Prostate cancer is the second most common malignancy among men, with more than 160,000 American men expected to be diagnosed in 2017, according to the American Cancer Society. It is also one of the most preventable cancers - because it tends to be very slow-growing and nutritional approaches can be highly effective. The following is a list of nutrients that have been found to protect against the development of prostate cancer. 

High consumption of lycopene - the carotenoid pigment abundant in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables - delivers potent effects against prostate cancer and is associated with a 59% lower risk of dying from more aggressive prostate cancers. One 2016clincial trail on 79 prostate cancer patients demonstrated that lycopene-rich tomato products significantly decreased PSA compared to controls. By suppressing critical "master regulatory molecules," such as nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), lycopene inhibits inflammatory processes that promote prostate-and many other-cancers. 

Research demonstrated that administering the bark extract of Pygeum africanum to mice specifically bred to develop prostate cancers significantly lowered their risk of developing this malignancy. Pygeum applied directly to prostate cells in culture inhibited cell proliferation, induced apoptosis, and bound to androgen receptors used by the tumor to sustain growth. When serum taken from a man who was supplementing with pygeum extract was applied to prostate cells in culture, it decreased proliferation of prostate cells and upregulated genes involved in tumor suppression. 

Boswellia extract:
When an extract of Boswellia serrata is applied to cultured prosate-cancer cells, it induces apoptosis. Research showed that Boswellia components may prevent tumor growth by blocking receptors for androgen, the male hormone, and by inhibiting the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) which further deprives tumors of nutrients. 

Scientists demonstrated that flaxseed lowers PSA levels and significantly reduces proliferation of both normal and cancerous prostate cells. In a clinical study, flaxseed reduced tumor proliferation rates in prostate cancer patients in as few as 30 days. 

Men with the highest dietary boron intakes have a 54% lower risk of prostate cancer compared to those with the lowest intake. Boron blocks growth factors necessary for tumor development and inhibits the enzymatic action of PSA. Human prostate cancers implantedin mice were smaller by 38% following low-dose boron supplementation while serum PSA levels fell 89%.
