Mitochondrial dysfunction increases with age, and is an etiologic factor in many disorders associated with aging—including common prostate conditions.
Pharmaceutical treatment of prostatitis can actually worsen mitochondrial dysfunction, putting men who have been so treated at increased risk.
The good news is that mitochondrial dysfunction—both in the prostate and systemically—is reversible through carefully targeted nutritional interventions.
In this free hour-long webinar, holistic urologist Dr. Geo Espinosa, offers practical evidence-based tips for identifying men at risk, and implementing nutritional strategies to improve mitochondrial function.
- The three main types of prostate diseases
- The role of mitochondrial dysfunction as a contributing factor in prostate disease
- The mitochondrial adverse effects of pharmaceutical treatment of prostatitis.
- How a novel form of ubiquinone, MitoQ, can improve mitochondrial function, and help men with prostate condition
