Prostate enlargement is a very common condition that affects many men over the age of forty. Symptoms include increased urinary frequency, nighttime waking to empty the bladder, and a weak stream during urination. Clinical trials support the use of saw palmetto and stinging nettle root to address the hormonal changes associated with this aging process. Other minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids are also suggested to help discourage prostate inflammation/enlargement.

As we age, our digestive systems do not function as well as when we were young. Taking digestive enzymes helps to digest the food we eat more completely so that we are better able to absorb and utilize the nutrients from food. This is especially important if your appetite has also decreased with age.
