Food suitable for prostate diseases
The main foods that are beneficial to prevent or improve prostate diseases include
- Food rich in vitamin E: Vitamin E, among other properties, besides
anti-inflammatory properties, well suited to prevent inflammation of the prostate,
has antitumor properties capable of inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, especially
breast cancer, colon and prostate. Eating foods rich in this vitamin is an effective
protection against these cancers. Foods particularly rich in vitamin E are:
- Green leafy vegetables: They are one of the groups of foods rich in this vitamin.
-Nuts: like vegetables, nuts are rich in vitamin E and can be very useful in the diet of
- The wheat germ.
- Soy and other legumes: The reason why the cultures of Japan or China have less
percentage of these diseases lies in its high consumption of this legume. Soy is a
powerful anti-cancer. Studies in Japan, where people usually eat lots of soup, usually
soybean, showed that a daily intake of a bowl of soup reduced to 1 / 3 the chance of
developing stomach cancer. Also has been found to eat soy or derivatives stops the
growth of cancer cells, especially breast, prostate, uterus and colon.
The reason for this property is due to the existence of some components called
isoflavones and lignans, which have the power to reduce the male hormones that are
directly responsible for benign prostatic hyperplasia or noncancerous growth of the
prostate and to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in this organ.
It is therefore highly desirable to include soy as a staple food. Remember that in
addition to the vegetable, we have a whole arsenal of products derived from
soybeans, which have the same properties, will enable us to prepare various culinary
dishes while we eating the same vegetable. Among these mention: tofu or soy
cheese, soy milk or soy meat.
Within the group of legumes, soybeans are the most recommended, but it should be
noted that consumption of other legumes such as peas or beans, benefit the
management or amelioration of these diseases, as most members of this group
foods contain a greater or lesser extent similar components.
- Alfalfa and alfalfa sprouts: It has been found that another very important
legumes in the control of diseases of the prostate is alfalfa. If traditionally used this
plant for animal feed, is now believed that its consumption, especially of sprouted
sprouts can be very interesting in preventing prostate cancer. Its properties are due
to the presence of two isoflavones, called genistein and daidzein, which prevent the
formation of cancerous tumors in this organ.
- Pumpkin: Pumpkin, by their content of carotenoids, is another of the
recommended foods. The properties of carotenoids are very broad. Among all of
them deserve special attention their ability to inhibit cancer development. It has been
shown the importance of consumption of green leafy foods such as leeks or pumpkin
in preventing prostate cancer in its ability to prevent an increase in prostate condition
called benign prostatic hyperplasia, a condition that can occur in men usually after 50
years and, while not as serious as cancer, is a very serious discomfort when urinating
- Cabbage: Cabbage and members of the cabbage family, Brussels, cabbage
cauliflower, broccoli, turnips, rich in vitamin C, cysteine, and sulforrafano
glucosinolates, are more foods that protect us against cancers (mainly breast lung,
stomach, ovary, prostate and colon) would be appropriate to eat any of these
vegetables once a day. The antioxidant properties of this family are considered very
interesting for the prevention of many physical illnesses, resulting particularly suitable
in the health care of the arteries and heart. Among the most potent antioxidant of
this plant is alpha lipoic acid, a component that for some time was considered more
of a vitamin B group, whose antioxidant properties have been highly praised in recent
- Tomatoes: For their lycopene content and glutathione, two potent anti-cancer, eat
plenty of tomato salad provided.
- Oily fish: Members of oily fish (mackerel, sardines, tuna, salmon, etc.) should
enter as a routine especially in people with prostate problems, so they should eat at
least three times a week. These foods are rich in omega 3. The inclusion of foods or
supplements rich in this component protects against the occurrence of certain
cancers especially colon cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer. They can also
shrink tumors by preventing the growth of cancer cells or prevent them, by
metastasis, recurrence elsewhere in the body.
- Foods rich in zinc: Zinc inhibits the production of dihydrotestosterone whose
elevated levels are associated with increased prostate noncancerous An increase of
zinc in prostate cells appears to be effective in the prevention and treatment of
Enlarged Prostate Problems. Are rich in zinc celery, asparagus, borage, figs, potatoes,
peanuts, eggplant, cashews, sunflower, onions, beans, lentils, peaches, almonds,
radishes, pears, papayas, whole grains, etc.. People who do not want to make a
vegetarian-only system can opt for the consumption of seafood (especially oysters),
liver and eggs are animal foods rich in zinc.
- Water In abundance: For the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia intake is
advised pints at least of water a day. At first the large intake of water can worsen
symptoms of the disease but, when the bladder is adapted, the sick can increase
urination and not feel so bad when wet.
Food detrimental to prostate diseases
The following foods are not appropriate in the diet of people with these diseases:
Foods rich in saturated fats: There seems to be a proven direct link between fatty
foods of animal origin and increased prostate cancers. Also these foods may be
responsible for inflammation of benign prostatic be prudent and are recommended to
eat less of these foods in prostate patients.
Alcohol: It is believed that consumption of alcohol may increase the likelihood of
Stimulants: The use of artificial or natural stimulants such as coffee, chocolate or
cocoa and cola, is not suitable for prostate patients Instead, to increase urination, we
recommend the use of medicinal plants most suitable.
