Quercetin is a natural substance belonging to a class of water-soluble plant pigments called flavonoids. It can be found in red wine, onions, apples and green tea. Smaller amounts are also found in leafy green vegetables and beans.
- Quercetin and Prostate Health
- Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland and is a condition that afflicts millions of men. Sometimes it presents as an acute bacterial infection and can be effectively treated with antibiotcs. But often times it is chronic and nonbacterial. In these cases, treatment with antibiotcs is ineffective.
- Nonbacterial chronic prostatitis affects an estimated 30 million men in the United States. Its chief symptom is chronic urogenital pain, and it is believed to impact quality of life as dramatically, as myocardial infarction and Crohn disease do. Its etiology is poorly understood, and standard antibiotic treatments have offered limited success.
- Dr. Daniel Shoskes MD and a team of researchers from UCLA have studied the use of quercetin in preclinical studies with kidney transplants. Their findings led them to conduct additional studies of quercetin, including the impact it might have on chronic nonbacterial prostatitis patients.
- Dr. Shoskes said "Chronic prostatitis is an enormous problem in our country and around the world. It's one of the most common reasons why men visit urologists, and it's one of the most discouraging conditions doctors face, because often times there's very little we can do to alleviate the pain."
- The research team concluded their study early and said their results certainly merited additional research.
DIM (diindolylmethane) is a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale.
- DIM inhibits the production of aromatase (an enzyme which converts testosterone to estrogen).
- supports prostate health
- DIM supports a more efficient aerobic metabolism of estrogens.
- promotes an increased level of "good" estrogen metabolites (2-hydroxyestrogen) while reducing the level of "bad" estrogen metabolites (16-hydroxyestrogen).
- D.I.M. is formed from its precursor indole, Indole-3-carbinol (I3C), after the enzymatic release of I3C from parent glucosinolates found in all cruciferous vegetables.
- DIM is twice as strong as 13C
- You would have to eat two (4) pounds of cruciferous vegetables to get the same amount of DIM contained in two capsules of Estrogen Balance®
DIM provides the following health benefits:
- promotes healthy estrogen
- promotes cardiovascular health
- promotes brain health
- promotes healthy cell growth
- in men it supports prostate health
- in women it supports breast, cervical and uterine health
Contrary to common belief, not all dietary fat is bad. In fact some fats are not only "good" but "essential", meaning that the body can not synthesize them. These Essential Faty Acids (EFAs) are polyunsaturated and classified as Omega-3's and Omega-6's. "Essential" fats are only good if taken in the proper balance. Most of us ingest too much omega-6's and very little (if any) omega-3's.
One of the best sources of omega-3 is Flaxseed. Flax is an ancient crop, native to Eurasia. Its first recorded use comes from Babylon -- about 3000 B.C. There, it was cultivated for food. It also was used to make a fabric used in clothing. Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician called the "father of medicine," wrote extensively about flaxseed. And, the greatest of all medieval kings, Charlemagne, considered flax so important that he passed laws requiring its consumption.
Nutrition researchers have identified several substances in flaxseed that are thought to be the most important: lignans, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids:
Lignans are phytoestrogens that are thought to bind to estrogen receptors in the body. Although lignans are found in most unrefined grains (barley, buckwheat, millet and oats), soybeans, and some vegetables (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and spinach), flaxseed is the richest source. Flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber (about 28 grams total fiber per 100 grams of flaxseed). About one-third of the fiber is soluble.
The remaining two-thirds of the fiber in flaxseed is insoluble. Insoluble fiber may help support healthy digestion by increasing bulk, reducing the time that waste remains in the body and preventing constipation.
Flaxseed also is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) that is both an essential fatty acid and an omega-3 fatty acid.
Researchers are very interested in studying flaxseed. The American Institute for Cancer Research has recently funded a study testing the effects on lignans and breast tumor development in humans. There are numerous studies underway, where researchers are looking at the role omega-3 fatty acids may play in infant growth and development, heart disease and stroke and immune and inflammatory disorders as well.
Flaxseed and Hot Flashes in Women
A Mayo Clinic study is invetigating the effect flaxseed may have on hot flashes in postmenopausal women who do not take estrogen.
A hot flash is often described as a flush of intense warmth across much of the body that may be accompanied by sweating, reddening of the skin, or, occasionally, cold shivers. Hot flashes occur in varying frequency and duration, even during sleep, and often cause or accompany sleep deprivation, anxiety and irritability.
"Hot flashes are a bothersome issue for women experiencing menopause," says Sandhya Pruthi, M.D., Mayo Clinic breast health specialist and the study's primary investigator. "We hope to find more effective nonhormonal options to assist women, and flaxseed looks promising."
Although until recently, hormone replacement therapy was the most commonly prescribed treatment for hot flashes, unwanted side effects have led to the search for non-hormonal solutions. Several effective non-hormonal drug therapies have been identified, but they are not always effective, and not all women can use them because of side effects. These limitations have led researchers to explore non-drug agents.
They have studied a variety of herbal and dietary supplements in randomized, placebo-controlled trials, including vitamin E, black cohosh and soy, but none has shown to produce any significant reduction in frequency or severity of hot flashes.
The 29 participants in Mayo's clinical trial were women with bothersome hot flashes who did not want to take acidic estrogen because of an increased risk of cancerous breasts. They also had not received (in the preceding four weeks) antineoplastic chemotherapy, androgens, hormonal agents, or other herbal supplements, including soy.
Participants were asked questions that the researchers translated into a hot flash score -- a combined measure of frequency and severity.
- Flaxseed is nature's best source of omega-3 oils.
- Flax oil is a better source of omega-3 oils than fish oils.
- Flax seed is more nutritious than Flax oil because it contains lignans, that flax oil does not contain.
- Flaxseed may improve the absorption of both quercetin and D.I.M.
