Colours of Prostate Health 

Everyone knows that eating well helps to improve vitality and head off illness, the food choices we make over the years can lessen the chances that disease will take root. The different pigments in fruits and vegetables often say a lot about what’s in them. One way to make sure that your diet has a broad range of cancer fighting nutrients is by creating a palate of natural colours, which is a simple way to keep your meals balanced.

Prostate (or any) cancer Prevention

When it comes to prostate (or any) cancer prevention, we talk a lot about free radicals, oxidation stress and their contribution to disease. 

 O

Oxidation is a normal process in our bodies. Oxygen atoms contain two electrons.

 O2

Through normal activities these electrons sometimes split from each other and roam “freely”

other atoms

The freed electrons can then begin radical chemical reactions with other atoms, causing damage to tissues and organs.

Leading to development of abnormal cells ie. Cancer

Your body has a sophisticated defense system that keeps the development of cancer in check, by eliminating free radicals and removing damaged cells. However when it’s ability to deal with, stress, infection and inflammation (all causes of oxidation) is burdened, making sure to get foods rich in anti-oxidants is even more important. 


CHINESE MEDICINE AND FOOD
For centuries, Chinese medicine has advocated eating a broad range of foods to allow nature provide you with important nutrients that contain antioxidants and help sweep up 
free radicals and counteract the damage of oxidation. It is by no means exhaustive, so find other fruits and veggies you love that have these, as well as other health promoting compounds.

 

TOMATOES, WATERMELON, PINK GRAPEFRUIT,SWEET RED PEPPERS, GUAVA

All of these contain lycopene, one of the most studied anti-oxidants in the fight against prostate cancer. Many studies have shown it to be a powerful neutralizer of free radicals and diets rich in tomato products lower risks for many types of cancer.Interestingly, isolated lycopene supplementation has not proven to be as effective as getting it from whole food sources such as tomato soups, sauces and even ketchup.

GRAPES, POMEGRANATE, PLUMS, BERRIES, REDCABBAGE, EGGPLANT

Anthocyanins are the compounds that give these fruits their distinctive color (wine too!). They provide protection for cell membranes against oxidative stress and support healthy blood vessels.Their anti-inflammatory effects also help regulate cell wall permeability and neutralize enzymes that destroy connective tissue.
