Dr. Geo Espinosa, ND, LAc, IFMCP, CNS, clinical assistant professor of integrative and functional urology at New York University and author of Thrive—Don’t Survive: Dr. Geo’s Guide to Living Your Best Life Before & After Prostate Cancer, talks about the supplements men can take to reduce their prostate cancer risk. Supplements, along with proper nutrition and exercise, help to create an environment that is hostile to cancer. Supplements of curcumin and boswellia can reduce inflammation…grapeseed extract and modified citrus pectin are associated with a lower risk for prostate cancer…and selenium (in a selenized yeast form) supports prostate health in general. Vitamin C and mixed tocopherol vitamin E also are beneficial. Be sure to speak with a medical professional before taking supplements.
