Peak Health Care Products Prostate Control is designed to treat the symptoms of enlarged prostate known as BPH or Benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Prostate Control contains natural ingredients (Green Tea or EGCG, Pomegranate Extract, Tomato Lycopene, Selenium, Zinc & Copper) that are well known for improving irritable symptoms such as:
- Hesitancy - difficulty in starting to urinate
- Weak urinary stream and urine dribbling
- Incomplete bladder emptying
- Need to urinate frequently, especially at night
- Wetting accidents
- Pain or burning with urination & blood in urine or semen
As men get older, they go through Andropause, the male form of menopause and the prostate enlarges. Enlargement of the prostate is called BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). BPH is a nonmalignant enlargement. It is not cancerous.
Prostate Control helps prevent the conversion in the prostate from testosterone to DHT and estrogen, and helps breakdown and reduce the DHT and and estrogen levels already in the prostate so the body maintains a healthy level of both EHT and estrogen.
When BPH occurs the male hormone, Testosterone, in the prostate is converted to Dihydrotestosterone, DHT, which causes prostate cell multiplication. The more DHT, the more it enlarges the prostate.
Testosterone in the prostate also converts to the female hormone Estrogen, which, in large amounts in the body, enlarges the prostate.
The enlarged prostate with its BPH symptoms must be treated to relieve the lower urinary tract. If the DHT and Estrogen levels are left untreated, a certain percentage of these cases will lead to prostate cancer.
The herbs and ingredients in Prostate Control relieve the symptoms of BPH which could return without it. The additional herbs in Prostate Control help to insure that the prostate doe not enlarge again and bring back all the symptoms.
