    Saw Palmetto for Hair Loss 

    saw palmetto quupSaw palmetto has had good clinical trial results as a remedy for men’s prostate problems for years now, but lately it’s been getting a lot of attention for another reason entirely – and that’s as a remedy for hair loss.

    It’s being used with success for a particular type of baldness called androgenic alopecia, or male- and female-pattern baldness, which shows typically the greatest at the top of the head or around the temples.

    Similarly to finasteride (the active ingredient in the pharmaceutical hair loss products Propecia and Proscar), studies have shown that when taken orally saw palmetto is believed to block the production of the hormone or DHT (dihydrotestosterone).

    DHT is a common factor in causing both hair loss and BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).

    Hair Loss Trial Results

    A small preliminary study in 2002 was performed as reported by The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (2002;8:143-52) that shows a select group of 19 men between the ages of 23 and 64 taking either (400mg of saw palmetto and 100mg of Beta-sitosterol) or a placebo orally.

    Those who took the herbal combination had 60% improved hair growth over those who took the placebo.  There have been no studies to date indicating the efficacy of saw palmetto applied topically for male pattern baldness, female hair loss, or anything to date.

    Although promising, the study was too small to provide meaningful evidence.

    Many popular hair loss treatment options today such as Provillus, Procerin, and Avacor contain the “active” ingredient saw palmetto.  It can also be purchased as a standalone supplement in most nutritional stores.

    Saw Palmetto Dosage

    Clinical studies on Benign Prostrate Hyperplasia (BPH) have used a dosage of 320mg of the berry extract daily (either one 320mg pill or 2 X 160 mg pill).

    A daily dosage of 480 mg of saw palmetto berry extract was not found to be any more effective in a six-month study.  If the entire berry was used, up to 1000mg or 2000mg would be required to reach the same goal.

    The theory therefore is that if saw palmetto can successfully treat an enlarged prostate similarly to finasteride, it can effectively treat hair loss with a similar dosage.

    Many popular “baldness cure” products contain approximately 1500mg of the berry which is equivalent to approximately 240-320mg of the berry extract.

    Saw Palmetto Side Effects

    Avoid If…
    No known medical conditions preclude the use of Saw Palmetto. However, because of the herb’s hormonal effects, caution is advisable if you have any form of cancer that’s stimulated by hormones.

    Special Cautions
    At recommended dosage levels, side effects are rare. A few stomach complaints have been reported.

    Possible Drug Interactions
    Check with your doctor if you are taking any hormonal medications or adrenergic drugs such as the asthma medications Alupent, Brethine, Proventil, and Ventolin. Your dosage may need adjustment.

    People with bleeding disorders or who are taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet medications (“blood-thinners”)–such as warfarin (Coumadin), aspirin, or clopidogrel (Plavix)–should avoid taking saw palmetto unless under medical supervision. It should also be avoided at least two weeks before and after surgery.

    Saw Palmetto Herbal Supplement

    Quup Herbal supplement containing saw palmetto, lycopene from tomatoes, selenium and zinc is an excellent nutritional support for hair loss and men’s prostate health. If your sleep is regularly interrupted by midnight trips to the bathroom, if you find you have an urge to urinate and then when you get there you can’t start the flow, Saw Palmetto in Quup is likely to be of benefit.  See the Quup website for more information and to order.

    Saw Palmetto for Prostate Health 

    saw palmettoSaw palmetto is a remarkable herb becoming famous for its uses in hair restoration and prostate health, particularly for relieving urinary discomfort caused by an enlarged prostate (BPH).

    Saw Palmetto’s popularity has been on an extraordinary roller coaster ride throughout the 20th century. Widely used under the name “Serenoa” until World War II, it was then completely forgotten until its rediscovery in the 90’s.

    Now it’s being evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of BPH. If approved, it would become the first herbal product to be licensed by the agency as a treatment for a specific condition.

    Benefits for Enlarged Prostate

     

    There is much scientific documentation outlining the effectiveness of the herb in treating irritable bladder and urinary problems in men with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), an enlargement of the prostate gland.

    BPH results in a swelling of the prostate gland that obstructs the urethra. This causes painful urination, reduced urine flow, difficulty starting or stopping the flow, dribbling after urination and more frequent night time urination.

    In addition to causing pain and embarrassment, BPH can lead to serious kidney problems if undiagnosed and left untreated. It is a common problem in men over the age of 40. Estimates are that 50-60% of all men will develop BPH in their lifetimes.

