A properly functioning prostate gland is key to a man's urinary, reproductive and sexual health. The prostate, wrapped around the urethra which transports urine from the bladder to the penis, develops an alkaline fluid that is a large component of semen. By the time a man reaches the age of 50, prostate health should become a priority because enlargement of this walnut-sized gland during the aging process is often the most common problem that creates other medical issues, such as urinary frequency, incontinence, and in severe cases, cancer.
If the prostate becomes enlarged, a medical condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia, the normal functioning of the urethra is affected, leading to any number of urinary tract issues, including weak stream of urine, dribbling and leaking urine, and frequent urgency of urination. Inflammation of the prostate gland is another issue that can affect prostate health, leading to back ache and painful urination.
Beyond keeping physically active and eating a well-balanced diet, there are additional nutrients that should be included in the diet to help encourage good prostate health. Beta sitosterol is a plant and fruit ester that discourages inflammation of the prostate gland. Other vitamins and minerals essential for maintaining the health of the prostate gland include vitamin D, manganese, selenium and zinc.
It is also essential that the diet contain a healthy amount of omega-3 fatty acids and complex carbohydrates. Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and folic acid have also proven effective at lowering the risk of prostate cancer, especially when combined with Vitamin C. At least 2 mg daily of lycopene, along with Vitamin E and selenium, round out the nutritional supplements that have proven valuable in maintaining the good health of the prostate gland, no matter what a man's age.
