To all the Men who are concerned about prostate health. it is true that as men age in years usually after age 50 plus, but usually a bit older than that,but for some its after age 60 plus, it varies from person to person, the hormonal changes to the prostate, plus a healthy diet with special nutrition supplements can help prevent inflammation of the prostate. Unfortunately, there are certain foods and drinks that can aggravate inflammation and whilst keeping slim and healthy is also a help.
I have done some nutritional research to help you out, or at least give you a little knowledge, remember prevention is better than cure!
What are the warning signs? – When a man goes to pass urine it comes out slowly or scanty, this means it’s not fully coming out as it should, which can lead to other problems this is a tell-tale sign that you can your doctor a visit, to make sure if it’s your prostate or is it your bladder?
Once you have gathered correct information, certain diets help to prevent it from getting worse, leaving things unattended can lead to worse case scenario, one wants to avoid prostate cancer, or any surgery unless it is really necessary.
Diets that help to keep prostate healthy and food supplementation, awareness and include it on a conscious daily basis, will be building up your health, in general, and build up the resistance to disease.
FOODS TO CUT DOWN, – Fried foods, junk food, white flour, chips greasy or fast food.
Eggs & Poultry.
Processed foods & sugar. Caffeine.
Dairy. Alcohol. Barbecue foods or burnt foods avoid
Bacon, sausages, ham, salami have nitrates to stop the meat from going rancid, the nitrites are cancer-causing, why eat these man-made meats, when you can eat cooked natural foods?
FOODS TO INCREASE IN YOUR DIET –
Variety of vegetables especially Broccoli, kale, and cabbage family. But all veg is high in fibre which is great for the body as it is essential for good health.
Lentils, beans, nuts especially PUMPKIN SEED NUTS, are very important for prevention of inflammation as they contain omegas and high in zinc, zinc is a very essential mineral to the prostate.
Vitamin c – found in all strawberries blackberries, raspberries, all fruits have vitamin C.
Watermelon, as it helps to flush the system out.
Fish, of all types especially salmon this fish not only has the omegas but has an oil to reduce inflammation, and clear arteries. Also good for the heart health.
Garlic, Peppers, all oily fish have anti-inflammatory properties includes herring, mackerel, sardines.
Fish, in general, is low in fat and high in omegas fatty acids, which we all need.
Have occasionally vegetarian days, it gives the body a rest from eating too much meat, as meat is one of the hardest foods to digest.
TOMATOES contain LYCOPENE, a very valuable nutrient to prevent prostate cancer, eat them raw preferably organic, but in fact, the evidence is that tomato sauces, avoid tinned tomatoes, or tomatoes that are G. M. MODIFIED AVOID ALTOGETHER, BUY ORGANIC IF POSSIBLE TOMATO SAUCES IN JARS, NEVER TINNED.
Use in your favourite pasta dish, remember white flour pasta has fewer nutrients than the whole grain ones, or try different flavours to keep your taste buds happy!
breakfast suggestions- AVOCADO, & ORGANIC SALAD, TOMATOES, CUCUMBER, CRISPY LETTUCE, OR GREEN LEAVES OF YOUR CHOICE, OLIVE OIL, LEMON, for flavour, with 2 rye crispbreads, a handful of Pumpkins seeds anytime you fancy as a snack.
breakfast choice 2- PORRIDGE OATS, use a little honey, or just plain, green tea, or herbal teas are great, avoid coffee.
Lunch – FISH ANY OILY FISH, BOILED POTATOES, & BROCCOLI OR VEGETABLE YOU LIKE. GREEN VEGETABLES MAKE YOUR BLOOD MORE ALKALINE.
DESSERT – ANY FRUIT YOU LIKE, AVOID CREAM AND FATTY FOODS, INSTEAD OF CREAM REPLACE with coconut yoghurt, plain or other vegetarian yoghurts. Natural juices either blend organic veg or fruit and make your own juices or smoothies organic produce. Avoid pesticides or remove skin, unless organic always wash well.
Drink plenty of water, good quality water, we need 7-8 glasses of water to flush the system, otherwise guess what?! it takes it from the bowel and recycles it as the body is crying for water to do its work, it is just like plumbing, if you don’t drink enough your body cant clean itself properly, and you get dry joints too.
This info is based on nutritional research.
Selenium – a very important mineral which is deficient in UK soils, found in very few foods, the foods have to be growing in rich selenium-rich soil to have it in the foods.

Nettle Root – Nettle is also rich in various nutrients that are involved in healthy prostate function and hormonal balance.
Avena Sativa (Green Oat Seed) – Oat seeds (in their milk stage) have historically been regarded as one of the most valuable male health tonics. While a remarkably high content of zinc (which inhibits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone) undoubtedly one of the reasons for the health benefits, milky oat seed also contains various phytonutrients which may support prostate and overall male health.
Pumpkin Seed – Pumpkin seeds have a high content of zinc, as well as being a good source of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide fatty acids which complement the role of zinc.
Prickly Pear Flower – the Excessive activity of the enzymes 5-alpha-reductase and aromatase are antagonistic to prostate health.
Stabilised Rice Bran (SRB) – SRB is perhaps the most potent natural source of beta-sitosterol
Parsley Leaf – In addition to its historical use as a tonic for urinary system health, parsley provides an abundance of protective flavonoids – especially apigenin, which has been the subject of a much scientific interest regarding its potential role in prostate health.
Cornsilk – Like parsley, cornsilk has been used historically to maintain the health of the urinary tract. Although much of this is associated with the content of maizenic acid, there are various other constituents that may be supportive as well.
Acai Berry- Acai berries provide a good source various micronutrients that may help maintain healthy prostate function, such as zinc and vitamin E. However, an even greater focus on acai regarding prostate health is associated with the remarkably high concentration of plant sterols and the wide range of antioxidant flavonoids and carotenoids.
Watercress – The glucosinolate compounds in watercress have drawn a great deal of scientific attention with regards to prostate health. This under-rated superfood is also abundant in powerful and protective antioxidant flavonoids and carotenoids.
Sea Buckthorn Berry & Leaf – Numerous constituents within sea buckthorn possess research-proven properties that are relevant to maintaining healthy prostate function. The carotenoid lycopene, several types of antioxidant flavonoids, omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins C and E are the most notable examples.
