Prostate Health and Problems Peeing
The average bladder holds 2 cups of liquid—with the urge to pee usually kicking in at about half this.
A swollen prostate can reduce this threshold even further.
A Swollen What-state?
Wondering just what exactly a Prostate gland is? Rest assured, you’re not the only one: though all men do indeed possess a prostate, unfortunately the things don’t come with an owner’s manual.
In essence, it’s a walnut-sized (usually) gland beneath your bladder. Its main function is making sure your body has enough seminal fluid to protect and nourish sperm.
Benign, But Still a Pain
As men get older, an increased need to visit the bathroom is common. Often urine flow weakens too, and in some cases there may be some pain or discomfort.
Don’t stress too much, though. This isn’t necessarily a sign of prostate cancer at all. For men, natural aging and prostate enlargement go hand in hand. This is called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia—which translated into English basically means: “your prostate’s getting bigger but it’s not a cancer.”
BPH is very common. Almost half of all men will be affected to some degree by BPH, by their late-fifties. By the age of seventy this figure increases to 90%! Some men’s health experts even argue that all men will eventually experience some degree of BPH, if they live long enough.
Don’t Just Grin and Bear It!
If increasing bathroom visits are interrupting business meetings, nights out at the cinema, even your sleep, it’s time to do something about it. BPH may be common but it’s not immutable.
Don’t take prostate discomfort sitting down. Prostate Powerflow with Saw Palmetto, Lycopene, Zinc and Selenium, will both assist to reduce prostate inflammation and promote general good prostate health, helping prevent future problems.
How about you? How many bathroom breaks do you find yourself taking these days?
