Prostatitis is a common disease in the genitourinary system of men. Prostatitis symptoms include painful urination, urgent and frequent urination, burning and discomfort in the urethra, etc. White secretions often flow out of the urethra after urination. 
The occurrence of this disease often has a serious impact on the normal life and work of the patients. For the treatment, the key is to treat symptomatically and figure out the real cause of prostatitis. Some people think that prostatitis can be improved by eating more foods containing zinc. 

So, can zinc supplementation cure prostatitis?
As a trace element necessary for the human body, zinc is important for the human body. If a male is deficient in zinc for a long time, it will be easier to suffer from prostatitis. The content of trace element zinc in prostatic fluid or semen is significantly higher than other organs or body fluids. The zinc content in normal prostatic fluid or semen is about 100 times that in plasma, indicating that prostate tissue cells can take the initiative from plasma or tissue intake of zinc ions. The content of normal prostate fluid is significantly higher in zinc than that of patients with prostatitis.
The zinc content is related to the anti-infection ability of the prostate. The reduction of zinc content reduces the defense mechanism of prostate inflammation, and the antibacterial power also decreases. In addition, zinc, as an activator of various enzyme systems, can effectively activate enzymes that resist oxidative stress. When the body is deficient in zinc, its own antibacterial ability will decrease, which will easily cause infection of the reproductive and urinary system.
Zinc supplementation is indeed good for prostatitis and can be used as an adjuvant treatment, but it cannot cure prostatitis. The compound containing zinc in the human prostate is an antibacterial substance, also called an antibacterial factor of the prostate. Therefore, proper zinc supplementation is helpful to improve prostatitis. Patients with prostatitis can appropriately supplement some zinc while using medications, and can take zinc supplements orally. Zinc can enhance treatment, anti-bacteria, sterilize and diminish inflammation. In addition, in addition to zinc supplementation, patients with prostatitis should also develop good eating and living habits. Sexual life should be avoided during treatment.
The most basic treatment of prostatitis is anti-inflammatory treatment. TCM Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be used for anti-inflammation and treatment. Diuretic Anti-inflammatory Pill can effectively treat prostatitis without side effects and drug resistance. Patients with prostatitis should not eat spicy food. Avoid congestion of the sex organs, aggravate constipation or hemorrhoids, and make it more difficult to urinate after the prostate is compressed.
The above article has introduced some treatments for prostatitis. From the introduction, it’s known that zinc supplementation does not necessarily cure prostatitis. Because the patient’s condition has a certain degree of particularity, it should be treated adhere to symptomatic treatment, so as to have obvious therapeutic effects. It is recommended that patients perform correct treatment under the guidance of a doctor and develop a good attitude during treatment.
