The Prostate

The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that wraps around the urethra at the point of the bladder. Its main function is to help to produce semen. As a man ages, the prostate grows, eventually clamping down on the urethra and obstructing the flow of urine from the bladder.
 

What is Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH), commonly known as enlarged prostate, is the silent disease among men. Afflicting 1 in 3 Australian males over 50 (this figure increases to 50% at 60 and 80% at 80), BPH is a painful and sometimes embarrassing, ailment.
The symptoms of BPH are:

  • An increased need to urinate (often at night),

  • A weak or intermittent urinary stream

  • Painful urination

  • Urgency

  • Incontinence

  • A feeling of residual urine in the bladder after voiding

This leads to general pain and discomfort in the groin region and, in serious cases, may result in the complete inability to urinate causing bladder damage and kidney failure.
Some sufferers become reluctant to go out of the home because of the need to go to the toilet frequently or they may become tired through disturbed sleep and a feeling of continual discomfort.
Mainline treatments range from medications (that may have unpleasant side effects) to, in advanced cases, various forms of surgery-that can result in permanent impotence. This doesn't have to be so.

The Magnus Shield Solution

Used successfully for over 40 years in Europe and Asia, Magnus Shield is a combination of extracts from the pollen of eight different plants. Discovered in Sweden almost half a century ago, this nonallergenic mixture has proven remarkably effective in the treatment of BPH.
In 1988, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study concluded that Flower Pollen improved nocturia (excessive urination at night-the principal symptom of BPH) in 68.8 percent of the cases, as opposed to 37.2 percent of the placebo group. In regard to residual urine (urine that remains in the bladder), 54.7 percent of the Flower Pollen group showed improvement, as compared with only 12.5 percent of the placebo.
A second double-blind, placebo-controlled study, published in 1990, mirrored these results. In it, Flower Pollen was found to either eliminate or improve nocturia in 60 percent of the BPH patients tested. This compared with 30 percent of the subjects on the placebo. Even more impressive was the improvement in bladder emptying-57 percent of the Flower Pollen users vs. only 10 percent of the placebo group. All told, 69 percent of the Flower Pollen patients reported an overall improvement in their BPH symptoms.
Recommended dosage is two tablets three times a day in the first week, then one tablet three times a day. For maximum success, Magnus Shield should be taken in the early stages of BPH, as studies have shown it to be most effective in that period.
