For many men, the risk of prostate problems increases over the years. Although age is not the only culprit, it is certainly one of the determining factors.
As with many other diseases, nutrition is a very important element. In fact, few know that protecting prostate health is possible by consuming these foods. But first let’s find out what the prostate is and its importance.
Because it is important
The prostate is a gland found in the human reproductive and urinary system. If this gland becomes enlarged it can lead to various ailments. Among the most common we have a burning sensation when urinating and a frequent need to urinate.
It is important to consult your doctor if we notice blood in the urine and any discomfort while urinating.
It is vital to keep the prostate healthy because it can cause problems with the urinary system. What perhaps not everyone knows is that according to experts, nutrition affects the health of this gland. Let’s find out why what we eat matters and what foods to consume to preserve the health of this very important gland.
Few people know that protecting prostate health is possible by consuming these foods
According to recent scientific studies, nutrition plays a fundamental role in prostate health. There are several factors that can lead to the enlargement of this gland.
Among these is the increase in the waistline and the rise in triglyceride and cholesterol values. In addition, high blood pressure and the onset of type 2 diabetes also play a role.
Many of these disorders that can lead to prostate enlargement could be controlled by following proper nutrition. In particular, some foods can help soothe the inflammation of this gland.
Omega 3 are polyunsaturated fatty acids. These fats are essential for our health. Omega 3s reduce triglyceride levels and therefore it is really essential to introduce them into our body.
Among the foods richest in omega 3 we find some fatty fish such as salmon and oily fish. In this regard, we explained that few people know that this beloved fish quickly lowers triglycerides, cholesterol and high blood pressure.
We also find it in large quantities in linseed oil, soybean oil and walnuts. Finally, among the vegetables we also find them in carrots, squash and courgettes.
Cooked apples and pears and vitamin C
Among the fruit, experts recommend the consumption of some types of cooked fruit. Specifically, cooked pears and apples are good for prostate health but should not be sweetened. Fruits containing vitamin C and beta-carotene are also allies for the health of this gland.
It is important to consume foods rich in omega 3 and limit the consumption of foods containing omega 6. In fact, omega 6 could be partly responsible for the inflammatory states of this gland.
Therefore, experts recommend reducing the consumption of meat and sausages, fried foods, eggs, cheeses, refined flours, sweets and sugary drinks.
