6 Essential Nutrients for Good Prostate Health

Most males go through the early part of their lives thinking very little about their prostate. However, by the time men reach their 40s most of us begin to experience prostate health problems. In fact, studies show that the risk of cancer to this organ increases almost exponentially with age. This is why supplements to support prostate health are so important to men. But which vitamins and minerals truly do support prostate health and how do the ones that do nourish the prostate work? Here are few of the more promising prostate aiding supplements on the market including our own DIM (Di-Indolyl Methane). •

Saw palmetto: Saw palmetto a palm-like plant that grows in the southeast United States. The berries from this plant are used to make capsules which are then sold as supplements. Studies have shown that saw palmetto reduces the size of enlarged prostates and relieves urinary problems in men.

DIM (Di-Indolyl Methane): DIM is a phytonutrient found in broccoli, and cauliflower. It has been shown to help in the management of an enlarged prostate and to help improve overall urinary health.


Lycopene: Lycopene is a powerful anti-oxidant that in its natural form is found in tomatoes. It has been shown to significantly lower the risk of developing prostate cancer.

Omega-3 fatty acids: Research has shown that omega-3 fats modulate prostate cancer development. This is probably because of the antiinflammatory effect these acids have on tumor growth. Experts recommend that less healthy fats be replaced by omega-3 fats.

Vitamin K2: This vitamin has been shown to help patients with advanced prostate cancer. Foods high in K2 include hard cheese, chicken liver, salami and egg yolks.

Vitamin C and Vitamin B6: These two vitamins are believed to make urination easier and prevent swelling of the prostate.

In short, as we age, men often develop prostate problems due to a number of reasons including poor diet. However, prostate health does not have to be something that concerns mainly men over 40. This gland is too important to ignore especially when many natural health products are available to help support it. Look into these nutrients and foods as a way to give this important gland the support it needs. https://capefearnaturalsblog.wordpress.com/2018/01/19/6-essentialnutrients-for-good-prostate-health/ Address: Cape Fear Naturals, LLC 5416 Oleander Dr Wilmington North Carolina USA 28403 Phone: (910) 319-7392
