PSA: THE 'MUST-HAVE' PRODUCT FOR MEN
PSA, or Prostate Specific Advantage, might not be the usual Hammer supplement that is designed for performance during racing and training, but as part of the Well Being Range by Hammer, it will most definitely keep you healthier and more able to achieve your PB!
Prostate health is probably something that you and I would rather not think about. However, it's a topic that men just can't afford to ignore, because most of us, if not all of us, are likely to develop prostate enlargement at some point in our lives.
Here are some eye-opening facts that you may not know about enlarged prostate:
- The prevalence of Prostate enlargement increases dramatically after the age of 40. (Up to 10% of men in their 30s experience BPH, so it's not just an "after-40" issue.)
- The incidence of BPH is 50% or higher for all men at the age of 50.
- The percentage increases even more with each passing decade.
Fortunately, PSA Caps is the product designed precisely for these purposes, and ever since we introduced it a few years ago, thousands of men have benefited greatly. PSA Caps is an all-natural formula that helps reduce the symptoms of BPH and other prostate disorders.
BPH - The male-only malady
As a man ages, it's common for the prostate gland to become enlarged; at some stage in life almost all men are affected. When this occurs - the condition is called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) - it puts pressure on the urethra, the canal that carries urine and semen out of the body. Increased pressure on the urethra causes urinary tract discomforts such as retention and urgency. Over time, severe BPH can cause serious problems, including urinary tract infections, bladder or kidney damage, bladder stones and incontinence. While the cause of BPH is not well understood, it is an extremely important issue for all men to address and resolve before it becomes problematic. Prevention is better than cure!
What causes BPH?
The specific cause(s) of this nearly universal disorder among older men is unknown, but most likely involves hormonal changes. The following three theories, in some combination, identify the main culprits currently being investigated for BPH. The formula of PSA Caps addresses all three.
- Higher estrogen levels within the prostate gland- Throughout their lives, men produce testosterone, an important male hormone and small amounts of estrogen, primarily a female hormone. As men age, the amount of active testosterone in the blood decreases, leaving a higher proportion of estrogen.
- Increased levels of DHT- Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a substance derived from testosterone in the prostate, which may help control its growth. Accumulation of DHT may encourage the growth of cells and the enlargement of the Prostrate. Scientists have also noted that men who do not produce DHT do not develop BPH.
- "Reawakened" cells- Some researchers suggest that BPH may develop as a result of "instructions" given to cells early in life. According to this theory, BPH occurs because cells in one section of the gland follow these instructions and "reawaken" later in life. These "reawakened" cells then deliver signals to other cells in the gland, instructing them to grow or making them more sensitive to hormones that influence growth.
Many symptoms of BPH stem from obstruction of the urethra and gradual loss of bladder function, which results in incomplete emptying of the bladder. The symptoms of BPH vary, but the most common ones involve changes or problems with urination, such as:
- Hesitant, interrupted, and/or weak stream
- Urgency and leakage or dribbling
- More frequent urination, especially at night
NB! The size of the prostate does not always determine how severe the obstruction or the symptoms will be.
It is important for men to tell their doctor about urinary problems such as those described above. In most cases these symptoms suggest BPH, but they can also signal other, more serious conditions that require prompt treatment. These conditions, including prostate cancer, can be ruled out only by a doctor's exam. If the bladder is permanently damaged, treatment for BPH may be ineffective. When BPH is found and treated in its earlier stages, there is a lower risk of developing such complications.
Who needs PSA Caps?
- Males in their 30s, primarily to help prevent prostate-related problems from occurring.
- Males age 40 and older - BPH occurs mostly in men over 50, with 90% of men 85 and older having BPH.
- Male cyclists - Cycling may increase the risk of nerve damage, impotence, impaired urinary flow, and disorders to the male genital organs, especially the prostate gland.
The benefits are cumulative, so take it daily!
Supplements should be taken daily to achieve optimum benefits. Nowhere is this more important than with a prostate health product.
Keep a bottle on your nightstand!
For optimal absorption and best results, PSA Caps should be taken 60 minutes apart from meals, with the dosage recommendation of 1 capsule in the morning and 1 capsule at night.
The PSA Caps formula predictably prevents or reduces prostate enlargement and the associated disorders reported to occur in males age 40 and over, especially in cyclists. By taking PSA Caps regularly, you're taking a major step in protecting the health of your prostate. It's an incredibly inexpensive "insurance policy" for an area of men's health that is undeniably important, so don't put it off!
