    Alphastat- Saw Palmetto/Astaxanthin combo

    Just posting this for the info. I don't use anything like this myself.

    "Triarco Industries, Inc. announces very encouraging results of a pilot clinical trial for their patented product AlphastatŪ, which inhibits 5-alpha reductase. The three-month study on male patients ages 55-68 reported a 17% decrease in Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), and a 40% decrease in dehydrotestosterone (DHT), indicating a rise in total testosterone in these subjects.

    Urogenital symptoms including increased urgency to urinate, reduced urinary stream and nocturia decreased in 80% of the patients. There were two reports of increased sexual function with one report of an increase in spontaneous erections after not having experienced erections approximately 15 years.

    Negative side effects of pharmaceutical treatments for elevated PSA and DHT may include hypotension, sexual dysfunction and reduced libido. There were no reports of any negative side effects in this study and no reports of any compliance issues.

    We are very pleased with the results of this clinical study because it confirms the results of the pre-clinical studies and is, to our knowledge, the first natural product shown to lower PSA and DHT levels in humans."

    I just ordered this shizzle.
    Ever since I dropped SP 6 months ago my hairloss has increased. It's the
    only blocker I have ever used. I guess I shouldn't have
    dropped it. Now I am using Nano, a multi, and Niz...we'll
    see what happens now that I am adding SP again. I lost a full NW over the past year...from a 1.5 to a 2.5. I am 35 yo.

    It's pretty cheap. I can sit here and watch the hairs continue to fall, or I can add something new. What the heck? I even had some of the same sides as Prop users, so there must be something to it.

    I remember when I used to use saw palmetto extract, it made my ejaculate watery and made me horny too. I do remember SP extract did tend to make my face less oily, so it was beneficial to acne I guess.

    i take sp...just added saw palmetto extract in liquid form to use topically in my regimen....that way if it doesnt work on the dht in the body and only concentrates in the prostate...at least by putting it on my scalp it will do something to the dht up there as well

    Sounds like a good theory. By the way, where do you get your saw palmetto extract in liquid form? I wonder if you could get beta -sitosterol in liquid form? :?

    I did read somewhere that SP does "not" lower serum DHT in the body. It must work in a different fashion to help the prostate.
