Herbal Pills for Men's Voiding Trouble from the Issues of the Prostate?
Historical Background of Herbs for Health
Nowadays, almost having some herbs has been claimed and could be used for a better health of almost any organs in the body after exploring and collecting the information on the herbs for health in numerous tribes of different races. In general, the more remote and more indigenous the tribes are, the more the people there claimed and used them. That was how our ancestors had lived and relied on taking care of their ailments before the modern pharmaceutical agents become available to replace almost all the use of herbs claiming a better result. Besides, the pressuring commercial effects have played an important role to drive the popularity of using pharmaceutical agents into effective consumerism for better sale. Yet, the use of herbs as our ancestors did still prevails with some degree of mystery; currently, herbs are still popularly used as foods supplements without regulatory supervision.
Among these herbal foods supplements, the herbs having been used for prostate health are some among the herbs most talked about.
The Myth of Herbs for Prostate Health?
The ingredients in all kinds of prostate supplements available online have been about the same - usually including saw palmetto berries, the bark of pygeum africanum, panax ginseng, and other herbs including cough grass, damiana, hydrangea, nettles as well as some multiple vitamins like vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, B12, C, D, E, K, or minerals like zinc or lycopene-rich foods like guavas, watermelon, tomatoes (cooked), papaya, grapefruit, sweet red peppers (cooked), asparagus (cooked), Red(purple) cabbage, mango, carrots, etc., and vitamins-rich foods like fish, dark leafy greens, seeds, etc.
Overall, herbal pills have not consistently been found and proven to help improve LUTS.
In reality, can any man keep up with so much information on prostate-health-related herbs, foods, vitamins, minerals, etc.?
Yet, I don't flatly reject their use as long as the patients can, even subjectively, sense some improvement in urination as well as they can financially afford to buy. Indirectly, these herbal pills may bring some placebo effect and hints for being alert of prostate health to urge the importance of self-care and heightened self-awareness.
I doubt if there is anyone who can follow everything as touted online under the sun for commercialism and consumerism with controversial outcome. So, eat in moderation as described in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter03.html.
