Herb for Prostate Health -- which herbs can help you achieve optimal prostate health?

First and foremost, always make sure any prostate symptoms are not due to Prostate Cancer by consulting with your doctor. Left untreated or treated improperly, benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH can lead to more serious complications, such as an infection. Doctors are working to better understand herbal therapies so that they can help you make informed decisions about your health and wellness. Published studies have revealed that the vitamins, minerals and natural prostate herbs available today most reputable anti-aging centers can dramatically shrink the prostate and improve urinary performance in men without many side effects.

Much of the research on prostate cancer prevention focuses on nutrition. Key factors include fat, vegetables, and fish. Prostate cancer rates vary greatly from one country to another, but the highest rates appear in countries where people tend to eat a lot of fat. The number of prostate cancer deaths in a given country rise in direct proportion to the average total calories from fat in that country's typical diet. In contrast, studies link a diet high in vegetables to a lower risk of prostate cancer. One study found that men who ate 28 or more servings of vegetables each week had lower rates of prostate cancer compared to men who ate less than 14 servings. Fish are also linked to a lower risk of prostate cancer. In one study, prostate cancer was 2-3 times more common in men who ate no fish as in men who ate moderate to large amounts of fish. Types of fish that are rich in the fatty acids that protect against prostate cancer and other illnesses include salmon, herring and mackerel.

Obesity and prostate cancer

Researchers have yet to establish a direct link between obesity and the incidence of prostate cancer. Obesity however might affect levels of hormones related to prostate cancer risk.  Remember, it has been proven that the higher calories you intake, the higher your chance of prostate cancer.

Guidelines for Preventing Prostate Cancer:

  • Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
  • Reduce intake of saturated fat and cholesterol.
  • Limit sweets and salt.
  • Drink alcoholic beverages in moderation, if at all.
  • Eat moderate-sized portions and control calories.

 An herb for prostate health is a very good idea.  Prostate herbs are especially important once you reach over the age of 40 to 45.  Remember, be nice to your prostate and it will be nice to you.
