Prostate health is no laughing matter. Enlarged or swollen prostates are the cause of discomfort for lots of men. Especially those over 75. Beta-Sitosterol is a plant sterol that has been strongly linked with an ability to combat those symptoms and give you the peace of mind you need to get a good night's sleep, free from annoying trips to the loo.
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition amongst men that affects the prostate. So much so, in fact, that roughly half of all men over the age of 75 will suffer from it at some stage. The prostate is a small gland found uniquely in men which is located between the pelvis and the bladder.
Primarily, the prostate's function is to produce a thick white liquid which is then mixed with sperm from the testicles to create semen. But because of the location of the prostate, it is often associated with urinary tract problems too.
BPH is often a cause of these problems as it involves the prostate swelling until it presses on the bladder and urinary tract, stopping them from working properly. Symptoms of BPH range from needing to urinate often to difficulty urinating and, perhaps most annoyingly, urinating frequently at night.
Swanson Ultra High Potency Beta-Sitosterol utilises biotechnology derived from Pine trees to help combat symptoms of BPH at their core. Beta-Sitosterol is a phytosterol that has been correlated with positive prostate health outcomes for several years now. What makes Swanson Ultra High Potency Beta-Sitosterol complex so superior is that it also features Zinc and Selenium as well as 75% Beta-Sitosterol concentration.
While there are a number of Beta-Sitosterol supplements out there that boast similar results, few can match the sheer potency of Swanson Ultra High Potency Beta-Sitosterol. In fact, it smashes the industry standard of 60mg with a high-potency, formula containing an impressive 320mg of the active phytosterol.
By also including high-absorption forms of selenium and zinc it offers you powerful prostate nourishment like no other.
Although Beta-Sitosterol occurs naturally in foods, it does so in relatively minute measures. You'd need to eat a lot of fruit and vegetables to even come close to the amount contained in this supplement.
But Beta-Sitosterol's benefits don't just stop there. It is also a fantastic way to treat high cholesterol. Studies have demonstrated an impressive ability to lower levels of LDL, or "bad" cholesterol; while leaving levels of HDL ("good" cholesterol) well alone to flourish. By reducing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestines, it can offer all of us greater protection from heart disease and BPH.
