3 Turmeric Benefits for Improved Prostate Health

3 minutes to read


In your younger years, you probably didn’t give much thought to your prostate. But once it starts making itself known through urinary symptoms like increased frequency, pain, urgency, or a weak stream, your prostate’s health will become something you actively seek to improve.

Whether you’re looking to reduce the symptoms of your current prostate problems or you want to help prevent them, turmeric is one of your best natural defenses.

Turmeric is that vibrant yellow spice that adds color and flavor to Asian dishes such as curry. It’s been used for centuries in India not only as a culinary ingredient, but also as medicine.

Turmeric contains compounds known as curcuminoids, which have powerful effects throughout your body. Curcumin is the most potent curcuminoid in turmeric, and it’s responsible for many of turmeric’s positive health effects.

Here are three important takeaways from the research into turmeric and its benefits for prostate health.


1. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory

The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are widely known. Acute and chronic inflammation are the culprits behind many health problems, including prostatitis and many cancers. The phytochemicals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents in turmeric fight aging and inflammation all over the body, including your prostate.


2. Curcumin improves symptoms of an enlarged prostate

Curcumin has been shown in many studies to relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Prostate enlargement is par for the course as we age, and turmeric is one of the best natural remedies for it, largely due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin can improve urinary symptoms, reduce pelvic pain, and protect against prostatitis.


3. Curcumin supports erectile function

In addition to supporting good prostate health, curcumin may be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction in some men. A 2014 study found that curcumin’s effects were similar to those of Viagra, producing a significantly improved erectile response after 12 weeks of curcumin therapy.

How to Get the Most Benefits Using Turmeric

Simply adding turmeric to your cooking won’t provide you with enough curcumin to get the clinically tested benefits your body needs. Happily, turmeric comes in concentrated pill form.


Prostavol’s Turmeric Supplement is a curcumin complex featuring 1,300 milligrams of 95 percent curcuminoids. In addition, it contains Piperine extract, since the beneficial compounds of turmeric are better absorbed when pepper is thrown into the mix.

A daily curcumin supplement is just one of many ways to improve the health of your prostate. Take a whole-person approach to prostate health: Exercise daily, get adequate sleep, eat nutritious food, hydrate often, and reduce your stress.

Supplementation along with a healthy lifestyle is a one-two punch that will help stave off prostate problems and improve existing symptoms.
