We often talk about women's issues, while little is said about men's issues.

Even the man in the course of his life can suffer from some ailments and need support. In particular, the problems it may encounter concern the prostate, a gland that is fundamental for the well-being of the urinary tract.

They are annoyances that can appear with advancing age but it happens more and more often that they appear prematurely. We talk about problems such as prostatitis and benign prostatic hypertrophy, which cause many difficulties in everyday life such as pelvic pain, groin pain, urinary disorders and discomfort in sexual life.

There are plants and ingredients that can help humans in these cases:

  • Serenoa ( Serenoa repens ): plant native to North America. Contains many active ingredients such as phytosterols, essential oils and carotenoids. Prostatic hypertrophy and prostatitis is caused by the proliferation of the androgen hormone dihydrotestosterone which forms a bond with the androgen receptor. The serenoa produces beta-sitosterol which prevents the transformation from testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, preventing it from binding to the androgen receptor and the cell proliferation typical of prostatic hypertrophy and also causes alopecia.
  • Pumpkin seeds (Cucurbita pepo): they contain betasterols structurally similar to androgens and estrogens. These substances have been shown to be useful for lowering cholesterol levels and improving the symptoms of prostatic hypertrophy, an effect that seems to be linked in part to the ability to inhibit the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, and in part to the obstacle offered to the link between androgen receptors and dihydrotestorone .

  • Cranberry ( Vaccinium macrocarpon) : supports the functionality and health of the urinary tract, as it is rich in anthocyanins and antioxidants .
  • Nettle extract (Urtica urens): diuretic and purifying plant. It contains many active ingredients phytosterols, lignans and polysaccharides, which have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action. It also has restorative and remineralizing properties.

  • Wheat germ oil (Triticum vulgare): promotes the drainage of liquids and supports the functionality of the urinary tract .
  • Zinc : Affects the metabolism of androgens by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, reduces prolactin secretion and makes the intestine less prone to inflammation.
