What can I eat to reduce risk of developing
prostate cancer? This is one of the most common questions
physicians hear from men concerned about prostate health. Don’t miss this video to get an answer! Hey everyone, aqila here! In this video I will talk about 5 foods that may
help to keep a healthy prostate. There’s no definitive evidence that good nutrition
can prevent prostate problems but eating a healthy balanced diet may reduce
your risk. Building a meal and snack around veggies and
fruit is a smart idea for health in general and particularly a healthy prostate. And here are 5 Foods For Prostate Health: 1. Brazil Nuts. The first food that may help to keep a healthy
prostate is Brazil Nuts. Of all the different types of nuts these natives of
South America are an especially rich source of the mineral
selenium which is important for prostate health. In fact just one ounce of Brazil nuts can contain
as much as ten times the RDA for selenium. Research has shown that selenium intake is
associated with a reduced risk of prostate
cancer. The Brazil nut tree grows in Brazil, Venezuela,
Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia. The Brazil nut are also a very good source of
zinc another mineral that plays an important role
in maintaining a healthy prostate. An addition Brazil nuts contain all the amino
acids necessary to qualify as a complete protein and the nuts are also a good source of
magnesium and thiamine. 2. Broccoli. The second food that may help to keep a
healthy prostate is Broccoli. Broccoli is a source of some very critical
nutritional benefits that are not listed on a
nutrition label. As a member of the cruciferous family, which is also populated by cauliflower
Brussel sprouts, kale, and many other
vegetables, broccoli contains high amounts of the
phytonutrients sulforaphane and the indoles
both of which have anticancer properties. Sulforaphane enhances the activity of the body’s
detoxification enzymes, which helps to eliminate potentially cancer
causing elements more quickly. A study published in Cancer discovered that
indole-3-carbinol which occurs naturally in
broccoli and its cousins, suppressed the growth of prostate cancer cells
and also inhibited the production of prostate
specific antigen (PSA). Investigators with the Prostate, Lung,
Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial
also found that eating broccoli more than once a week
could reduce the likelihood of developing stage
III and IV prostate cancer by 45 %. The most healthful way to enjoy broccoli
is lightly steamed or sautéed for no more than
five minutes. If the vegetable is cooked longer than that
the anticancer abilities of its phytonutrients fade. Before you begin cooking, however,
cut the florets into pieces and let them sit for
about five minutes. This allows the vegetable’s cancer preventing
elements to form before you cook it, because heat denatures the enzyme that allows
the process to occur. To boost the healthful value of your meal add
virgin olive oil and fresh garlic and cayenne. 3. Green Tea. The third food that may help to keep a healthy
prostate is green tea. Before you continue watching this video don’t
forget to subscribe this channel to see other
useful health videos. The medicinal powers of green tea are attributed
to antioxidant compounds called catechins, a type of polyphenol that has been shown to
destroy certain bacteria and viruses, boost the
immune system, and fight several forms of cancer including
prostate cancer. Although there are several different kinds of
catechins experts have identified epigallocatechin gallate as the most potent. Research has shown that green tea polyphenols
can significantly lower the levels of PSA and two
biomarkers for prostate cancer hepatocyte growth factor and vascular
endothelial growth factor. Green tea catechins also may help men who
have pre-cancerous prostate lesions, that also known as prostate intraepithelial
neoplasia (PIN), a condition that signals a high risk of developing
“full-on” prostate cancer. Studies show that men with PIN who took
catechins daily had a significantly lower risk of
developing prostate cancer and also a reduced risk of lower urinary tract
symptoms which makes catechins helpful, in treating symptoms of benign prostatic
hypertrophy. Study after study has demonstrated that men. who drink at least three cups of green tea each
day have a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Catechins also work to repair damaged DNA,
that might otherwise trigger cancer growth as well as hinder the actions of an enzyme
called COX-2, which is involved in the process of
prostate cancer. 4. Tomatoes. Another food that may help to keep a healthy
prostate is Tomatoes. The benefits of tomatoes in relation to prostate
health have been known for years, with various studies around the world
corroborating their effectiveness in controlling
the rapid growth of the prostate during a man’s later years It’s all because tomatoes are rich in the nutrient
lycopene which incidentally is what makes them
red. We knew lycopene seems to slow down the
development of prostate cancer, but now, it seems it can slow down the
enlargement of the prostate and development of
BPH as well. Tomatoes are a popular food as well as a
superior source of lycopene a phytonutrient, or more specifically a carotenoid one of a group
of yellow, orange, and red pigments found in
plants. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant that has proven
itself in study after study to have properties that enhance prostate health. Although fresh tomatoes are nutritious their
lycopene antioxidant potency increases when
they are processed. Processing breaks down the cell walls of
tomatoes which makes the lycopene more
accessible to the body. Thus tomato paste, soup, and juice, offer more
antioxidant protection for the prostate than do
fresh tomatoes. The results of many studies show that
processed tomato products really enhance
prostate health. Researchers from Germany’s University of Bonn
say, that just one serving of tomatoes, or a tomato product every day could protect
against the DNA damage that can set the stage
for prostate cancer. Tomatoes are also good for managing benign
prostatic hypertrophy and keeping PSA levels
down. Because processed tomato products are
available year round it is easy to make them a
part of your diet. Something as simple as a glass of tomato juice
daily can be helpful in promoting prostate health. 5. Pumpkin Seeds. The last food that may help to keep a healthy
prostate is Pumpkin Seeds. Pumpkin seeds offer some unique health
benefits for the prostate especially for men who
have benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). This condition which involves enlargement of the
prostate gland, commonly affects men 50 years and older. One thing that contributes to BPH is
overstimulation of the prostate cells by
testosteron and another hormone dihydrotestosterone The oil in pumpkin seeds can help prevent the
hormones from triggering multiplication of
prostate cells. Pumpkin seed oil also contains carotenoids and
omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that men who have higher
levels of carotenoids in their diet have a reduced
risk of BPH. Another nutrient found in pumpkin seeds is zinc
which is associated with prostate health. A recent study from the Linus Pauling Institute
suggests that zinc may protect against the
development of prostate cancer. So far, studies of the impact of zinc on BPH
have had mixed results. And don’t forget to stay active.
In addition to eating a healthy diet you should
stay active. Regular exercise pares down your risk of
developing some deadly problems, including heart disease, stroke, and certain
types of cancer. And although relatively few studies have directly
assessed the impact of exercise on prostate
health, those that have been done have concluded for
the most part that exercise is beneficial. Based on questionnaires completed by more
than 30,000 men, researchers found an inverse relationship between physical activity, and BPH symptoms Simply put, men who were more physically
active were less likely to suffer from BPH. Even low to moderate-intensity physical activity, such as walking regularly at a moderate pace
yielded benefits. Researchers also examined the relationship
between ED and exercise. They found that men who ran for an hour and a
half or did three hours of rigorous outdoor work
per week were 20% less likely to develop ED than those
who didn’t exercise at all. More physical activity conferred a greater
benefit. Interestingly regardless of the level of exercise
men who were overweight or obese had a greater risk of ED than men with an ideal
body mass index or BMI. Eating the right foods can promote to keep a
healthy prostate. Thank you for watching “5 Foods For Prostate
