The Male Hormone Balance Bundle is designed to support men live a healthy and vibrant life. As men age, progesterone levels drop and they become estrogen dominant in which many health issues can arise. In addition, low levels of testatorone can cause a myriad symptoms as listed below.
This combined bundle will improve mood and energy and can provide a natural balance and stability. They're all bundled here to save you time, money, and hassle. Click here for more information on men and hormones.
Andropause takes place when the level of testosterone in a man diminishes to the point that certain symptoms occur typically starting at age 50. The most well-known symptom is erectile dysfunction. However, low testosterone levels can also result in the following:
- Muscle Loss
- Weight Gain
- Sleep Problems
- Hot Flashes in Men
- Night Sweats in Men
- Lower Sex Drive
- Hair Loss
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Urinary Problems
- Memory Loss
Unlike women, who experience a rapid drop in hormone levels at menopause, men experience a more gradual decrease of testosterone levels over time. The older the man, the more likely he is to experience below-normal testosterone levels. Testosterone needs a subscription and Dr. Platt does not prescribe
MALE HORMONE BUNDLE INCLUDES:
PRO MAX 5% (essential oil free) has a clean odor (not a fragrance) and disappears into the skin in about 30 seconds.
The base is Organic Wild Yam, Paraben Free, Soy Free, MSM Free, EDTA Free. Our progesterone comes from organic wild yam extract, and is converted into USP progesterone (meeting the standards of the United States Pharmacopeia for strength, purity and quality).
The major benefit of this cream is that it has been specially formulated to provide maximal effectiveness. In this regard, it has the exact strength needed to block the toxic effects of estrogen, insulin, and adrenaline.
PRO MAX 5% strength, which means that one pump provides 50 mg of progesterone. To gain insight into some of the actions of progesterone, please refer to the Progesterone Information below.
After it is applied, progesterone only lasts for about 5-6 minutes in the bloodstream because it is quickly picked up by receptor sites.
Since it is so short acting, the best time to use progesterone is 1-3 minutes before eating. The most important time of day to use progesterone is before lunch. Insulin levels are the highest in the afternoon, which, of course, is why many people get sleepy between 3-4PM. Please keep in mind that when sugar levels drop, the body will be releasing adrenaline to raise the sugar levels back up.
Strength: 50 mg per pump
Apply 1 pump to the inside of one forearm and rub forearms together. Or apply to the back of the neck if there is tension.
For those with increased adrenaline, we recommend using the cream 1-3 minutes before meals in order to control insulin levels.
Do this up to four times a day. When symptoms of increased adrenaline are abated, you can reduce applications to 2-3 times a day.
If you have trouble sleeping at night, it is recommended that you eat a low-glycemic carbohydrate just before going to bed. In addition, apply the cream again just before eating your bedtime snack.
Progesterone provides benefits to both men and women in three major areas. The first area is its well-known effect in women as the hormone that helps block the detrimental effects of estrogen. In this regard, it helps prevent menstrual cramps, breast tenderness, and PMS in those women who are menstruating, along with fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, and fibrocystic disease of the breast. It also eliminates other problems caused by estrogen such as asthma, migraine headaches, and morning sickness. In addition, it helps to prevent all cancers caused by estrogen, such as cancers of the breast, uterus, ovaries, cervix, colon, and the prostate in men.
Progesterone is especially beneficial for asthma in men – an end-product of progesterone metabolism is cortisol and its anti-estrogen effect may also be playing a role.
The third major area of benefit of using progesterone is that it blocks the action and over-production of adrenaline. Adrenaline is popularly known as “the-fight-or-flight” hormone, and excess levels can create anger, road rage, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and teeth grinding. When anger is internalized, it can lead to depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, IBS, plus other problems. As a neurotransmitter in the brain, adrenaline can cause the mind to race which can cause problems with focusing – i.e. ADHD, or “brain fog”. It also causes urinary urgency in adults as well as bed-wetting in children. Adrenaline is probably the number one cause of unexplained weight gain. Leg cramps at night are also caused by adrenaline, and can usually be relieved within 30-60 seconds when progesterone is applied to the area of cramping.
EST-LESS (MANAGES ESTROGEN LEVELS):
Est-Less contains I-3-C (indole-3-carbinol) and DIM (diindolymethane) which are considered the main active ingredients in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. This formulation also provides the all important antioxidant Vitamin E.
DIM is a nutritional approach to achieving a safer and healthier estrogen metabolism, or of protecting it. Many of the benefits traditionally ascribed to estrogen (protection from heart disease, healthy skin, bones, and brain) may actually reside with its beneficial metabolites, the 2-hydroxy estrogens.
Indole-3-carbonyl, which is found in cabbage, broccoli and kale, stimulates enzymes that reduce the effectiveness of estrogen, thereby reducing the risk of breast cancer.
It is recommended for those women with a history suggestive of severe estrogen dominance –breast cancer,endometriosis, fibroids, PMDD, fibrocystic disease, ovarian cysts – or for those men with high estradiol levels from taking testosterone or who have prostate cancer.
Contains indole 3 carbinol (I-3-C) which converts “Bad” estrogen into “Good” estrogen. Estrogen is implicated in cancer of the prostate, breast, colon, uterus, cervix and ovaries. It reduces auto-immune response and may promote aging.
Recommended use: One capsule per day
- Boosts the immune system
- Essential for the prostate
- Heals tissue
- Helps prevent macular degeneration
Zinc is found in higher levels in our body than any other trace element but iron. In the days when we were eating an unrefined diet and leading relatively stress-free lives, this was not a problem. However, processing and refining, overcooking and soil depletion where the crops are grown or how the animals are raised affects the levels in our foods. A zinc deficiency is therefore becoming ever more common.
A simple signal of a zinc deficiency is the presence of white spots on your finger nails. Stress depletes zinc. Zinc deficiencies are associated with many serious health conditions such as prostate problems, diabetes, infertility (zinc is present at very high levels in seminal fluid), fatigue and poor wound healing. Except for the prostate, the eyes absorb more zinc than any other tissue in the body. It is necessary for the prevention of macular degeneration, the most common cause of adult blindness.
Maintaining adequate levels of zinc may help protect elderly individuals from pneumonia and its complications. According to investigators, those with normal serum zinc concentrations in their blood reduced their risk of developing pneumonia by about 50%. Vegetarians may need as much as 50% more zinc than non-vegetarians because of the lower absorption of zinc from plant foods. Diarrhea results in a loss of zinc. Individuals who experience chronic diarrhea should make sure they include sources of zinc in their daily diet and from zinc supplementation.
In addition to mending the difficulties brought on by diabetes, zinc also serves to maint ain a healthy immune system, controls hair loss, halts impotence, improves brain function, prevents loss of taste or smell, and much more.
Recommended dose: 50 mg per day
