Introduction to Pygeum
Pygeum, arbor, up to 25 meters high. Young branches are brown pilose, glabrous in old age. Flowering period from June to September, fruit period in winter. Commonly found in valleys, roadsides, streams, or in dense forests and forest margins.
The effect of pygeum on the prostate
Prunus African is native to African countries. It is a wild tree of the Rosaceae Prunus subfamily. The extracts of bark and fruit can inhibit the growth of human fibroblasts and slow down the production of epidermal growth factor. It has obvious curative effects on prostate diseases. The extract of Pygeum serrata contains sterols and terpenoids, which can reduce excessive prostaglandins in the patient's body, reduce cholesterol deposited in the prostate, improve the fragility of veins and capillaries, and also have diuretic and anti-edema effects. , Can greatly improve the occurrence and development of male prostate and sexual organ diseases. Growth factor inhibitors have the dual effect of acting on both the prostate and the bladder. They can effectively inhibit the proliferation of fibroblasts caused by basic fibroblast growth factor, thereby effectively inhibiting the proliferation of fibrous tissue in the prostate, thereby inhibiting the prostate. Organizational proliferation. At the same time, it optimistically inhibits the fibrosis of the bladder wall, improves the elasticity of the bladder wall, and has a protective effect on the bladder function. In addition, it also has anti-inflammatory and anti-edema activities.
Pygeum is a traditional herbal medicine used to treat prostatitis. The plant ingredients contained can eliminate inflammation and reduce the swelling of the prostate caused by stimulation. It can reduce nocturia and interruption of urination.
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is the main growth factor in the prostate. The increase in bFGF can lead to the proliferation of prostate cells. African pygeum extract can effectively inhibit the compensatory thickening caused by the secondary bFGF secretion increase of the bladder wall, slow down the fibrosis process of the bladder wall, and reduce the sensitivity of the bladder detrusor. Anti-inflammatory effect.
Pygeum extract-Phytosterol 2.5%. Phytosterol is an active ingredient in plants and has many benefits to human health. Studies have found that plant sterols have the effects of lowering blood cholesterol, preventing and treating prostate hypertrophy, inhibiting tumors, inhibiting breast hyperplasia and regulating immunity. Studies at home and abroad have shown that plant sterols can compete with cholesterol in the intestine, reduce cholesterol absorption, and effectively reduce the "bad" cholesterol (including total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) content in the blood of patients with hyperlipidemia. Affects the "good" cholesterol in the blood (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), and has a good lipid-lowering effect on patients with hyperlipidemia. According to statistics, the higher the intake of plant sterols in the diet, the lower the risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases.
Many international organizations and scholars recommend intake of foods high in plant sterols to reduce the incidence of chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease. Phytosterols are compounds naturally found in plants, which can prevent the absorption of cholesterol in the small intestine.
Phytosterols can reduce the level of C-reactive protein in the body. Phytosterols also have an antioxidant effect. Use sitosterol to replace cholesterol in human keratinized cell membranes to study the effect of sitosterol on UV-mediated lipid peroxidation in cells. It is found that sitosterol can reduce lipid peroxide by 30%. Plant sterols also have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, regulation of hormones in the body and regulation of metabolism.
