Recommend to others!
Prostate is a small gland available only in men, situated right underneath of the bladder. It surrounds the urethra just like a collar. Its use is for secreting most of the fluids that are found in the sperm and that help spermatozoids swim easily towards the woman’s uterus.

As any organ in the body, the prostate can suffer some ‘defections’ too. In men aged over 45 the prostate can enlarge mostly due to hormonal variations. At the beginning it does not give any symptoms, but as time goes by urinary problems can occur if the prostate presses the urethra.

This process of prostate enlargement is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Urinating can become a difficult process and men feel like they need to go to the bathroom quite often, even though they do not urinate a lot. More than 90% of the men aged over 60 have BPH and more than half of them have the symptoms present.

Besides BPH, the prostate can be affected by inflammations too. This is called a prostatitis. Prostatitis can be a result of sexually transmitted infections or rough physical activities made on a full bladder. Sometimes even jogging with a full bladder can lead to prostatitis. A men having prostatitis will most likely feel pain in the crutch area and pain or burnings during the process of urinating. Sometimes the urine can be milky, can even contain blood or smell unpleasant. On a general status the man will feel tired, will probably have flu-like symptoms, fever and back-pains.

There are a few easy things  men can do in order to avoid the prostate affections:
  1. Eat more beans, walnuts, tofu and aliments that are rich in vitamin C and E, zinc and beta-carotene. Doctors recommend men to consume three times a week a fish meal. Their omega-3 acids are good for increasing our immunity and prevent infections.
  2. Eat pumpkin seeds. These seeds contain an important quantity of zinc and phytosterols that protect the prostate. If you want to protect your prostate eat daily 1-2 teaspoons of pumpkin seeds. They are quite delicious and easy to eat.
  3. Tomatoes are also prostate protectors. Their red color, given by lycopene has an important function for our health, not just a decorative effect. Tomatoes decrease the risk of developing prostate cancer! They also ease the BPH symptoms. 2-3 tomatoes a day should help you maintain your prostate integrity for sure.
  4. Try the small palm tree extract. You can find this natural product in capsules named Saw Palmetto Herb Extract. This extract is great for reducing the number of ‘visits’ to the bathroom during the night, it improves the urinary flux and protects prostate in general. You doctor might recommend this treatment for 3 months as the positive effects can only be seen after 2 months of treatment.
  5. Stop smoking! An American study has proven that quitting smoking reduces the symptoms of BPH and also decreases the risk of developing prostate cancer. So…think of what is best for you: smoking or your health?
  6. Make love. Due to the fact that the prostate is involved in the semen production process, ejaculation seems to have a therapeutic effect. It is like a special prostate exercise. Not to mention that is benefic for you whole body too.

Taking care of the prostate is not a tough thing to do. These few tips showed here can be included in your daily life quite easy. Eating natural products and adopting a healthy lifestyle can always do wonders.
