Everything we do at SelenoExcell is with one thing in mind: improving the health and wellness of others. For men, that means helping reduce the incidence of prostate cancer through selenium supplements and living a healthy life. More than 30 million men suffer from prostate conditions, which negatively affect their quality of life. Explore our studies to learn more about the correlation between selenium and cancer and find recommendation for healthy living.

DR. GEO'S ADVICE FOR A HEALTHY PROSTATE

REDUCE OXIDATIVE STRESS

Free radicals love a stressed out, poorly nourished environment and no matter how hard we try, life has a way of getting in the way of good intentions. That is why it is essential that you do everything you can to slow the development of oxidative stress. The body needs a broad spectrum of nutrients to squelch the damaging effects of free radicals. That’s why the research behind SelenoExcell is so compelling. SelenoExcell consists of three types of selenium supplements: selenomethionine, selenocysteine and methylselenocysteine, which could very likely account for its anti-carcinogenic activity and ability to reduce oxidative stress. 

Excercise

About 3-4 hours per week of moderate to vigorous activity. It could be running, jogging, power-walking, rowing, tennis, cycling—anything that makes you sweat. You might not like it, but give it time. Our bodies can get used to anything; getting used to it is the hard part. Avid exercisers find it difficult to sit still; sedentary people find it difficult to get moving. It is only a matter of building habits. If you are over the age of 60 and find it difficult to exercise at all, Dr. Geo recommends 15 minutes a day of moderate exercise as the bare minimum. But if you are looking to lose weight, develop muscle tone, or reduce your risk of prostate cancer, it is going to take a bit more.

Be A Polyphenol Fanatic

The foods you want to load up on are berries (organic if you can), green tea (about 6 cups a day), beans (great in salads), grapes, pomegranates, onions, cucumbers and pineapples. Basically, eat a ton of fresh fruits and vegetables, plus coffee or green tea. Countless polyphenols, from Anacardic acid (mangoes) to Proanthocyanidins (apple peel) have a strong foundation in the literature that supports their potential for not only cancer prevention but for the prevention of other diseases as well. No, you don’t have to know all of them, but you do have to eat all of them.

Clamour for Cruciferous

Broccoli, broccoli sprouts, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage—what do these four greens have in common? They’re all reliable sources of a chemical called sulforaphane, which is shown to decrease the risk of certain cancers in surprising ways. Evidence suggests that this chemical can repair important genes, that if left damaged, can lead to cancer.

Keep It Up

To stay healthy and sexually active, keep up to date on your health’s vital signs and warnings, visit your doctor and listen to the people you love when it comes to healthy lifestyle habits.
