5 Tips for Better Prostate Health 

November 10, 2022

The prostate is a small gland that is part of the male reproductive system, which nourishes and protects the sperm. There are a few issues that men may experience at some point of their lives, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia, enlarged prostate, prostatitis, or cancer. Let’s take a look at what methods can help us protect the prostate.


Drink more water


Water is essential for overall health, prostate included. For prostate health, staying hydrated is important, as regular urination is beneficial for the organ. Do make it a habit to drink plenty of water to dilute your urine, so that you can prevent excessively concentrated urine from causing additional stimulation to the prostate. Regular urination can help clean up the prostate as bacteria is excreted through urine.


Have healthy sex life
Based on some studies1, there is some evidence that men who ejaculate more often could have a lower chance of having prostate cancer. One possible reason for this is because frequent ejaculation may help to clear potentially cancer-causing substances from the prostate. 


Stay active, move around
It can be easy to lapse into a sedentary lifestyle, especially if you are working an office job. However, this can raise a red flag for prostate health. For example, sitting for long periods of time can put pressure on the prostate gland, causing it to get irritated over time. According to some studies2, a drop in activity levels can cause blood levels of a certain protein linked to prostate cancer to spike. Do get up and move around every hour or so – this will also benefit your health in many other ways. 


Take spicy food in moderation
Spicy food can be the perfect indulgence for many, but it is important to note that in general, such food can irritate various organs in the body. It can irritate the bladder and prostate in some men, causing urinary problems associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
