Beta-sitosterol Supplement for Prostate Support and BPH Relief

Beta-sitosterol belongs to the family of phytosterols — compounds found widely in plants, fruits and vegetables. Beta-sitosterol supplements help reduce symptoms related to benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).

What is Beta-sitosterol?

The main sources of Beta-sitosterol are plants native to South Africa, such as Pygeum africanum, Serenoa repens (saw palmetto), pumpkin seeds, pecan nuts, rice bran, sea buckthorn seed, goji berries and wheat germ.

However, the amount of Beta-sitosterol present in those foods is not enough to have a significant impact on your prostate health. In order to maximize the health benefits of Beta-sitosterol, you need to take the best prostate supplements with Beta-sitosterol.

Benefits of Taking Prostate Supplements with Beta-sitosterol

Taking a supplement with Beta-sitosterol may produce several benefits. Here's what research shows about Beta-sitosterol benefits for the prostate:

  • Studies show inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase, which prevents testosterone from being converted into DHT.
  • Research provides an anti-estrogen effect due to its anti-aromatase action.
  • Studies show a powerful anti-inflammatory effect that eradicates symptoms of prostatitis.
  • Reduction of blood cholesterol (studies have shown a correlation between increased prostate volume and cholesterol levels) and improvement in lipoprotein profiles. At higher doses, beta-sitosterol helps curb the absorption of dietary cholesterol and reduce cholesterolemia.
  • Research indicates an inhibition of the development and growth of cancer cells (prostate, colon, leukemia) via modification of lipid membrane composition through the emission of a division-preventing signal.
  • Studies indicate specific immunity activity, particularly related to multiple sclerosis, lupus and hepatitis C.
  • Research shows stabilization of glycemia by acting on glucose-6-phosphatase.

Do any of these benefits of Beta-sitosterol supplements appeal to you? If so, you should consider Beta-sitosterol prostate supplements.

How does Beta-sitosterol relieve benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms?

What is the relationship between Beta-sitosterol and an enlarged prostate? Beta-sitosterol reduces the volume and inflammation of the prostate gland. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as prostatic adenoma, is a disease in which the prostate increases in volume. It typically develops around the age of sixty. The most common symptoms are a frequent urge to urinate, problems with micturition, decreased urine flow, a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder and sometimes pain.

BPH originates in the pituitary gland, which increases the secretion of prolactin. This, in turn, stimulates the production of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone into its active form - dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT production is considered a major cause of BPH, along with the increased levels of estrogens that result from the conversion of testosterone by aromatase.

Finasteride is the most commonly prescribed medication for treating BPH. Though active in 50% of cases, it loses its efficacy once treatment is stopped and also has some side-effects — abdominal pain, skin rashes, enlarged breasts, migraines, fatigue and reduced libido).

Alongside eating a Mediterranean diet rich in plant sterols, taking 180 mg of Beta-sitosterol daily has proven to be as effective as finasteride, and it does not generate the latter's unwelcome side-effects.

A large number of Beta-sitosterol prostate studies have demonstrated its ability to fight the key symptoms of BPH, including:

  • A progressive decrease in prostate volume.
  • Fewer inflammatory symptoms (prostatitis), which cause significant everyday discomfort.
  • Improvement in urine flow.
  • A relaxant effect on bladder muscles, which improves urine flow (stronger urine stream and less residual urine in the bladder.

Instructions for Taking Beta-sitosterol for Prostate Health

Looking for where to buy Beta-sitosterol supplements? Look no further. What makes our Beta-Sitosterol one of the best Beta-sitosterol supplements available is that it only contains VegaPure®, standardized to 98% plant phytosterols and 45% beta-sitosterol, in vegetarian capsules.

As for the Beta-sitosterol dosage for prostate health, we recommended taking three capsules, each of which contains 60 mg of Beta-sitosterol, every day, throughout the day.

Beta-sitosterol and prostate health go hand-in-hand. But before you start taking any supplements, you should take the time to lear about the side effects of Beta-sitosterol supplements.

There haven't been enough studies to determine if it is safe to take Beta-sitosterol dietary supplements while pregnant or breast-feeding, so it's recommended that you don’t.

Additionally, people suffering from sitosterolemia, an inherited fat storage disease, should not take these supplements. People with this condition already have too much Beta-sitosterol and fats in their muscle tissue and blood, making them susceptible to the early onset of heart disease.

You can also combine Beta-sitosterol with other supplements, such as ProstaNatural Formula and Prostaphil™, to enhance its effects on your prostate.
