Saw Palmetto Berry Extract (Serona repens)
Saw Palmetto berry was used by Native Americans, especially older men, for a variety of health concerns. Studies have shown that the berry contains fatty acids that specifically affect the prostate gland. For American men, prostate dysfunction has become a common issue this decade – and aging is not the only culprit. The chemical environment created by industrialized nations is a major detriment to the health of the prostate gland. Our Saw Palmetto extract is a highly concentrated form of this renowned berry.
Hormones and the Prostate Gland
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that surrounds the urethra in males. Beginning in their forties, men experience a change in hormone levels that may increase the prostate’s size to that of a plum, or larger. This growth is related to a significant increase inside the prostate of di-hydrotestosterone (DHT), a potent male hormone. As men age, their prostate loses its ability to break down and remove DHT. Hormones in the environment also play a role in our health. Many commercially farmed animals are treated with synthetic hormones to increase food production, and these hormones remain in the fatty tissues of meat. When humans consume this meat, these artificial hormones gravitate to the fatty tissues and organs – especially the prostate gland. Saw Palmetto is the first line of defense in a man’s health program. The benefits of Saw Palmetto have been time-tested by traditional cultures and studied by modern clinical research.
BenefitsSaw Palmetto acts as a diuretic, urinary antiseptic, and appetite stimulant. Inhibits dihydrotestosterone, a form of testosterone that contributes to enlargement of the prostate. It may also enhance sexual functioning and sexual desire. It has also been used clinically in Europe to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).
