Olivino for your Healthy Prostate
The prostate is a small gland that is part of the male reproductive system. As men age, their prostate can become larger. This is normal for most men, but it can also become problematic.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)is a common, non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate that occurs as men age. Eight of every 10 men eventually develop BPH. About 50% of men in their 50's and 90% of men over age of 85 develop it. BPH may obstruct part of the urethra leading to:
Increased urinary frequency
Excess urination at night
Slow and/or weak urine stream
Sense of incomplete bladder emptying
Lycopene, the tomato extract in Olivino, accumulates in the prostate and may exert a beneficial effect on this vital organ through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
