(NaturalNews) The prostate gland is a key player in the male reproductive system in that it secretes a good percentage of the makeup of male sperm. The gland is about the size of a walnut and sits just below the bladder in men. A common health problem today is prostate inflammation and cancer. This influx of prostate problems is due to poor testosterone metabolism and aromatization.

It is believed that most men experience some level of prostate enlargement by the age of 45, but many do not have symptoms. By the age of 60, it is believed that 80% of all men experience some sort of urinary problems due to prostate enlargement. The classic pre-cancerous condition is called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), which presses into the urethra and causes urinary discomfort, urinary urges and incomplete emptying.

BPH can and often does progress into prostate cancer if the cause of the condition is not addressed. Men need to be aware of the common symptoms of the condition and make the lifestyle changes necessary to address the causative factors.

Common symptoms associated with prostate enlargement:

  • Frequent urination
  • Urinary urgency
  • Difficulty starting
  • Reduced force of the urine stream
  • Terminal dribbling
  • Incomplete emptying of the bladder
  • Inability to urinate

Prostate & male hormonal health:

The prostate gland was designed to filter toxins and impurities out of the semen to produce its finest sperm product for conception and reproduction of a strong healthy species. The most common impurity in our systems today are xenoestrogens, or man-made estrogen-mimicking molecules.

These chemicals disrupt the normal male estrogen-testosterone balance and lead to unwanted prostatic growth. As with any degenerative disease, oxidative stress from excess free radicals and inflammatory agents are also critical factors in prostatitis and prostatic carcinomas.

Aromatization and prostate health:

Aging and high levels of physical, chemical and emotional stress are associated with the loss of progesterone in women and testosterone in men. The process of converting androgenic hormones into estrogens is called aromatization. Aromatization leads to a state of estrogen dominance that is a major factor in many common health problems. (1)

Estrogen is a catabolic hormone that breaks down muscle mass and leads to an increase in body fat and aromatase. Testosterone and to a slight degree progesterone are anabolic hormones that promote lean body mass. Aromatase is an enzyme that is found in estrogen-producing cells located in the adrenal glands, ovaries, placenta, testicles, brain and fat tissue. Higher levels of aromatase in the body convert more testosterone and progesterone into estrogen.

Elevated aromatase activity and estrogen dominance is the biggest factor involved in prostate and colon cancer in men. When estrogen is present in excess in a male, it has been shown to cause feminization of the body and metabolic disorders including the enlargement of the prostate. (2, 3)

Prostatic hormonal balance:

Research has indicated that poor testosterone metabolism is a primary factor in the development of prostatic growth. The major breakdown product of testosterone is dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The key enzyme that is involved with converting testosterone to DHT is 5-alpha reductase. Elevated DHT to testosterone ratios can be problematic.

The biggest factor involved with prostatic health is the androgen to estrogen ratio. In particular, this means the ratio between testosterone/DHT and estrogen molecules. Keeping testosterone metabolism under control and aromatization to a minimum are keys to maintaining healthy male hormones and prostatic health. (4, 5)
