Men, This Is For You!

Most men will at some time in their life experience Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) that are related to BPH. One of the challenges many men experience as they age is BPH, which stands for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. BPH is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. By the time most men reach their 30’s the prostate begins to grow and becomes progressively larger with age; by the age of 50 symptoms often become evident. Approximately 50% of men over the age of 50 are affected by BPH and by the age of 80 nearly 80% are affected. The real reason for the continued growth of the prostate is not fully understood. Throughout a man's lifetime, the prostate gland normally increases in weight about 21 times, compared to its weight at birth. It appears this growth may be hormonally related. Anecdotal evidence suggests diet and environmental factors may be major players.


In general, men on a whole food plant-based diet seem to experience more normal controlled growth in the prostate with age while men who consume animal sourced foods (meat and dairy) experience excessive prostate growth and tend to develop more severe symptoms. This may be related to the hormonal impact these foods have on the body.

With the prostate gland being just under the bladder and surrounding the urethra (urine passageway), symptoms of BPH involve urinary difficulties. Common symptoms include:
  • A weak or slow urinary stream
  • A feeling of incomplete bladder emptying
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Urgency to urinate
  • Getting up frequently at night to urinate
  • A urinary stream that starts and stops
  • Straining to urinate
  • Continued dribbling of urine
  • Returning to urinate again minutes after finishing

While adopting a whole food, plant-based diet is fundamental to prostate health, discrete supplementation may play an important role in controlling symptoms of BPH. We have found a unique supplement that can quickly impact prostate health in a positive manner – Brizo™ In a 4-week trial with six men varying in age from late 30s to mid 70s using a pre and post supplementation survey of symptoms related to BPH, 100% of the participants reported some degree of improvement in urinary symptoms that are usually associated with BPH.

“Brizo is an unparalleled soy extract that revolutionizes men’s quality of life. Brizo is produced through a unique process of fermentation which increases the bioavailability of the beneficial active ingredient found in the soybean (Non-GMO soy). By providing a fast acting solution to frustrating urinary symptoms, Brizo provides relief throughout the day and especially at night.”

Brizo is available in a 28-day blister pack box providing a one capsule serving twice daily. When used as directed, benefit is usually realized the first month. For more on how to support prostate and urinary health see how Brizo can help you.
