Benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH) is a condition characterized by increased number of cells of prostate gland, 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 some 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, improper nutritional status induced incorrect nutritional habits, 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 strongly suggested that intake of vegetables and fruits accompanied with healthy life style are associated in reduced risk and treatment of enlarged prostate(d)(e)(f),through enhancing antioxidants activity in inhibited over production of prostate cells(g)(h).
4 Fruits for reducing risk of Benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH)
Orange is a species of Citrus Sinensis, belongings to the family Rutaceae and native to the Southeast Asia.
According to study, the extract of red orange juice (ROE) inhibited proliferation of fibroblast and epithelial prostate cells in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia(22).
2. Water melon and strawberry
Lycopene, a member of the carotenoid family, found abundantly in Water melon, strawberry, exerted significant antioxidants effect against formation of prostate disease(23).
In he study of Profluss® included serenoa repens+Selenium+Lycopene on prostatic chronic inflammation (PCI) in 168 subjects, the compositions exhibited anti-inflammatory activity for treatment of PCI in BPH and/or PIN/ASAP patients(24).
In jection of Serenoa repens, lycopene and selenium were superior than Serenoa repens alone in reducing benign prostatic hyperplasia, through reduction of prostate weight, hyperplasia, cell proliferation and growth factor in augmentation of apoptosis(25) in compared to other treatment groups.
Cranberry is a species of Vaccinium oxycoccos, belongings to the family Ericaceae.
In the study to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) powder in men at risk of prostate disease with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) researchers suggested that the application displays a positive effect in lower total PSA level on day 180 of the study(26) and reduced urinary tract symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia(27).
Further more cranberry also found to reduce symptoms of dysuria, nocturia, urinary frequency and urgency) in a group pf 270 of BPH patients(28).
Taken together, the evidences finding postulated that adding some portions of orange, water melon, strawberry and cranberry may have a potential effect in reduced symptoms, risk, progression and treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH).
