Tips for taking care of your prostate naturally

Prostate health is a central concern for Canadians of all ages. And for good reason! This gland plays a crucial role in male well-being. What are its functions? What health conditions are likely to affect it? How to prevent them?

Here are some tips that will help you take good care of your prostate, naturally.

The prostate: a gland that performs essential functions

The prostate is a gland the size of a walnut located under the bladder, around the urethra (the tube through which urine passes). It is part of the male reproductive system and produces seminal fluid, which nourishes and transports sperm. The prostate is therefore an essential component of male fertility .

In addition to being part of the reproductive system, the prostate plays a role in the urinary system . For this reason, prostate problems can lead to urinary difficulties. Specifically, when the prostate enlarges, the pressure it puts on the urethra can prevent the bladder from emptying completely.

Hypertrophy, prostatitis, prostate cancer: the most common disorders

With age, the prostate tends to enlarge. This phenomenon called “ benign prostatic hyperplasia ” (BPH) is very common among men aged 60 or over. An enlarged prostate can increase the frequency of visits to the toilet, cause urinary retention or make the urine stream weaker.

BPH is not the only prostate condition. Prostatitis is an inflammation that can cause pelvic pain , fever and difficulty urinating. This common problem can affect the quality of life of men. Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce inflammation, such as homeopathy and physical activity.

THE Prostate cancer is a fairly common cancer and therefore one of the main sources of concern for men's health. The prevalence of this cancer in Canada is 17.8% . Prostate cancer grows slowly; Often , people with the disease have no symptoms until the disease reaches an advanced stage. This is why regular health check-ups and screening are so important, especially from the age of 50.

How to keep your prostate healthy

Physical activity

To prevent prostate-related health problems, physical activity is essential. Indeed, the more active men are, the lower the risk of BPH . Whether low, medium or high intensity, exercise has benefits. If you are more sedentary, even walking will help you!

Among the benefits of physical activity, you should know that it produces anti-inflammatory substances which can reduce tissue damage (of the prostate, but also of other organs). It can also activate certain proteins to kill harmful cells . Along the same lines, be aware that tobacco and alcohol are pro-inflammatory substances and should therefore be avoided.

Healthy eating

In addition to staying active, it is important to eat well. Foods rich in antioxidants, such as carrots and watermelon, or omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, should be on the menu. A meta-analysis concluded that there is a link between the consumption of carrots and a reduced risk of prostate cancer.

Zinc deficiency can also impact prostate health, including BPH. The best way to prevent such a deficiency is to adopt a varied and nutritious diet including, among others, whole grains, nuts, legumes, and eggs.

Homeopathy for the prostate

Certain plants have anti-inflammatory properties that help maintain prostate health naturally. These properties are found in the composition of Prosta-Santé+ granules .

Prosta-Santé+: the natural product for the prostate

Offered in a format that allows you to carry it anywhere, this homeopathic product specially designed to relieve urinary problems and protect prostate health can be taken three times a day. Simply melt the granules under the tongue.

The ingredients of Prosta-Santé+, including sabal serrulata , act on urinary disorders linked to BPH. Solidago virgaurea and benzoicum acidum , on the other hand, are excellent for helping to relieve inflammation related to urinary difficulties. Prosta-Santé+ also contains colchicine, a substance used for millennia to fight gout and help prevent cancer. Interestingly, colchicine is now the subject of medical research .

Prostate health is crucial to men's quality of life. By adopting a healthy lifestyle and seeing their doctor regularly, Canadians can prevent the onset of certain prostate-related disorders and enjoy a healthy life.
