Early intervention and supplements to support men’s health
November is Men’s Health Month and Nancy’s Nifty Nook is ready to answer your questions on how to support overall health.
November is Canadian Men’s Health Month. In support of this initiative, Nancy’s Nifty Nook wants to promote the importance of early intervention and a healthy lifestyle.
While a man’s reproductive system is not as complex as a woman’s, his problems are just as real. Nancy Young, owner of Nancy’s Nifty Nook, said, “The traditional role of a man has changed over the years, as have their concerns. Today more than ever, many men suffer from fertility problems and erectile dysfunction.
At Nancy’s Nifty Nook there are many supplements specifically for men’s health. Nancy is ready to answer your questions and show you all of the products she recommends to support overall health.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement)
Many men suffer from prostate conditions. The prostate is located just below the bladder in men and surrounds the top of the tube that drains urine from the bladder (urethra). The main function of the prostate is to produce the fluid that nourishes and transports sperm (seminal fluid).
Male clients come to Nancy to complain about frequent urination, too many nightly toilet visits, and increased urgency but reduced strength. In this case, she still recommends the saw palmetto, a type of palm that grows in the warm climate of the southeast coast of the United States.
In 95% of urinary problems, saw palmetto helped without the side effects of chemical drugs. In addition, saw palmetto kale has been shown to be more effective than drugs such as Flomax – it also works faster and is much safer. Nancy recommends vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc, which can be taken in tablet form or by eating a good handful of nuggets each day – the nuggets are inside the pumpkin seed. Pumpkin seed oil can also help, as can essential fatty acids, which also help with cholesterol issues.
Nancy mentions: “My own father suffered from an enlarged prostate. After taking saw palmetto and pumpkin seeds for three months, his scheduled surgery was canceled because he was back to normal and never had any problems again!
Nettle root also cuts nighttime toilet visits by almost half and improves urinary frequency and flow in over 90% of men. In many cases, nettle root helps shrink the prostate.
Other products that may help are licorice, which should not be taken by people with high blood pressure, aged garlic extract, and lycopene which can be found in cooked tomato products. , grapefruit and guava.
Hair loss in men is quite common, with 80% of North American men affected. Chemotherapy, anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin, antibiotics, anticoagulants, antidepressants; drugs for the heart, cholesterol, ulcers and arthritis can all cause hair loss.
In addition to stress or hypothyroidism, both of which can cause hair loss, a deficiency of several nutrients including zinc, vitamin A, and iron can also cause hair loss. Gluten intolerance, without showing other symptoms, can also lead to hair loss.
Nancy recommends taking 1000 to 1500 mg of vitamin C and 400 IU of vitamin E with saw palmetto cabbage. A diet high in fat and protein can also cause hair loss as it affects the kidneys.
Male impotence can be caused by many factors including smoking, alcohol, prescription drugs, especially hypotensive drugs which can cause testicular shrinkage and decreased testosterone production. Antidepressants also cause a lack of sexual desire or response. Again, vitamin E and zinc are important in treating this disease. Eating a vegetarian diet, implementing stress reduction methods, and adding exercise to the daily routine can also help. Gingko biloba has been shown to increase circulation to the extremities, including blood flow to the penis.
Nancy also points out that Korean, Siberian or Asian ginseng also improved erectile dysfunction.
Compared to what they were in the 1940s, the number and quality of sperm is in free fall. It’s the result of obesity, hot tubs, saunas, vigorous exercise, tight clothing, and chemicals in pesticides. Nancy says vitamin C and zinc are important. Zine helps promote testosterone production, sperm formation, and sperm mobility. Vitamin E (tocopherols) is known as the sex vitamin or the anti-infertility vitamin. Ashwagandha root has also been shown to improve sperm count, mobility, and testosterone levels. From a dietary point of view, it is recommended to eat nuts, seeds, fiber and take a good essential fatty acid.
At Nancy’s Nifty Nook, many male customers come to treat gout, one of the biggest problems men face. Gout is a type of arthritis caused by an excessive buildup of uric acid, which causes sharp crystals to form and inflammation and damage in the joints and other tissues.
As a preventative measure, Nancy recommends drinking half a cup of unsweetened tart cherry juice a day. Eating fresh cherries, strawberries, pomegranate, and other berries can also help. Vitamin C, Folic Acid with B12, Devil’s Claw, Nettle, Celery Seeds and Juice, Quercetin, Bromelain, Dandelion, and Burdock have also been shown to help treat gout. . It’s important to remember that everyone’s body is unique, so what helps one person doesn’t necessarily help another.
Bell Lifestyle has a great product called Gout Relief and it is 100% guaranteed. Paired with cherry juice, this product has helped many Nancy customers.