    Saw Palmetto Clinical Trials

    Since the 1960s, extensive clinical studies of saw palmetto have been done in Europe. A review of 24 European trials appeared in the November 1998 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The trials involved nearly 3,000 men, some taking saw palmetto, others taking Proscar and a third group taking a placebo.

    The men taking saw palmetto had a 28% improvement in urinary tract symptoms, a 24% improvement in peak urine flow and 43% improvement in overall urine flow. The results were nearly comparable to the group taking Proscar and superior to the men taking a placebo.

    Saw palmetto does not reduce prostate enlargement. Instead, it is thought to work in a variety of ways. First, it inhibits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). BPH is thought to be caused by an increase in testosterone to DHT. Secondly, saw palmetto is believed to interfere with the production of estrogen and progesterone, hormones associated with DHT production.

    In a controlled clinical trial with patients with enlarged prostate glands, 50 patients who received saw palmetto (320 mg per day – 4 tablets taken in two separate doses with meals) were compared to 44 patients receiving placebo. Patients treated with saw palmetto urinated less frequently, produced a better flow rate and amount of urine and had less pain and discomfort in urinating than control subjects. There were actually fewer adverse side effects in patients receiving saw palmetto than in controls.

    May Help Prevent Prostate Cancer

    Men who have taken Saw Palmetto for the purpose of treating BPH, have reported a reduction in painful urination, as well as minimized sensations of a full bladder. Some researchers believe this may be accomplished due to an anti-inflammatory ability of the plant to restrain hormones, such as testosterone. Testosterone is thought to contribute to multiplication of prostate cells.

    There has also been speculation that the plant may play a vital role in protecting men against the development of prostate cancer. The plant is a popular treatment for BPH, due to the fact that it is typically much lower priced than other medications, tends to work much more quickly, and is less likely to cause reduced sexual drive and impotence.

    It is also used to strengthen the thyroid gland, balance the metabolism, stimulate appetite and aid digestion.

    Avoid If…
    No known medical conditions preclude the use of Saw Palmetto. However, because of the herb’s hormonal effects, caution is advisable if you have any form of cancer that’s stimulated by hormones.

    Special Cautions
    At recommended dosage levels, side effects are rare. A few stomach complaints have been reported.

    Movember Madness 

    john keyTV3’s sports host Rod Cheeseman is in. Prime Minister John Key – though he says he’s in favour – won’t participate because he says his wife doesn’t like hairy men. But Bronagh, what’s not to like about our photo-shopped mo-wearing John Key? And we have to ask – would you date this man?

    We’re talking Movember, the annual, month-long celebration of the moustache, when thousands of men around NZ, Australia and now the world grow a moustache to highlight men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and depression.

    Mo Bros, supported by their Mo Sistas, start Movember (November 1st) clean shaven and then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache.

    Mo-Growing Online

    And this year Herbal Ignite’s general manager Sam Kamani has joined the fray with a mo-growing experiment we’ll track on line.

    Says Sam: “I’m quite enjoying my ‘motor-biker mo look’ even though my fiance hates it and is waiting for the days of Movember to finish.”

    During Movember, each Mo Bro effectively becomes a walking billboard for men’s health and, via their Mo, raises essential funds and awareness for Movember’s men’s health partners – The Cancer Society and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

    The idea for Movember came about in 2003 when a few mates were having a beer in a small bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Inspired by the women’s health movement, it was recognized that men were lacking a way to engage and actively involve themselves in their own health.

    During a conversation about fashion and past trends, the idea came up to bring the moustache back for one month, and in doing so, have some fun, raise a small amount of money and hopefully encourage men to talk about their health with each other.

    $60m Raised Globally

    Since this time, Movember has continued to grow each year, both in terms of participation numbers and funds raised. In its first year, 30 Mo Bros took part in Movember and since 2006, the first year in New Zealand, more than 50,000 people have participated and $4million has been raised for Movember’s Kiwi men’s health partners.

    Today, in its sixth consecutive year, Movember now take splace not just in Australasia but also in the US, Canada, UK and Ireland.

    To date, Movember has raised AUS$60 million globally for the fight against prostate cancer and depression in men. And, more importantly, as a direct result, male awareness of health issues has improved with Movember helping to spread health messages directly to millions of Mo Bros & Sistas around the world.

    Going forward, Movember will continue to work towards helping to change established habits and attitudes and make men aware of the risks they face, thereby increasing early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

    Herbals For Prostate Health

    A range of herbs have been shown to improve prostate health, but non more so than saw palmetto, a herb grown in the US and found in Herbal Quup (pronounced Kew Up) a supplement to help reduce those midnight trips to the bathroom caused by an enlarged prostate.

