November is Men’s Health Month and that means we are going to start seeing many men donning their best beards or mustaches to show their support.
Over the years, the role and health concerns for men have drastically changed. For example, men suffer more today from fertility issues and erectile dysfunction. While heart disease is not specific to men, it is another area of concern.
Nancy’s Nifty Nook carries many natural products to help support men’s health.
Male menopause – is there such a thing?
A man’s midlife crisis is often joked about but ‘andropause’ is not something to be taken lightly.
During this time, men undergo important physical and hormonal changes. They may experience a weakened sex drive, increased anxiety, depression and moodiness as well as feelings of failure. By the age of forty, these symptoms occur because of decreasing levels of testosterone.
The prostate gland
In the male body, the prostate gland is one of the few organs that can go wrong. In Canada, prostate cancer is the number one cancer among men and the fourth most common cancer overall.
Nancy says, “When a man reaches 50 years old, it is important to have yearly PSA (prostate-specific antigen) tests to be proactive and check for prostate cancer. Estrogen is both a male and female hormone, so if it needs to be addressed, it can be tailored individually.”
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or enlargement of the prostate affects most men by age 70. Symptoms include the frequent need to urinate, especially at night, and increased urgency but decreased force. This can lead to urinary tract infections and kidney infection or damage.
To help prevent BPH, Nancy recommends avoiding pesticides, stress and high cholesterol. She also advises to limit beer consumption. “Though beer seems to be the worst, try not to drink too much of any alcohol,” says Nancy. “Get lots of exercise. Walking just two to three hours a week can significantly decrease the risk of BPH.”
One important treatment believed to be helpful for BPH is saw palmetto berry. Studies have shown that it may be safer, faster acting and more effective than drugs. Users reported minimal side effects from using saw palmetto berry whereas traditional drugs may cause erectile dysfunction. Studies show that natural products such as saw palmetto berry can be just as effective as Finasteride and Flomax, but with less side effects. Always check with your medical doctor for treatment advise.
Today, there are many products to help with male health issues. Nancy always suggests trying natural products, when possible, but says it is important to check with a health practitioner when taking other medications as natural products can interact negatively with some drugs.
Introducing Prostate Perform by New Roots
Prostate Perform is a Canadian product that addresses prostate health. While it may come with a higher price tag, it delivers results!
Owner Nancy Young explains, “As of July 2022, Canada has over 6 million men aged 55 and older, and approximately 3.2 million of them are dealing with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). This condition affects nearly 3 in 10 men during their lifetime and becomes more common as men age. By the age of 80, there's an 80 per cent chance of having BPH, which means around 4 million men in Canada.”
Nancy says that certain prescription medications for BPH may have side effects, including erectile dysfunction and impotence. Prostate Perform aims to enhance the quality of life, promote better sleep, and offer control over one's health.
