The 7 Best Foods To Eat For A Healthy Prostate

7-foods-for-prostate

As men grow older, they need to worry about prostate health. In addition to what you may normally hear about the prostate, you may not know that the prostate filters and removes toxins for sperm protection. It makes sense, then, that there is a growing prostate cancer epidemic if the prostate continually filters toxins. This toxic build-up may affect DHT production, and DHT is responsible for the reduced sex drive in older men. It’s a good idea for men over 40 to talk with their health care practitioners and start adjusting their lifestyles to think about ways, foods, or regimens that help keep the prostate healthy. Since prostate cancer is the most common cancer in males and the second leading cause of cancer death in men, it’s best to take early action before it’s too late.

A man can have prostate cancer that is not lethal, but it can interfere with the quality of his life. Most commonly, men with prostate cancer experience complications with sexual activity or develop urinary control issues. A high percentage of men may experience an enlarged prostate and have similar complications, but it is not prostate cancer. If you have an enlarged prostate, you can still use the following foods to keep it healthy.

Oregano: This herb is much more powerful than the flavor it adds to pasta or pizza sauces. While there are antioxidant and antibacterial properties in oregano, carvacrol is one of its main components that has cancer-fighting effects. While tests are still being done on carvacrol, preliminary results show that it is an anti-cancer agent that is effective in killing prostate cancer cells.

Avocados: Not only are avocados rich in magnesium, which is an essential mineral in your body, they are also superfoods that can help reduce symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Avocados are loaded with healthy fats and contain beta-sitosterol, which can boost the immune system, improve urine flow, and can have an anti-inflammatory effect on the prostate. Additional studies show that avocados can help fight the early stages of prostate cancer.

Turmeric: Every person should have more turmeric in his or her diet. It has beneficial anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to fight off cancer cells. The active ingredient, curcumin, can stop cancerous growths in the prostate gland. Because curcumin helps decrease inflammation, it helps to stop tumor cells from metastasizing. Let it be known that this is not a cancer-curing food, but it does play a positive role in prevention.

Sesame Seeds: Yes, those little seeds that are sprinkled on sushi rolls and everything bagels have high levels of zinc. Since men with enlarged prostates or prostate cancer tend to have low zinc levels, having proper zinc levels can help prevent early damage to the prostate. You can also eat pumpkin seeds to boost your zinc levels, which ultimately aids your immune system. You have to eat about 1/4 cup of sesame seeds for 2.8 milligrams of zinc, just FYI.

Saw Palmetto: This plant has been used as an herbal remedy for many years. In more recent years, the plant’s berries have been known to help urinary tract problems, increase libido, and increase sperm production. Saw palmetto also helps to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. You can make teas, blend it in smoothies, or find saw palmetto in herbal supplements.

Bell Peppers: Citrus fruits often steal the limelight when it comes to vitamin C, which may help fight BPH, but bell peppers actually have higher amounts of it. You can also get vitamin C from other veggies like dark leafy greens or broccoli. Mixing up your sources of vitamin C may help to improve your prostate’s health.

Green Tea: Green tea is a healthy beverage you should incorporate into your diet because it has a wealth of antioxidants. EGCG is the specific antioxidant in green tea that may actually help kill cancer cells in the prostate. Additionally, green tea inhibits enzymes that fuel cancer growth. Men with prostate cancer can drink green tea to help decrease cancerous tissue and promote overall health.

In addition to these prostate-helping foods, you can consume flaxseed oil, thyme oil, stinging nettle, pyguem, ginger, tomatoes, or take a natural supplement to improve the health of your prostate.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer - I was advised that I should receive a therapy called HIUF High Intensity Ultrasound Frequency - There is a company in Germany that uses this treatment for Prostate Cancer - They have a 98.0% success rate with their method...Have you ever heard of such a treatment. - The one thing that interested me is that it is not chemo or radiation... There is another one called Proton Therapy... What do you know about these treatments?

    A:

    These therapies are new and better/safer than chemo and radiation but remember, no therapy can undo bad diet, unhealthy lifestyle, and unhealthy/negative thinking. If you undergo the therapies, don't forget that disease conveys a message to you to change your life to the better. You did something to harm your prostate and no therapy can undo this fact! We have an article "MALE PROSTATE HEALTH" you may find interesting. Herbally, you'd fare well from the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE.

    Q: I just finished your article re: Beta Prostate & Prostate care which I found interesting. In the advertising of beta prostate it is mentioned that the active ingredient in saw palmetto, pygeum, etc., is betasitasterol, which claims to contain 300 mg from sugar cane. The claim is also made that it would take 1,000 pills of saw palmetto to equal 300 mg of betasitasterol. My question is, does your product contain this amount of betasitasterol & is it necessary to have this amount of ingredient in order for the product to be effective?

    A:

    The product is STANDARDIZED meaning it has been tampered with. Regular saw palmetto and pygeum do not naturally contain 1000 mg of betasitosterol. They are standardizing it to make it potent to deal with the prostate which they don't want to naturally take care of so they mess with the herbs and make it more potent to deal or treat the prostate gland that they don't want to naturally take care of. It's like products for lactose intolerant. Instead of telling folks to avoid certain things because they are lactose intolerant, they make a drug so that lactose intolerant people can keep on unwisely eating things they shouldn't due to being lactose intolerant. Our formula is NOT standardized, but stabilized and complete, the way you find plants in Nature. It is not necessary to have such a high amount of an alkaloid.

    Q: If I take the Prostate formula, will interfere with the treatment I am undergoing, currently for prostate cancer?

    A:

    If your treatment is chemical drug based, I wouldn't recommend taking herbs. It defeats the purpose. Herbs are organic. Herbs are ordained by Nature and God. Herbs are cleansing, building, and therapeutic. Whereas, chemical drugs are man-made, greatly toxic, and pollute the body.
