Mangosteen For Prostate Disorders

Nearly one-third of all men over 50 years suffer from prostate troubles of one form or another. The percentage rises with age and reaches 75 after the age of 80 years. Prostate and bladder disorders can lead to numerous other ailments such as arthritis and kidney disorders.

The prostate gland is found only in men, comparable in shape and size to a large chestnut. It is reddish brown in appearance. It measures approximately 3.8 cm in width and about 2.5 cm in length and weighs approximately 25 grams. It is situated at the base of the urinary bladder and around the commencement of the urethra (the membranous tube through which urine passes). The prostate is thus vital in relation to the emptying of the bladder. The gland also plays an important role in normal sexual life and its function in relation to sex is to secrete a fluid that is added to semen during sexual intercourse.

Various Disorders

There are various types of prostate disorder . Of these the most important are prostatitis or inflammation in the prostate gland and hypertrophy or enlargement of the prostate gland. Prostatitis may be acute or chronic. It is a painful and distressing disorder, but can be cured with proper treatment without any adverse effects.

Enlargement of the prostate gland or hypertrophy is the most common complaint affecting the gland. This occurs mostly in men of middle or advanced age. The enlargement develops so gradually over a long period that it often assumes serious proportions before it is detected.


There are two warning signals to indicate the possibility of prostate disorders. The first is the interference with the passage of urine and the second is the need to void the urine frequently during the night’s sleep. Other symptoms are a dull aching pain in the lower back and pain in the hips, legs and feet. Prostate enlargement affects the glandular system as a whole. The patient experiences all the symptoms of disturbed health such as lack of energy and physical, mental and nervous disturbances.

In this way, prostate issues really do affect total body health. Your glands (also known as your endocrine system) are what produce and transport chemical messengers (mostly steroids) in and around your body. If that system as a whole is interrupted or otherwise not working to the best of its ability your general health will suffer as a consequence. When I say general, I mean symptoms that aren't specific to any one thing but can be devastating nonetheless: a sense of depression, lack of energy, fatigue, irritability, mood swings. All of these can severely affect your quality of life.

What can I do about prostate disorders

In no other disorder or ailment is supplementation so important. Mangosteen supplements are an absolute must have for any glandular disorder and especially for a prostate disorder . The reason being is that mangosteen is full of xanthones, one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories known to exist while at the same time being a powerful antibiotic. As mentioned above, a common problem with enlarged prostates is that urine does not leave the body properly—it remains trapped and thus infection sets in. The xanthones in mangosteen (I like the Natural Home Cures brand myself) work to combat prostate ailments in three ways. First off, the antibiotic properties of the mangosteen will work to reduce and eventually eliminate infections from trapped urine. Secondly, the anti-inflammatory properties work to shrink the enlarged gland. Imagine, instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a product that simply treats the symptoms of a disorder you can spend a few dollars on something that actually treats the cause of your ailment! Finally, the powerful xanthones in Mangosteen provide total body support so that you can heal quicker while reducing the risk of opportunistic infection.

I mentioned before that I liked the Natural Home Cures brand of mangosteen supplements and here's why: they're cheap and they work. Unlike the mangosteen juice you see everywhere these days, Natural Homes Cures Mangosteen comes in a solid state form. This is because the xanthones in mangosteen are found in the outer layer of the fruit (the rind). Have you ever eaten the rind of an orange? Doesn't taste so good does it? The same goes for mangosteen. That's why those juice products are loaded with other fruit juices and contain very little mangosteen. When you're buying a product for the purposes of supplementation you want to get the most benefit you can out of it and in the case of mangosteen that means consuming the rind of the fruit. Natural Home Cures pill form mangosteen give you pure 100% mangosteen rind (also known as pericarp) in an easy to ingest pill format for half the price of those juice products. For prostate health, you can't beat Natural Home Cures Mangosteen!
