Men's Health > Penis Health > The Prostate Gland

The prostate is a small round gland (about the size of a walnut).  Found only in men, it forms part of the male reproductive system and is located directly below the bladder and wraps around the urethra.

The prostate often continues to grow beyond the age of 40-45 years with abnormal enlargement occurring in 50% of men over 60, and up to 80% of men over 70, which over time which may affect the passing of urine.

Symptoms of prostate enlargement are the need to urinate frequently, or having the feeling that the bladder does not empty completely, or urine dribbling after you have finished peeing.

Prostate problems all have similar symptoms like:

  • Discomfort deep inside the pelvis
  • Waking frequently at night to urinate
  • Sudden or urgent need to urinate
  • Difficulty in starting to urinate
  • Slow flow of urine and difficulty in stopping
  • Discomfort when urinating
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • Decrease in libido (sex urge)
  • Reduced ability to get an erection

Prostate Function
The main function of the prostate gland is to produce an alkaline fluid which mixes with semen during ejaculation protecting the sperm in the acid environment of the vagina and increase the chance of fertilisation.

Prostate Disease
Although prostate enlargement is very common, it may not be problem enough to require any treatment, though there are many nutritional supplements available from health stores which support normal function and may even inhibit excess growth.

Prostate health can be maintained by good diet and nutrition, a healthy lifestyle with adequate exercise, prostrate massage and nutritional supplements for the prostate such as Ayurstate from India herbs.

Prostrate massage
Once a popular treatment for prostate disorders, many still believe that regular prostrate massages will not only help reduce prostate enlargement, but may help to prevent prostate cancer.

While general fitness is important, one important exercise to practice is the pelvic floor lift or kegal exercise. This is the same exercise that is advised for women to help maintain reproductive health and it works equally well for men.

  • The exercise: simply contract or squeeze the muscles around the anus and hold for a few seconds, release and repeat 10 - 50 times daily.
    Doing this stimulates blood flow to your reproductive system, massages the prostate and also helps to maintain libido.

Prostate cancer
The most common male cancer (after skin cancer), prostate cancer does not usually show symptoms until it is well developed as it grows in the outer section of the gland.  The best way of detection is to have a rectal examination.

It is recommended that all men over 50 exam every 2 - 5 years or when peeing is a problem. The rectal exam is very simple and only takes a minute. (The doctor inserts a finger into the rectum and can feel the prostate).

The other method of detection is a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) Blood Test a test which examines a protein in the blood. The level of PSA rises in men who have benign enlargement of the prostate gland, an infection of the prostate gland or cancer of the prostate. This method is widely used, but also criticized as being erroneous and even when positive,  a rectal exam and possibly a biopsy will be done to establish the presence of cancerous tissue.

Treatments are often radiation treatment and/or surgery (prostatectomy) to remove the cancer or even the whole prostate, or radiation treatment.

A natural supplement geared towards optimizing and managing your overall prostate health and recommended for all prostate problems.

The ingredients in Ayurstate comprise a Proprietary Blend that goes to work directly on the entire male reproductive system and genitalia with positive impact on hormonal levels, immune response, and prostate health. Simply take one Ayurstate capsule two times per day to maintain and intensify these effects on your prostate over time. For optimal results, please incorporate lifestyle guidance provided to you through free consultation with our staff of Ayurveda doctors. Learn more.
