Prosvent is a supplement specifically aimed at prostate health in men. Claiming to ease the symptoms of prostate hypertrophy in as little as a 30-day period, the supplement delivers results without any side effects.
A walnut-shaped gland, the prostate is located between bladder and penis in men. Though prostate deals with semen production, a fluid that nourishes and protects the sperms, it has no direct role in urination. However, the situation is complicated because of the fact that urethra, a small tube carrying the urine from the bladder, makes its exit between the two lobes of prostate and gets hard-pressed in certain conditions.
Aging brings about many changes in the human body beyond our control and prostate hypertrophy is one of them. The prostate increases to double its size at puberty and by the age of 25-30, it starts to grow again. For some individuals, this growth takes the form of benign prostatic hyperplasia. With proper supplementation, relief can be sought without going through surgical procedures or taking any medications. Prosvent claims to be the trusted brand for over a decade in the US. Let us evaluate the efficiency of this particular herbal supplement.
The claims made by Prosvent
Prosvent is claimed by the manufacturer to be a safe and natural remedy to alleviate the urinary symptoms generally encountered in men entering the middle age cohort and afar. The prevalence of BPH that presents with clinical documented symptoms is about 8% during the forties, which increases to 50% at the age of 51-60 years. The signs and symptoms of benign prostate hypertrophy are usually bothersome in elderly people; however, with proper care and guidelines, relief is achieved.
Prosvent is recommended by Harvard trained specialists and promises the following aid
- Reduces the urgency of micturition
- Lowers the frequency of urination
- Improves the weak stream
- Aids in a complete emptying of bladder
- Cuts back the washroom visits and improve sleep pattern
- No drugs or surgeries required
- A safe remedy without any side effects
- Clinically tested with validated results
With all the aforementioned benefits combined, the result is a rejuvenated individual after a complete bladder emptying experience with the added benefits of a good night sleep.
The ingredients of Prosvent
Manufactured by Thera Botanics, Prosvent is a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that have sound evidence of delivering results in the form of superior prostate health and urinary functions.
The causes of benign prostate hyperplasia are attributed to changing hormonal levels, lifestyle adaptations and so on. Whatever the case scenario, BPH can severely disrupt the normal functioning of daily life activities. Typically, aging men clinically represent with symptoms as an effort to start urinating, dribbling at the end of characteristic weak urine stream (stop and go pattern).
With the progression of the condition, the workload on the bladder increases. The bladder is a muscular organ, which weakens with constant straining efforts at emptying. The consequence is
- Frequency and urgency to urinate
- A feeling of need to urinate even when finished
- A sensation of incontinence
- Frequent nighttime visits to the bathroom
The ultimate clinical picture is of an easily irritated, lethargic and fatigued individual.
To combat all these symptoms, Prosvent delivers a comprehensive combination of ingredients, which are as follow
- Nettle root extract
- Pygeum Africanum
- Pumpkin Seed Oil
- Saw Palmetto
- Vitamin D
Prosvent comes with a guarantee of delivering results within 30-days. This is an amazing promise for individuals who go through the distress and agony of an incomplete bladder. Imagine for few seconds the misery one experiences when faced with a bladder infection ( burning and incontinence, dribbling of urine, a feeling of incomplete emptying etc) while the patient of BPH suffers the major part of his wake up time going through this quandary.
Functional analysis of the ingredients contained in Prosvent
Beta-sitosterol is a plant derivative, also known as plant-cholesterol. Considered a natural remedy for many ailments regarding prostate, it is structurally similar to cholesterol but there are functional differences. Beta-sitosterol is an alternative to conventional drugs, preferably used for urinary complaints arising from prostatic hypertrophy because its natural course of action does not cause side effects.
The clinically validated efficiency of Beta-sitosterol is on the record. In one of the studies conducted in 2000, four placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized studies revealed the benefits of sitosterol in improving the urinary complaints encountered in BPH.
Nettle root extract
Another alternative to conventional medicine, nettle root extract is a time-honored remedy for urinary complaints in men. Being an anti-inflammatory agent as well as acting as a diuretic, nettle root extract is an ideal candidate for easing the urinary complaints in BPH. Backed by research studies, this herbal component acts as an adjunct to others in prostate supplements.
The extract from the bark of African cherry tree, Pygeum Africanum, which is still used in herbal medicine, became known in 1960, when researchers in Europe began trials on its efficacy regarding bladder and prostate health in men. Being a phytosterol as beta-sitosterol, the herbal component inhibits the production of dihydrotestosterone in the body, thus reducing the risks for BPH development. It improves urinary flow, residual urine volume and thus reduces the urgency and frequency associated with BPH.
Saw palmetto is another source of beta-sitosterol and it exerts its effects via the following modes
- Inhibits the activity of 5 alpha-reductase, an enzyme responsible for the promotion of prostate cell growth
- Reduces the levels of dihydrotestosterone, another hormone causing prostate growth
Various researchers have established the efficiency of saw palmetto in relieving the urinary signs and symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. Saw palmetto is another ingredient that acts best in synergy with other herbal ingredients as stinging nettle root extract.
Pumpkin seed oil
Enriched with carotenoids and omega 3 fatty acids, Pumpkin seed oil exerts its effects by inhibiting the prostate cell growth by decreasing the levels of dihydrotestosterone. The oil also contains zinc, which is an absolute essential for prostate health and vigor. 2004 study results showed the benefits of the combination of pumpkin seed oil and saw palmetto in easing the signs and symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate.
Prostate gland contains a large amount of zinc in its fluids, showing the significance of this trace mineral in prostate health. The importance of zinc in maintaining a normal prostate size is shown by many valid pieces of research.
Lycopene and Vitamin D are non-active ingredients in Prosvent, their role in urinary complaints caused by an enlarged prostate is controversial and still under study. However, vitamin D is essential for many other systems and contributes to an overall well-being.
The above discussion makes it clear that any case scenario where the unwanted and non-required growth of the prostate gland can be retarded, it eases the pressure on the urethra and brings a relief to the urinary complaints.
