Men’s sexual health requires healthy circulation and blood flow where and when it’s needed most. Prostate health depends on several factors: maintaining healthy prostate size, encouraging healthy prostate function and promoting healthy levels of both testosterone and estrogen.

Frequently Asked Men's Health Questions

What is a healthy diet for men?

A healthy diet for men includes a lot of fruits and vegetables, at least 5 servings a day. Try to include those with lycopene for prostate health, such as tomatoes, papayas and asparagus. Berries also pack a nutritional punch. Healthy fats, like omega-3’s and other mono- and polyunsaturated fats found in fish, nuts and olive oil, are also great for health. Beans, chickpeas and other lean protein sources can help build muscle for improved fitness and vitality. Whole grains can also be part of a varied diet.

What are health tips for men over 50?

As men age, it becomes even more critical to monitor health with regular checkups at the doctor. Men should have their cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, PSA and hormone levels checked to ensure optimal levels. Hormones tend to decline with age, especially the essential testosterone and DHEA in men, so replacement therapy may be an option. Ensure PSA levels are within a normal range for your age. Follow a heart-healthy diet, exercise regularly and aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

How can men stay fit as they age?

Staying fit becomes more essential with age. Exercising regularly can help maintain mobility, improve mood and well-being and stave off diseases associated with aging. Stay active! If aching joints are an issue, try low-impact exercises like swimming and stretching. Supplements for joint health can make exercise more comfortable as well. Eat healthy, get enough sleep and keep your mind in shape for optimal health.
