All men have a prostate.  But unlike fine wine, for many men it does not improve with age. 

What is the prostate and what does it do? Okay, this is going to get pretty scientific and graphic but it is what it is.

The prostate is a gland that produces the fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation. This gland weighs about 1 ounce and is the size of an apricot. It sits just in front of the rectum and below the bladder. The prostate contracts during ejaculation and squirts its fluid into the urethra. The milky fluid produced by the prostate — prostatic fluid — makes up around 30 percent of the total fluid ejaculated (the rest is sperm and fluid from the seminal vesicles). Prostatic fluid protects sperm, helping them live longer and be more mobile. It contains a number of ingredients, including enzymes, zinc, and citric acid. One of these enzymes is PSA (prostate-specific antigen) which aids in the success of sperm by liquefying semen that has thickened after ejaculation. To function properly, the prostate needs androgens (male hormones), such as testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Bigger means better, right? Not when it comes to the prostate.

It is small but mighty!

how to keep your prostate healthy

A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Prostate

Let’s start with the diet. You are what you eat!

Certain foods are known to have an impact on prostate health because of their effect on testosterone and other important hormones.  In the prostate gland, testosterone is converted to another hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which may cause unhealthy conditions for the prostate.

But a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats is thought to protect the prostate - foods like salmon, tomatoes, berries, broccoli, nuts, citrus, onions and garlic. 

And on the opposite end, foods like red meats, dairy, alcohol, and anything high in salt should be avoided.  Wow, it seems all the fun foods are out.

Other Methods for Maintaining Prostate Health

There are also other things you can do besides following a healthy diet to protect your prostate: watch your weight, be more sexually active, and stop smoking.

It is also a good idea to supplement your diet with clinically-studied ingredients like beta-sitosterols, saw palmetto, pygeum, and ryegrass.  There is some good research on these four.

Also check out our Mdrive Classic, a men’s health supplement that contains beta-sitosterols.

So yes, all is not lost. There are things you can do to keep your prostate healthy and happy.

Great article – very easy to understand with doable recommendations. I’m only 41, but I think its time to start thinking about these things now. I like the suggestion for more sex – I’ll have to share that with my wife! ha!

How A Black Pepper Extract Can Increase Supplement Absorption

December 15, 2020

When it comes to black pepper, most people don't give much thought to it beyond the flavor it can add to their favorite food dish. They rarely consider what it is derived from or whether it has any notable qualities that deserve a second look. Black pepper is such a staple of the average diet that many people prefer to focus their attention on higher-profile seasonings such as turmeric or basil, and either take them as a supplement or use them as a seasoning to add nutritional value as well as flavor, to their food. While basil and turmeric certainly have impressive healthful properties, as it turns out so does the humble black pepper fruit.
