Prostate Health Through Diet
Although treatment for diagnosed prostate conditions should always be consulted with your medical doctor, there are some changes that you can make to your diet and lifestyle that can help to prevent poor prostate health and even reduce some symptoms associated prostate conditions. Prostate support supplements or anti-inflammatories such as turmeric, fish oil omega-3s, and stinging nettle can be very effective for this. Also, adding a good number of antioxidants such as lycopene and Vitamin E can be beneficial. Finally, maintaining healthy levels of trace minerals such as zinc and magnesium can further improve the health and functionality of your prostate.
Vigor and Vitality
As men age, it is natural to notice a gradual decrease in sex drive, arousal, and energy in general. The loss of “libido” can lead to frustration and depression but can also be caused by certain medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes which can reduce blood flow. Medications, low testosterone, lack of sleep, stress, alcohol and drug use, can all lead to diminished sex drive. Making changes in your current diet by adding fruits and vegetables, and foods rich in magnesium can increase hormone production. Natural herbs and ingredients such as horny goat weed, maca root powder, and panax ginseng root powder can also lead to higher levels of vigor and vitality. Consulting a medical professional and seeking treatment is always the best course of action.
Multivitamin and Minerals
Following a proper diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy oils is key to absorbing the vitamins and minerals that are essential to fuel the body. Data from the International Food Council Foundation suggests that fewer than half of men over the age of 50 follow a diet that provides all the essential nutrients needed. Medical experts say that a basic multivitamin could act as an insurance policy for men who have nutritional gaps in their diet. Finally, the antioxidant properties found in some multivitamins will benefit overall health.
