BETASTEROL-BPH Capsule

Deflates the Life Decelerating Prostrate Problems 

COMPOSITION: Beta-Sitosterol 50% 500 mg

β-sitosterol

Drug Class: Phytosterols

  • Beta‐sitosterols, are derived from the South African star grass, Hypoxis rooperi, or from species of Pinus and Picea.
  • Herbal medicines containing beta‐sitosterols may help to relieve the urinary symptoms and urinary flow problems caused by an enlarged prostate gland (benign prostatic hyperplasia). 
  • β-sitosterol administered for 6 months, 
  • significantly reduced the prostate size, 
  • increased the urine flow rate, and 
  • improved the mean voiding time and quality of life score in BPH patients. 
  • In three randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials, β-sitosterol demonstrated,
  • superiority in improving self-reported somatic and sexual symptoms, 
  • quality of life, 
  • peak urine flow, 
  • post-void residual volume, and 
  • plasma free testosterone levels.
  • Explanatory mechanisms; β-sitosterol inhibited the activity of 5α-reductase present in the hamster prostate. This inhibition has been hypothesized to be responsible for its activities in prostate cancer and enlarged prostate.
