Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) affects about 50% of men aged 51 to 60 and up to 90% of men over 80. This likely comes as no surprise since, after the age of 50, doctors encourage regular prostate exams for men.
While saw palmetto is frequently used for the treatment of an enlarged prostate, Vi-Spo is the new “it” supplement ingredient when it comes to men’s health. Vi-Spo is essentially the superior version of regular saw palmetto. Basically, it’s saw palmetto extract with over 85% fatty acid and 2-3% beta-sitosterol concentration.
Yet, what does this mean? What are the benefits of Vi-Spo in regards to men’s health? In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at what the research says when it comes to the effectiveness and efficiency of Vi-Spo.
The Benefits: What Does the Research Say?
Vi-Spo contains up to 10 times the beta-sitosterol content than typical saw palmetto extracts. Beta-sitosterol is a sterol found in plants, like saw palmetto, that has shown great promise in treating enlarged prostates and reducing cholesterol levels.
Cultivated in the southeastern United States from saw palmetto berries, beta-sitosterol is also free of major food allergens and has proven to have various benefits in various double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trials, as outlined in the sections below.
1. Improves Prostate Health
Recent research demonstrated the effectiveness of Vi-Spo in treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). In fact, this research showed that Vi-Spo had increased effectiveness when compared to conventional saw palmetto oil preparations.
Vi-Spo also had superior effectiveness when it came to regulating and reducing inflammatory and cell death markers. All in all, the research shows Vi-Spo is leading the way when it comes to improving prostate health, which is why Life Nutrition includes it as an ingredient in our Prostate Power.
2. Supports Healthy Residual Urine Volume & Urinary Flow Rate
In other research studies, Vi-Spo increased maximum and average urinary flow rate when compared to the placebo. Increased urinary flow rate indicates decreased or no obstructions in the urinary pathways. With an enlarged prostate, the bladder may struggle to empty properly as it blocks the urethra, the tube which carries urine out of the body. All in all, a good urinary flow rate is a key indicator of good prostate health.
3. Better Sexual Health
The prostate is a small gland in the male body that produces the fluid that when combined with sperm, creates semen. Many men actually develop erectile dysfunction or ejaculation problems with an enlarged prostate. Thus, with the use of Vi-Spo to improve prostate health, sexual health function also improves.
4. Improves Overall Quality of Life
Vi-Spo offers an easy, natural, and functional ingredient that doesn’t just improve prostate, bladder, urinary, and sexual health. It also contributes to an overall improved quality of life.
More specifically, it reduces any issues related to urination, particularly in public settings, and helps improve sleep quality by reducing frequent disruptions (such as having to use the bathroom multiple times a night).
Additionally, optimal health of the prostate reduces your risk of developing bladder or kidney problems down the line. It further prevents the need for a catheter, which is necessary if the bladder is unable to drain properly.
Vi-Spo: Creating Improved Outcomes & Health
Vi-Spo is the new and innovative ingredient leading the way when it comes to improving men’s health. When selecting supplements to compliment your regular health-conscious routine, choose varieties that include Vi-Spo on their ingredient list, such as Life Nutrition's Prostate Power.
With improved urinary comfort and overall health, you can experience new-found confidence and healthy aging, without prostate-related discomforts standing in your way.
