Plant nutrients are powerful immune boosters.There is a former health supplement company.  I am NOT a member. They have a great range of health products including plant sterols and glyconutrients.

You should be qble to find a distributer in your local telephone book. I would advise checking out what they have to offer.

Many people claim glyconutrients have been a great help in reducing their prostate symptoms and improving their prostate health.

2. Saw Palmetto Can Improve Prostate Health I personally take this every day. It has been shown to improves urinary flow, reduces inflammation of the prostate.

3. Pygeum Africanum Can Improve Prostate Health - Pygeum is a herbal remedy containing extracts from the bark of Prunus africana. It is an anti-inflammatory and increases blood flow to the prostateis used as to alleviate some of the discomfort caused by inflammation in patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia.

4. Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fish Oils Can Improve Prostate Health . These have been shown to help prevent three of the most common forms of cancer – breast, colon and prostate. Science tells us that omega 3s accomplish this in three ways. They stop the alteration from a normal healthy cell to a cancerous mass, inhibiting unwanted cellular growth and causing apoptosis, or cellular death, of cancer cells.

Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids work to decrease the inflammation of the prostate.

5. Eat more Tomatoes, Cranberries & Pumpkinseed. Why?  They Each Can Improve Prostate Health

a) In a study of over 40,000 health professionals, Harvard investigators found that men who ate more than 10 servings tomato-based foods daily (like cooked tomatoes and tomato sauce,) had a 35 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer than those who ate the least amount of these foods. The benefits of lycopene was more pronounced with advanced stages of prostate cancer.

b) One of the factors that contributes to BPH is overstimulation of the prostate cells by testosterone and its conversion product, DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Components in pumpkin seed oil appear able to interrupt this triggering of prostate cell multiplication by testosterone and with higher amounts of carotenoids in their diet have less risk for BPH; this is the connection that has led to an interest in pumpkin seed carotenoids.

c) In one study they tried dripping a few millionths of a gram of ground up cranberries on a number of human prostate cancer cell lines in petri dishes. They found that the growth of even the chemotherapy resistant cancer cells was successfully inhibited. [Journal of Nutrition  133(2003):3846S.]
