10 hidden underlying causes of an enlarged prostate (and how to fix it)

Prostate enlargement causes a lot of problems: frequent urination… constant nighttime bathroom trips… weak urine flow… leaks and dribbles…  low sex drive… soft erections… & more.

The purpose of this article is to show you how to naturally restore a normal functioning prostate.

But to fix it, you need to know what’s causing your prostate to grow bigger.

And there are 10 HIDDEN UNDERLYING CAUSES for BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia).

And it’s any one of these causes (or usually a combination of several) that’s causing your urinary problems to get worse and worse

Before revealing what these ten underlying causes of prostate problems are let’s quickly summarize what is an enlarged prostate or BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia)

An enlarged prostate is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate that usually affects men beginning at the age of 40.

Almost every man will go through it at some point in their lifespan.

An enlarged prostate is what its name sounds like.

The tissue in the prostate grows bigger, and with increasing size, it puts (more) pressure on the urethra (your urinary tube), disrupting urine flow – so you experience an increase in frequent urinations (especially at night-time), incontinence, leaks, dribbles, and symptoms of erectile dysfunction.

The bigger the prostate grows, the more severe the urinary issues become.

10 Big Reasons why guys suffer an enlarged prostate!

If you suffer any one of these underlying health problems… then most likely, your prostate function will be affected.

And the more of these problems you have (most guys over 45 years of age suffer multiple… EVEN all TEN)… the more severe your urination and sex problems will be!

 

Prostate Issue Cause # 1:  THE GROWTH HORMONE… DHT

As you get older, your testosterone dives sharply because a lot of it turns to the feminine hormone, estrogen.

When estrogen levels get too high, starting at age 50, your body signals special enzymes to produce DHT.

 

DHT is a growth hormone, meaning it causes certain tissues in your body to grow, including your prostate!

When DHT levels remain high, your prostate expands, crushing your bladder and preventing it from emptying.

The result is painful and persistent urinary problems that can stick around indefinitely.

 

Prostate Issue Cause #2: PAINFUL INFLAMMATION

According to studies published in PubMed and Science Direct, inflammation is another key driver of prostate growth in us senior men. 

And that’s because inflammation (created by a buildup of inflammatory compounds (like COX and LOX) causes your prostate to swell incredibly large, sometimes doubling in size!

This once again places your bladder and urethra under tremendous pressure and prevents you from fully relieving yourself.

.

Prostate Issue Cause #3: PROSTATE CELL GROWTH

When you are young, your prostate cells are healthy.

But as you age, more and more of your healthy prostate cells can experience unusual changes.

(In some cases, cancerous, though an enlarged prostate is usually a non-cancerous growth).

This process can cause your prostate to swell in size.

 

Prostate Issue Cause #4: URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS

Urinary tract infections are caused by microbes such as bacteria that attack the body’s urinary tract.

When your urinary tract is disrupted, this affects your ability to pee.

 

Prostate Issue Cause # 5: NERVE PROBLEMS

You don’t think much about your nerves when it comes to prostate problems.

But your nerves control the involuntary muscles surrounding your urinary, bladder and prostate.

Your nerves help control muscles around bladder, prostate and urethra.

And with age, nerves get damaged and lose function, disrupting your ability to control your prostate muscles and bladder.

 

Prostate Issue Cause # 6:  POOR BLOOD FLOW

With age, production of nitric oxide in your body declines.

Nitric oxide regulates blood flow and circulation throughout your body, including your prostate.

Without rich, nutrient dense, oxygenated blood flow nourishing your prostate… your prostate can malfunction leading to prostate discomfort and trouble peeing and having sex.

 

Prostate Issue Cause #7:  DIABTETES, BLOOD SUGAR & GLUCOSE PROBLEMS

Diabetes can lead to many serious health problems.

Often overlooked, are issues with your prostate.

According to Harvard University Study…  men with diabetes are 4 times more likely to suffer prostate issues too.

 

 Prostate Issue Cause #8: MUSCLE LOSS

It’s no secret, as we get older, we lose muscle tissue.

But we never think about the muscle strength decline in the muscles surrounding the prostate.

As the tiny, involuntary muscles around prostate weakens, it becomes increasingly difficult to “hold in” your pee.

 

Prostate Issue Cause #9: LOW TESTOSTERONE

Low-T doesn’t just affect our sex drive, it also regulates our prostate health too.

Though scientists haven’t been able to pinpoint exactly how low-T causes prostate misery… clinical studies clearly indicate a link between the two.

 

Prostate Issue Cause #10:  HIGH CHOLESTEROL

What our doctors don’t to tell us is that cholesterol can swell our prostate.

Multiple studies found that lab animals that were fed a high cholesterol diet developed enlarged, inflamed prostates.

More recently, the idea of a cholesterol connection gained steam after 791 men in health study significantly reduced their prostate symptoms after improving their cholesterol.
