  • Be careful with having high cholesterol levels or blood pressure as they worsen the health of your prostate.

Beneficial foods for your prostate:

A specific food will not improve or prevent the health of your prostate. It is the set of everything you eat and the variety, which will make your prostate healthy. Following the Mediterranean diet helps to achieve this goal.

Increase these foods in your daily diet:

  • Fruits, especially pomegranate, strawberries, peaches, grapes, melon, and oranges.
  • Whole grains like rice, bread, pasta, etc.

Foods related to prostate cancer that you should reduce or avoid:

Trans fat.  In the nutritional labeling you will be able to detect them because it puts in the list of ingredients “partially hydrogenated fats” or “hydrogenated”.

  • Red meats (beef, pork and lamb).
  • Alcohol and distilled beverages.
  • Dairy and its derivatives.
