Ladies and gentlemen, if you wake-up at night….
Make it for the right reason!

The Change of Life

Luckily, age is just a number. However, as we get older, there are a few threatening problems that can affect quality of life. And most men and women between 40-50 years of age have to watch out for these health issues.

It is very important to get regular health check-ups, as many conditions do not reveal themselves and can go undetected for many years. Conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, affecting both men and women, do not cause symptoms until they are advanced and severe. Other common diseases such as diabetes and the effects of alcohol, smoking and excess weight often go undetected until irreversible damage is done.

Men’s Late-Night Trips
Certain conditions such as prostate disorders and impotence are specific to men. Prostate cancer is a disease that affects men from around the age of 45 years and is the third leading cause of death from cancer in men in Canada. It is a slow-growing illness in most cases and many sufferers are unaware that they even have the disease.

Swelling of the prostate gland, known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), can be aggravating to live with. In fact 50% of men have an enlarged prostate by the age of 50. Urgency and frequent urination particularly in the middle of the night, poor or painful urine flow and dribbling are common symptoms.

The good news is that there is a natural answer to BPH, which can be found in Saw Palmetto, a small berry grown in Florida.  The oil in the berry contains free fatty acids which have been shown to inhibit adverse hormonal action in the prostate and reduce inflammation.

The Saw Palmetto oil is available in A.Vogel® Prostate 1, which is indicated to relieve urologic symptoms associated with mild to moderate BPH such as weak urine flow, incomplete voiding, frequent daytime and nighttime urination. (NPN 80007195)

It has been shown to reduce the symptoms of prostate enlargement by 42% in mild cases, 38% in moderate cases and 30% in severe cases after just eight weeks. And it may provide modest relief of symptoms of sexual dysfunction in men with BPH.

It would be highly beneficial for men, 40 years and older, to take Prostate 1 on a daily basis to prevent the occurrence of BPH problems.

Additional tips to reduce symptoms of BPH
 – Avoid drinking cold drinks. They do more harm than good and can cause a sudden blockage of the urinary track, resulting in difficult and painful urination.
– Cut back on coffee, alcohol and cigarettes.
– Maintain a diet high in fibre, vitamins and minerals, and low in fat.
– Drink plenty of water and empty your bladder regularly.
– Keep in shape and maintain an active lifestyle by doing some exercise to retard the aging process, one of the main causes of BPH.
– After age 45, do not neglect yearly medical exams.

Women – Too Hot to be Cool
Menopause: It’s the point in a woman’s life when her monthly periods stop and she is no longer fertile. It is a transformation that every woman between the ages of approximately 48 and 66 will experience.

During the menopausal transition, the ovaries produce lower levels of natural sex hormones. This alteration has a ripple effect on the part of the brain where the body’s temperature is regulated. This area of the brain is misled into believing that the body is overheating, which leads to menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats and even palpitations.

Women can also become moody, tearful, anxious, and may experience fits of anger inexplicable to them and the people around them. It’s as if one symptom creates or worsens another.

If you’re experiencing hot flashes or night sweats – like 80% of women – you are interested in how they can be stopped. A.Vogel® Menopause, will be the answer to help reducing both the frequency and the severity of hot flashes and night sweats. (NPN 80034857)

A.Vogel® Menopause is made from fresh, organic sage plants.  Sage is rich in elements that have anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties, which explain the plant’s unique efficacy in combating hot flashes and night sweats.

Additional tips to reduce symptoms of Menopause
 – Eat healthy natural foods.
– Drink lots of water.
– Exercise regularly, breathe deeply and spend time outside every day.
– Make time to do the things you enjoy.
– Avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, cigarettes and spicy food as they tend to exacerbate the symptoms.
