How to shrink an enlarged prostate?

Benign prostate hyperplasia is an increasingly common concern among our aging population.  It’s so common, in fact, that it’s almost considered a ‘normal’ part of aging itself.

For those who suffer from benign prostate hyperplasia or benign prostate hypertrophy as it’s alternately referred to, there are several treatment options to shrink or reduce the size of your prostate gland.

To start with, you should always consult the advice of your physician.  There are a number of effective medications available to shrink your prostate.  In addition, there are some natural treatment options which are considered to be effective including saw palmetto extract.

A recent study by researchers in Italy have found the herbal preparation, Pluvio® to be an effective option for reducing the lower urinary tract symptoms often associated with BPH [1].  Pluvio® is a novel combination of plant extracts including avocado and soy oil in addition to Urtica Dioica.
