Slowing Prostate Cancer Progression: The Power of Pomegranate, Green Tea, Turmeric, and Broccoli

  • by


In the battle against prostate cancer, one of the most common malignancies afflicting men, we always seek new allies. Today, we explore the frontiers of food science, where everyday foods reveal extraordinary potential. More than simply fueling our bodies, food can be a formidable force for health and longevity. This is particularly true for prostate cancer, where the progression of the disease is closely monitored through a biomarker known as the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA).

PSA levels can indicate the progression and invasion of prostate cancer, making them a critical focus in managing the disease. However, what if we could employ our diets to regulate these levels, potentially slowing the disease’s progression? This question has sparked scientific interest, leading to groundbreaking research investigating the medicinal power of our foods.

Introduction: The Hidden Dangers in Our Food

In our fast-paced world, convenience often trumps all else, particularly when it comes to food. However, this convenience may come with a hidden cost. Many food ingredients widely used in the United States are raising eyebrows among health experts. While legal in the U.S., some of these substances are banned or heavily regulated in Europe due to associated health risks.

Chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers are rising. Research suggests that our diet – specifically, certain food additives – may be a contributing factor. One of the most concerning aspects is the potential link between these substances and chronic inflammation, a key driver of many diseases.
This article will delve into food additives, exploring why some ingredients that Europe deems unsafe are still permitted in the U.S. and how they might impact our health.

Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, is the most vital steroid in the group of vitamin D, crucial to numerous bodily functions. It contributes to multiple aspects of men’s well-being.

Effects of vitamin D3 on overall health:

  1. Bone health: Vitamin D3 promotes calcium absorption and phosphorus regulation, which is vital for maintaining strong bones and preventing conditions like osteoporosis and rickets.
  2. Immune function: Vitamin D3 strengthens the immune system, helping the body fight infections and reducing inflammation.
  3. Cardiovascular health: Adequate vitamin D3 is associated with better cardiovascular health and reduced risk of heart diseases.
  4. Mental health: Vitamin D3 has been linked to improved mood, cognitive function, and reduced risk of depression.

Cruciferous Vegetables (Sulforaphane) and Prostate Cancer: A Comprehensive Analysis


Prostate cancer (PC) is a disease typically associated with old age, although anomalies in the prostate tissue can be observed in men as young as their twenties or thirties. PC is generally considered to be slow-growing cancer. The long, relatively silent period of prostate cancer suggests that various therapies could potentially slow disease progression or prevent disease onset, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for invasive surgical procedures such as prostatectomy.

In the previous posts, we discussed various food ingredients such asLycopene in tomatoes, Polyacetylenic oxylipins in carrots, Vitamin K2 in sauerkraut, and nattothat have proven anti-cancer activities. This article will address the potential cancer-fighting properties of another natural gift – broccoli.

Foods Reducing the Risk of Prostate Cancer. Tomatoes

  • by


Lycopene, a member of the carotenoid family, is generously found in tomatoes and tomato-based products, pink grapefruit, and watermelon. Interestingly, despite their lack of red or orange color, asparagus, and parsley are also substantial sources of lycopene.

As a potent antioxidant, lycopene is vital in neutralizing reactive oxygen species. The human body, however, cannot synthesize lycopene alone; it must be supplied through our daily diet. Once absorbed, lycopene is primarily stored in the testes, liver, adrenal glands, and prostate. Its concentration in the testes is up to ten times higher than in other tissues, suggesting a unique biological role in these areas.

Whole foods vs supplements in the prevention of chronic diseases


It has long been noted that the regular consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is correlated with a low incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, etc. Scientists began attributing plant foods’ health benefits to various biologically active substances isolated from different parts of plants. However, the assumption that isolated individual antioxidants or phytochemicals can replace the intake of plant foods has proven to be erroneous, if not harmful. The results of clinical trials are not consistent with the beneficial effects of the dietary supplements and cannot explain the observed health advantages of diets rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Dietary supplements in clean form may not work in the same way as the ingredients of the whole food and, in addition to having fewer useful effects, may also be potentially dangerous.

Carrots – a food with proven anti-cancer power


Carrot is a gold mine in our kitchen, rich in health-beneficial phytochemicals such as carotenoids, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and polyacetylenes. Throughout the history of carrot cultivation, people have intuitively used its beneficial qualities, widely including it in their daily diet. Nowadays, scientific evidence backing carrot has been accumulating in terms of anticancer, cholesterol and cardiovascular disease lowering, anti-diabetic, anti-hypertensive, hepatoprotective, renoprotective, and wound healing benefits.
A person is often dismissive of what he is used to seeing every day in abundance. Therefore, many may not even suspect that they have at hand a product that can prevent or even cure many types of chronic diseases. This post will focus on carrots’ scientifically proven health benefits, particularly their outstanding anti-cancer properties.