    Quup contains saw palmetto, lycopene from tomatoes, the red ingredient which has found to have a good preventive action against prostate cancer, as well as zinc and selenium, both good for sperm health.

    Extend Sex Life By Ten Years 

    exerciseA daily brisk walk, run or gym workout is looking increasingly attractive as the evidence supporting the benefits of working up a regular sweat continue to roll in. For middle aged men the pay off includes a longer active sex life and reduced risk of prostate cancer.

    Men who exercise 3-5 hours a week:

    • have 30% less risk of having erectile dysfunction (impotence)
    • have 70% less risk of developing prostate cancer – and of surviving it if they do develop it
    • can look forward to an additional ten years  of undiminished sex life

    Those are some of the conclusions from a tidal wave of surveys and studies conducted in the last five years.

    One of the largest, The Harvard Health Professionals Follow-up Study (HPFS) of over 31,000 men aged 53 – 90 who did not have prostate cancer is significant. One third of the men reported having erectile dysfunction in the previous three months.

    The risk goes up 5% a year after age 50. The study showed that regular exercise can mean ten more years free of erectile dysfunction for the average man.

    Lower Risk of Prostate Cancer

    The same study of 48,000 men over 14 years found that among those age 65 or older, those who exercised vigorously at least three hours a week had a 70 per cent lower risk of advanced or fatal prostate cancer.

    The study’s lead author, Edward Giovannucci, MD, ScD, says the findings suggest that regular vigorous physical activity could slow the progression of prostate cancer and might be recommended to reduce mortality from prostate cancer.

    Less Aggressive Disease

    A second study shows moderate amounts of exercise most days of the week may contribute to a lower risk of prostate cancer, and lower grade tumours among those men who are diagnosed with the disease following biopsy.

    Investigators found that men who regularly engaged in moderate activity — anything equivalent to walking at a moderate pace for several hours per week — were significantly less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and if they were, they were less likely to have aggressive disease, defined as a tumour with a Gleason score equal to or greater than 7.

    They assessed participants’ level of exercise with a questionnaire prior to the biopsy.

    Most Exercise Less Than an Hour a Week

    Most of the men fell far short of the American Heart Association guidelines for the minimal amount of exercise needed per week. Researchers found that a majority of the men (58 percent) were sedentary, meaning they exercised less than the equivalent of one hour per week of easy walking. Forty-six percent were moderately active; only 33 percent were very active.

    Investigators found that men who reported more hours per week of exercise were significantly less likely to have cancer on biopsy.

    More Exercise, Less Cancer Any amount of exercise was associated with a trend toward a lower risk of prostate cancer and as the amount of exercise increased, the risk of cancer decreased, says Jodi Antonelli, MD, a urology resident at Duke University Medical Center and the lead author of the study.

    Among men who were found to have cancer, even exercising as little as one hour per week of easy walking was associated with a lower risk of high-grade disease.

    Herbal Support for Prostate Health

    Herbs and supplements can offer real benefits for prostate health, including saw palmetto and lycopene, the tomato-based ingredient which has been found to be beneficial against prostate cancer. A nutritional supplement like Quup (pronounced Kew-up) with saw palmetto, lycopene, selenium and zinc is useful for mid life men experiencing urinary discomfort, or who simply want to give their prostate good support.

    However use of a supplement does not replace seeing your health professional for a full check of your prostate health. For more information check out What is Herbal Quup?

    Eating To Beat Prostate Cancer 

    eating healthyTake a step away from the barbecue this season if you’re an over-50-year-old man who wants to be kind to his prostate. That’s the message from a review of diet recommended for preventing prostate cancer.

    That’s not just because of potential carcinogens in the charred meat, but also because reducing intake of saturated fat and red meat , dairy and calcium, and increasing fruit and vegetables is most beneficial in preventing and treating prostate cancer.

    Researchers Robert W.-L. Ma and K. Chapman recommend eating lots of tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, drinking green tea, and supplementing with vitamins including Vitamin E and selenium, which they say seemed to decrease risk of prostate cancer.

    Japanese or Mediterranean Best

    Two ethnic cuisines – traditional Japanese diet high in green tea, soy, vegetables, and fish, and the Mediterranean – high in fresh fruits and vegetables, garlic, tomatoes, red wine, olive oil, and fish – have long been credited with longevity and reduced risks of prostate cancer.

