But in the recent year’s scientist confirm that the seeds also contain a chemical called as cucurbitacins that prevent the male sex hormone testosterone into a related compound dihydrotestosterone which is known to stimulate prostrate cell proliferation.
Pumpkin seeds also contain zinc which is also known to reduce the size of prostrate.

3] Saw palmetto: {Serenoa repens}

Saw palmetto is a small palm tree that grows in south eastern states of United States like Florida. The Seminole Indian tribe that used to stay around those area ate the seeds of this palm in regular diet as they worked really great to flush the urine. This know how soon passed to the other inhabitants of the states.
In one clinical study involving more than 200 German with BPH a daily dose of one or two grams of saw palmetto seeds produced substantial easing in the symptoms. The action of the seeds is because of a compound present that in it that inhibits the action of enzyme testosterone-5-alpha-reductase.
