Prostate problems are common in men over 50 years old and the most common condition is called benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). The prostate gland enlarges, constricting the urethra and making urination difficult. Surgery may be needed to correct the problem but increasingly, nutrition is being used as a first line of attack. If prostate problems start to occur, it is essential that you first consult a doctor in case prostate cancer is the cause, before trying dietary supplements.

Diet and lifestyle

Alcohol, smoking and caffeine are all best avoided as these just add to the burden of detoxification on the body. The diet should be low in saturated fat eg. red meat, full-fat dairy foods, pastry, cakes and biscuits. Sugar is best avoided. Ensure a good supply of essential fatty acids (oily fish, seeds and nuts). A wholefood diet is best, eating ample raw fruit and vegetables, (especially tomatoes).
