Prostate health is a central concern for Canadians of all ages. And with good reason, since this gland plays a crucial role in male wellness. What are its functions? What health problems are likely to affect it? And how can they be prevented?
Here are a few tips to help you take good care of your prostate, naturally.
The prostate: an essential gland
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located beneath the bladder, around the urethra, the tube through which urine passes. Part of the male reproductive system, it produces the seminal fluid that both nourishes and transports sperm. The prostate is therefore an essential component of male fertility.
In addition to its role in reproduction, the prostate is also involved in the urinary system. Poor prostate health can therefore lead to difficulties in this area. As the prostate enlarges, the pressure it exerts on the urethra can prevent you from emptying your bladder completely.
Hyperplasia, prostatitis, prostate cancer: the most common disorders
With age, the prostate tends to enlarge. This phenomenon is called “benign prostatic hyperplasia” (BPH) and is very common in men aged 60 and over. This enlargement can lead to more frequent visits to the bathroom, urinary retention, or a weaker urine flow.
BPH is not the only condition affecting the prostate. Prostatitis is an inflammation that can cause pelvic pain, fever, and difficulties with urination. This common problem can reduce a men’s quality of life. Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce inflammation, such as homeopathy and physical activity.
Prostate cancer is a fairly common cancer and one of the main health concerns for men. In Canada, it is estimated that 1 in 8 men will develop prostate cancer. It can develop slowly, and often shows no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage. That’s why it’s so important to see your doctor regularly for a general checkup and screening, especially after the age of 50.
How can I keep my prostate healthy?
To prevent the emergence of prostate-related health problems, physical activity is a must. In fact, the more active men are, the lower their risk of developing BPH. Whether low, medium, or high intensity, exercise is beneficial. If you’re rather sedentary, even walking will help!
Among the benefits of physical activity, you should know that it produces anti-inflammatory substances that can reduce tissue damage (to the prostate and other organs). It can also activate certain proteins to suppress harmful cells. In the same vein, tobacco and alcohol are pro-inflammatory substances and should be avoided.
In addition to staying active, it’s important to eat well. Foods rich in antioxidants, such as carrots and watermelon, and omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, should be on the menu. A meta-analysis concluded that there is a link between eating carrots and a reduced risk of developing prostate cancer.
Zinc deficiency can also have an impact on prostate health, particularly BPH. The best way to prevent zinc deficiency is to eat a varied and nutritious diet, including whole grains, nuts, beans, and eggs.
Homeopathy for the prostate
Certain plants have anti-inflammatory properties that help to keep your prostate healthy in a natural way. These properties are found in the composition of Prosta-Health+ pellets.

Prosta-Health ingredients, such as sabal serrulata, help reduce urinary disorders associated with BPH. Solidago virgaurea and benzoicum acidum are excellent for helping to relieve the inflammation associated with urinary difficulties. Colchicine is also an ingredient in Prosta-Health+. This age-old gout treatment is also useful in helping to prevent cancer, and is now being used in medical research.
Prostate health is crucial to men’s quality of life. By adopting a healthy lifestyle and undergoing regular medical check-ups, Canadians can prevent the onset of certain related disorders and enjoy a life of full health.
