Molecular Mechanisms of Nutritional Interventions and Supplements for the Management of Sexual Disfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia provides the epidemiologic data linking diet with BPH and ED along with a deep explanation on why nutritional approaches and different macronutrients may modify the pathogenesis of the disease. Coverage includes the relevance/epidemiology of the disease; pathophysiological events causing the disease; available therapeutic options; molecular mechanisms of action of available treatments; epidemiological and intervention studies suggesting the benefit of diet as therapeutic option for BPH and ED; and potential mechanisms of action of nutritional based approaches as treatment for BPH and ED. By combining medicine, diet, and lifestyle options, this title provides a truly multidisciplinary approach to BPH and ED making it a unique resource for those treating BPH and an irreplaceable reference guide for those in research.

Key Features

  • Provides comprehensive review of lifestyle factors and their contribution to BPH and ED pathogenesis
  • Provides comprehensive review on the effect of different dietary patterns on BPH and ED pathogenesis, and whether dietary modifications may be a viable treatment option for BPH and/or ED
