Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common prostate problem in men. Almost all men will develop some enlargement of the prostate as they grow older. By age 60, 50% of men will have some signs of BPH; by age 85, 90% of men will have signs of the condition. About half of these men will develop symptoms that need to be treated and at least 40% of men can be treated with natural supplements.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be time to look into natural methods to reduce the size of your prostate! Below is an image of a healthy prostate vs an enlarged prostate (one with BPH). While your prostate may not be to that extreme, it is important that you take precautions so it does not continue to enlarge. If you are a man over the age of 45, a prostate support supplement may be important to add to your daily vitamin regiment.
Pro-State is a natural supplement with scientifically proven ingredients that help to reduce the size of your prostate and return it to a more healthy size.

Rye Grass Pollen Extract:
· Chemicals found in rye grass pollen decrease swelling (inflammation) by interfering with certain chemicals. These chemicals might also slow down the growth of prostate cancer cells.
· Rye grass fiber might promote the growth and activity of healthy bacteria in the gut. This helps to promote regularity.
· Rye grass pollen extract may affect the male hormone testosterone, relax the muscles
of the tube through which urine flows (urethra), and improve how well the bladder can
force urine out. All of these may reduce symptoms of an enlarged prostate, such as
dribbling after urinating or having to get up several times at night to urinate.
· Relieves urinary symptoms and increases strength of urine flow
Other things you can do to:
Drink Green Tea:
· The catechins in green tea regulate the secretion of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) and
PSA (prostate specific antigen), promoting normal prostate size and volume and
reducing the risk of BPH
· Likewise, the catechins in green tea have demonstrated efficacy in relieving urinary
symptoms such as frequent urination, nighttime urination and problems with urinary
· Reduced prostatic Inflammation
