Among the natural products for the prostate we can point out:


The pollen produced by the laboratory of Santa Ildegarde, of the Benedictine Monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, is a preparation in the form of granules, with an unmistakable sweet and aromatic fragrance, to be dissolved in the mouth, chewing them slowly, or dissolved in hot water, milk or herbal tea, or mixed with honey or yogurt. Bee pollen is a natural remedy for the prostate, a concentrate of all the nutrients present in nature, such as water, proteins, sugars, lipids, mineral salts, vitamins and enzymes, and the fruit of bee processing, which add lactic ferments and yeasts to it, in order to preserve its integrity. For this reason, it is a powerful food supplement, restorative, which promotes metabolism in general and remineralizes the cells, preventing aging and counteracting the action of free radicals.

Produced by the Benedictine Nuns of Orte, it is an onion and artichoke based herbal extract, precious allies to fight prostate inflammation, cystitis, and diabetes, as well as azotemia and dropsy, due to the high glucoquinin content in both.

Onion is a natural antibacterial and an excellent diuretic because it is rich in Vitamin C and potassium salts. Always used to treat urinary tract diseases and water retention, it is also used to promote digestion and metabolism. It is a natural antioxidant, which prevents the aging of cells.

The artichoke, also rich in sodium and potassium, provides the body with phosphorus and calcium, while the caffeic acid contained in its leaves and flavonoids help digestion and liver function. The cynaria contained in it has diuretic and purifying effects.

It is recommended to take it, away from meals, 3 times a day, 30 drops in a little water.


Also from the Benedictine Nuns of Orte, of the Monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, comes the strawberry tree extract. It is a precious help in case of cystitis, prostatic hypertrophy, water retention and for all those disorders of the urinary system. The leaves of arbutus are rich in active ingredients such as arbutin, a panacea for the intestinal flora as it has a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action; used in decoctions, infusions and herbal teas, they are an excellent diuretic, they cure cystitis, urethritis, prostatitis, and inflammation of the stomach and intestine. Strawberry tree extract is enriched by the presence of Blueberry, Devil's Claw and Calendula. The Blueberry, a fruit known for the benefits it brings to blood circulation, and naturally rich in antioxidants that prevent aging of the cells making up the DNA, helps the liver, heart and fights cholesterol, is an excellent anti-inflammatory.

Devil's Claw has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, lowers blood cholesterol and uric acid, for the benefit of the kidneys.

Calendula stimulates the production of bile, used as an adjuvant in gynaecological treatments, reduces blood pressure and has antiulcerous effects on the gastric mucosa.

Here is that the Tisana Silvestre ALL'EPILOBIO of the Benedictine Nuns of the Monastery of Orte is what is needed for the treatment of the enlarged prostate, and for all those disorders related to the urinary system. The Epilobio, an annual or perennial herb, contains hundreds of species, with colorful flowers, known for the care of the prostate. Epilobio is the basis of this herbal tea, it is a natural anti-inflammatory for the prostate, as it intervenes in the treatment of benign hyperplasia and generally improves the urinary system, because it is rich in flavonoids. The presence of tannins favors the reduction of the flow in those cases of abundant menstrual cycle, because it has a draining function of secretions, and prevents the occurrence of bleeding.

Used in herbal teas for the treatment of urinary tract, cystitis, urethritis and uratic lithiasis.
