50% of men over 50 years suffer benign prostatic hyperplasia
Although it is a benign tumor, affects the quality of life of the person.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a tumor that grows in men over age 50 , and causes 50% of them suffer from this problem. This is an adenoma of the prostate (not a malignant tumor) , but it affects the quality of life of people , causes discomfort when urinating or makes this frequently , that those affected get up at night, causing a number of problems that undermine the quality of life , said Mr. Gustavo Rengifo Gonzales , dean of the Faculty of Science and Philosophy of the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia.

I note that the prostate grows naturally , as age increases . The condition is associated with the hormone testosterone , even at times this hyperplasia has been associated with prostate cancer , but they are two different entities.

In many cases the treatment is surgical prostate some discomfort some people have left, as have problems in their sexual function is removed , but still. Therefore they are looking for drugs that can mitigate this condition . And in recent years there is an intensive search for medicinal plants , said the doctor.

In the United States there is a plant called Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens ), which grows in the swamps of Florida, and sold lots for prostate hyperplasia, fresh or processed.

"In Peru we have worked a lot with achiote . However, a study conducted at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia by Dr. Luis Montes and Abraham Vaisberg Zegarra found that did not produce greater benefit than placebo . " However, the achiote is quite marketed as a plant for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia. In the world of the families of plants known for their antitumor effects are cruciferous , belonging to broccoli , kale and cabbage. They are widely used because they are substances that inhibit the growth of tumors . A crucifer is maca (Lepidium meyenii ) , which grows particularly in areas of high altitude.

Maca comes in different varieties and colors, ranging from white to black , but the most used is the yellow . The expert reported that the University Cayetano Heredia have investigated whether different types of maca produce the same biological effect, and have shown to have different effects. "When we investigated the red maca we found that lower prostate weight , red maca is able to reduce or prevent hyperplasia occurs therefore serve as a treatment for people who suffer from this disease."

He said that the reduction is quite spectacular , carrying the weight of the prostate near the control value , which is a very favorable effect. "This gives light for this plant to which no one had ever mentioned , even in the chronicles of the conquest ; there is , therefore , no historical reference on this plant. But scientific studies have shown this property that we believe will be useful for patients , and the communities that can now cultivate this particular type of plant. "
