Saw Palmetto Extract 320 mg For Prostate Health. Saw palmetto, also known as Serenoa repens or Sabal serrulata, is a member of the fan palm family, and grows wild in Mediterranean countries and along the Atlantic coast of North America. It is a small palm with fan-shaped leaves and dark brownish-black berry-like fruit the size of olives. These berries contain palmetto oil, a volatile and fatty oil containing beneficial lipids and sterols. What Does it Do? According to clinical reports, saw palmetto appears to be a nutritive tonic. Over the centuries it has had many traditional uses, but its most pronounced effect is on the urino-genital tracts of both men and women, and most particularly on the prostate gland. It has earned the nickname "old man's friend" due to its historic ability to prevent or relieve many of the annoyances associated with an enlarged prostate gland. Saw Palmetto is primarily used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BHP), an elargement of the prostate gland that affects 1 in 3 men over 50 and 2 in 3 men over 60. BPH is a noncancerous 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. How Does it Work? Saw palmetto extract works to prevent testosterone from converting into dihydrotestosterone, the hormone thought to cause prostate cells to multiply, leading to an enlarged prostate. Saw palmetto berries contains fatty acids and sterols, which are the active ingredients and it is this part of the plant that reduces the inflammation of the prostate gland. Palmitol contains a liposterolic saw palmetto extract (standardized to 85%-95% fatty acids) with added zinc and vitamin B6. Zinc is important in maintaining a healthy prostate and Vitamin B6 is required for its absorption by the body. This means you get a highly concentrated product that is faster acting than other products on the market. Saw Palmetto products that do not contain these fatty acids are not nearly as effective or fast acting. Benefits: - Reduces enlarged prostate glands and the accompanying symptoms such as frequent urination, weak urine stream and difficult or painful urination. - Helps treat urinary tract problems. - Improves body strength. - Inhibits androgen and estrogen receptor activity. - Beneficial for balancing hormones in both men and women. - Active constituents are volatile oil, steroidal saponins, tannins, and polysaccharides. Qualities: Palmitol is a complete prostate protector for men. It contains a high quantity of potent liposterolic saw palmetto extract (standardized to 85-95% concentration) and is based on the same 320 mg concentrate that has been clinically tested and shown to shrink prostate tissue and diminish the symptoms of BPH. Zinc and vitamin B6 are included in this formula because they are required for proper hormone metabolism and they help prevent prostate enlargement. This formula will help men who have to urinate frequently, have to get up during the night to urinate or can only urinate slowly and if used daily, results should be seen within 2 months. - Saw Palmetto is a tonic, and one of the few remedies to be considered anabolic it strengthens and builds body tissues. - Palmitol contains 320 mg of liposterolic saw palmetto extract (standardized to 85%-95% fatty acids), which is the potency that has proven effective in clinical trials. - With added zinc and vitamin B6 for a complete prostate formula. - Only one a day is required. Research:Research conducted in Europe since the beginning of the 1980's shows that saw palmetto reduced by nearly 50% the number of times BPH sufferers had to get up to go to the bathroom during the night and significantly reduced painful or difficult urination. More recently, researchers compared a saw palmetto extract with finasteride, the conventional BPH drug. The study involved 1,098 men diagnosed with BPH, and researchers concluded that both treatments relieved BPH symptoms in about two-thirds of the men. But while the finasteride reduced the prostate size it also decreased sex drive and potency. Dosages:Take 1 capsule daily with a meal. For maximum benefit take consistently.
