Alpha Prime has been formulated to improve your androgen to estrogen ratio. Increasing the androgen: estrogen ratio enhances fat loss whilst increasing lean muscle mass.
The effects of aging on testosterone
In both men and women, testosterone levels peak between 25 to 30 years of age – and thereafter drop approximately 1-2% annually. At the age of 60, testosterone levels are typically only 40-50% of youthful levels and may be lower due to stress and related lifestyle issues such as diet, exercise, and sleep patterns.
The following graph is a representation of the level of testosterone as they decline for a man and woman. This decline may be ‘normal’, but not healthy. Sometimes as we age, out fat mass increases, creating an unhealthy higher level of estrogen and a rather depressing lower level of testosterone.
Signs and symptoms of excess estrogen
Excessive oestrogen can occur in men and women. The following is a checklist to determine if you may have excessive oestrogen levels. If you feel you may have higher than normal oestrogen levels, see your health care practitioner.
estrogen body shape
As oestrogen is fat soluble, it is stored in the subcutaneous fat in the following areas:
- breasts and chest
- backs of the arms
- love handles
- lower back
- lower abdomen
- poor muscle mass and quality
- poor muscle definition
- excessive subcutaneous and intramuscular fat
Figure 1. The storage sites for the estrogens
The Symptoms of excessive estrogen include:
- Increased worry, intuition and gut instincts
- Exaggerated stress response and harder to switch off so can dwell on things
- Good long term memory with poor short term memory
- Running on autopilot
- Can crave sugar and chocolate
- Mood swings are aggravated and follow pattern with menstrual cycle or moon phase changes
- Excessive headaches and migraines
- Poor circulation, sometimes bruising and varicose veins
- Bloated and “fluidy” abdomen, hips and thighs.
- Fluid retention
- Breast lumps and bumps
- Abnormal results on pap smears and mammograms.
- Blood clots, DVTs, bruising and cramps
- Poor blood sugar control – high or low blood sugar
- Cellulite and obesity
- Emotional, nervous and sleep disturbances
- Endometriosis or endomysositis
- Period pain
- PMT with excessive emotional and mood fluctuations
- Heavy periods
- UTI, Thrush
Your Oestrogen Detox Strategy
- Avoid exposure to exogenous oestrogen (‘The Pill’ etc.) and isolate and address your cause (e.g. obesity or hypothyroid function). Fat cells produce oestrogen so losing fat may be your first option. See ATP Science AMP-V product.
- Block the pathways that make the unhealthy 4α-hydroxy and 16α-hydroxy forms; while up regulating the pathway that makes the beneficial 2α-hydroxy form
- Stimulate phase 2 conjugation reactions to deactivate and eliminate excessive estrogens
Alpha Prime contains the following natural ingredients that are specifically formulated to reduce oestrogen levels:
Brassica oleracea (Broccoli) Sprout
- Modifies Phase 1 CYP450 enzymes to increases the good 2α-hydroxyestrone production and reduces the bad 16α-hydroxyestrone
- Increases phase 2 conjugation of estrogen through glucuronidation, glutathionation, methylation and sulfation.
- Quenches reactive quinones formed by the potentially dangerous 4α-hydroxyestrone pathway
- Broccoli sprouts contain a multitude of beneficial phytonutrients, activated vitamins and cofactors.
- Nrf2 activator (antioxidant)
Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) extract
- Works synergistically with sulforaphane to balance phase 1 and stimulate phase 2 detoxification pathways.
- Modifies Phase 1 detoxification pathways to switch off the 16α-hydroxyestrone pathway and up-regulate the 2α-hydroxyestrone pathway
- Enhances phase 2 conjugation reactions glutathionation and glucuronidation.
- An Nrf2 activator (a potent antioxidant inducer)
Fucus vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) extract
- Exerts anti-estrogenic effects
- Acts as an aromatase inhibitor
- Inhibits the binding of estradiol to estrogen receptors
- A reliable source of iodine
Eurycoma longifolia (Tongkat Ali) Root Extract

“I almost have the whole shop now. Been using them for almost 6 months and a lot of people have noticed the change in my body shape due to my high estrogen locked away in my fat cells which has now dropped from using Alpha Prime/Alpha Venus and Block E3. Also check out their podcast atp project. So much general health information :-)” – Mandi Lee
It is best to avoid excessive estrogens in the body in the first place. Most excessive estrogens come from carrying too much body fat. Thus, the obvious strategy to reduce estrogens is to work with your coach, trainer and/ or healthcare provider to remove excess body fat. Other sources include the environmental exposure to plastics, pollutants and chemicals in medications and cosmetics. If these factors are a part of your life and you have some of the oestrogen dominant symptoms, then consider supplementing with Alpha Prime.
Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between Alpha Prime and Alpha Venus?
Alpha Venus and Alpha Prime both contain exactly the same estrogen detoxification ability.
However 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.

Matt and Jeff jump over to the hormone Testosterone to discuss the many misconceptions surrounding it within the bodybuilding industry and how you can increase your ratios to provide your body with more “free testosterone”.
Jeff and Matt discuss the impact of the loss of natural testosterone in men and women as we age and just how important the adrenal function is for hormone production. Matt shares a breakthrough about selective estrogen receptor modifiers (SERMS) and why they are more effective at building muscle than many steroids and may be a secret weapon for women as there are no side effects and no interference with the endocrine system. A few really great FAQs that are a great listen.

I use a ton of ATP products but this has become my new fave. I bought Prime after attending the ATP Health Seminar at the Arnold's in Melbourne, after the symptom picture activity made me wonder if this product would help me. Not only have I noticed an effect on reducing stubborn belly fat I've been trying to get rid of for years, I've also noticed (and this has been the biggest and most unexpected effect of Prime) that my sleep quality has improved dramatically. I was already taking ZMST and Cort RX at night to help with sleep, and found some benefits. But adding in the Prime has just made the world of difference. Just 2 caps at night have me totally chilled out and I've been getting the most amazing deep sleeps and waking up completely refreshed before my alarm goes off. I've been able to stop using melatonin supps to get to sleep, and I've also been able to easily quit coffee with no noticeable side effects or fatigue (going from 3 coffees a day to zero!). This is only after a couple of weeks, so I'm excited to see the changes in my body continue as I keep using Alpha Prime. Thanks ATP for another awesome product!
Hi Claire, thanks so much for your review and feedback. This is so wonderful to hear that you have felt the benefits of Alpha Prime already and how it has improved your sleep. Thanks again for sharing this with us. - ATP Team
it is a amazing product

Hi Taylor, thanks for your review and feedback. We are so happy you are loving Alpha Prime! Thanks. - ATP Team
This product has been a huge help to me. I went through IVF and without success gave up and got a mirena. I ended up having the mirena pulled as I was so ill with it. After both these traumatic changes in my life, I was never the same. I recently went on Alpha Prime and I am beginning to feel like myself again. My relationship has benefitted as well, An incredible product.
Hi Donna, this is fantastic! Thank-you for sharing your experience with us. Thanks. - ATP Team
Works a treat!
Almost finished one bottle of Prime and I've noticed a difference in body composition where I don't have as much fluid retention. Not sure if this is related but my anxiety hasn't been as bad. I need lots of Liver Support and Prime has been working well for me.Doesn't keep me awake either so I can take it late afternoon if I forget. Recommended for those needing oestrogen detox support.
Hi Bonny! Thank you so much for leaving this feedback on the Alpha Prime that's awesome news to hear its helped in such different ways. Feel free to check in with us anytime via the contact us page on the website if you need any assistance with future products. - ATP Team
