The prostate is about the size of a walnut and it forms part of a male’s reproductive system. The prostate gland is made up of two lobes, or regions. An outer tissue layer encloses the gland. The prostate is located right in front of the rectum and right beneath the bladder. The bladder stores urine, urine passes through the urethra, the prostate surrounds the urethra. Urine is discarded out of the body through the urethra, which is a canal that is connected to the bladder and leads to the outside the body.

Prostate Function

All functions of the prostate are not known by scientist, but one of its main roles is during a sexual climax. It squeezes fluid into the urethra when sperm passes through it. This fluid helps make up semen which energizes sperm and makes the canal in the vagina less acidic.

BPH Overview

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) – is a condition occurring when the prostate gland starts to enlarge. This potentially slows or blocks the urine stream. The other names for benign prostatic hyperplasia are: benign prostatic hypertrophy, enlarged prostate, and BPH. Only men can develop BPH. 8% of men from the ages of 31 to 40 have BPH. 80% of men over 80 years old have BPH.

Big Belly Shocker

Yes, here is the shocker, guys: If you have a big belly - Belly Fat, that fat is putting out a female hormone called estrogen. Oops! Now get this: Increased estrogen will increase DHT and that elevation can increase your prostate! Who needs BPH?

Insulin insensitivity will increase the estrogen too. That is another road that you do not want to go down!

Men & Manly Hormones

Have you ever heard of "andropause"? Have you heard of low testosterone? Actually, it is more complicated than that. Read on. . .

Androgens (andro for male) are testosterone, DHT and androstenedione. There is normally a balance or ratio of testosterone to estrogen. The problem is when the estrogen is dominant. (Yes, men naturally have a small amount of estrogen. If you have a big belly, you may have too much estrogen! That tissue will produce estrogen.)

The causes of andropause include: adrenal function, dysfunctions in liver detoxification, problems in the balance of friendly vrs. unfriendly organisms growing in your intestines and stomach, testosterone synthesis, aromatase activity, beta-glucuronidase activity, 5-alpha reductase activity, 17 and 20 lyase activity, estrogen metabolism, etc. The back and forth communication between the pituitary and hypothalamus can also be involved.

Insulin insensitivity can increase the estrogen because it dials up the aromatase.
