As men age, prostate enlargement is par for the course. In fact, 80 percent of all men experience prostate problems by the age of 70. If we lived to 100, 100 percent of us would have an enlarged prostate.
The good news is that there are things you can do to reduce the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, which include frequent urination, a greater urgency, pain, and a slow urine stream.
One helpful way to reduce an enlarged prostate is to eat a nutritious diet. Research shows that a diet high in meat and dairy products can increase your risk of both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer, while a mostly plant-based diet is the best for better prostate and overall health.
Some foods are particularly beneficial to men with an enlarged prostate, including foods that affect the production of your hormones, such as testosterone. Here are five of the best foods you can eat to reduce prostate symptoms and improve the health of your prostate.
Tomatoes are rife with lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant that can benefit the cells of the prostate gland. While raw tomatoes have lycopene, levels are much higher when the tomatoes are cooked, which also makes the lycopene more available to the body.
Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and other berries are great for the prostate because they’re full of antioxidants that fight free radicals, which can cause disease over time, including prostate cancer.
Berries are also rich in compounds called anthocyanins, which lower blood pressure and make blood vessels more elastic. Harvard Medical School recommends eating berries at least three times a week.
Broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts are among the most popular cruciferous veggies, which contain sulforaphane, a chemical that is believed to target cancer cells and promote optimal prostate health.
A 2000 study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that three or more servings of cruciferous veggies each week cuts the risk of developing prostate cancer in half.
Nuts, including almonds and cashews, are high in zinc, which is an essential nutrient and one that helps to regulate the balance between testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, the male hormones that stimulate the growth of both benign and malignant prostate cells. Other foods high in zinc include shellfish and legumes.
Oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and limes are high in vitamin C, which, according to studies, prevents testosterone-related prostate enlargement. In high doses, vitamin C has even been shown in studies to be effective for treating prostate cancer.
Although these foods are among the best for your prostate health, they’re not the only beneficial ones. Some of the best “foods” for the prostate, including stinging nettle and saw palmetto berries, aren’t even all that edible.
Prostavol Prostate Support is a supplement with these and other potent all-natural ingredients, including zinc, tomato fruit powder, red raspberry fruit powder, and green tea leaf, which improve urine flow and decrease frequency and urgency.
In addition to a nutritious diet, your daily dose of Prostavol will help promote optimal prostate health as it goes to work, helping reduce existing symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
