The Best 5 Studied Proof Foods for Reducing Risk and Treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia(BPH)

Kyle J. Norton

Benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH) is a condition of increased numbers of cell of prostate tissues, causing partial, or sometimes virtually complete obstruction of the urinary tract.

According to statistic, BPH commonly starts at age of 30 and symptoms usually can not be realized until age of 50.

More than half of men between age of 60-70 are experience symptoms of BPH and only 10% are required treatment.

Suggestion of BPH is associated to nutritional status and eating habits, according to the study, 30 male patients with clinically confirmed and treated disease of the prostatic gland, including 15 men (aged 51-75 years) with BPH and 15 men (aged 51-73 years) with PC, indicated that improper nutritional status leaind to incorrect nutritional habits and failing to improve their health, may be the cause of the development of some diet-dependent diseases, such as BPH and prostate cancer(a).

A proper diet with vegetable, fruit containing zinc may reduce the risk of the disease from initiation(b)(c).

Epidemiological studies, indicated intake of vegetables and fruits accompanied with healthy life style may be associated in prevented risk and treatment of enlarged prostate(d)(e)(f)in inhibited over production of prostate cells though antioxidant activity (g)(h).

Top 5 Foods for Reducing Risk of Benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH)

1. Green tea
Green tea containing more amount of antioxidants than any drinks or food with the same volume, is the leaves of Camellia sinensis, undergone minimal oxidation during processing, originated from China.

Green tea is a precious drink in traditional Chinese culture and used exceptional in socialization for more than 4000 thousand years.

Because of their health benefits, they have been cultivated for commercial purposes all over the world.

In the examine the levels and activity of androgen hormones in associated to the risk of BPH, researchers indicated that application of green tea catechin, (-)epigallocatechin-3-gallate, modulated the expression androgenic activity in reduced progression of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

These result suggested that EGCG may be useful for the treatment of various hormone-related abnormalities, inckuding benign prostatic hyperplasia(29)(32)

5 alpha-reductase activity long has suspected to a significant impact in induction of early onset of benign prostatic hyperplasia,

According to the study conducted by the Ben May Institute for Cancer Research, and The Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research, administration of green tea catechin (-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) exerts a strong effect in replaced the gallate ester with long-chain fatty acids in acting as a potent 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors(30).

 The study by the Oregon State University, also indicated that the combination of soy and tea attenuated prostate malignancy by decreasing prostate hyperplasia in male noble rats implanted with estradiol and testosterone(31)

2. Coffee

Coffee made from the roasted seeds of the genus Coffee, belongings to the family Rubiaceae native to southern Arabia.

According to Dr. Morrison AS. coffee drinking was inversely but only weakly related to prostatic hypertrophy(BPH) in 910 residents of Rhode Island who had a partial or total prostatectomybetween the years 1985-1987(33).

In a study of a total of 1369 patients younger than 75 years old surgically treated for BPH and 1451 controls younger than 75 years of age, the prevalence of  BPH was insignificantly among coffee drinkers(34)(35)

However, according to the study by the Univ Estadual Paulista (UNESP) in the rat prostate gland, chronic caffeine intake from puberty may increase androgenic signalling and cell proliferation in initiated development of benign prostatic hyperplasia(36).

3. Pumpkin seeds
Pumpkin seed(PS) or pepita, an edible seed of a pumpkin with flat, dark green color is the genus Cucurbita and belonging to the family Cucurbitaceae.

The origin of pumpkins is unknown, although many people believe that they have originated in North America.

According the study of 20 male Wistar rats, conducted by the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, injection of pumpkin seeds inhibited the induction of BPH and through increasing the testosterone:estradiol ratio(37).

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in over 12 months on 47 benign prostatic hyperplasia patients with average age of 53.3 years and international prostate symptom score over 8, researchers showed that PS demonstrated a positive effect in treatments of benign prostatic hyperplasia(38).

Other study also suggested that oral administration of pumpkin seed oil inhibits testosterone-induced hyperplasia of the prostate(39).

4. Coconut oil
Coconut palm tree is a genus cocos, belongings to the family Arecaceae, native to the tropic and subtropic area.
According to chemical differentiation, coconut oil may reduce total cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, LDL, and VLDL cholesterol levels and increased HDL cholesterol in serum, etc through numbers of phytochemicals.(40).

Coconut oil reduced the increase of both prostate weight (PW) and body weight (BW) ratio, markers in testosterone-induced PH in rats(41).

5. Fish oil

Fish oil, rich in long-chain polyunsaturated essential fatty acids of the omega-3 group may have a potential effect in  reduced BPH risk.

According to the study by the University of California at Davis, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from fish oil inhibited 80% of gamDHT-enhanced activity of 5 alpha-reductase(42).

Other, in the study of the serum samples of 24 BPH and 19 PC patients, and from 21 age-matched normal male subjects, scientists found that the omega-3 PUFAs level was significantly decreased in patient with BPH(43).

However, in the study to compare the levels of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in leukocytes and prostate tissue in men with prostate cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), scientists found that long-chain polyunsaturated essential fatty acids intake is not associated in reduced risk of BPH(44).

Taking altogether, certain foods have been found effectively in reduced risk and treatments of Benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH). But large sample and multi centers studies are necessary for reconfirm the viability.
