    Prostex Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the Prostate?
    The prostate is a complex gland, the approximate size of a walnut, and surrounds the urethra, which is the tube or canal that carries urine, from the bladder, and through and out of the penis.

    The primary function of a prostate is the production and delivery of sperm. Sperm is carried in a fluid medium called semen.  When a male experiences ejaculation, it is the squeezing action by the prostate for the purpose of expelling the semen through the urethra.

    Does the prostate gland grow as a man ages?
    The answer to this question is yes. The most common health problem associated with the prostate gland is enlargement of the gland.  This phenomenon is an inevitable part of the aging process in a man's adult life time.  Most men begin to experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate in their middle forties and they progress with advanced years.

    What is an enlarged prostate?
    An enlarged prostate is a common condition in which the prostate grows and places pressure on the urethra resulting in urinary symptoms in men.  This condition is known as BPH or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.  The word "benign" signifies non cancerous. 

    Is BPH a common condition in men?
    BPH is a very common condition in middle aged men.  Mild symptoms can begin as early as age 40 in some men.  Approximately fifty percent of all men over age 50 have prostate problems and the number escalates to where as high as ninety-five percent of all men over the age of 80 have prostate problems.

    Should I see a doctor if I have prostate symptoms?
    Yes, you should see your doctor to determine the exact origin of the symptoms. Most likely the symptoms are a result of BPH; however, you certainly want to rule out the possibility of prostate cancer.

    Doctors use the digital rectal exam (DRE), which is typically done during a regular physical exam for middle aged men.  The goal of a digital rectal exam is to detect cancer in its early stages, when treatment is most successful.  Because the prostate gland is an internal organ, your doctor cannot look at it directly, but since it is situated in front of the rectum, he can feel it by inserting a gloved, lubricated finger into your rectum.

    The physician will probably also conduct a PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) blood test, which is also a screening test for prostate cancer.

    What is Acute Urinary Retention?
    Acute Urinary Retention is a serious complication of BPH in which one cannot urinate at all resulting in a distended bladder associated with pain.  If you cannot urinate and have pain, consult your doctor immediately or get medical attention at a hospital emergency department.  If left unattended, the urine in the bladder could back up into the kdneys resulting in serious medical problems.  The immediate treatment is to remove the urine from the bladder by inserting a catheter through the penis into the bladder.

    How is BPH treated?
    The good news is that there are products available on the market that have been successful in treating BPH.  There is a large amount of evidence about these various products being used to minimize BPH symptoms.  Several herbal and nutritional products are used to promote the healthy function of the prostate and relieve the urinary symptoms of BPH. One such product is Prostex, a formula of the amino acids Glycine, Alanine, and Glutamic Acid, which has been used for over fifty years for relief of BPH symptoms.

    What are amino acids?
    Amino acids are the chemical building blocks of life, and occur naturally in our bodies and in the foods we eat. Our bodies break down dietary proteins into amino acids, and then reassemble these amino acids into new structures that are essential to the formation of muscles, bones, glands, and organs. Amino acids are necessary for the manufacture of genes, hormones, and neurotransmitters, and are also required in order for vitamins and minerals to be utilized properly. Essential amino acids are not manufactured by the body, and must be obtained from the foods we eat. Nonessential amino acids are just as important to our bodies as essential amino acids, but are manufactured by our bodies from proteins found in our diet.

    Which Amino Acids are contained in Prostex?
    Prostex Prostate Health Formula is a special proprietary blend of the nonessential amino acids Glycine, Alanine, and Glutamic Acid. Glycine is one of the most important amino acids, and is utilized by the liver in the synthesis of other nonessential amino acids. In addition to its importance for healthy prostate function, glycine plays important roles in the immune system, nervous system, and in the functions of the liver and circulatory system. Alanine is one of the simplest of the amino acids, and plays an important role in the breakdown of glucose in the body. It also plays an important role in preventing the buildup of toxic products in muscle cells. Glutamic Acid is used by the body in the synthesis of several other amino acids, and is important for healthy nervous system and brain function. It also plays an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.

    Is Prostex a standardized formula?
    Yes. Prostex is a standardized formula, and is manufactured according to Current Good Manufacturing Practices as established through FDA regulations for pharmaceutical and health products.

    Have there been studies done showing the effect of amino acid supplementation for BPH?
    There have been several independent studies conducted, both in the United States and in other countries.  In 1958, a group of doctors performed a controlled clinical study using the amino acid formula in Prostex. In 1962, another group of doctors performed a more comprehensive study confirming the results of the 1958 study. The same amino acid formula has benefited tens of thousands of men in the decades since.

    What results were experienced by the patients in the studies?
    In both studies, a large percentage of the patients taking amino acid therapy experienced significant relief from prostate-related urinary symptoms including increased frequency, urgency, nighttime frequency, and decreased flow.

    How do I take Prostex?
    Suggested dosage is two capsules three times daily. In the clinical studies, relief was experienced as long as therapy was continued, but symptoms recurred once the patients stopped taking the product.

    When can I expect to see results?
    As with most dietary supplements, regular use is suggested for best results. And, though individual results may vary, studies indicate that optimal benefits are achieved after taking Prostex for 90 days with continuous uninterrupted use.

    Prostate Health Issues and Problems
    The health of the prostate is dependent on the complex interaction of male hormones such as testosterone and the various cell types that make up the gland. Various health issues of varying seriousness are associated with the prostate throughout male adulthood. Primary prostate problems include prostatitis, enlarged prostate (BPH), and prostate cancer.

    Prostatitis is the primary cause of urinary difficulties among younger and middle aged men. This condition is usually treated with antibiotics, although the most common form, non-bacterial prostatitis, is not completely understood and may not respond to this treatment. Doctors will often adopt a watch and wait policy, and the condition will often clear up without treatment in time. For more information about prostatitis, consult our men's health links.

    Enlarged Prostate, or Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common of prostate symptoms, and is largely an inevitable part of the aging process. Most men over 50 years of age have this condition to some degree. The enlarged prostate constricts the urethra and affects urinary flow. For more information, consult our BPH area.

    Prostate Cancer is one of the most frequent forms of cancer in American men. Left untreated, cancer in the prostate can spread to other parts of the body and eventually cause death. However, with early detection most prostate cancer is treatable, and advanced methods allow most men to resume a normal life after prostate cancer treatment. Prostate cancer can be detected in its early stages by digital rectal exam (DRE) and a blood test for the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). The American Urologic Association recommends that all men over the age of 50 have an annual DRE and PSA test.

    Suggested Use
    As a dietary supplement, take two capsules three times daily after meals.

    Warnings

    Keep out of reach of children. If urinary problems persist, or if you are being treated for prostate problems, consult your doctor. Do not use if imprinted seal is broken or missing. Store in a cool, dry environment.

      My husband started taking this product a few years ago due to prostate problems and now does not have any problems at all. I would highly recommend Prostex.

      I recommend this product!
      This product is by far the best I've found for my urinary issues. Unfortunately, after approximately four months use, it began to lose its fantastic results, which I assume occurs because my body gets use to it. Therefore, I have temporarily switched to another product and will return to Prostex after about two months.
