Androgen Balance (for Hair & Prostate) 60 Capsules
Prostate enlargement can affect several factors of men’s health, including urinary flow and overall prostate health. Testosterone, its potent metabolite dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and estrogen are hormones that affect the prostate gland. Testosterone is converted into estrogen via the enzyme aromatase. Aromatase levels increase as men age resulting in a subsequent decline in testosterone levels and increased estrogen production. Testosterone is also converted to its more potent form, DHT, via the enzyme known as 5-alpha-reductase. The combination of increased estrogen levels along with elevated DHT is thought to be a key factor in enlargement of the prostate gland. Natural aromatase inhibitors and botanicals that prevent increased DHT and estrogen levels are included in Androgen Balance to help support healthy urinary flow, hormone metabolism and overall prostate health.
Androgen Balance includes herbs and trace minerals that work in synergy to support healthy prostate function. Saw palmetto extract, stinging nettles root extract, and pygeum bark extract each support prostate health in unique ways and work together to support healthy urinary flow, urination frequency, and maintain a balanced cycle of inflammation in the prostate. Prostatrol Forte includes a potent, standardized extract of saw palmetto, a 16:1 extract of stinging nettles root, and a standardized dried extract of the bark from Pygeum africanum, as well as chelated form of zinc, copper and selenium to support healthy prostate function.

Saw Palmetto† The fat-soluble extract of the fruit of the saw palmetto tree, (Sabal serrulata) native to Florida, has been extensively researched for its ability to support prostate health. In a meta-analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials involving 2,939 men, saw palmetto had significant benefits, promoting normal urinary flow, nighttime urinary frequency, and peak urine flow rate.4 In a six-month, double-blind, randomized trial of 1,098 patients, saw palmetto supported healthy prostate scores, peak urinary flow rate, and promoted healthy sexual function.
Stinging Nettles Root Extract† (Urtica dioca) is a perennial plant that grows abundantly and has been used in traditional medicine in Europe and Asia. Multiple active compounds in nettles root, including lignans and trihydroxyoctadecenoic acids, have been shown to support prostate health.6 A double-blind placebo-controlled trial demonstrated that stinging nettles root reduced sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) levels in men.7 SHBG, a protein produced primarily in the liver, serves as a transport carrier shuttling estrogen and testosterone to sex hormone receptors throughout the body. With aging, SHBG levels can rise, even though the production of hormones continues to decline. Elevated SHBG traps free testosterone creating hormone shifts that negatively impact prostate gland health. In addition to reducing SHBG levels, nettles root has been shown to block the SHBG receptor, preventing an increase in hormone receptor activity.8 Due to its broad spectrum of effects on hormone balance and prostate health, nettles root extract helps maintain normal prostate growth and size.
