Endosterol suppositories provide state of the art herbal supplementation to support improved health. Endosterol’s ingredients have historically been used to support men’s prostate health, resolve inflammation, improve immune function and support female health.
Endosterol Phytonutrient Complex Suppositories are used to help improve prostate health, increase immune function and lower inflammation.
Endosterol detoxification suppositories use high grade saw palmetto, beta sitosterol, quercetin, pumpkin seed extract, ginko biloba and ellagic acid to help support health improvement. These ingredients have been used for some time to reduce inflammation, support the prostate, increase immune function and support feminine health.
Each box contains 10 detox suppositories and lasts one month.
Endosterol contains the utmost grade of beta sitosterol, saw palmetto, pumpkin seed extract, quercetin, ellagic acid and ginko biloba available on the market today. These ingredients have traditionally been used to maintain prostate health, put an end to inflammation, enhance immune function and sustain female health.
|Endosterol suppositories offer cutting-edge prostate support. Endosterol contains beta-sitosterol, saw palmetto, pumpkin seed, dandelion, ellagic acid and Mg Di-K EDTA. Beta sitosterol is an aromatase and 5-alpha reductase inhibitor thereby decreasing the exchange of testosterone to both estrogen and Di-hydro testosterone. Ellagic acid has been shown to cause aptosis in prostate and other cancer cell lines within 48 hours. Because of the rectum’s direct proximity to the prostate, Endosterol provides its benefits much more effectively than oral preparations.|
|High levels of Di-Hydro Testosterone (DHT) are now acknowledged as the main source of male hair loss. DHT is created by the action of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase upon normal testosterone and levels multiply with age. Beta-sitosterol is a natural 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor and may help decelerate and/or reverse hair loss by reducing DHT levels in the body.|
|Beta sitosterol has been clinically proven to both decrease LDL cholesterol as well as bring down triglyceride levels. Beta-sitosterol is also a superior adjunctive therapy to chelation as it has been shown to bring down the fatty constituent of atherosclerotic plaque.|
|The inflammation pathway, in nature, is controlled through the fats and oils in our diet. Certain oils and fats amplify inflammation and others slow it down. Saw palmetto and pumpkin seed extracts have been proven to support decreased inflammation via inhibition of the COX and lipoxygenase pathways.|
|While most believe that a robust immune system is an optimum immune system, the truth is that what we really want is a robust and balanced immune system. A person who is suffering from allergies has an unbalanced immune system as does a person suffering from an autoimmune disease. Increasing the strength of the immune system without first balancing it may make symptoms poorer than before. Beta sitosterol has been proven to both sustain an increase in immune function and balance immune function at the same time.|
|As men age they make less and less testosterone, and more and more estrogen, until around the age 34 (see chart at left), they undergo a hormonal inversion and begin to make more estrogen than testosterone. This process speeds up with age so that by the time men are 60, they make two times as much estrogen as testosterone and by age 90, 12 times as much estrogen. The physical consequences of a hormonal inversion are less muscle, increased body fat, hair loss, cancer and heart disease. The psychological consequences are less and less motivation and augmented emotionality.|
|While saw palmetto is well known for its positive effects on the prostate, it also has a long history of being used for some female health concerns. Herbalists have used saw palmetto to build up women's bodies in resolving issues linked to fertility, milk flow, libido, menstrual irregularities, fluid retention and pelvic inflammatory conditions for hundreds of years.|
In every cell of the body, there are little organelles called Peroxisomes. The job of the peroxisomes is to burn fats and detoxify poisons. When the peroxisomes are healthy and abundant, we stay slim and toxin free, but when they become damaged, and decrease in number, fat and toxic matter begins to build up in the body.
Let's start first with what affects the health the peroxisomes we have, then we'll look at what affects the number of peroxisomes we have. Peroxisomes are very sturdy. They have to be. All day long they have to burn up fats and detoxify poisons, but they have a specific weakness, an Achilles heel if you will, and that is phthalates (tha- lates).
Phthalates give us products like Styrofoam cups, ziplock bags, Tupperware containers, plastic wrapped foods, plastic lined milk and juice cartons... and of course, plastic water bottles. Plastic water bottles can be the worst offenders as the more pure the water, the more it will leach the phthalates from the plastic bottle. It's a cruel irony that health conscious people who drink bottled water are actually taking in more toxins from their plastic water bottles then they would get from drinking unfiltered city tap water. Even babies get soft plastic teething toys, plastic pacifiers and plastic formula bottles.
