Abstract/OtherAbstract:
It is estimated that over 15% of men use natural biologic-based therapies, which includes herbal products and supplements. There are certain conditions that are specific to men, such as erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hypertrophy, for which there is some evidence of the efficacy and safety of herbal medications. Furthermore, men may also be more likely to use supplements for energy improvement, muscle gain, and exercise tolerance, and there are a number of supplements proven to aid in these. Practitioners must understand the safety and efficacy of these agents, as well as the patient's full history and goals, prior to recommending any of the therapies discussed herein.
