The basics of how to improve your Testosterone

There is an interesting supplement that is particularly of interest to men, who are over 40 years old and men who may have elevated cholesterol, men who suffer from prostate troubles and who wish to maybe improve the beneficial levels of testosterone. The all natural product may actually do more than the sizable list above, the supplement is called Phytosterols.

The organic science behind Phytosterols

Phytosterols hold a certain magic with scientific blessings.

Phytosterols are a family of plant fats. You may recognize “sterol” as part of what we humans struggle with having too much of namely cholesterol. The good thing is that plants product a slightly different version that competes for absorption in our stomachs with animal cholesterol. So when we supplement with the plant version the absorption of the animal version is reduced in many people. You’ll often see plant sterols as additives to heart healthy margarine at the grocery store for this very reason. Scientific studies have shown lowered cholesterol levels and improved lipid panels in people in both men and women.

Phytosterols, which encompass plant sterols and stanols, are steroid compounds similar to cholesterol which occur in plants and vary only in carbon side chains and/or presence or absence of a double bond. Stanols are saturated sterols, having no double bonds in the sterol ring structure. More than 200 sterols and related compounds have been identified. Free phytosterols extracted from oils are insoluble in water, relatively insoluble in oil, and soluble in alcohols.

Phytosterol-enriched foods and dietary supplements have been marketed for decades. Despite well documented LDL cholesterol lowering effects, no scientifically proven evidence of any beneficial effect on cardiovascular disease (CVD) or overall mortality exists.

For men, the neat thing is that there is also evidence phytosterols help shrink the prostate in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPS). Remember the TV ad of “I thought I had a problem of going, but my doctor told me it was a problem growing”? Supplementing with even a low dose of plant sterols helps many middle aged and older men. At higher doses up to 6000 mg/day it may actually lower cholesterol, shrink the prostate and help improve the good testosterone older men tend to have less of.

The Phytosterols and Testosterone correlation

Good testosterone is the higher octane male hormone. Testosterone is produced not only in smaller amounts as we age but a significant amount of it becomes “bound” and the octane lowers to kerosine. This is called DHT. This causes hair loss, weight gain, soft belly and a lot of couch potato behavior as well as sexual dysfunction. Often men with pre-diabetes have too little high octane testosterone as well. Phytosterols are thought to reduce the amount of DHT so the proportion of high octane hormone improves. Some anti-aging benefits can also occur.

Cholesterol lowering powers of Phytolsterols

Beginning with a Phytosterols supplement is a great start for you men out there who have the issues mentioned above.  Phytolsterols were first proven to significantly reduce cholesterol levels in humans as early as 1953! They were subsequently marketed as a pharmaceutical under the name Cytellin as a treatment for elevated cholesterol from 1954-1982.

Unlike the statins, where cholesterol lowering has been proven to reduce CVD risk and overall mortality under well-defined circumstances, no such effect has ever been documented with phytosterol-enriched foods or phytosterol OTC medications. While cholesterol lowering was frequently used as a surrogate endpoint for beneficial effects on CVD, examples exist where specific medications for cholesterol lowering were found to have no significant effect on clinical endpoints, such as with ezetimibe.

These statements have not been approved by the FDA and are in no way a substitute for medical advice from your health doctor or personal physician. Please check with your doctor before beginning any new supplement. That is always sound medical advice.
