Your prostate is described by experts as a firm partly muscular chestnut sized gland in males at the neck of the urethra; it produces a viscid secretion that is the fluid part of semen.
When you reach the age of 40, your prostate is likely to have grown from the size of a walnut to the size of an apricot. When you are about 60, it is possible it has become the size of a lemon.
For the reason that your prostate surrounds part of the urethra, the enlarged prostate is able to squeeze that tube. As a result you may likely have problems with urinating. Usually these problems may not appear until you’re 50 or above in age, but sometimes too they can appear earlier than that.
Experts would normally refer to the development or condition as benign prostatic hyperplasia, or simply BPH. But it is not cancerous.
Treatment for BPH are of various types including surgery, but there are also a good number of natural approaches or home remedies which experts have endorsed and studies have proven to be very effective, and in fact much safer.
If you have the following signs and symptoms in addition to the one mentioned above then you may just have an enlarged prostate, and should therefore take action:

·         Your bladder doesn’t empty completely after you urinate
·         You feel the need to go out to pee with no sensation of build-up
·         You may stop and start a number of times
·         You have to apply pressure to start any flow

Now, there are a number of natural remedies to handling these problems that come with an enlarged prostate. Aside the following actions you could apply, you should in addition adopt some important lifestyle changes such as reducing how much you drink at night and prior to going to bed, particularly drinks that contain alcohol or caffeine.

Take Green Tea
In many quarters green tea has been described by experts as a “superfood.” It is high with nutritional value; studies have shown some of its many health benefits to consist of:
·         cardiovascular protection
·         protection against certain types of cancer
·         cholesterol management
·         reduction of your risk of Alzheimer’s disease
·         reduction in your risk of getting Parkinson’s disease

Green tea has also been recognised to have positive effects on your prostate gland. But regarding green tea and your prostate, experts agree that this association is mainly due to its potency against prostate cancer, not prostate enlargement per se – going by research. Generally, studies have shown improvements in urological health in men as being associated with (black or green) tea consumption. Green tea is known to possess recognised chemoprotective properties as regards prostate cancer.
Drink Watermelon seed tea
Maybe by intuition, from way back I have found myself chewing watermelon seeds and enjoying it each time I eat this juicy red fruit; nutritional health experts have confirmed that it is indeed good!. Well, if you cannot eat the seeds and enjoy it like I do, you should at least be able to enjoy tea made from it. Watermelon seed tea has been known to be a systems cleanser; it takes care of bladder problems, as well as detoxifies the kidneys. A brief research carried out on mice showed an improvement in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels and BPH symptoms after watermelon seed extract had been introduced. Experts so concluded that Watermelon seeds will likely benefit men in like manner.

How to make your own watermelon seed tea:
  1. Grind or crush 4 tbsp. of fresh watermelon seeds.
  2. Boil the seeds in 64 oz. of water for 10 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool and refrigerate.
  4. Drink the tea within a few days.
 Enjoy Hibiscus tea (or Zobo drink)
Hibiscus tea or Zobo drink as it is locally known in Nigeria has no caffeine in it and is capable of improving your health in general – experts say. From studies, the consumption of Hibiscus tea or Zobo drink is sure to benefit your blood pressure as well as lipid; it is also trusted to possess effective anticancer properties. Regarding men’s health, Zobo is capable of also benefiting the health of your prostate, despite the fact that the research on the prostate investigated prostate cancer only and not benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate.
The somewhat sour or acerbic and spicy flavour of Hibiscus (flower) renders it pleasant for drinking, not to leave out of course its rich alluring dark red appearance. You may wish to make use of the dried or fresh hibiscus flowers to prepare your tea. For enhanced pleasantness, add honey and some drops of fresh lemon juice, and take it hot or ice cold.
Hibiscus can affect blood sugar levels as well as blood pressure, and it can act together with acetaminophen (Tylenol). Therefore ensure not to consume Zobo drink within two weeks prior to going for a surgical operation experts caution.

Eat (Lycopene)
Also very important, experts recognise the very vital food property – Lycopene; it is said to be very good for the remedy of prostate issues. So take plenty of the red fruits and vegetables e.g. tomatoes, pawpaw, watermelon, carrot, etc. Studies show that tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene available to most people. But a few other fruits and vegetables contain lower levels of this antioxidant.
