Men with an enlarged prostate are often told to avoid caffeine and alcohol because both can worsen urinary symptoms. These can certainly send you to the bathroom more often, but they do so by increasing urine production, but I’ve found no real evidence either of these will enlarge your prostate, increases PSA, or promote cancer. In fact, there is some data suggesting that a small amount of alcohol may actually improve urinary obstructive symptoms. It’s important to remember that just because a supplement is labeled “natural” doesn’t always mean it’s safe or healthy. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn’t regulate herbal remedies like it does drugs. That means you can’t be totally sure that what’s listed on the label is inside the bottle. Herbal remedies can cause side effects like drugs and can also interact with other medicines you take. So check with your doctor before trying any natural supplements and choose the brand from reputable manufacture he/she suggests.
