A prior post on the product Alphastat generated quite a bit of traffic and comments. It has also generated a considerable bit of internal rumination on my part as to the role of one of its ingredients, astaxanthin, in influencing testosterone levels. Is astaxanthin’s role in Alphastat as an aromatase inhibitor, an agent that prevents conversion of testosterone to estrogen, or mere filler to justify charging premium prices? What is the research behind this and is it valid? Finally are there other natural compounds that are more effective and substantiated aromatase inhibitors on the market?