    Combine those nutrition guidelines with exercise – research shows 30 minutes daily can slow prostate cell growth by 30 per cent – and you are making all the best choices for a long and healthy life.

    Recommended Supplements

    Vary diet as much as possible, and in addition:

    • Take a multivitamin with B complex and folic acid daily.
    • Avoid high-dose zinc supplements.
    • Avoid flax seed oil. This can stimulate prostate cancer to grow. You can obtain the very healthy alpha omega-3 fatty acids you need through fresh fish and nuts.
    • Use olive oil, which is very healthy and rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. Avocado oil is also good. Avoid oils high in polyunsaturated fats such as corn, canola, or soybean.
    • Take vitamin E, 50 to 100 IU of gamma and d-alpha, only with the approval of your doctor. Some recent studies have raised concerns over serious risks with vitamin E intake. Natural sources include nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocado oil, wheat germ, peas, and nonfat milk.
    • Selenium is a very powerful antioxidant and the backbone molecule of your body’s immune system. Most studies support a daily selenium supplement of 200 micrograms a day. The benefits appear to be only for those who have low selenium levels, which is difficult and expensive to measure. Since it only costs about 7 cents a day and is not toxic at these levels, it is reasonable for all men to take selenium. Natural sources include Brazil nuts, fresh fish, grains, mushrooms, wheat germ, bran, whole-wheat bread, oats, and brown rice.

    Saw Palmetto and Lycopene

    Prostate health can be enhanced with the herb saw palmetto and tomato extract lycopene found in herbal supplements like Quup. See What is Herbal Quup for more details and ordering options.

    Getting Real About Prostate Cancer 

    Prostate CancerBroadcaster, olive oil producer and P campaigner Paul Holmes has a simple prescription for getting the best out of life after prostate cancer; “Live to the full and laugh a lot.”

    Since he was diagnosed in 2003 with the cancer that affects as many men as breast cancer affects women, Paul has been a slightly reluctant poster boy for what he says is seen as an “old man’s disease.”

    But he says “it’s time men told other men they need to simply do one thing – get themselves checked.

    “The difference between breast and prostate cancer can be seen in the death rates; while breast cancer rates have declined in the last ten years, prostate cancer rates have risen.

    Life Changes After Cancer

    In a Sunday Herald column to mark the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s Blue September awareness campaign last year he noted: “Life changes after breast cancer, just as life changes after prostate cancer.

    “While women have gone out and made their sisters aware of breast cancer, men have failed to make their brothers as conscious of the dangers and prevalence of prostate cancer.”

    He says undoubtedly the biggest impact prostate cancer has had on his life is the prolonged and sometimes humiliating treatment required, and “the loss of sexual function, or indeed, any desire.”

    Says Paul: “After the hormone and radiation treatments, one ceases to even think about sex. Sexuality completely disappears. This would put strain on many a relationship, fortunately not on mine, though it changes things and you cease to wonder how it has.”

    Staying Alive Without Sex

    As Paul told New Idea; “It was a choice between staying alive and healthy and not having sex, or not having treatment. Well, the choice is a no-brainer, isn’t it?

    “But that doesn’t mean that a person is not still a man. You know, I’m still competitive, ambitious and professional. I still love my family. And there was only one priority – you have got to get that cancer out of your body. Everything else is secondary.”

    Paul and his wife Deborah had only just started living together when he was diagnosed, but they’ve weathered the storms and married a year later.

    They point out that not all men lose sexual ability, and there are several options available in assisting with restoring sexual function.

    Treatment Options

    The severity of the erectile dysfunction – and whether it is temporary or permanent – depends on the type of surgery, stage of cancer, and the type of treatment.

    One study shows erectile dysfunction rates of 66% for nerve-sparing prostatectomy versus 75% for non-nerve sparing surgery at one year after the surgery. The use of vacuum devices or drugs such as Viagra after surgery once the body has healed may improve the quality of erections and speed the return of normal sexual function.

    Loss of erectile function is the most common long-term complication of radiation therapy. But its occurrence decreases when more sophisticated treatments, like radioactive seed implants (brachytherapy), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), and 3-D conformal radiotherapy, are used.

    Men’s Awareness Growing

    Five years on from his diagnosis Paul says men are now much more aware about prostate cancer.

    “My own prostate cancer and the ensuring publicity might have helped a little. Certainly there is now much more knowledge and many men approach me for advice. Any cancer is freaky and worrying, but I sense there is no longer any reluctance to be open with others about prostate cancer.”

