Herbs against prostate

What is the prostate: the prostate is part of the male reproductive system and is a walnut-shaped gland located around the urethra and under the bladder. Over time, it tends to grow, while the tendency to swell to a great extent results in the disease, called prostatic hyperplasia. The effect is to prevent normal urination, creating symptoms that need to be addressed, both for everyday life and for overall health.