Phthalates are also found in clothing, toys, cosmetics, perfumes, nail polishes, hairsprays, skin creams, mosquito repellants, toothbrushes, car interiors, hoses, paints, vinyl, sealants, adhesives and the list goes on. Look around you. Phthalates are everywhere.
Now if these phthalates were to stay in their host products, it would be fine, but they don't. You see, phthalates aren't chemically bound to the materials they are added to. They leak into our water, juice, milk, and food they are supposedly protecting. They leak out of the clothes we wear and pass into our bodies through our skin. They off-gas from our floors, walls, cars and furniture and go into our lungs.
Once in our bodies, phthalates wreak havoc with our endocrine system, cause birth defects and cancer, damage our mitochondria and liposomes, and most relevant to this presentation, phthalates poison our peroxisomes.
The first signs of phthalate toxicity showed up in the Korean and Vietnam Wars where injured soldiers would occasionally go into shock and die within minutes of being given blood from plastic IV bottles. Before this time, blood was stored in glass bottles but in 1948 with the invention of plastic blood storage bags, the military abandoned the use of blood in glass bottles since it was too easily broken in a wartime environment. Unfortunately, the phthalates leaked from the plastic bags into the stored blood and then were put directly into these poor soldiers bodies. Many good men died, not from their wounds, but from phthalate toxicity. Medical researchers who noticed the greater number of men who died of shock in these later wars attributed it to the hotter climate but phthalates were the more likely culprit.
Now peroxisomes can take a lot of damage, in fact, they are specifically built to be able to break down toxic chemicals, but they can't handle are phthalates, and these are the very toxins that we are most frequently exposed to. In fact, phthalates are the number one toxin in the body with an amazing 3 milligrams of them being absorbed a day. Put another, you will eat, drink or inhale over 18 teaspoons of phthalates in your lifetime. Many health conscious people now eat organic foods to minimize their pesticide exposure, which is of an excellent idea, but what they are unaware of is that phthalates are even more toxic than many pesticides and that in an average day, we absorb 1100 more phthalates than we do pesticides.
So to keep the peroxisomes healthy, the first thing you have to do is to "get the plastic out". You can do this by minimizing your exposure to plastics. Unfortunately, avoiding all plastics is virtually impossible in the modern world, which brings us to the second thing we need to do and that is to actively remove the phthalates from our bodies.
This can be accomplished in two ways. The first method is to take regular saunas. A certain amount of phthalates can be removed with a good old-fashioned sweat and this is something each of us should be sure to do at least once a month. Unfortunately, this can only get rid of the phthalates that are in the skin and fat. To get the phthalates out of the deeper internal organs, we need another technique.
To get the deep seated phthalates out of the body we need to use our innate glutathione detoxification system. Glutathione is the body's main detoxifier and fortunately, it can remove phthalates.
Okay, back to the peroxisomes. We now know that phthalates are main chemical insult to the health of the peroxisomes. Now, let's turn our attention to how many peroxisomes we actually have.
Outside of detoxifying poisons, the main function of the peroxisomes is to burn fat, so when our cells sense that fat and oil consumption has increased, they produce more peroxisomes to help metabolize it. Likewise, if they sense that less fats and oils are being consumed, they decrease in number.
One of the main ways that our cells determine how much fat and oil we are consuming is to monitor the level of sitosterols in our body. Since sitosterols are always found in fats and oils, this gives the cells a way to determine the amount being eaten, and then to increase or decrease peroxisomes production accordingly.
This peroxisome regulation system worked flawlessly right up until the fats and oils began being mass-produced last century. You see, fat and oil production companies don't like sitosterols. Sitosterols gum up their multi-million dollar processing equipment. They make their product cloudy and give it a taste and odor some people object to. They also cause their products have a shorter shelf life. So what did these companies do? You guessed it. They filtered out all the sitosterols from their products.
So, what happens when you eat these unnatural sitosterol-free foods? The cells are misled into thinking that the fat and oil consumption is much lower than it actually is. Over time this causes a decrease in the number of peroxisomes. Since peroxisomes burn fat in the cells, less peroxisomes means less fat burning capability. This can cause fat to be put in storage around the body, and not just in the thighs and around the waist. In fact, fat can accumulate virtually anywhere in the body. When fat accumulates in the arteries, it is called atherosclerosis. Fat accumulation under the skin is called cellulite. Fat can and does accumulate in every organ including the heart, brain, lungs, nerves, liver, bone marrow and the spleen to name a few.
So, what can we do? First, stop eating refined fats and oils. In this manner, your cells won't be blind-sided by fats and oils they can't see.
