Prostate enlargement is a frequent problem in males, and it works like this: once waste items are filtered and urine is formed, the urine is directed to the urethra for elimination from the body. The flow of urine, on the other hand, maybe obstructed if the prostate enlarges and the prostate cells multiply over time, causing an enlargement that exerts pressure on the urethra. As a result, the urethra narrows, requiring more strong contractions to push urine through the body, perhaps causing the bladder muscle to thicken and become sensitive.
Because of this heightened sensitivity, the bladder muscle can readily contract even when it only contains a tiny amount of pee, resulting in the desire to urinate frequently. The bladder muscle eventually becomes unable to cope with the continual constriction of the urethra, resulting in urine remaining in the bladder and not being properly evacuated. Prostate enlargement, also known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), is stated to have happened at this point. One of the most noticeable aspects of this ailment is that the risk of having it increases with age, with the average age of start in men being slightly over 40 years old.
It's easy to detect two early indications of prostate enlargement at its inception, based on a relatively simple description of how prostate enlargement grows and works in men: peeing frequently even when the bladder contains only a tiny amount of urine, and failure to empty the bladder. Other signs of an enlarged prostate, on the other hand, include:
1. . Increased frequency of urination at night (nocturia);
2. Difficulty starting urination;
3. Weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts;
4. Dribbling at the end of urination;
5. Inability to urinate;
6. Blood in the urine.
Other medical disorders, such as prostate inflammation, urinary tract infection, constriction of the urethra, bladder or kidney stones, and so on, can cause symptoms that are similar to those of an enlarged prostate. Despite the doom and gloom, there is some good news: some diets high in vitamins and minerals can help to keep the prostate healthy and reduce the chance of prostate enlargement. These foods can help reduce prostate enlargement, and they're listed below:
This food is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which, when combined with exercise, can help to reduce weight gain and obesity, which is one of the risk factors for prostate enlargement.
2. Bell Peppers
Vitamin C is abundant in bell peppers and many other vegetables, and it is associated with the prevention of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.
Tomatoes are high in lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes as well as other plants including watermelon, papaya, and pink grapefruit. Lycopene has been associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer in men as well as a slower progression of an enlarged prostate.
4. Fruits and vegetables
Because of their nutrient compositions and antioxidant properties, increased consumption of vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, kale, and other greens has been linked to a lower risk of enlarged prostate. Onions and garlic, when consumed regularly, may help to reduce the risk of BPH.
Avocados, pumpkin seeds, soybeans, and wheat germs are all high in beta-sitosterol, a plant sterol that has been shown to improve symptoms of BPH.
