5 Nigerian Foods That Can Cleanse The Prostrate & Flush Out Harmful Infections



A little organ called the prostate has a significant impact on men’s reproductive health. When it is healthy, it is doughnut-shaped and encircles the urethra, the tube through which men urinate. (Due to the difficulty of urinating when the prostate is enlarged.)


There’s also no questioning the role food plays in maintaining prostate health and easing symptoms in men with prostate disease.

According to Medicalnewstoday, the following foods can aid in prostate cleansing.

1. Legumes.

Iron, magnesium, potassium, folate, and fibre are all abundant in legumes. They are adaptable and can be used in salads, soups, casseroles, stews, and other dishes. With your preferred herbs and spices, you may also serve legumes as a side dish.

It has been demonstrated that soybeans, a type of legume, support prostate health. The isoflavones found in soybeans are phytoestrogens. Tofu, soy milk, cooked soybeans called edamame, and tempeh are examples of whole soy products.

2. Vegetables & fruits.


Vegetables and fruits are a great source of vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and phytochemicals (plant nutrients). Combining these nutrients may help to keep your prostate healthy on its own. Every day, eat five servings or more of fruits and vegetables. Pick fruits and vegetables that fall into the green, yellow/orange, red/purple, and white colour categories to get a good variety of phytochemicals that are helpful for the prostate.

Consuming a variety of fruit and vegetable colours is essential.

3. Fatty fish.


A natural and healthful meat substitute is fish. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fattier fish including salmon, mackerel, herring, trout, and swordfish (EPA and DHA). Omega-3 fatty acids can support heart and prostate function.

4. Drink green tea.

Antioxidants called catechin polyphenols, which are present in green tea, may benefit prostate health. Green tea should be consumed three to four times daily. Caffeine in green tea ranges from 10 to 20 percent of that in coffee. If you want decaffeinated green tea, seek out a brand that employs water and carbon dioxide as the solvent (effervescence). Given that it preserves the majority of the catechins, this method of decaffeination is advised.

5. Tomatoes.


Tomatoes that have been cooked are crucial in lowering the prevalence of prostate cancer. According to a study, men who regularly consume cooked tomatoes had a 28 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer than men who do not. Lycopene-rich tomatoes have an antioxidant effect on prostate tissue and can help flush out infections.
