As soon as people hear the word Prostate, the word cancer immediately springs to mind due to what the media publishes. This shadows the fact that most men who regrettably suffer from prostate symptoms are not carrying a life-threatening disease.

One common issue is that most men are not even aware of what their prostate is. Admittedly doctors and scientists still do not fully understand it's functions but what is known is that it is a gland located underneath the bladder, surrounding the urethra and is partly reasonable for the production of semen. Although it appears to be a singular organ, it actually has two separate parts offering an explanation for the differences in potential diseases.

With age comes an increase in size of the prostate, usually after the age of 50. With it's expansion, the prostate squeezes the urethra. This narrows the opening of the bladder (also known as obstruction), slowing down the flow of urine. This is unfortunately a symptom that is not easy to spot.

There are many different products that can offer some for of relief for such problems. An alternative remedy could be Vega's Prostate Formula, containing antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and herbs that could be beneficial for your urinary system. Lifeplan's Saw Palmetto is another option, used to maintain male reproductive health. Or you can try A.Vogel's Prostasan which is targeted to relieve urinary symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
