    During prostatitis, zinc levels in the prostate are reduced to one-tenth the normal levels.Aging is Lorevive another factor that can lead to lower zinc levels. Zinc levels gradually reduce as men age. Testosterone levels decrease after the age of fifty creating an increase in the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the prostate. DHT is a powerful hormone which is responsible for the overproduction of prostate cells, leading to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).The growth of the prostate gland, common in older men, may be related to low zinc levels causing alterations in hormone balance. Zinc is believed to inhibit the activity of the enzyme (5-alpha-reductase) that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. "Stimulation of the prostate gland by dihydrotestosterone contributes to its Lorevive growth, so reducing levels of this hormone should lead to a reduction in prostate size," says Fouad Habib, Ph.D., a cell biologist at the University of Edinburgh Medical School, Scotland.
