Product indicated for prostate health based on 350 mg of Sterolic Lipid extract of Serenoa Repens in association with Pygeum Africanum
The Bark of Pygeum Africanum has an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in the symptomatic treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy. The most significant constituents present in its lipophilic extract include phytosterols (β-sitosterol is the most representative), fatty acids (including myristic, palmitic, linoleic, oleic, stearic and arachidonic), triterpenoids (ursolic acid, oleanolic acid etc.) and alcohols (docosanol etc.). It is also an inhibitor of the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase and this effect could give to this “plant drug” a preventive and therapeutic role in the presence of benign prostatic hypertrophy.
Serenoa Repens is now widely used in the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy. Its active ingredients (triglycerides, phytosterols, sitosterol derivatives, flavonoids) have an antiandrogenic properties, which are exercised directly on the dihydrotestosterone receptors, and indirectly, through inhibition of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme.
Pumpkin seeds contain betasterols structurally similar to androgens and estrogens. These substances are useful for lowering cholesterol levels and improving the symptoms of prostatic hypertrophy, an effect that seems to be related in part to the ability to inhibit the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, and in part to the obstacle offered towards the bond between androgen receptors and dihydrotestorone. This substance is a hormone derived from testosterone thanks to the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which is also involved in the hyperproliferation of prostate cells. The daily consumption of pollen allows to heal serious prostatitis, resistent to any form of treatment.
