**Please note that Pygeum Africanum Bark is from a tree that has been on the endangered species list for quite some time due to the increased demand for the raw material. As a result, it is becoming more and more difficult to find this raw material as sources dry up. For now, we have still been able to obtain the Pygeum Africanum Bark Extract that is used in the Sinest® product but prices are soaring due its limited availability and it may not be available for much longer. We will endeavor to continue to manufacture this product for as long as we can find the raw material. Looking forward, Dr. Wong is attempting to find an alternative replacement material that has the same function just in case this material becomes unavailable. Thank you, we appreciate your patience and understanding**.
Dr. Wong's Essentials® Sinest® is a preparation of proven ingredients that maintain the body's normal/healthy levels of estrogen either by blocking or aromatase inhibiting agents to either block the action of estrogen in the body or block the making of estradiol and estrone, the two most dangerous and carcinogenic forms of estrogen.* While many supplements have these ingredients, they are normally not found in a dosage sufficient to have a physiological effect. According to the head of hormone research at Georgetown University, these herbs only have the anti-estrogenic actions when taken in doses above 1 gram (1000mg) of the raw powdered herbs. In creating Sinest®, full strength extracts of the component herbs were used and combined so that in a single capsule there is the equivalent of over a teaspoon (5000 mg) of each herb.
