Those were the good ol’ days.
Now, as I age, it’s because of my prostate.
Yeah, I said it. I’m Mason Cromwell and I have an enlarged prostate. It’s age-related and slight (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
I wake up in the middle of the night needing to urinate. But I stand in front of the toilet just waiting for something to happen. Like a sneeze that won’t come. Like an itch that you can’t scratch.
From time to time, I research and try prostate supplements. The idea is to reduce inflammation of the prostate so that it is easier to urinate and you can completely empty your bladder. Which means less waking up in the middle of the night and reduced risk of infection associated with stagnant urine that your bladder can’t clear.
Generally speaking, all prostate formulas should have two ingredients: Beta-Sitosterol and Saw Palmetto Extract. If you don’t see those ingredients in a prostate support supplement, you should probably skip it.
It’s important to note that Betasitosterol doesn’t actually reduce prostate size but, according to WebMD, it is effective in supporting prostate health for those with BPH.
Saw Palmetto is controversial in the sense that several double-blind peer reviewed studies contradict each other as to whether or not Saw Palmetto does anything to reduce symptoms. But studies like one published by the World Journal of Urology shows that Saw Palmetto is probably best for long-term prostate support, in that it seems to reduce the progression of symptoms and the need for surgery down the line.
Howerver, my interest in a supplement goes beyond the hypotheticals of long-term prostate health. I want a supplement that actually relieves my symptoms now. This requires something with actual anti-inflammatory properties.
Stinging nettle root and Swedish flower pollen are two powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients that, when combined have been shown to reduce the swelling that occurs in the prostate. A study from the NYU Lagone Medical Center found a severe reduction in BPH symptoms when supplemented with the Stinging nettle root. Another study found that Swedish flower pollen induced improvements in 78% of men with BPH and BPH-related problems, and fast.
There’s also the aspect of urinary flow, and this doesn’t all come down to the prostate. There’s a few different aspects to proper flow, like the urinary tract, the urethra and the veins themselves that take the urine from the bladder to your exit zone.
One ingredient that’s rarely used, but that has been shown to improve this urinary tract is cornsilk. It improves urethral flow and bladder efficiency.
So when I came across a product called Leaf Origin Easy Flow that contained all of these ingredients in an all-natural form, I decided to give it a whirl and see if I saw any results.
Leaf Origin Easy Flow
So here’s the deal with Easy Flow. It’s a product made by a company out of Marina Del Rey, California called Leaf Origin.
Using only all-natural ingredients, Leaf Origin has a line of products that seek to improve your body through their array of health supplements that improve everything from prostate health to joint health to fat loss.
I dig that they’re all natural. I’m not necessarily worried about harming myself with synthetics or anything like that, but when I have the chance to get something that’s completely natural and comes from the Earth, I will usually go for that product, if I have the chance.
The ingredients in Leaf Origin Easy Flow hit the four necessary components that I suggested up top: beta-sitosterol, stinging nettle root extract, saw palmetto extract, corn milk and Swedish flower pollen.
There’s a couple of ingredients in there as well that I wasn’t familiar with: pumpkin seed extract and indole-3-carbinol. Indole-3-carbinol, as I found, is a phytonutrient found in broccoli that helps control estrogen levels that are responsible for swollen prostates. Pumpkin seed extract is a natural ingredient that’s linked to reducing swelling in the prostate by affecting prostate cells themselves.
They combine all of these products together in a 960 mg capsule for easy consumption. Just pop a couple of the vegetarian capsules and that’s all you have to do.
It costs $33.99 for a 30-day supply (one bottle) on their website at the moment, and they offer a 90-day money-back guarantee at the moment.
Well…does it work?
After a month of using Leaf Origin Easy Flow, there’s no question to me that it’s entirely effective.
I gotta say, it feels good to urinate again. I’ve finally slept a few nights without having to wake up and relieve myself, and the nights where I had to get up, I was actually able to go. I didn’t have to spend ten minutes contracting every muscle in my body in order to squeeze out a few measly drops.
I gotta recommend Leaf Origin Easy Flow. Not only am I going again at regular intervals, but I’m also able to go whenever I need to. It’s nice to be able to urinate like a man again, without surgery or other advanced treatments like that.
So yes. I recommend check it out. Learn more about Leaf Origin Easy Flow on their website.
