(“Stevia Corp” or the “Company”), a healthcare company focused on the commercial development of products that support a healthy lifestyle announced today that the company has filed a provisional patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a proprietary herbal supplement formula for the treatment of BPH and symptoms related to BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia).

More than 40,000,000 men at any time in the United States have BPH. BPH (a/k/a benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlarged prostate) predominantly affects men over the age of 50. BPH is the most common medical condition in males over 50 worldwide. In 2000, a study estimated there were over 11,000,000 new cases of BPH reported worldwide each year. BPH symptoms include difficulty in urinating, difficulty in completely emptying the bladder, slow or intermittent urination stream, and sudden urges to urinate although the bladder is not full.

BPH is initially diagnosed by a general practitioner or a urologist. If the doctor determines that your prostate is enlarged, he or she may order a full battery of tests including a urinalysis, PVR, uroflowmetry and/or a urodynamic pressure flow study. The doctor may also order different imaging scans including ultrasounds, cystoscopy and MRI.
