Can Zinc Supplement Cure Prostatitis?

The role of zinc which plays in the prostate has been paid more and more attention in recent years, it has been found that there is a strong antimicrobial factor (paf) in the prostatic fluid of healthy men, which can kill common urogenital tract pathogenic bacteria and protect the prostate from bacterial infection. Now, it has been proved that paf is a zinc compound with low molecular weight, heat stability, and inactivation by serum.

Zinc is a trace element, and there is only a small amount of them in the human body. However, the prostate is one of the organs with much more zinc content than the other organs. The content of zinc in the seminal plasma is 100 times higher than that in plasma, in the prostatic fluid of chronic prostatitis patients, zinc content is 50 mg/ml, which was significantly lower than that of healthy men(350 mg/ml). 
However, it has been decided that whether it is that zinc deficiency in the body leads to prostatitis or infection leads to a decrease in zinc content. Most scholars believe that zinc may be a natural defense substance in the prostate, which can prevent the occurrence of ascending infections. Therefore, the use of oral zinc preparation or in vitro iontophoresis to introduce zinc ions into prostatic tissue can get a certain treatment effect.
Effect of Zinc supplementation on Non-liquefied semen
In addition, studies have shown that fertility disorders in some male patients are related to the lack of trace elements, especially zinc, which is not only involved in sperm composition but also closely related to the birth, development, and maturation of sperm.
Zinc is directly proportional to the quality and density of semen. Lack of zinc can affect sperm metabolism and vitality, thus affecting testicular development. When zinc is insufficient, it directly causes damage to the prostate tissue. Semen contains one-third of the prostatic fluid, which also leads to poor liquefaction of semen, reduces sperm vitality, and thus affects the process of fertilization.
Non-liquefaction of semen is a common cause of male infertility, and there are various reasons for non-liquefaction of semen, one of which is the lack of trace element zinc. Therefore, experts suggest that whether there is an infection or not, males should supplement trace element zinc to prevent and treat non-liquefaction of semen.
Adult men need about 15 mg of zinc per day, but since the amount absorbed is usually less than the supplement, it is best to supplement more than 15 mg per day. Generally speaking, zinc supplementation can be divided into two ways: one is oral zinc preparation, the other is to eat zinc-containing foods, such as seafood, sesame, peanuts, apples, bananas and so on.
In addition to the trace element zinc, there are some supplements for prostatitis also have a very good adjuvant treatment effect.
