The prostate gland is integral in maintaining the health of the male reproductive system. However, once men reach middle age, the prostate is at risk of becoming enlarged and causing a number of problems. One way to keep the prostate functioning well is to use certain spices while cooking. They help reduce ama (toxins) in the body and pacify the vata dosha, the aggravation of which is often responsible for prostate problems.
Here are the spices that are known to be beneficial for prostate health:
Haldi is extremely beneficial for the prostate as it helps clear away amavisha (a more toxic form of ama) and balances Ranjaka pitta (a type of pitta most prevalent in the liver), thus purifying the blood and urine. In addition to adding haldi to your everyday dishes, you can also mix 1 teaspoon of haldi with enough honey to turn it into a paste and have it.
This mixture of black pepper, long pepper, and ginger is an Ayurvedic spice that helps clear ama(toxins) and amavisha. Add black pepper and ginger to your foods to help rid your body of excess toxins.
Methi reduces enlargement in the prostate, which is the leading issue that occurs due to an unhealthy prostate. Incorporate methi seeds in your diet by adding them in dishes and paranthas. You can also soak methi overnight and have the water early in the morning.
These spices help balance the vata and regulate bowel movements and urination through their anti-flatulent and diuretic properties. You can brew a herbal tea using these spices or add them to your dishes and salads.
Prostate health is of the utmost importance and by including these spices in your diet, you can prevent your prostate from losing its vitality.
