3 Natural Ways to Shrink Your ProstateFor the first half of a man’s life, the prostate gland does its work silently and efficiently. It helps a man function sexually and ensures fertility.

Most younger men never think about this vital organ. They may not even know it exists.

But after age 30, something bad starts to happen.

The prostate, spurred by age-related hormonal changes, begins to grow. By the time a men are in their 50s, half of them will suffer symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

They start to have difficulty urinating. They suffer exhaustion because they are getting up at night multiple times to use the bathroom. They may become incontinent. Their social life and sex life suffers. In short, their quality of life plummets.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

If a man knows the size of his prostate, he can act before it’s too late. Know the size of your prostate: Take the quiz here.

Here are three simple ways to shrink your prostate naturally:

  1. Get Moving

A Harvard University study found that men who are physically active are much less likely to suffer from an enlarged prostate. And it doesn’t have to be strenuous. The research shows that even walking at a moderate pace helps.[1]

Italian researchers asked men with prostate problems to go for brisk walks three times a week. After 18 weeks, they reported less prostate pain and better quality of life. 

  1. Slim Down

Being overweight is one of the biggest risk factors for an enlarged prostate. One of the best things you can do to end prostate problems is to slim down.[2]

Belly fat is particularly bad for your prostate. A study in the journal Obesity found that waist size is a major risk factor for an enlarged prostate.[3]

  1. Drink Green Tea

Men in Japan have much lower rates of prostate problems than American men. Researchers believe this is due to green tea. The beverage is very popular in Japan.

Catechins in green tea promote normal prostate size.[4] Researchers have found that green tea regulates hormones that affect prostate volume. Green tea’s powerful antioxidants can lower inflammation. This reduces the urinary symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
