Natural Anti Prolactin Support is an exclusive formulation combining every substance that has been scientifically demonstrated as completely safe and clinically active for lowering elevated prolactin levels.
Prolactin is a peptide hormone secreted by lactotropic cells in the anterior pituitary. Comprising 199 amino acids, it has a similar structure to that of growth hormone. Prolactin binds to specific membrane receptors (mammary glands, ovaries, uterus, testes ...) and has multiple properties:
Prolactin is regulated by dopamine which inhibits its release, PRH (prolactin-releasing hormone) and TRH (thyrotropin-releasing hormone) which stimulate its production in the same way as estrogen – by reducing dopamine secretion and acting directly on the pituitary gland. Orgasm increases the release of prolactin the effect of which can be felt for several hours.
A relatively rare condition, hypoprolactinaemia produces a loss of libido which may be accompanied by fatigue, depression and weight gain. It is usually caused by ingestion of, most commonly, dopamine agonist substances (dopamine, GABA, bromocriptine). While prolactin has health benefits, it does however have negative effects in both men and women, particularly when present at excessive levels. Hyperprolactinaemia is indeed a more common problem. Excess prolactin may be due to a variety of factors: pituitary adenomas, psychotropic drugs or dopamine antagonists (domperidone). Symptoms include:
Taking Natural Anti Prolactin Support will help prevent these problems, without causing the side-effects seen with some pharmaceutical products prescribed for such conditions (bromocriptine, cabergoline). In particular, these include negative effects on cardiovascular health, blood pressure and sleep due to decreased melatonin
Natural vitamin E is called d-alpha tocopherol, but studies now show it is better to consume the full vitamin E spectrum – ie, all the natural tocopherols -– the antioxidant properties of which are widely acknowledged. A recent study showed that a high dose of natural tocopherols, such as that in Natural Anti Prolactin Support, lowered prolactin levels by almost 70%.
Like all B group vitamins, vitamin B6 has many functions within the body. It improves mood and plays a role in maintaining normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels. But it is also essential for testosterone production and particularly for reducing levels of prolactin, through modulation of dopamine receptors in the hypothalamus in both men and women, while increasing levels of growth hormone, especially during physical exercise.
Vitamin B6 is also directly linked to the action of zinc and a number of studies have shown that zinc deficiency increases levels of prolactin. Zinc plays an important role in hormone homeostasis, interacting with the majority of hormones. This includes, in particular, those of the pituitary gland such as prolactin - known to stimulate unwelcome production of dihydrotestosterone – on which zinc has an inhibitory effect. These nutrients are combined with four plant extracts, highly concentrated in active substances, to significantly lower elevated prolactin levels:
