Saw Palmetto Extract by Flora
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.
