Happy Fathers Day from NEEDS!


This month we would like to honor all the wonderful fathers out there! Although the stereotype is that men really don't like to worry about their health, we know there are a few health topics that are on their minds.

Hair Loss
Despite the truth in the saying "Bald is Beautiful," many men are selfconscious about receding hairlines and male-pattern baldness. Hair loss is actually caused by high levels of DHT, a metabolite of the hormone testosterone. Herbs such as saw palmetto block the conversion of testosterone, which may slow hair loss.

Prostate Health
As men age, it is common to experience prostate enlargement, also known as BPH, which may be experienced as frequent urination or needing to get up in the middle of the night to urinate. DHT is also implicated in this problem, so saw palmetto is helpful, as well as several other herbs, such as pumpkin seed extract, stinging nettles, and pygeum. Prostate Advantage from Enzymatic Therapy, and Advanced Prostate Formula from RX Vitamins are both good formulas that contain several of these herbs.

Muscle Strength
Going to the gym is an important part of a healthy routine, and for men, that may include weight lifting to build muscle mass. Protein provides the amino acid building blocks that help build muscle tissue. Whey protein, derived from milk, is a popular and high-quality source of supplemental protein great for building muscles. Natur-Tyme Whey Protein powder is a great tasting protein source.
