A healthy diet can benefit just about every part of your body, including the tiny gland which helps create semen. Although your prostate is on the small side, health issues beginning in this little gland can become big health problems. These five foods are credited with boosting men’s health, as well as helping reduce the risk of prostate problems including prostate cancer.
Your prostate is a small gland, around the size of a walnut, which helps create semen.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for men in the UK, with almost 50,000 men being diagnosed with the condition every year.
However there are many other health conditions that can begin in the prostate, such as an enlarged prostate and prostatis.
Diet can play a crucial role in supporting prostate health.
There aren’t any foods that could ‘cure’ prostate cancer (or any cancer, for that matter), but there are many foods linked to better overall health and a healthier prostate.
Here are the five foods you should eat for a healthy prostate.

5 – Pomegranates
This seedy red fruit is another excellent source of antioxidants, which help your body stave off cell damage.
Studies on animals and in test tube settings have found promising results for pomegranate juice stopping the production of prostate cancer cells, but more studies are needed in humans.
