Home remedies for dealing with an enlarged prostate

It is sad but true that men in their 60s or even in their 50s develop some serious problems in their prostate gland. It is a very important gland in men’s reproductive system that performs a very important function, i.e. to secrete seminal fluid that nourishes and preserves sperm. There are different prostate problems men develop, and one of the problems is the enlarged prostate, which is known as BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
