Most men do not consider prostate health until they learn that someone they know has prostate cancer, but they should. There is an old adage that if a guy lives long enough, he will develop prostate cancer. However, there are many things we can do to prevent prostate problems in the long run. One of these is to test DHT levels. DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is the hormone that causes male pattern baldness and is a major contributor to prostate issues and cancer.
The majority of DHT is produced by testosterone conversion. As a result, if you have a family history of prostate cancer, you should exercise extreme caution when using testosterone replacement treatment. Ask your doctor about Nandrolone Decanoate, which does not convert to estrogen or DHT. For prostate difficulties, my team frequently uses Deca in a stack or alone. Aside from hormone therapy, the prostate might have a variety of problems.
Aside from hormone therapy, the prostate might have a variety of problems. This is frequently attributable to men's low levels of antioxidants and the specific foods they consume for their prostate. While the standard maintenance that I normally propose, cleaning the liver and kidneys first, remains true, cleaning the digestive system and colon is equally critical. Increasing your fiber and water consumption to transport congested trapped fecal matter out of the intestines aids in the reduction of harmful buildup inside the large intestine.
The big intestine surrounds the prostate, and if the environment around the intestines is poisonous, so is the prostate. Increasing your intake of antioxidants such as Omega 3, EPA/DHA, green tea, and Coq-10 is also beneficial. Lycopene, histidine, and folate, as well as B6, selenium, and saw palmetto, are all beneficial to the prostate. However, biomechanical factors also exert pressure on the prostate. Sitting all day is not only harmful for your back; it can also put pressure on the prostate and alter the way the pelvic floor works.
This alteration may cause more waste items to accumulate on and around the prostate, preventing appropriate lymphatic and blood flow. The easy remedy is to get up and walk about more in our daily lives. Going to the gym, going for a stroll, or even simply getting up and walking about the office every now and again will help a lot. So, if you haven't given prostate health much thought, it's a good idea to start now, before it becomes a problem.
