Hello Bitupan,

The prostate is a walnut shaped gland that wraps around the urethra, the tube that urine flows out of. The prostate is a part of the male reproductive system and it adds fluid to the sperm. It is the fluid that carries the sperm.
It starts out small and has two main phases of growth. It doubles in size in teenage and them continues to grow again after the age of 25 throughout the rest of a man's life. 
An excessively enlarged prostate results in a disease named as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
An enlarged prostate can clamp down on the urethra and may result in restricted urine flow from the bladder.
Improving dietary habits and routine habits are important for prevention against many diseases. 


  • Include zinc in your diet as zinc deficiencies may also lead to BPH. Zinc is present in many seeds and nuts such as sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. 
  • Drink green tea twice a day. It has antioxidants called catechins that have been shown to enhance the immune system.
  • Include fresh fruits and green  leafy vegetables in your diet as they are essential for various nutrients. 
  • Avoid dairy products, animal foods, packaged foods and processed foods. 


  • Try to urinate atleast once before leaving the home to avoid urinary leakage and other incide6in public.
  • Try not to drink fluids in the 2 hours before sleeping to avoid going to bed with a full bladder.
  • Do urethral massage after urinating by gently pressing the fingers upwards from the base of scrotum.
  • Do not wait for long when have a urge for urinating.

Physical activity

Sleep is very important to maintain circadian rhythm and hence in turn hormonal balance. 

Quality and duration of sleep, both are equally very important. It also reduces stress and maintains mental balance. 

So, take good quality sleep for at least 6-8hours a day.
