Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Human body requires a wide spectrum of food sources in order to stay healthy. The more diverse and healthy a person’s diet is (fruit, vegetables, whole grains, healthy proteins, etc.), the greater range of opportunities his body has to get the best nutrition. The same is true for the health of the prostate gland – there are many foods that can help maintain it. There are 5 groups of foods that are good for prostate health:

Foods rich in selenium

This mineral is a part of enzymes from the family called glutathione peroxidase - these are antioxidants that play a significant role in the health of the prostate gland. Selenium can also slow down the growth of cancerous tumors due to its ability to increase the immune activity of cells and inhibit angiogenesis in tumors. Brazil nuts, garlic, seafood (oysters), fish (tuna, sardines, salmon), sunflower seeds, shiitake mushrooms and brown rice are rich in selenium.

Foods rich in lycopene

It’s a carotenoid pigment responsible for the bright colors (especially red) of fruit and vegetables. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that shows anticancer properties as well. It’s been reported that lycopene can help men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia. Tomatoes are the best source of this antioxidant, so look for the products like tomato juice, tomato paste, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.; however, it can also be found in other fruit and vegetables that have bright colors – watermelon, pink grapefruit and apricots.

Cruciferous vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, beets, artichokes, cabbage, etc. contain a compound called sulforaphane glucosinolat. When a person eats such vegetables, this compound transforms into sulforaphane, an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Broccoli sprouts are the richest source of this element. Enriching your diet with cruciferous vegetables can reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer as well as other types of cancer.

Foods rich in polyphenols

These are peppermint, Mexican oregano, sweet cherry, blackberry, black chokeberry, green tea, turmeric, broccoli, pomegranate, green olives, sweet basil, etc. Polyphenols contained in these foods can help prevent and even treat prostate cancer.

Anti-inflammatory foods

Anti-inflammatory products like ginger, capers, onion, apples and berries contain a flavonoid called quercetin, which is very beneficial for prostate health. Useful compounds found in flax and pumpkin seeds as well as in some types of berries can also help maintain a healthy hormone balance. Such spices as oregano, cinnamon and turmeric can help prevent prostate problems as well.

As you may see, there are many healthy options that can help a man keep his prostate gland healthy. So, instead of looking for online drugs and supplements, it’s worth revising your diet and filling it with beneficial foods.
