Prostate disease is affecting more than half of the male population, and it's the most common male problem, especially in old age. The most common three problems with the prostate are inflammation, enlargement and prostate cancer.
After years of research scientists have found that prostate enlargement happens due to accumulation of 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone, which is produced from testosterone by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase.
Also, it was confirmed that one of the best ways to fight increase of prostate is bee products, especially bee pollen, which contains a component that blocks the operation of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, and inhibits the development and growth of prostate cells.
Except for prostate enlargement, bee pollen helps in combating against inflammation of the prostate.
In addition to treatment, bee pollen is also used as prevention of prostate problems, and it's recommended to take bee pollen every day to all men older than 40 years.
Thanks to antioxidant properties bee pollen also helps with intestinal diseases, mental illness, amnesia, liver disease, ulcers and many others problems.
