The prostate is an important part of a man’s body and is about the size of a walnut, located below the bladder and in front of the rectum (oh yeah and only men have it). So what’s so important about the prostate?. Well for starters it is important for sexual health so if you’re having problems with your prostate you might want to look into that (don’t worry I’ve got some tips right here). Ultimately maintaining good prostate health stems from developing good habits; eating the proper foods and drinking lots of water, have you ever been constipated(embarrassing I know). when there is a difficulty in passing stool or when your stool becomes hard it rubs against the prostate because of where it is located, this in turn causes it to become inflamed and increases your risk of developing prostatitis which is the inflammation of the prostate. This shows the importance of eating fruits and foods with fiber along with drinking water because it gives your waste bulk and moves it more quickly out of the body. There are some fruits in fact that are said to be great for prostate health such as Pomegranate. this fruit contains nutrients that are good for your prostate. Vegetables are also your friend, eat as much as possible.Reduce your consumption of processed meats; they have been proven to be carcinogenic and lower your sodium intake by eating less salt, most people don’t recognize how much salt they put in their system avoid eating too much fast food which is jam packed with the stuff. Watch for the symptoms of prostate problems, things such as blood in your urine, pain while having sex and also erectile function. Stay hydrated, hydration flushes your system and softens your stool, this way when it passes the prostate it won’t rub against it causing inflammation. Men who are constipated tend to have prostate problems so you should also exercise at least two to three times a week. Exercise improves the health of your bowels. this in turn allows waste to pass through the body at a much faster rate. when you exercise what you are doing is using up the nutrients so your body can extract the waste. people who are not healthy or don’t exercise allow toxins to build up in their system by not exercising.
I have personally had prostate health problems, prostatitis to be exact and I know it can be a bit embarrassing but after practicing all the points I mentioned above I have never had any more issues with my prostate health.
