Dear Stephen,
I’ve been on your protocol for about 6 months and felt like andrographis was helping me. I was really disappointed today when I read in your book that andrographis can inhibit progesterone. I’m a male with osteoporosis. Progesterone is necessary for bone growth and mine’s already low. If I were to supplement with progesterone, would it not be absorbed as well? And how much would I need just to offset the andrographis? I’m taking the Nature’s Way capsules. Thanks.

Stephen’s response:
This mostly affects women who are trying to conceive. I think it unlikely that it would affect osteoporosis problems. You might see my book Vital Man (see bookstore). I do look in detail at osteoporosis problems in that book; they are normally pretty easy to treat with herbs and supplements. I don’t think it a problem to supplement with progesterone while taking andrographis.
