Throughout the world‚ an herb called saw palmetto has been used by men to support their overall well-being. Specifically‚ it works to support the prostate. Your prostate is a gland that produces semen‚ and it surrounds the tube that carries urine out of the bladder in order to eliminate liquid waste.
Saw Palmetto 320 by Pure Encapsulation promotes the healthy metabolism of testosterone‚ which is the primary male sex hormone. Testosterone levels may decline with age; therefore‚ a lack of testosterone may be related to the increased chance that older males have of developing an enlarged prostate. The prostate is normally supposed to be walnut-sized.
In addition‚ the saw palmetto extract in Saw Palmetto 320 works to support the urinary tract. This is because it may alleviate symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). While it typically isn't a sign of more serious health problems‚ an enlarged prostate can put increased pressure on the urethra; as a result‚ you may feel the need to urinate more frequently--having to wake up and go to the bathroom at night is common. Another common--and sometimes embarrassing--indication of BPH--is dribbling after urination.
Every softgel of Saw Palmetto 320 contains 320 milligrams of Serenoa repens (saw palmetto) fruit extract. This extract has been standardized to ensure that it provides sufficient levels of active compounds: 0.15 percent phytosterols and 85 percent total fatty acids. Phytosterols are plant sterols that may support cardiovascular health by latching onto cholesterol receptors in the intestines.
Take one or two softgel capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-softgel bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Saw Palmetto 320 should last from two to four months.
