Prostate Problems

The prostate gland, or the seminal vesicle, sits deep in the groin between the rectum and the base of the penis. It is important for reproduction as it’s involved in semen production. The urethra (a tube that allows urine to pass out of the body) runs through the centre of the prostate, from the penis to the bladder, and allows for the flow and release of urine from the body. Prostate health is important, and issues with the prostate may affect sexual function or urination.

What are prostate issues?

 

The prostate is prone to 3 main conditions:

 
  1. Prostatitis - an inflammation of the prostate.

  2. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) - an age related enlargement of the prostate gland.

  3. Prostate Cancer - an issue where cancerous cells form inside the prostate & can move from the prostate gland to affect other parts of the body.

 

What are the early warning signs of prostate problems?

 

Signs of prostate problems may include stop/start issues when urinating or a painful burning sensation during urination. Loss of bladder control may also occur, and blood may be present in the patient's urine. Issues with the prostate can also affect sexual performance too, because it can contribute to erectile dysfunction.

 

How can I improve my prostate health?

 

Diet is important, and a patient can keep their prostate healthy by consuming more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and more fatty fish, such as salmon, trout, mackerel, swordfish and herring, which all contain beneficial omega 3 fatty acids. You should aim to limit your dairy intake too, to two daily servings, and cut back on processed meats such as bacon and salami. Maintaining a healthy weight and regular exercise are also essential for prostate health, as resistance training for example, helps improve muscular strength and should improve a patient’s quality of life.

 

Are prostate supplements worth taking?


A prostate supplement, like A.Vogel Prostasan Saw Palmetto or Biocare Saw Palmetto Complex, may help to prevent or lessen the symptoms associated with prostate issues. They include ingredients, which are designed to support the healthy functions of the urinary tract, and of course, the prostate gland.
