Product Knowledge: Equolibrium
Hawthorne BerriesThis supplement shows great promise as an effective natural remedy for BPH (Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy).
Most drugs and herbs for BPH work by blocking the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. Unfortunately, this enzyme is also involved in numerous other body processes, so inhibiting it can have unwanted effects. Research shows equol has the ability to bind to DHT and block its ability to bond to receptor sites in the prostate and stimulate prostate growth. It also binds to certain types of estrogen receptors, which blocks the adverse effects of excess estrogens. It does all this without interfering with normal testosterone metabolism. Some research suggests that an excess of a special form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is to blame and many remedies, both herbal and medical, focus on this issue.

Effects on Prostatitis and Cancer
Besides helping with BPH, equol may also have benefits in reducing prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). It may also reduce the risk of prostate cancer (malignant neoplasms or carcinoma of the prostate). Cancers of the breast, prostate and uterus are often estrogen-dependent, meaning estrogen stimulates their growth. Certain phyotoestrogen compounds in plants, including the flavones from soy and the lignans from flax-seed appear to bind estrogen receptors and reduce the estrogen-stimulating effects. Equol may have this benefit.

This week's Topic: Andropause and the decline of testosterone level in men

Every healthy male will experience a decrease in the production of testosterone, the "male" hormone, as he ages.

This decline in testosterone is gradual, spanning ten to fifteen years on average. While the gradual decrease of testosterone does not display the profound effects that a woman's menopause does, the end results are similar.

They are lethargy (feeling that you have no energy), loss of muscle mass and strength, increased fat and loss of libido (sexual drive). Until recently, this male phenomenon has been virtually ignored. The onset of symptoms is gradual and can be vague, and therefore can be easily missed.
