In a recent study from China vitamin D deficiency appears to be associated with BPH symptoms. I have been taking vitamin D3 capsules twice a day for the past year and my symptoms have improved.
"After analyzing the findings, researchers found that 231 of the study participants had deficient levels of vitamin D. The deficiency was correlated with a significantly higher prostate volume, and a significantly lower maximum urinary flow. Other distinguishing results observed in the deficient group included higher levels of aldosterone and higher levels of prostate-specific antigen values.
The researchers concluded that the findings show a strong association between vitamin D levels that are considered deficient and the presence of BPH. This means that vitamin D levels could be a potential future clinical biomarker for the detection and prevention of BPH."
