Almonds For Prostate Health: Just a Little Reduces BPH Symptoms
Recent research suggests beta-sitosterol found in almonds and other nuts may benefit benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
In a six-month study of 200 men with BPH, 60 mg per day of a beta-sitosterol improved the symptoms of BPH and increased urine flow.
A follow-up study reported that these improvements in symptoms of BPH were maintained for up to18 months in the 38 participants who continued consuming beta-sitosterol after the study ended.
