Enlarged Prostate Symptoms

Prostate Vitamins

The prostate's function is to provide a portion of the seminal fluid for the nourishment and delivery of sperm down through the uthera. It is located immediately below the bladder and encircles the urethra, which is the pathway for urine from the bladder to outside the body.

Prostate vitamins and nutritional recommendations for benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH) which is the medical term for enlarged prostate symptoms, includes a healthy low-fat, high-fiber diet, vitamin and mineral supplements and essential fatty acids such as flaxseed oil.

Prostate vitamins and supplements are important but are secondary to diet. Eating a natural whole-food diet based on whole grains and unrefined low fat foods can protect against and actually eliminate prostate enlargement, prostate infection and even prostate cancer.

Beta-sitosterol is probably the most important of the prostate vitamins and supplements recommended for the well being of the prostate. Beta-sitosterol is a natural component of many grains and vegetables. It is actually a combination of other sterols including campesterol, and stigmasterol
