What is the prostate?
The prostate is a small gland which sits below the bladder in men and this gland has a tendency to get bigger as men get older. Half of men over the age of 50 are affected with BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), also known as an enlarged prostate, with the figure increasing to affect 80% of men by the age of 80. All in all, BPH currently affects 3.2 million men in the UK. The process usually starts after the age of 45 but can occur earlier or later in some men. 

The early symptoms of something being not quite right is the need to urinate more frequently – especially at night, having a weak or interrupted urine flow and feeling unable to completely empty your bladder. If someone experiences these symptoms then they should consult their healthcare professional for advice or diagnosis. Although not life threatening, the condition can affect the quality of life for those suffering and of course those around them. No one likes being woken by frequent midnight toilet trips. 

Five ways to spot a potential sufferer
✔ Male usually over 50 and grumpy from lack of sleep (see next point) 
✔ It’s 3am and he’s on his second toilet trip, disrupting his sleep once again 
✔ He can tell you where the nearest toilet is within a five mile radius 
✔ You’ve only just left the house and he’s already asking “Are we there yet?” 
✔ He’s just been to the toilet but feels the sudden urge to go again

What can sufferers do about it?
If diagnosis of an enlarged prostate (BPH) is given, it does not have to be a ‘grin and bear it’ situation. There are various options for treatment including prescription drugs, and for some, surgery may be an option. There is also a licensed traditional herbal remedy (THR) for the relief of urinary symptoms of an enlarged prostate, A.Vogel’s Prostasan Saw Palmetto capsules.

Prostasan contains an extract of Saw Palmetto berries, rich in oil, which contains active ingredients that help with the urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. Prostasan Saw Palmetto capsules are easy to take and can be used long term. It can help give relief to the uncomfortable effects of an enlarged prostate, bringing uninterrupted sleep closer. It is essential that men have a diagnosis of BPH before taking Saw Palmetto in order to rule out other conditions such as prostatitis (a bacterial infection), or the odd case of prostate cancer.

This is an ideal time to try Prostasan, as we have a special offer in Elixir at the moment with £2.50 off during the month of May 2016. Definitely worth it for that uninterrupted sleep!
