopene and beta-sitosterol.

Just make sure you’re getting enough. Much of the research on pygeum has focused on 100 mg doses.

Live well,
