Saw palmetto is most well-known for supporting prostate health. Saw palmetto is used primarily to support glandular tissues (especially the prostate gland) and to maintain optimal balance in hormone levels. Scientific research validates its use for supporting prostate health. Each softgel capsule provides a minimum of 85 percent fatty acids and phytosterols, including beta-sitosterol. These fatty acids are the most sought-after components in saw palmetto.
Saw Palmetto has shown remarkable results in the treatment of BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia,) a condition affecting roughly 50% of men over 60, causing frequent and painful urination, increased nighttime urination and other urinary problems. Saw palmetto alleviates the pain and inflammation associated with this condition improving urinary flow rate and residual urine volume and providing and overall higher quality of life. Saw palmetto has demonstrated effectiveness in approximately 90% of mild to moderate cases, and is approved by both the German Commission E and the French government for the treatment of BPH.
