As mentioned in the previous post, one of the most common health problems experienced by men is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Fortunately, nature has provided us with some amazing gifts that may support healthy prostate function.
Recent research has found that a combination of herbs called:
- Saw Palmetto,
- Nettle root
- Small-leafed Willow
are very effective at managing BPH and reducing the troublesome symptoms. A combination of these beneficial herbs can be taken in a convenient capsule to manage BPH and may also be worth considering where there is a strong family history of BPH.
Zinc is like the prostate’s best friend! It is an essential nutrient for men’s health, and having low zinc levels can create health problems (it also helps make robust sperm and gets them to swim straight).
Zinc rich foods:
Beef and Lamb
Cashew nuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds (you can snack on these or throw them in a salad)
There is one other food that your prostate will love. Check out the next post to find out what it is.
