Top 13 Supplements for Prostatitis*

Inflammation of the prostate, or prostatitis, is accompanied by uncomfortable, annoying, even life-changing symptoms, especially in men who develop nonbacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Several natural supplements can help fight the inflammation and infection and relieve the associated urinary symptoms, such as urinary retention, burning sensation when urinating, and painful ejaculation, among others. Our medical advisors have reviewed the top supplements for prostatitis based on successful clinical trials and the latest research.

1. Beta-sitosterol*



Beta-sitosterol is a cholesterol-like substance derived from plants (phytosterol) that does not act like cholesterol. Instead, it acts like the prescription drug finasteride (Proscar), which inhibits the activity of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase and is used to manage symptoms associated with BPH, such as urinary frequency, urinary urgency, and flow problems. Some men, however, take beta-sitosterol for to reduce symptoms of prostatitis. A typical dose of beta-sitosterol is 60 to 135 mg daily, and it usually takes about four weeks before symptoms improve. Potential side effects include diarrhea, gas, and nausea. Read more on beta-sitosterol and prostatitis
