Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a huge problem for men, especially as they get older. It’s caused by a benign swelling of the prostate, which can obstruct urine flow and make a man’s day-to-day life absolutely miserable.
Some men eventually turn to prescription drugs to deal with their troubling symptoms. But, as I’ve reported before, research links these drugs with an increased risk of developing Type II diabetes.
Plus, there are many effective, natural options to prevent (and even reverse) BPH—without resorting to harmful drugs. In fact, a recent study from the University of Graz, Austria demonstrated that a natural seed oil extract can “significantly” relieve the symptoms of BPH…
More than one-third of men experience dramatic improvements
In the new study, researchers looked at 60 men suffering from moderate to severe BPH. The men took 500 mg of pumpkin seed extract daily before bedtime for three months.
Over the next three months, the men recorded the frequency of their nighttime trips to the bathroom (nocturia) in a bladder diary. The postvoid residual (PVR) urine volume (urine left in the bladder after voiding) was determined through ultrasound.
After just three months, the men experienced a 30 percent reduction, on average, in symptoms. Specifically, nocturia and PVR “significantly” decreased. And the alleviation of symptoms had a “high impact” on the men’s quality of life.
So, if you suffer from BPH, talk to your doctor about pumpkin seed extract. You can even show them this Dispatch for the science. Or, you can simply eat more pumpkin seeds.
Perhaps you’ve even got some pumpkins growing in your garden…when they’re ready to harvest, you can roast the seeds and keep them for a tasty, prostate-healthy snack. Sprinkle them with a little sea salt, black pepper, paprika, or dried herb seasonings.