    If there was one thing he’d like to get across to NZ Prime Minister John Key it’s the need for a national campaign to alert men to the need to get prostate cancer checks annually.

    “Every time men get a blood test over the age of 40, the doctor should probably tick the box for a PSA test. Men have a responsibility to get themselves checked.”

    Keeping a Healthy Prostate

    A low-fat, high-fiber diet, reducing stress and getting regular exercise can all help safe guard prostate health, research shows. Dietary supplements like Quup, containing herbs like saw palmetto and active ingredients like lycopene (from tomatoes) can also be beneficial.

    Hot Herbs for Valentines 

    The quest for the perfect aphrodisiac is as long as human history, and yet many sex experts – Dr Ruth among them – still say the most important sex organ is located between the ears – as in “it’s all in your mind.”

    Chocolate, oysters, avocado and honey have all had their place as romance boosters in 5000 years of folklore, although 20 years ago the FDA poured a cold shower on the whole idea of libido lifters as “unscientific.”

    However as the baby boomers reach 60 and notice things ain’t what they used to be in the bedroom, many are discovering that centuries of human experience can’t be dismissed as simple “anecdote”. Natural enhancement has been around since man walked upright, and natural sex boosters are coming out of the closet.

    So here’s our pick of A Lover’s Dozen of Sex Boosting Herbs to add an extra spark to Valentines Day for men and women. For info on where you can find health products containing some of these herbs, go to http://www.herbalignite.com.

    Tribulus Terrestris

    A testosterone enhancer from Europe which works for both men and women (in women it helps with menopause symptoms). Lifts performance and libido.

    Damiana

    South America shrub induces a testosterone effect and was used by the ancient Mayans as an aphrodisiac drink. Scientific effects recorded over 100 years ago.

    Guarana

    A stimulant also known as Brazilian cocoa and a national beverage there. Guarana increases energy and libido, helps with weight loss, soothes nerves and fights free radicals.

    Ginseng

    Used by North American Indians as a general tonic to give extra energy and strength. (Daniel Boone used to pick wild ginseng and sell it in New York.) Widely used to improve overall energy and vitality, particularly during times of fatigue or stress. Beneficial for diabetics as studies show it normalizes glucose levels after meals.

    Gingko Biloba

    Counters impotence. Ultrasound examinations of 60 impotent men who took ginkgo biloba herb showed improved penile blood circulation after six weeks. After six months, 50% of the patients had regained potency. Many other benefits including increases blood flow to the brain, reduces risk of heart attacks and stroke. Good for treating complications from diabetes, particularly nerve damage and eye problems. Ginko biloba may put the pep back lost as a result of taking anti-depressants.

    Horny Goat Weed Herb

    A performance enhancer and a libido and energy booster for both men and women.

    Saw Palmetto

    Excellent herb for prostate health, sexual functioning and desire. Shrinks the prostate, relieves the major symptoms of enlarged prostate – benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

    For Women

    Tong Kat Ali

    Also called Long Jack, an Asian forest extract with consistent performance boosting properties. Just watch out for insomnia as a possible side effect, so perhaps take it in the morning for good effects later in the day.

    Black Cohosh

    Popular as a natural alternative treatment for women’s menopausal symptoms, particularly hot flushes.

    Chaste Tree Berry

    Also known as Vitex, the Chaste berry well known since ancient times for treating “womens problems”. It is mentioned in Homer’s 6th century BC epic the Iliad and was known to “The Father of Medicine” Hippocrates in the 4th century. Chaste berries are used in treating PMS and menopause.

    Dong Quai

    Also known as Chinese angelica (and not related to the European Angelica) Dong is considered the ultimate, all-purpose woman’s tonic herb. It is used for almost every gynecological complaint from regulating the menstrual cycle to treating menopausal symptoms caused by hormonal changes, including dryness and hot flushes.

    Wild Yam

    Has progesterone-favourable effects on the body, because it contains a compound from which progesterone is made. Wild Yam extract helps regulate the estrogen /progesterone ratio, normalizing imbalance. Good for menopausal problems such as sleeplessness, hot flushes and vaginal dryness and for menstrual cramps. Topically applied progesterone creams can help with sexual health.

    The pioneer in the use of natural progesterone was Dr John Lee, who investigated natural progesterone in his book What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause – The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone. Dr Lee coined the term “estrogen dominance” and was one of the first to show that synthetic hormones did not do what was claimed and could be harmful to health. His book lists recommended creams of guaranteed quality. Although Dr Lee died in 2003, his work is continued on his official website at John Lee MD (http://www.johnleemd.com/)
