Why Does A Prostate Grow

An excessively enlarged prostate results in a disease known as benign
Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Enlarged Prostate Treatments

There are also natural remedies that may work
to combat enlarged prostate symptoms.

Saw Palmetto

  • Saw palmetto is an herbal remedy that comes from the fruit of a type of palm tree.
  • It’s been used in alternative medicine for centuries to relieve urinary symptoms, including
    those caused by an enlarged prostate.
  • According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a few small-scale studies have suggested that saw palmetto might be effective for relieving BPH symptoms.
  • However, the NIH reports that when larger studies were conducted, they didn’t find saw
    palmetto any more effective than a placebo.
  • Research continues to look into the anti-inflammatory & hormone-blocking properties that
    saw palmetto may have & its possible use in combination with other medications.
  • Saw palmetto is safe to use, but minor side effects can be upset stomach & headache.


  • This herbal medication is a mixture taken from different plants that contain cholesterol
    -like substances called sitosterols or phytosterols (plant-based fats)
  • Several studies have suggested that beta-sitosterol can relieve urinary symptoms of
    BPH, including the strength of urine flow.
  • Some scientists have also suggested that it’s these fatty substances like beta-sitosterol,
    which is also found in saw palmetto, that are actually doing the work.
  • There haven’t been any major side effects reported with the use of beta-sitosterol.
  • However, doctors still don’t know all the long-term effects of this natural therapy.

Going The Natural Route

  • It’s important to remember that just because a supplement is labeled 'natural' doesn’t
    always mean it’s safe, healthy or effective.
  • Remember that the FDA doesn’t regulate herbal remedies like it does prescription &
    over-the-counter drugs.
  • That means you can’t be totally sure that what’s listed on the label is inside the bottle.
  • Herbal remedies can also cause side effects & interact with other medications you take.
  • Check with your doctor before trying any natural supplement.
