Pygeum Extract
"For pharmaceutical use, Alchem offers Vinpocetine with all its inherent benefits"

Pygeum is a herbal remedy containing extracts from the bark of Prunus africana. Pygeum africanum, a member of the Rosaceae family, is an evergreen species found across the entire continent of Africa at altitudes of 3,000 feet or higher. Pygeum africanum bark extract contains several naturally-occurring chemicals that contribute to its therapeutic action. The active constituents of Pygeum extract include phytosterols that have anti-inflammatory effects, pentacyclic triterpenes that have anti-edema properties, and ferulic acid nesters that reduce prolactin levels and block the accumulation of cholesterol in the prostate.

Many mechanisms may explain pygeum's effects on benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). These include a slight decrease in levels of testosterone and prolactin (which stimulates intraprostatic dihydrotestosterone synthesis and testosterone uptake), a decrease in the excitability of the detrusor muscle, antiestrogenic effects (which may block the initiation of hyperplasia), a decrease in the proliferation of fibroblasts within the gland, and an increase in prostatic secretions (which may help to alleviate irritation within the urethra). Pygeum bark shows the inhibition of the enzyme 5 - α-reductase, preventing the conversion of testosterone (T) to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and will stop androgen receptor-mediated actions of DHT on skin.

In herbal medicine, pygeum is typically used in treatment of conditions such as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), inflammation, erectile dysfunction, kidney disease, male baldness and urinary tract disorders. 

The product addresses broad spectrum physiological concerns and has the band width and capabilities to meet expectations. Regular use should exhibit demonstrable results to inhibit various health related issues.
