The sexual side effects and symptomatic benefits of an enriched herbal nutriceutical bar compared with traditional medical therapy in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia: CONCLUSIONS The ingestion of the nutriceutical bar significantly improved the symptoms and signs of mild to moderate prostate disease with response rates comparable to those reported with other medical therapies. Not only was the incidence of side effects minimal, but there was no reported incidence of sexual or cardiovascular side effects as are found with the medical therapies. The combination of all of the ingredients in a single delivery system did not diminish the effects of the individual components. The nutriceutical prostate bar is a safe and well tolerated alternative to drugs that are commonly prescribed for prostate disease. PSA levels were not affected following the ingestion of the bar.
This pilot study, in a small number of patients, suggests a positive trend in the response of patients with mild to moderate symptoms of BPH to anactive complex neutraceutical product. It is acknowledged that the total numbers are too small to draw any statistical conclusions, but these results using a unique combination neutriceutical bar certainly corroborate other studies on individual ingredients and suggest that a larger, multicentred, randomized trial is appropriate. buy prednisone
