None validated: There are no diets or exercises that have been validated to be effective. See this site for more information about bph, including home management. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/prostate-gland-enlargement/ds00027.

BPH: Some over the counter herbals are advertised: lycopene; saw palmetto; studies vary about their value; aerobic exercise is good; avoid saturated fat; foods naturally high in lycopene are tomato and red pepper.

Try these: The University of Maryland reports that a diet with fruits and vegetables rich in beta carotene and vitamin C, and increasing healthy fats like omega-3, can help protect against benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).
