1 Tiny Vitamin Helps Shrink Your Enlarged Prostate
One of the biggest problems that we as men face as we get older is BpH, benign prostatic hyperplasia. The prostate gland starts to grow and as it grows, it can choke off that urethra that runs through it. And we can get many different types of symptoms, including increased urination. Difficult.
These starting and maintaining a urine stream, a weak urine stream, urinary urgency, a feeling of incomplete bladder emptying and urinary retention. And these symptoms can definitely significantly impact the quality of our life.
We as men have testosterone. We have the beard, the deep voice, our male characteristics. It affects our growth, our muscles and many more things. But what happens is as time goes on, that testosterone converts to dihydrotestosterone.
And the enzyme five alpha reductase is the key enzyme that allows this to happen. So what happens is, as we get too much of this dihydrotestosterone, this leads to hypertrophy or hyperplasia of our prostate that continues to grow bigger, bigger, and it actually makes us more bald as well. It allows our hair follicles to start falling out.
So too much of this dihydro hydrotestosterone can be quite on the downside. And on the plus side, so these types of drugs that you hear about, the pharmaceutical drugs, what it does, it inhibits the enzyme of this alpha five reductase to take place, preventing the change of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone.
So it doesn’t happen. So there are other herbs which I’ll get into after, but there is one fat soluble vitamin they have found that could do wonderful things to help shrink the prostate. That’s vitamin D. And now medicine has brought out an awareness to people called chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
And this is what we call cpps. And this deals with imbalances of muscles because maybe incorrect sitting posture, imbalances of the pelvis, pregnancy, obesity, just weak core muscles, certain habitual habits that you may be doing all day long, weakening these muscles from post maybe traumatic injuries.
And when these muscles become imbalanced in the lower pelvic floor, we then develop trigger points. And those trigger points are referred to those areas that potentially affect the rectal area, the prostate area, the female area.
So if it’s affecting the male parts, the prostate, it may appear like it’s inflamed because of this imbalance. So then we go to the medical doctor, the urologist, and they give us antiinflammatories or antibiotics because they’re maybe saying, okay, we don’t believe in this non bacterial prostatitis. Because you’re having symptoms.
It’s definitely bacterial. They treat it the same way. So I’m sure many of you men can understand that. You’ve been to doctors, they put you on antibiotics and it’s not even bacterial related. That’s what they do. Unfortunately, that’s not the answer.
So let me just share real quick some quick studies. I’ll just briefly touch on them and I’ll put them in the description below. About vitamin D this first article was about vitamin D and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
And in this study they say that over 50% of men over age 50 will have the disease, along with a probability of 90% of the men over the age 80 that will have enlarged prostates. But the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in the male urological population represents a direct correlation between BPH, which is by nine, prostatic hypertrophy, and vitamin D. They show that 6000 ius a day have shown to decrease prostate volume in BPH patients.
In another study, vitamin D deficiency as a potential marker of benign prostatic hyperplasia. And the conclusion of this study was that there was a relationship between the presence of vitamin D deficiency and prostate growth associated with urinary symptoms likely attributed to the pathophysiologically similarity. The study suggests that vitamin D deficiency may be the marker of BPH.
Let me share a few other remedies that’s been helpful for many people. From beta ceterol to salt palmetto to pygium to rye grass to lycapine, lycopene has been extremely effective in preventing testosterone to dihydrotestosterone as well as these that I just mentioned.
I like, believe it or not, zinc, because a big, big amount of zinc that’s stored in our body is stored in our prostate. Zinc does wonderful things, not only for our immune system, even vitamin C.
But one of the biggest problems that I found with people who have these conditions is a poor diet, lots of refined and processed sugars, not getting enough sleep, a person that sits a lot, particularly those that even bike, being on those small seats, it can really affect and irritate the prostate and those who don’t exercise or stretch.
Because I would recommend that if you’re having prostate problems, try doing some lower pelvic floor exercises or stretches and you’re going to say, which ones do I use? Well, just type in lower pelvic floor stretches and you’ll get some great ones.
You can do the frog, you can do just kind of spread your legs out, you can bring your knees up and spread them out. There’s all different ways of doing different exercises.
I don’t have the time to go into this particular video, but I can promise you that if you’ve been on these different types of drugs or these natural supplements or you’ve been on antibiotics or anti inflammatories, you’ve been in the sits baths and nothing seems to work with you, start doing some lower pelvic floor stretches, you’ll be amazed that one little thing may make a huge difference for you.
That by you just listening to this video, just potentially doing those lower pelvic floor stretches, a few of those, you’ll hopefully thank me later because that may be your answer. Not all be coming from that hyperplasia or that BPH that you’re experiencing.
So I hope. Oh, by the way, with your vitamin D, I know a lot of people are asking how much do I take? Well, according to what’s recommended, 600, 800 I use. Not enough. The problem here also if you’re taking your vitamin D, you’re not taking it with fat or taking it with your food, you’re not going to be assimilating that vitamin D.
And the problem here, even with supplements, if you’re taking 1000 ius or 2000 ius or 5000 ius, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to assimilate all that like someone else will. Obviously you can get your vitamin D from sun, but as we get older it gets harder. Plus too much sun is not good for our skin because of the uv rays, uva, uvbs.
So I like to start out about 2000 I use if I was going to tell someone and then eventually it’s good to get your vitamin D check maybe a couple of months later and I take 5000 ius myself for years. And my vitamin D level is like in the works for me.
But you may take 2000 I use and it may get up in the, but I can tell you that the greatest deficiency that we have besides magnesium is vitamin D. And vitamin D has been correlated. When we look back with COVID I’m not going to go there, but the people that were really sick all had low vitamin D levels and they’re finding that people who are experiencing more problems with the prostate because vitamin D does more than just our immune system, low vitamin D levels.
And as we increase these vitamin D levels, people have been responding much more favorably with their prostate issue. Better urination, doesn’t have to go to the bathroom as often. Better sex life, whatever it may be, I just hope that it will help you so make sure your vitamin D levels are up.
I hope you found this video helpful. And again, those extra little remedies are really good remedies as well. A lot of times you’ll find formulas that have all those different things in it. But really make sure your vitamin D levels up and do those pelvic floor exercises.
Hopefully you’ll thank me later. Anyways, please share this with your friends and family. Leave your comments below. And most important, make it a great day. I’m Dr. Alan Mandel.
