Pumpkin seeds remedy for prostate
QUESTION: how many Pumpkin seeds be taken for remedy of prostrate? Enlarged Prostrate 70mg.
: Hi Naik,
According to your data, the weight of your prostate is around 7 times bigger than the normal prostate gland. Normally, the weight of the prostate is around 7-16 grams.
Therefore, you should take not only Pumpkin seeds but even medications and follow the right lifestyle and diet changes.
In addition, I encourage you to do Kegel exercises in order to reduce the symptoms and to improve the process of urination.
With regards to pumpkin seeds, they are shown very effective for the prostate enlargement due to their high content in Zinc.
For your information, Zinc is a mineral which is very useful for the prostate metabolism, because it takes a part as a constructive element in the molecule of certain enzymes.
However, you have to know that pumpkin seeds are not the biggest source of Zinc for the organism. The biggest source of Zinc remains the oyster.
The daily need of Zinc is about 20 mg, it is important for you to know that is not good for you to acquire more Zink than 20 mg.
Another important thing is that one seed of pumpkin is containing about 2.17 mg of Zinc. For that reason, you have to eat about 5-8 seeds of pumpkin every day.
You have to consult with your doctor about the size of your prostate. He can prescribe you drugs which will stimulate the effect of Zinc and this will reduce the size of your prostate even more.
The major groups of drugs which are used for the treatment of enlarged prostate are alpha- blocker and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors.
These drugs are often used together and when you combine them with pumpkin seeds you will forget about the problems related to your prostate.
All the best!Dr.Alba
