Prostate Health Protocol:
As men age, the prostate can become enlarged and cause many problematic symptoms such as: weak or slow urine flow, inability to completely empty the bladder, urge to urinate frequently, needing to wake frequently during the night to urinate, and straining to urinate.
Our prostate health protocol provides nutrients to support the prostate and reduce the inflammation associated with an enlarged prostate.
