Alpha Venus Vs Alpha Prime

Feb 23, 2017 | 8 comments

Target Estrogen Dominance

Broccoli sprout sulforaphanes, natural folates, rosemary and kelp work to offset excessive estrogen by making estrogen deactivation, detoxification and elimination efficient. Thereby allowing the body to make and release and use estrogen as usual for all of its healthy functions but then quickly and efficiently clear it out of the system so it doesn’t loiter around contributing to weight gain, fluid retention, and hormonal dysfunction.

Androgens do the opposite to estrogen

Balance is key. To simplify we will talk about the androgens; testosterone, progesterone and DHEA. You can have estrogen dominance due to deficiency of androgens or you may have excess estrogen and normal androgens etc. Regardless, if you increase androgens while dropping estrogen you will see faster change. If you drop or increase both and ratios stay the same, you won’t see a great deal of change.

Ratios of hormones are more important than amounts

It is more effective to alter ratios of hormones rather than just increase or decrease body load. This is where it becomes tricky.

Alpha Venus and Alpha Prime both contain exactly the same estrogen detoxification ability.

Where they vary is in regards to building androgens to offset the estrogen.

Alpha Venus is designed to build up the androgen progesterone while clearing away the estrogen excess.

Alpha Prime is designed to increase testosterone and DHEA while clearing away the estrogen excess.

Progesterone

Progesterone usually spikes after ovulation and tells the body to wait a couple of weeks and see if this egg gets fertilized. It signals for the body to drop off estrogen. So, the menstrual cycle is supposed to be 2 weeks of estrogen building and proliferating; making period, making boobs swell and grow and holding fluid and then 2 weeks of waiting for your period or fertilization dominated by progesterone. NOT 4 weeks of estrogen dominance making boobs swell, periods get heavy and clotty, blood all sticky and migraines and bruising and clotting and definitely not 4 weeks of swelling of fat and fluid.

Vitex is the herb added to Alpha Venus to aid healthy progesterone production. Another action of Vitex is it’s ability to boost the feel good chemical dopamine and drop off the lactation / gynecomastia (big painful boobs and man boobs) chemical prolactin.

Testosterone and DHEA

These masculizing androgens do not influence the menstrual cycle as much as estrogen: progesterone ratios but have a greater effect at building muscle and burning fat. Athletes and those looking for an edge at changing performance and body shaping goals have known this for some time and try to maximise these hormone activities in an attempt to get that dry hardness in the muscle. They are potent anti-inflammatories and can help prevent injury and improve recovery.

Some people already have too much testosterone and DHEA for various reasons. Excessive testosterone and DHEA has been linked to acne, pcos, hirsutism and male pattern baldness (in men and women). Increasing testosterone and DHEA further can aggravate / worsen those symptoms.

Tongkat Ali is added to the Alpha prime to increase testosterone and DHEA activity. One very cool feature of tongkat ali is that it works on the adrenal gland to change priorities away from survival and release of catabolic cortisol and more into recovery and repair with anabolic DHEA.

    Hi there, I am a 29 year old female, I have Hashimotos disease (no meds, Gluten free and antibodies significantly dropped after this, supplement with magnesium and zinc) My question is this: I have had severe acne on and off throughout my life with very severe mental distress from it, the pill Yaz totally knocks off the acne but I have almost totally lost my libido and also have extra weight (hips and thighs, boobs a little on my tummy and back of arms) that I really could do without. I am considering going off the pill because of my lack of libido but the skin is a huge priority for me, would taking one of these supplements ( or both, combo etc.) help me to cycle off the pill without my skin going wild or even increase libido but help keep weight and skin in check if I stayed on the pill? Thankyou for any help, Liz

      Hi Liz,
      Great question and we would recommend sticking to Alpha Venus over the Alpha Prime as this should help to balance the hormones through the transition of coming off the pill. We would recommend taking x4 capsules daily with breakfast, please feel free to email us if you have anymore questions 🙂 info@atpscience.com

      Thanks!

    I have been a dedicated user of Alpha Prime on and off for over 12 months. My periods have always been normal. Recently they have become very heavy and constant, with only 1 week break then they start again the same. Hormone levels normal from doctor. Pre-menopausal no doubt and getting hot flushes. My main concern is getting my periods back to normal. What should I be taking? Alpha venus or mars? Or persevere with the Prime. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is there anything wrong with taking both in your stack or is it better to do one or the other?
