Xbira 250 mg Tablets Work :
Xbira 250 mg works as an androgen biosynthesis inhibitor. Androgens stimulate prostate cancer cells to grow. The main androgens in the body are testosterone. Almost all testosterone in men is made by the testicles. A very small amount is made by the adrenal glands, which sit above the kidneys. Xbira 250 mg online reduces the amount of testosterone made by your body. This reduces testosterone levels and may shrink the prostate cancer or stop it growing.
