Prolactin is a peptide hormone produced and secreted mainly by lactrophic acidophilic cells of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland and is responsible for breast changes during pregnancy following delivery.

The normal prolactin level:

Men 2-18ng/mL

Non pregnant women or non-breastfeeding women 2-29ng/mL

Pregnant women 10-209ng/mL

The excessive and autonomic production of prolactin by lactrotroph cell causes hyperprolactinemia.

Causes of high prolactin levels:

  • Prolactinoma is a non-cancerous tumor found on the pituitary gland leads the body to over produce hormone prolactin.
  • Disease of hypothalamus
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Kidney disease
  • Cushing disease
  • Medications prescribed for psychiatric and gastrointestinal disorder.
  • Stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Chest trauma

How levels of prolactin can be measured:

It can be measured through simple blood test.

High prolactin symptoms in women:

  • Infertility
  • Anovulation
  • Decreased libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Painful intercourse
  • Galactorrhea
  • Hirsutism
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Acne including chest acne
  • Weight gain
  • Irregular periods
  • Osteopenia
  • Milk leaking from nipples

High prolactin symptom in men:

  • Reduce muscle mass
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Galactorrhea
  • Osteopenia

Role of dopamine in treating high levels of prolactin:

  • Dopamine is the neurotransmitter that travels to the anterior pituitary via hypophyseal portal vessels to inhibit prolactin secretion by anterior pituitary cells.
  • Dopamine agonist:  Bromcriptine and buy cabergoline are dopamine receptors agonist. They are commonly used to treat high level of prolactin they help the brain to produce dopamine that controls high prolactin levels and shrink proclactinoma tumors.
  • Diary food, unprocessed meat, omega 3 rich fishes, eggs, nuts, dark chocolates these are the foods which boost the dopamine.

Foods that lower prolactin levels:

  • Chaste berry (vitex agnus-castus):  Researches believe that chaste berry rebalances the hormone and help in reducing prolactin levels. This is special type of herb that is mainly used for raising progesterone levels and balancing progesterone to estrogen ratio. Due to its dopaminergic effects it is used in treating higher prolactin levels.
  • Mucuna pruriens:  It is a velvet bean found commonly in Africa and tropical parts of Asia. It is natural source of amino acid L-DOPA from which dopamine is produced which helps in lowering prolactin levels. Its powder can also be used by drying the seeds and grinding it into powder form.
  • Apple:  Apples are rich in quercetin, an antioxidant that helps prevent cancer and also triggers production of dopamine which is responsible for lowering prolactin levels.
  • Watermelon: The juice is fat free and loaded with vitamins A, B6 and C. vitamin B6 is used by the body to manufacture neurotransmitters such as serotonin, melatonin and dopamine. Vitamin C also enhances the immune system while protecting the body from free radicals.
  • Bananas: Ripe bananas are a major tyrosine (an amino acid neuron that helps regulate and stimulate dopamine production), as they continue to ripen and become sweeter their tyrosine content becomes more high.
  • Vitamin E:  It is found in vegetable oils (like corn, soybean, and sunflower), nuts (like almond, walnuts, peanuts, and hazel nuts), seeds, cereals, margarine, and green leafy vegetables. It is one of the most important lipid solid antioxidant, it prevents prolactin levels from rising and hardly causes any side effects.

Zinc along with vitamin B6 manage metabolic processes and lower prolactin levels.
  • Vitamin B6:  Food rich in vitaminB6 are pork, chicken, turkey, bread, soybeans, wheat germ, oatmeal’s, brown rice, potatoes and milk. It is vital nutrient which is involved in metabolism of amino acids and in synthesis of neurotransmitter dopamine, It not only reduces prolactin level but also reduces high blood pressure, lower blood sugar level and fights depression.
  • Other fruits: There so many other fruits that are rich with zinc, vitamin B6 and vitamin Includes strawberry, blueberry and prunes that are also help to reduce the level of prolactin within 2-3 month.
