I am a 49 year old. I have had BPH for a couple of years. It comes and goes, and until now I have not been able to figure out what causes it to get bad then good and bad again. Was it wine, or diet, or green tea, or sleep, etc. etc.
Now, after exhaustive deduction and elimination I think I have found it ... melatonin. Melatonin is a natural sleep aid that I took on and off, but for the past 2 months I have religiously taken 1 extra strength melatonin every night. And my daytime BPH prostate symptoms have almost disappeared. No slow urination, a good flow, not perfect but certainly not embarrassing like it was before.
I have no idea whether it's the actual melatonin (because I can find so little online about the link between BPH and melatonin) however there are plenty of places where the link between melatonin and prostate are discussed. So I may be onto something. Or it could be that a better night's sleep also helps during the day.
Anyway, melatonin is the only think that's worked for me so far, and there are no side effects.
Disclaimer: I am in no way connected to melatoni, I am just a sufferer! However you should always take medical advice and look into it yourself.
