Corn Silk and Saw Palmetto have been recommended by doctors and urologists for healthy healthy prostate function.

Corn Silk:

  • Corn Silk has been used for hundreds of years as an aid to men’s health. It is believed that the use of corn silk originated in Central America.
  • Traditionally it has been used to support the bladder and kidney function. Because it is so fiberous it also supports healthy digestion.
  • It is classified as a diuretic and may help to aid the secretion and flow of urine. It is also classified as a demulcent. Demulcents are defined as soothing to irritated tissues.
  • "Corn silk extract improves benign prostatic hyperplasia in experimental rat model" it the title of a study published on The National Institute of Health (Nutr Res Pract. 2017 Oct; 11(5): 373–380. Published online 2017 Sep 14. doi: 10.4162/nrp.2017.11.5.373).
    • The conclusion of this study is that corn silk extract treatment improved BPH symptoms by inhibiting the mRNA ... and decreasing the amount of 5α-R2, DHT, and PSA in serum and prostate tissue.*
  • Maysin is one of the flavonoids that exist in corn silk. To quote a recent study:  "This study was aimed to assess potential anti-cancer activity of maysin.
    • These results suggested for the first time that maysin inhibits the PC-3 cancer cell growth via stimulation of mitochondria-dependent apoptotic cell death and may have a strong therapeutic potential for the treatment of either chemo-resistant or androgen-independent human prostate cancer."

Saw Palmetto:

  • Traditional use of Saw Palmetto is to maintain a healthy prostate.
  • It has also been used for the male reproductive organ function as well.
  • There in much more information that is available on Saw Palmetto The University of Maryland Medical Center posted a great article with great information.

Pumpkin seed is also used, it contains phytosterols which have been found to be effective in promoting the prostate function.

Health Information

What is a prostate?

The prostate is a muscular gland that weighs about three-fourths of an ounce (20 grams) about the size of a small apricot. It surrounds the urethra just beneath the bladder.

What does the prostate do?

The prostate gland is a male reproductive organ whose main function is to secrete prostate fluid, one of the components of semen. The muscles of the prostate gland also help propel this seminal fluid into the urethra during ejaculation.

One component of prostate fluid an enzyme called Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) also aids in the success of sperm by liquefying semen that has thickened after ejaculation. This thinning action allows sperm to swim more freely, according to the medical reference book "Prostate Specific Antigen" (Informa Health Care, 2001). The PSA number is important to monitor as an aging man. High PSA numbers are considered to be indicators for prostate cancer. Any male under the age of 40 should have a PSA number that isnear 3.5 ng/ml. As men age the average acceptable PSA numbers change. A 40 to 59 year old man should still be between 3.5 ng/ml. A 60 to 69 year old man should test out at less tha 4.5 ng/ml and a man that is beyond the age of 70 years old should be less than 6.5 ng/ml. Men with PSA numbers that are above those thresholds should have a prostate exam and possibly even a prostate biopsy as a precaution that there is no cancer present.

What is BPH?

BPH is an acronym that stands for benign prostatic hyperplasia. This is a disease that affects men's prostate gland as men age. It is estimated by OSU Medical that ofer 50% of men over 60 years of age suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. I want to explain what is actually happening to the prostate effected by BPH.

With BPH, the prostate gets larger. This is a natural part of aging. When the prostate is enlarged, it can irritate or block the bladder. A common symptom of BPH is the need to urinate often. This can be as frequent as every one to two hours. Most men notice the more frequent need to urinate especially at night. There are other symptoms of BPH as well.

  • Other symptoms include:
    • Feeling that the bladder is full, even right after urinating.
    • Feeling that urinating "can't wait"!
    • Weak urine flow.
    • Dribbling of urine.
    • The need to stop and start urinating several times.
    • Trouble starting to urinate.
    • The need to push or strain to urinate.
