Benign prostatic hyperplasia is also called BPH. The prostate is a male sex gland. Prostate gland is a firm, partly muscular, partly glandular body that is situated about the base of the mammalian male urethra and secretes an alkaline viscid fluid which is a major constituent of the ejaculatory fluid. BPH or Prostate enlargement is the benign growth of the prostate gland. BPH is a condition in which an overgrowth of prostate tissue pushes against the prostatic urethra and the bladder, blocking the release of urine.

Corn silk soothes and relaxes the lining of the urinary tubules and bladder, relieving irritation, improving urine flow and its elimination from bladder. It is also helpful in giving relief from frequent urination and difficulty in passing urine, symptomatic of BPH conditions.
Saw Palmetto not only blocks the formation of DHT more effectively, as DHT causes cells to over multiply.
For relief of BPH conditions, the herbal compounds formulated containing tonic herbs (also useful for male reproductive system, as a diuretic and also as an antiseptic for the urinary tract) like Tribulus terrestris is useful. Tribulus is also available as a supplement. Also consider using Turmeric as part of a daily diet.
