Urinary Dysfunction Due To Prostate Enlargement? Saw Palmetto Extract Could Help


Usually, the ailment of urinary dysfunction can be attributed to an obstruction in the urinary passage, which is often trigged by an enlarged prostate gland. Medically known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), this common malady goes on to become in some cases, more severe, especially among the men as they age.


What is Urinary dysfunction?

Urinary dysfunction is an umbrella term that can refer to some pain or discomfort while passing urine, urinary leakage / incontinence, or even an inability to empty the bladder completely. An increased frequency of urination during night could also be a symptom of urinary dysfunction.


Is BPH always problematic?

Prostate is basically a gland that is located right beneath the bladder among men. It is something which, as with any other body part, tends to grow as men age. In fact, it has been observed that the longer a man lives, the larger the prostate gland tends to grow. Therefore, BPH is often believed to be a normal part of a man’s growth. And hence, having BPH does not quite mean that you have a problem. The problem only surfaces when it gets enlarged beyond what is the normal size.


When the problem prolongs

The problem is experienced by men when the prostate gland tends to start pressing against the bladder, and somewhat begins to block the tubes that allow urine to flow from bladder to the urethra. This condition is not only categorically uncomfortable and irritating, but significantly affects the day to day life. Please note that a prolonged urinary dysfunction, if ignored, could lead to some serious health repercussions, including the urinary bladder or urinary tract infections, kidney stones, reduced kidney function, Chronic kidney disease (CKD) or even a complete renal failure. Therefore, It is important to get the treatment begin immediately once the problem has been diagnosed.


Saw Palmetto - natural remedy for BPH

Also known as American dwarf palm tree or cabbage palm, saw palmetto has been observed to be quite effective in managing and treating an enlarged prostate. It is, in fact, one of the best available, all-natural supplements which are actually effective. It goes a long way in not only easing the symptoms, but going by users’ claims; it also allows the gland to shrink a little in size.


How does it work?

The berries growing on the saw palmetto plant are its most effective and therapeutic part. These can be taken as it is, in dried or powdered form, as an extract, or even as an oral supplement available in markets nowadays. The benefits increase manifold when it is taken along with other prostate supplements, as recommended by the doctor. This natural remedy of Saw palmetto which works well against BPH contains an active compound called beta-sitosterol. Among various other functions, this particular compound is also responsible for inhibiting the activity of the enzymes that cause the prostate gland to grow. Not only this, it also has a tendency to bring down the elevated levels of a hormone known as DHT, something which could otherwise contribute to the condition of BPH.


More healthcare support

Apart from urinary dysfunction, people also use saw palmetto to obtain relief from various other health conditions, including bladder disorders, chronic pelvic pain, hair loss, migraine, hormonal imbalances and a decreased libido.

This particular supplement is safe for consumption and has no major side effects as such. Nonetheless, it is best to consume not more than what has been recommended by the doctor.


Other diet & lifestyle modifications

  • Ensure that you pass the urine as soon as there is an urge, holding it back for long is a bad idea, and can have side effects that concern the overall health.
  • Keep warm and indulge in at least some light exercises and activities everyday.
  • Make sure you take only prescribed set of medications, even in case of something as trivial as cold or cough.
  • Indulge in light kegel exercises, something that helps strengthen the pelvic bones.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol intake, as far as possible.
  • Avoid an intake of excessive fluids in one go.
  • Keep calm and relaxed, as far as possible. It is a universal observation that when we are stressed and anxious, we tend to urinate more frequently. Besides, for those who have been diagnosed with BPH, taking sitz bath a few times every day can help ease the region and provide some relief.
