Saw palmetto is a common ingredient in many men’s health multivitamins and supplements. Saw palmetto holds many other health benefits, but is incredibly popular for its benefits for men’s health. It has retained its traditional use of treating symptoms of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate), especially urinary dysfunction and overactive bladders. Saw palmetto has been used for centuries for male urinary tract health and there is growing research to conclude that it supports the male urological system and can greatly improve and relieve urinary tract symptoms.
It appears that BPH may be related to the prostate’s long term exposure to the strong levels of androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT). To gain DHT, testosterone must be converted by an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase; however saw palmetto research shows that it acts as an effective inhibitor of the activity of this enzyme in the prostate gland tissues that will help to prevent tissue growth.
Pumpkin seeds have long been valued as an important natural food for men’s health. Not only are they associated with prostate cancer, but they are also related to treating BPH (enlarged prostate). Their benefits to men’s health are down to their high zinc content, which is an important mineral for general prostate health as this is where it is found in its highest concentrations. Apart from zinc, pumpkin seeds also contain other beneficial nutrients like phytosterols and lignans that are believed to have positive effects on reducing BPH symptoms and maintaining prostate health.
Tomatoes already have a host of associated health benefits and alongside being jam-packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties another benefit can be added to their list. They have recently been discovered as a great food for maintaining prostate health. Tomatoes are well-known for being jam-packed with antioxidants and one in particular called lycopene has been found the reduce age-related enlargement of the prostate and relieving bladder pressure. By reducing prostate enlargement, pressure on the bladder is also relieved, which is particularly useful to BPH sufferers who are experiencing frequent episodes of urination, especially throughout the night (nocturia). Researchers have found that regularly eating tomatoes could cut night time urination by more than a third, while substantially improving overall bladder function. This is suggested to be down to lycopene’s chemical structure, which is similar to finasteride, the main drug used to treat BPH.
Not only are tomatoes associated with reducing enlarged prostates and relieving urinary symptoms of BPH, but they are also believed to have beneficial effects on preventing prostate cancer and slowing down its development in those already diagnosed.
