5 Tips For A Healthy Prostate
Around age 40, most men start to experience the side effects of an aging prostate. Prostate problems—such getting up all night to go, dribbling or leaking, or feeling like you have a “bloated bladder”—can wreak havoc on your daily life.
The good news is that with some simple lifestyle changes, you can boost your prostate health and relieve those annoying, uncomfortable symptoms.
Here are 5 tips to maintain a healthy prostate as you age:
1) Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and vegetables contain many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber to keep you and your prostate healthy. Try to eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Choose fruits and vegetables in an array of colors to get a good variety of nutrients.
2) Limit Red Meat and Dairy
Eating a lot of red meat, processed foods, and whole-fat dairy is bad for your prostate. Aim to eat less beef, cold cuts, pork, hot dogs, and sausages. As for dairy, avoid full-fat milks, cheeses, butters and yogurts. Here are some healthier alternatives:
- Lean poultry, like skinless turkey or chicken
- Fish, such as salmon, trout or mackerel
- Beans and legumes, like chickpeas, lentils or kidney beans
- Tofu and tempeh
- Nuts and nut butters
- Non-dairy milk, such as almond or cashew milk
3) Take A Prostate Supplement
In addition to a healthy diet, it’s important to take a daily prostate supplement. Full Potency Prostate provides 4 key ingredients that are clinically validated to promote healthy prostate function, reduce urinary frequency, and improve urinary flow.
4) Stay Active
Regular exercise is key to reducing prostate problems and urinary tract discomfort. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. Find an activity you enjoy, whether that’s walking, running, swimming, bicycling, or weightlifting, so that you stick with it.
5) Quit Smoking
It’s never too late to quit smoking. Smoking hurts your health in so many ways, including your prostate. Studies show that smoking may increase the risk and severity of prostate problems. It exposes your body to carcinogens and affects your hormones.
By following these tips, you can promote better prostate health and support your overall wellness.
