he world’s leading men’s herb, rich in sterols for prostate support.
Saw Palmetto Extract is a standardized extract from the berries of Saw Palmetto trees. Native Americans have consumed the fruit of Saw Palmetto tree for a long time. Recent studies suggest that extracts of the plant may be beneficial in the management of specific health concerns. Saw Palmetto is a popular remedy for urinary tract disorders, particularly in males. It is often said that any man who lives long enough will suffer prostate problems. Saw Palmetto berries and extracts may ease prostate symptoms. Historically, the saw palmetto berries were also used in the treatment of genito-urinary tract problems.
Saw Palmetto is primarily used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), an enlargement of the prostate gland that affects about half of all men older than fifty. BPH is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland. If the prostate grows in mature men, it pinches the urethra, or urine tube, and problems begin, including painful urination and frequent nighttime trips to the bathroom. Researchers estimate that BPH affects about ten million men in the United States — some in their forties, half of all men older than fifty, and four out of every five men older than eighty.
Research conducted in Europe since the beginning of the 1980’s shows that Saw Palmetto reduced by nearly 50 percent the number of times BPH sufferers had to get up to go to the bathroom during the night and significantly reduced painful of difficult urination. Before scientists turned their microscopes to Saw Palmetto, Native Americans used the berries as a general tonic and to treat impotence.
