Hormones and the Prostate Gland
prostate is a walnut-sized gland located under the bladder, surrounding
the urinary tract in men. Beginning in their forties, men experience an
increase in the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a potent male
hormone, in the prostate. The formation of DHT is further increased by
xenoestrogens in the environment. These are substances such as certain
pesticides, treated foods, synthetic organochlorines, and other
"endocrine disrupters" that block or mimic natural hormones.
palmetto is believed to help prevent the conversion of testosterone to
DHT, and accelerate the breakdown and elimination of DHT from prostate
tissues. Its natural phytoestrogens also may block artificial
estrogen-like compounds from accumulating in prostate tissue. Thus it
offsets the hormonal imbalances caused by aging and environmental
