Prostate Awareness Foundation Evaluating Crila® Supplement to Determine its Efficacy in Men with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

The Prostate Awareness Foundation announced today has begun recruiting 25 men to participate in an evaluation of Crila®, an herbal supplement made from Crinum latifolium, a prostate herb used by Vietnamese royalty for centuries.  The men selected will have different stages of BPH and will be given a six-month supply of Crila® provided by Crila Health.

BPH is the abbreviation for a condition called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia that affects many men over the age of 40 and the majority of men by 70.  BPH does not lead to prostate cancer but many men with prostate cancer also have BPH. Symptoms can include frequent and urgent urination especially at night, the sensation of not completely voiding the bladder, weak urinary stream and the need to urinate again soon after having done so. (See the BPH questionnaire developed by the American Urologic Association to determine your level of BPH)

There are a number of pharmaceutical drugs available for this condition, as well as a multitude of supplements on the market claiming to offer relief for this condition. Surgical intervention in advanced cases can be an option for symptom relief.

Crila® is an herbal supplement derived from a unique strain of Crinum latifolium, a lily only grown in Vietnam. Crinum was used by the nobility of Vietnam for centuries to improve prostate health function. All aspects of Crila® are controlled: from research and development, organic cultivation, manufacture and distribution, following industry best practices of “Seed to Shelf.” Crila Health has a solid reputation for good business practices and ethics.

Those readers who are experiencing BPH and would like to be considered for this evaluation should contact Ken Malik at the Prostate Awareness Foundation at or call him directly at 415-675-5661.
