Plants That Give You Peeing Power

Dear Health Conscious Reader,

Do you find yourself standing over the urinal waiting for something to happen, but nothing does? If you’ve ever had this problem, you’re not alone.

It’s one of the most common parts of aging I see in new male patients. Sixty percent of men over 60 have weak stream when urinating. That number shoots up to nearly 80% ten years later.1

In fact, weak “pee power” is one of the oldest health issues in the world. We know from ancient scrolls that the Egyptians developed their own formulas for treating it as far back as 2000 BC.2

The use of simple plant formulas to promote health goes back to the beginning of civilization. It’s called phytotherapy (“phyto” is the Greek word for plant).

The Journal of Urology3 published a major study last year on men that had age-related urinary tract issues. It looked at all the available data on plant extracts like pygeum and saw palmetto. They found that all of them can significantly increase your “stream power.”

Researchers in Japan got similar results in a group of men aged 49 and up . . . with a common mushroom.4 Pure extract boosted their flow in just 12 weeks.

So what makes plants so potent? Plants are your only source of essential nutrients called “phytosterols.” Your body uses them to maintain the health of your cell membranes.

They’re also potent antioxidants. They can reduce inflammation and improve blood flow. They help to maintain healthy tissue in your prostate and urinary tract.

Beta sitosterol is one of the most powerful. Certain traditional plants and herbs have high concentrations, including

  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Stinging nettle
  • Saw palmetto
  • African plum (pygeum africanum)
  • Maca root

In fact, beta sitosterol is commonly used overseas—with good reason. Years of clinical evidence point to its potency. The British Journal of Urology published results from a clinical trial of almost 200 men with weak flow. They took 130 mg of beta sitosterol for 6 months.

The result? They got significant relief, naturally.5

You can get beta sitosterol through diet. Here are a few foods rich in it:

Food (200 cal serving)

Beta sitosterol (mg)



Pistachios (raw)




Macadamia nuts




Of course, today’s food supply isn’t as good as it used to be. To ensure you get the full benefit, supplements are a better way to go.

I’ve just finished my own formula that promotes prostate health and urinary tract function. It’s packed with pure, high-quality extracts from all the traditional remedies I mentioned. It’s also rich in antioxidants and other natural compounds to keep your flow strong.

It’s called ProstaVive. Give it a try today.

To Your Good Health,
