Prostate health is the #1 health issue for men of all ages. Last week I wrote an article about the prostate and some of its common issues. This week I will be highlighting the cruciferous vegetables that protect the prostate through providing powerful phytonutrients in your diet.
The best way to protect against prostate issues through nutrition is eating cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables contain a phytonutrient (plant nutrient) called indole-3-carbinole which is changed within the liver to Diindolylmethane (DIM). These compounds assist the liver in breaking down and detoxifying estrogen, cause cancer-cell death, and protect cell DNA. I bet you didn't know that broccoli can do all of that!
My advice is: prevention is the best medicine. Begin to include some of these cruciferous vegetables into your daily diet. It may help you avoid the uncomfortable reality that prostate issues are likely headed your way.
Here's my list of the best cruciferous vegetables you can eat to protect your prostate and prevent prostate health issues:
