Many men tend to overlook their prostate until a certain age or until it becomes a problem. If you’re still young and don’t understand what all the fuss is about, let me tell you why you should take care of your prostate before it becomes a problem.
Prostate is a gland in your body that is essential for fertility. Unlike most stuff in your body, the prostate only grows with age instead of shrinking. An enlarged prostate gland can actually cause you some annoying problems as well as some life-threatening ones.
First, a bigger prostate gland will keep you from sleeping the whole night as you’ll be constantly waking up to go to the bathroom. Second – it can interfere with your sex life. This means that it can actually cause erectile dysfunction. Third and most important – not taking care of your prostate can actually cause cancer, which left untreated can be deadly.
Don’t get scared. If you take care of your prostate properly – most likely you won’t have to face any troubles related to it. Here are some essential rules to follow that will keep your prostate happy and satisfied.
#1 Watch Your Weight
Just like many other diseases, prostate problems are also impacted by your weight. This means that eating a lot of carbohydrate-rich food can negatively impact your prostate’s health. That’s why in order to keep your prostate healthy, you should choose a diet that is rich in vegetables and legumes, various fruits, fish and lean meat.
Not only will this benefit your prostate but your weight as well. Keeping a healthy weight positively impacts the health of your vital organs, your mood and overall life quality. I’m sure that you know that it’s more fun to climb up the stairs without losing your breath.
#2 Test Yourself
While you can do everything right in order to keep your prostate happy and healthy – there are no guarantees that the methods will work. Especially if prostate problems run in your family. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much work and effort you put into looking after your health – your genetics may simply overpower that.
That’s why regular visits to the doctor can actually help reduce the risks of any serious prostate problem getting out of control. So, in this case – better safe than sorry.
However, even if the problems run in your family, you shouldn’t overlook the healthy diet part. Leading a healthy lifestyle can still play a major role in your potential to get prostate-related problems.
#3 Manage Stress
Stress is one of the main causes that leads to various diseases. That includes prostate troubles. In today’s world stress is the leading cause of various diseases. However, if you follow some simple rules, you can actually reduce your stress levels, be more relaxed and lead a healthier lifestyle.
The main activities that can help you reduce stress are various sports. Also, simply taking some time for yourself is also super useful when it comes to managing stress levels. Sports that require less moving and more posture holding are also great for relieving stress, since they require a lot of breathing and concentration which help to clear your mind.
#4 Live an Active Sex Life
Living an active sex life can also help your prostate healthy. During sex you reduce stress and relieve the tension, also it’s a great way to workout.
Even if you’re currently single, there are ways you can benefit your prostate in a positive manner. That, of course, is masturbation. Regular masturbation benefits your health in a similar way sex does. It relieves tension, helps blow off steam and makes you happier in general.
If you get tired of playing with your own hand, there are ways to level up your masturbation game. That is, of course, sex toys. There is a reason why pocket pussies are currently the most popular male sex toys – they’re pretty damn good. Even though they’re not designed for prostate stimulation, like prostate massagers are, they’re the perfect way to blow off steam and keep your sex life interesting without the desperate need of random hookups which can lead to various sexual diseases. However, more on this topic the next time.
#5 Replace Coffee With Tea
While coffee is an excellent refreshment – you shouldn’t take too much of it. Overusing caffeine is not only harmful for your cardiovascular system but it can negatively impact your prostate as well. So, instead of 5 coffee mugs per day – try to limit yourself to maximum 2 and get some tea instead. Your prostate will thank you later.
In general, you won’t have any prostate troubles in your youth, however, it’s the healthy life when you’re older that is what we’re working towards.
