By    |   Tuesday, 17 Mar 2015 02:20 PM

According to Earth Clinic, "prostate cancer is the single most common form of cancer among men in the United States." The symptoms of prostate cancer are often times undetectable which can give the cancer time to advance. That is why it's extremely important for men over the age of 40 to have regular prostate exams.

Here are 10 natural remedies for men to consider in treatment of prostate cancer:

1. Cayenne peppers, also known as chili peppers, get their heat from a high concentration of a substance called capsaicin, which studies have shown can help kill cancer cells, according to Prostate.net. Cayenne pepper is available in capsules.

2. According to WebMD, studies have demonstrated pomegranate has a positive effect on reducing cancer in mice while studies on human cells show similar promise.

3. Some researchers believe lycopene may retard the growth of prostate tumors, according to WebMD. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant, which is found in abundance in some fruits and vegetables, and particularly in cooked tomatoes.

4. Scientists have discovered that turmeric — a popular spice with a bitter, peppery taste, which is produced by grinding the roots of a perennial plant that bears the same name — may be effective in treating prostate cancer, according to Prostate.net.

5. Many medicinal mushrooms including chaga mushroom, maitake mushroom, ganoderma mushroom and cordyceps mushrooms "contain cancer-preventive and cancer-fighting actions," according to Natural News.

6. When consumed on a regular basis, ginger, a powerful herb with roots that possess certain antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, inhibits the proliferation of cancerous cells, according to My Health Tips.

7. Soy foods contain an active ingredient known as phytoestrogens, which inhibit the secretion of testosterone, restrict the blood flow in the area of the prostate gland and thus inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.

8. Green tea contains an active ingredient called polyphenols, which stop the growth and multiplication of cancerous cells and also have the potential to kill the existing cancer cells, according to My Health Tips.

9. Regular consumption of foodstuffs such as flax seeds and fatty fishes, which contain high levels of omega3 fatty acids, can reduce the effect of prostate cancer.

10. Vitamin D not only prevents but helps in curing prostate cancer, according to My Health Tips. Some of the best sources of vitamin D are fortified cereals and cold water fish, with other possibilities including sufficient sunlight exposure and vitamin D3 supplements.
