Excessive levels of Di-Hydro Testosterone (DHT) is now recognized as the the main cause of male hair loss. DHT is created by the action of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase on normal testosterone and levels increase with age. Beta-sitosterol is a natural 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor and may help slow and/or reverse hair loss by reducing DHT levels in the body.
Beta sitosterol has been clinically shown to both decrease LDL cholesterol as well as lower triglyceride levels. Beta-sitosterol is also an excellent adjunctive therapy to chelation as it has been shown to decrease the fatty component of atherosclerotic plaque.
In nature, the inflammation pathway is controlled through the fats and oils in our diet. Certain oils and fats increase inflammation and others decrease it. Both saw palmetto and pumpkin seed extracts have been shown to support decreased inflammation via inhibition of the COX and lipoxygenase pathways.
While saw palmetto is well known for its beneficial effects on the prostate, it also has a long history of being used for female disorders. Herbalists have used saw palmetto to support women’s bodies in resolving issues associated with fertility, milk flow, libido, menstrual irregularities, fluid retention and pelvic inflammatory conditions for centuries.
