Green tea and hibiscus tea do a lot to promote prostate health, due to the presence of potent antioxidants.

2. Adjust your diet

What makes a prostate-healthy diet? The omega-3 fatty acids found in some types of oily fish are great for your prostate, as are healthy fats including nuts and avocados. Vegetables on the whole are a good idea when it comes to making prostate-healthy food choices, and you should try to avoid processed foods, saturated fats, and too much sugar.

You can also focus on eating more foods like tomatoes, pomegranate juice, walnuts, and certain types of mushrooms in order to reduce your risk of prostate cancer. This could be an especially good idea if you have a family history of prostate cancer.

3. Supplement your nutrition

In addition to eating a healthier diet, why not supplement your nutrition for even better prostate support results? Talk to Dr. Fareed about nutritional supplements that could benefit you and your long-term prostate health.
