What fruits and vegetables can help relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate?


Q. Like many older men, I deal with BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). Are any particular fruits and vegetables helpful in dealing with the symptoms?


A. There are no specific fruits and vegetables that will help shrink the prostate. However, including a variety of fruits and vegetables in the diet is a good weight management strategy, and maintaining a healthy body weight is one thing that is important for treating an enlarged prostate.
