Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) 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 herbs and nutrients to address the hormonal and inflammatory changes associated with the aging process. Some minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids are also suggested to help discourage prostate inflammation and enlargement.

Phosphatides are lipid substances that make up the protective membrane covering every cell, including those found in the brain. Normally the body manufactures its own phosphatides from nutrients provided by the diet. However, if the diet is deficient in any one of a number of these key nutrients, the body may not make a sufficient amount for healthy brain function. For enhanced memory and cognitive skills, we recommend Pathway’s PS-100. Along with 100 mg of phosphatidylserine, it contains other beneficial phosphatides and fatty acids such as phosphatidylcholine, phoshatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol.
