Reflex Linum Life Flaxseed Extract (120 Caps) If you are worried about hair loss or problems with your prostate then read on, we might have an answer. Both of these problems are dierctly associated with Testosterone. Testosterone is a hormone partially responsible for muscle growth, & generally accepted to contribute to muscle strength, lean body mass, energy production & endurance. 95-98% of a mans testosterone level is bound by sex hormone binding proteins (SHBG) & other circulating proteins. Once free from SHBG, testosterone can be easily converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is DHT that is believed to be directly responsible for baldness & BPH. With hairloss, the rate of hair shedding is accelerated up by an over-abundance of DHT within the hair follicle. The conversion from testosterone to DHT is driven by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, which is produced in the prostate, various adrenal glands, & the scalp. Over time, the action of DHT causes the hair follicle to degrade & shorten the anagen phase. In a similar way DHT can bind to prostate tissue causing irregular growth, & in latter years BPH or prostate cancer. The goods news is that there is now a very new, natural product, which might help combat DHT. It is called Linumlife & it contains a group of plant chemicals called lignans that are derived from Flax. In scientific studies, lignans from flax are reported to have an influence on testosterone metabolism through three mechanisms: the inhibition of 5-alpha reductase the inhibition of aromatase the inhibition of 17ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. 5a-reductase The 5a-reductase enzyme converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Lignans inhibits 5a-reductase by selectively & irreversibly binding with 5a-reductase, & thereby block conversion of testosterone to DHT. Enterolactone is found to inhibit 5a-reductase up to 80%(1). Aromatase Lignans inhibit aromatase, a cytochrome P450 enzyme(2). Aromatase is responsible for the alternative conversion of testosterone to 17ß-estradiol. 17ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 17ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17ß-OHSD) is another steroid-metabolizing enzyme present in tissue. 17ß-OHSD converts testosterone to androstenedione & estrogens. Lignans demonstrate to be potent inhibitors of 17ß-OHSD. Anti-oxidant effect In addition to these regulating effects on the metabolism of testosterone, SDG, Enterolactone & Enterodiol are potent antioxidants. They scavenge reactive oxygen species, like O2-, H2O2, -OH. Promotes a favourable intestinal environment. The fiber fraction in flax is preserved in Linum Life. It is composed of soluble & insoluble fibers, & reported to play a beneficial role in gut microflora. Colonic bacteria influence the conversion of SDG to enterolactone & enterodiol. Moreover, soluble fiber has shown to have cholesterol-lowering properties(3). Reflex Linum Life
