Dietary Inhibitors of Inflammatory Prolactin
 
Calcium (in relation to phosphate), vitamin D, salt, and sufficient protein are a few simple dietary factors that can help lower the inflammatory bone loss hormone, prolactin.

“Among the most important physiological conditions, all known to be stimulatory to prolactin release, are stress, sleep, pregnancy and nursing.” —Inhibitor effect of calcium on serum prolactin (1981)


“Stressful social interactions have been shown to elicit increases in heart rate as well as in plasma levels of epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol in humans.” “The present study demonstrates that a stressful social interaction can elicit rapid increases in plasma levels of... prolactin in man.” —Psychologic stress increases plasma levels of prolactin, cortisol, and POMC-derived peptides in man (1988)


“The main purpose of this review is to discuss the multiple organs/diseases that may be considered as potential targets/indications for such [prolactin] inhibitors. This is done in light of reports suggesting that prolactin expression/signaling is increased in disease, and/or that systemic or locally elevated prolactin levels correlate with (or promote) organ pathogenesis.” —The prolactin receptor as a therapeutic target in human diseases: browsing new potential indications (2015)


“Consider, if hyperprolactinemia leads to osteoporosis, and the administration of estrogens to postmenopausal women leads to hyperprolactinemia….” —Yearbook of Endocrinology (1984)
