The prostate gland is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The prostate is just in front of the rectum. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body. The prostate also secretes fluid that mixes with the sperm to make semen and increase their survivability.
The prostate plays an imperative role in urination and sex. However, according to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among males, affecting 1 in 8 males in the United States. How can men protect their prostate? Here we have some food choices that will help protect it.
Tomatoes are a nutritious food that contains a lot of vitamins and potassium. Besides these, tomatoes offer a very helpful compound, lycopene. Lycopene is a red pigment and powerful antioxidant that can be found in watermelons and pink grapefruit as well. It may lower the risk of developing prostate cancer. Some study also has shown lycopene can slow the progression of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
One thing to note is that lycopene is not water-soluble but oil-soluble, which means it is easier to extract lycopene from tomatoes with oil. If you want to make full use of tomatoes and absorb more lycopene, you should cut or mash tomatoes and cook with oil. If you do not feel like cooking, ketchup and red pasta sauce can work as substitutes.
Broccoli has a chemical called sulforaphane that can prevent prostate cancer. Experiments have confirmed that more broccoli consumption is associated with a lower risk of having prostate cancer.
Moreover, all cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, bok choy, and Brussel sprouts, can help prevent cancer. They contain compounds called glucoraphanin. These compounds are converted to isothiocyanates in the body and can rid the body of cancer-causing toxins, reduce inflammation, and act as antioxidants.
Blueberries are not only tasty fruit but a powerful health booster. They contain all kinds of phytonutrients including anthocyanins, caffeic acids, coumaric acids, quercetin, pterostilbene, and resveratrol, all of which have some degree of antioxidant or anti-inflammatory effect. Anthocyanin is an especially potent antioxidant that gives the berries their blue color.
Other berries, such as strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, are just as nutritious as blueberries and contain many antioxidants and fiber. Grapes also have anthocyanin.
Fish is always a healthy choice, especially fish with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect. Studies have shown that fish oil can reduce the risk of having prostate cancer. However, recent studies have also found that too much fish oil intake will actually increase the possibility of getting prostate cancer. Therefore, you should have fish or fish oil but not excessively.
It also seems that not all fish are created equal. Canned tuna, shrimp, lobster, scallops, and “other” fish are more inflammatory than “dark-meat” fish like salmon or red snapper.
5. Pumpkin seeds
Surprisingly, pumpkin seeds, probably discarded by most, have many beneficial effects on the prostate. Pumpkin seeds contain zinc, an element that can regulate normal prostate functions, and phytosterol, a protective compound that may stop prostate enlargement. They can also help to balance hormones. A handful of pumpkin seeds twice a week will be enough to protect the prostate.
The most convenient way to prepare pumpkin seeds is to wash and dry them. You can then eat them like eating sunflower seeds--open them and eat the real seeds inside. If you have trouble opening the shell, you can steam the pumpkin with its seeds in it.
Prostate health is vital for men. An unhealthy prostate will cause difficulty in urination or erection. But as men get old, the prostate will decline, and benign prostatic hyperplasia will likely develop. Acting early to protect the prostate means less trouble at an older age. The food in this article is common and easily obtainable. Why not try to add some to your diet?
