Prostatitis is a prostate disease caused by various complex causes, with urethral irritation symptoms and chronic pelvic pain as the primary clinical manifestations. Prostatitis is a common disease in urology, accounting for the first place in male patients under 50 years old. Although the incidence rate of prostatitis is high, the etiology is still not clear.

Prostatitis, especially chronic prostatitis, accounts for about 90% of all prostatitis. The condition is prolonged and easy to relapse. The treatment is mainly symptomatic and herbal drug treatment, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

In addition to drugs, diet management is essential to alleviate prostatitis .

1. Supplement of protein and essential fatty acids. Amino acids and essential fatty acids are necessary for the composition and secretion of prostate cells and prostaglandins. Therefore, pay attention to supplement proteins, such as milk, lean meat, marine fish, seaweed, and nuts rich in essential fatty acids. Soybeans and their products are the best food to prevent prostate cancer. The researchers found that the Japanese have a low rate of breast and prostate cancer because their diet contains many soybean products.

2. Appropriate vitamin supplements. Vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin C can remove free radicals and protect cells near the prostate from injury. Cholesterol in the skin can be transformed into vitamin D by sunlight. Vitamin D can inhibit the growth of prostate cancer. Egg yolk, butter, liver, and fish oil are good sources of vitamin D; Sunflower rapeseed oil, pumpkin seed, rapeseed oil, and corn oil are good sources of vitamin E. Vitamin E and lycopene can reduce the incidence rate of prostate cancer.

3. Pay attention to supplement minerals selenium and zinc. Selenium and zinc are two essential trace minerals lacking in the blood of patients with prostate disease. Selenium is an antioxidant, which can prevent cells from oxidative damage and cause tumor growth; Zinc is a mineral concentration in the prostate. Scientists believe that zinc can regulate the metabolism of testosterone in the prostate. Seafood and nuts are rich in minerals such as zinc and selenium.

4. Limit fat intake. Some studies have pointed out that high animal fat in the diet is a significant risk factor for prostate cancer. Reducing the intake of oil and eating less oil can also reduce the inflammation of the prostate caused by some compounds. Try to reduce the daily fat intake to less than 20% of total calories to reduce the incidence rate of prostate cancer.

5. Food with health care effect on the prostate. Zinc-rich foods include oysters, walnut kernels, sesame seeds, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, etc. These foods have a good adjuvant therapeutic effect on prostatitis and significantly help promote and restore the reproductive function closely related to zinc content.

Pumpkin seeds are rich in amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, carotene, and other nutrients, zinc, iron, and other trace elements, as well as a large number of B vitamins and high-quality protein. More importantly, the active ingredients and rich zinc in pumpkin seeds have a health care effect on the prostate. Eating pumpkin seeds can prevent and treat benign prostatic hyperplasia and enhance sexual function.

Studies have found that long-term consumption of apples can prevent and treat male chronic prostate diseases, and the content of zinc in apples is very high. Tomato is rich in lycopene, which can protect the prostate. Green tea also plays a role in preventing and treating prostate cancer.

6. Dietary taboos. Avoid irritant food. Spicy and irritating food can make the prostate congested and swollen and affect urination. Liquor, pepper, ginger, curry, mustard, and pepper should be avoided at ordinary times when being used as a seasoning. Alcohol can make the prostate and bladder congestion and edema, aggravate prostatitis, compress the prostate and make it difficult to urinate. Coffee is one of the pathogenetic factors of bladder cancer. Caffeine can cause congestion in the pelvic cavity and aggravate the symptoms of prostate disease.

Avoid raw and cold food. The cold stimulation of raw and cold food will shrink the prostate and cause adverse urine circulation. TCM believes that prostatitis is caused by kidney deficiency and unfavorable bladder gasification. In diet, men should choose foods with Tonifying Qi and kidney, rich nutrition, and tonifying. Some are lean pig meat, black chicken, water chestnut, sugarcane, grape, kiwi fruit, etc. Regularly eating buckwheat is also suitable for prostatitis.

Prostatitis is one of the common diseases in adult men, especially in the middle-aged and elderly. Although prostatitis is not a direct life-threatening disease, it seriously affects patients' quality of life. Only by doing a good job in diet regulation in daily life can men's "difficult words" be effectively prevented and alleviated.
