Saw Palmetto is a plant native to southeastern U.S.‚ and its berries have beneficial properties regarding the prostate gland. The partially dried non toxic berries have been available as whole berries and powdered whole berries; however‚ the most potent form is the standardized concentrated xtract‚ derived from the active part of the berry. Studies of this herb indicate the main active ingredients are fatty acids‚ which should be no less than 85% (and preferably 85-95%) of the content to correlate with the doses used to be effective.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF SAW PALMETTO BERRY?
• Saw Palmetto Berry has steroid reductase inhibitor properties and creates antiandrogenic action‚ thereby inhibiting the enzyme‚ testosterone-5-a-reductase‚ which causes the enlargement of the gland.
• It also promotes an anti-inflammatory effect.
• Medical studies indicate significant improvement of symptoms of benign prostate enlargement within a month‚ including urinary flow.
• In other research with patients administered Serenoa extract (palmetto berry extract) a decrease in testosterone levels in the prostate was noted after 30 days. Palmetto berry extract appears to counteract local hyperandrogenism‚ which is one of the major factors in the development of adenomatous glandular tissue.
BENEFITS OF PROST-8-PALMETTO
• It contains the purest available standardized concentrated palmetto berry extract with the active fatty acid content of 85-95%.
• PUMPKIN SEED OIL has beneficial effects‚ and works synergistically with saw palmetto berry for maximum results. It will also enhance the absorption of the Lycopene (which has beneficial protective properties) in the Super Antioxidant Formula‚
• Desiccant pads are included to maintain optimal freshness.
WHY ARE ANTIOXIDANTS RECOMMENDED?
Over 40‚000 men die each year from prostate cancer. Antioxidants have anticarcinogenic properties.
