Supports Healthy Prostate Function

Saw Palmetto Pygeum Nettle Root helps maintain healthy prostate gland and urinary function. Fatty acids contained in saw palmetto extract (SPE) are the main active ingredient. SPE blocks the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and decreases the rate of toxic dihydroxy-testosterone (DHT) (Talpur et al., 2003).

 

A 2004 review of clinical trials involving extracts of SPE focused on the risk-to-benefit ratio in patients with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH, the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate). The results: SPE significantly reduces the symptoms of BPH, increases urinary flow, improves quality of life, and is a viable first-line therapy for BPH (Gerber & Fitzpatrick, 2004).

 

Pygeum and nettle extracts provide phytosterols. A systematic review that combined results of controlled clinical trials found that phytosterol extracts increased peak urinary flow, decreased post-void residual volume, and improves symptom scores of BPH (Wilt, MacDonald & Ishani, 1999).

 

Recommended Dosage:

2 capsules once or twice daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
