4. Saw Palmetto

This is usually the first thing men think of when they think of prostate health. It is often used as the first line of defense against BPH. Many urologists will recommend taking this herb if you have early symptoms, such as frequent urination. It works by blocking the production of the hormone that causes the prostate to enlarge. Although scientists aren’t sure why this hormone causes this enlargement, but they do know that saw palmetto stops the body from making more of it. This herb helps millions of men every year and has absolutely no side effects what so ever. If you find that you don’t get relief from taking this herb, try another brand. The exact active ingredient in this herb has yet to be identified so the many different formulations that exist can be the problem. The herb works, without a doubt, so try another brand if you don’t get the results you want within 30 days.

 

5. Red Clover

Used to treat a wide variety of issues – from the hot flashes of menopause to infertility in women to psoriasis – red clover is full of isoflavones, the same protein that is found in soybeans. The problem with consuming soybeans is that they are mostly GMO nowadays. Red clover not only has been shown to inhibit prostate and other cancerous tumors, but it can also help those with BPH. One study showed that red clover improved urine flow and lowered other problematic symptoms by as much as 23 percent.

 

6. African Tree Bark

This remedy is so popular in Africa and Europe that this tree is now on the endangered species list! African Tree Bark (pygeum africanum) brings relief from many symptoms and reduces the swelling of the prostate by reducing inflammation. Many people use this bark along with saw palmetto for best results.
