In men, the prostate gland is a small gland about the size of a walnut that is located just below the bladder. It is one of the most at-risk areas in the male body. It can negatively impact urine and sexual function if it becomes enlarged or otherwise compromised. In this episode of HealthLine Live Radio Show, Dr. Robert Marshall, Ph.D. and co-founder of Quantum Nutrition Labs, offers some of his wise advice from many years of experience on how to support the optimal health of the prostate gland.
"The prostate plays a very key role in male health. There’s been so much research and information regarding the prostate,” Dr. Marshall begins. “Basically, the first step to promote the best health of the prostate is to supply your body with adequate amounts of key nutrients known to support prostate health and prostate improvement.”
One of Dr. Marshall’s secret ingredients to helping the prostate may surprise you: “I think that a really great ace for prostate health is lycopene, which comes from the tomato and tomato concentrates. If you are able to find a product that is loaded with lycopene, or if you regularly consume a large quantity of tomatoes, you are elegantly supporting the health of the prostate.”
"For some of you on medications, it can induce a challenge to the prostate. Here, magnesium can be very helpful, ”Dr. Marshall explains. He finds insufficient intake of magnesium as well as calcium can be linked to unwanted prostate cell growth, which may lead to an enlarged or congested prostate as well as a whole host of health risks. Magnesium and calcium are controlled by linked processes, so ensuring that you achieve adequate amounts of magnesium and calcium levels can help to support optimal prostate health.
Another suggestion from Dr. Marshall is to check your interference fields: “An interference field is a scar or a previous trauma that can be sedating the healthy energy flow, the nerve pathway, to key organs or glands. When these fields are active, they can be unrelenting. Consuming proper nutrients can slow them down.”