Second, consider increasing your intake of sitosterols. This way, you can stimulate the production of more peroxisomes, and start the process of burning all that accumulated fat out of your body.
According to the Centers for Disease Control 57% of Americans are overweight with nearly 1/4 of us being clinically obese. Detoxification, diet, exercise and peroxisomes. A complete weight loss program must take all four of these subjects into consideration.
So let's recap.
Every cell has peroxisomes in them, whose job it is to burn fat and detoxify poisons. Peroxisomes are under continual attack by the most common of all poisons in the human environment, phthalates. Peroxisomes are also artificially decreased in number due to sitosterols being processed out of our foods. The decreased health and number of peroxisomes in our cells can lead to fat deposition in all the organs of our bodies as well as an accumulation of many chemical toxins that the peroxisomes would otherwise detoxify.
The solution is:
- To avoid phthalates whenever possible.
- To break a good sweat at least once a month to sweat some of the phthalates out
- To support our glutathione detoxification systems so we can detoxify those phthalates we can’t sweat out
- To increase our sitosterol intake so as to stimulate the production of more peroxisomes.

It is recommend to use one suppository every third evening or morning. One package will last 1 month.
Directions: For rectal use only. Use following a bowel movement. Refrigerate before using. To remove suppository, tear the plastic shell lengthwise beginning at the V shaped cut at the pointed end of the suppository. Apply a light coating of Vaseline (we recommend olive oil or coconut oil) to the suppository before insertion. Insert suppository past sphincter muscle. Try to wait 15 to 20 minutes before another bowel movement. Broken suppositories may be reheated in their shells in a ziplock bag in warm water until melted and then reformed in refrigerator. Occasional air bubbles in suppository are normal and do not indicate a loss of product. Use every third day or as directed by your health care provider.
Note: Storing this product at room temperature will not alter the effectiveness or potency. However a firm suppository is necessary for a comfortable and easy insertion. Therefore we recommend that this product be stored in the refrigerator to maintain firmness. If the suppository does become soft, place the suppository in the refrigerator to achieve the firmness needed for comfortable insertion Avoid excessive heat (80°F). Store in a cool place 8° to 15°C (46° to 59°F) or refrigerate. When using nutritional supplements or nutraceuticals, please inform your physician if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition healthcare professional.
How To Insert Rectal Suppositories
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Prior to using/inserting suppositories, it is best to attempt to evacuate by attempting to have a bowel movement. We recommend, if possible, that the suppositories be inserted after you have attempted to move your bowels. This helps in the first of the four pharmacokinetic processes: absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination (Hollenberg & Brody, 1998). If you chose to use a latex glove to insert the suppository, place the glove on the hand you will use to insert the suppository. Gloves are very inexpensive gloves can be purchased at most pharmacies.
- Take the suppository out of the refrigerator. The suppositories retain cold so they will be comfortable. By keeping the suppository in the refrigerator, the suppository will be hard and easier to insert. ONLY the DMSA suppository cannot be refrigerated or kept in freezer since the cold decreases potency.
- Open plastic suppository shell by pulling apart the 2 tabs located at the tapered end.
- If necessary, lubricate the suppository tip with tap water or a lubricant such as K-Y Lubricating Jelly or Vaseline.. If you do not have this lubricant, moisten the SUPPOSITORY with cool tap water. Note that after a shower, insertion is quite easy. Note that the use of the lubricating jelly and/or cool water will hasten the separation of the base material form the nutrients, and thus enhance the absorption process.
- Lie on your side with your lower leg straightened out and your upper leg bent forward toward your stomach.
- Lift upper buttock to expose the rectal area.
- Insert the suppository flat side first (not the tapered end pushing with your finger until it passes the muscular sphincter of the rectum, about 1/2 to 1 inch in infants and 1 inch in adults. ) By inserting the flat end first retention and post insertion comfort is improved. If the suppository is not inserted past this sphincter muscle, the suppository may pop out (see below). The placing of the flat side first into the rectum triggers a reflex contraction of the rectal tissue that causes the suppository to be pulled up into the rectum where it is more comfortably retained.
- Hold buttocks together for a few seconds and you are finished!
- Discard used materials and wash your hands thoroughly. If you have used a latex glove, pull the glove inside out then discard. Remember, if you have problem with retaining the suppository, a simple strategy to insure retention is to lying down for about 5-15 minutes as this will help you retain the suppository.
- If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product
- Keep out of reach of children
- Do not exceed recommended dose
- Do not use if the suppositories are open or damaged.
