Aromatase Inhibitors and Prostate Health

If I read the article correctly in a recent issue of LEM - prostate health might be inversely related to the amount of estrogen in the male body. If that is true would is make sense to supplemnt with an aromatase inhibitor? Is chrysin a practical aromatase inhibitor?

::The problem with this approach is that estrogen is also beneficial for males as well as females (eg. osteoporosis prevention). It would therefore not be wise to attempt to strongly inhibit estrogen production in healthy males.

However, for those with major BPH or prostate cancer, aromatase inhibitors may be highly beneficial and have been prescribed for prostate cancer by many knowledgable physicians. There many others besides chrysin (which may not even work very well).

Here is an interesting abstract showing a very positive result on the prostate (in male dogs) by dual inhibition of both aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase. Read more...
