10 Steps to Protecting your Prostate Naturally:

    -Choose Foods that Reduce Inflammation: These foods are largely found in the Mediterranean Diet. This includes oily fish (rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids), lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and foods that provide healthy fats such as avocados, olives, nuts, and seeds.
      -Avoid Foods that Cause Inflammation: Spicy foods can worsen symptoms of prostatitis, while processed foods, artificial sweeteners, sugary foods, dairy products, red meat, and fried foods can also induce damaging inflammation.

        -Just Drink Water: This is the simplest solution when it comes to fluids. Alcohol, soda and energy drinks contain processes sugars and other damaging properties, especially alcohol.

        -Lose the Extra Weight: This pertains especially to men who are overweight or obese. Studies have shown that obesity increases the risk of lower urinary tract symptoms and enlarged prostate.

          -Choose Plant Based Protein: Many dieticians have recommended a switch from animal to plant based protein. Animal protein typically comes from red meat and dairy products both of which can have damaging health effects. Plant protein sources include beans, amaranth and quinoa, seeds, lentils and fermented soy.
            -Reduce Stress Levels: The body deals with stress by raising levels of certain hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. Unfortunately, when stress is chronic, cortisol levels remain high, which in turn elevates inflammation. The prostate can be subject to inflammation from high stress.[2]
              -Enjoy Red Fruits and Vegetables: Tomatoes, watermelon, and other red foods owe their bright color to a powerful antioxidant called lycopene. Men who consume this fruit and tomato-based products have a lower risk for prostate problems because of its strong antioxidant support.
                -Consume lots of Fish: Fatty acid, known as omega-3, may help reduce your risk of developing prostate issues. Omega-3 is found in certain fish including sardines, tuna, mackerel, trout, and salmon. Fatty acids are import in fighting free radicals and are another essential component to the amazing Mediterranean Diet.
                  -Soybeans and Tea: A nutrient called isoflavones in soybeans and tea have been linked to prostate health and anti-inflammation. Isoflavones are most commonly found in chickpeas, tofu, lentils, alfalfa sprouts and green tea.
                    -Stop Smoking: It’s no surprise that smoking can affect all areas of your body including your prostate. It’s recommended to cut down on smoking and quitting altogether if possible. [3]
