Saw palmetto‚ also known as Serenoa repens‚ is a member of the fan palm family and grows wild in Mediterranean countries and along the Atlantic coast of North America. It is a small palm with fan-shaped leaves and dark brownish-black fruit the size of olives. This berry-like fruit contains palmetto oil‚ a volatile and fatty acid oil containing beneficial lipids and sterols.
Traditionally‚ saw palmetto was utilized for its pronounced effect on the urinogenital tracts of both men and women‚ and particularly on the prostate gland. It has earned the nickname “the old man’s friend” due to its time-tested ability to relieve many of the annoyances associated with aging. With age‚ the prostate can grow and enlarge causing painful urination and frequent trips to the bathroom. Saw palmetto extract works to prevent testosterone from converting into dihydrotestosterone (DHT)‚ the hormone thought to cause prostate cells to multiply‚ thus leading to an enlarged prostate. Saw palmetto impedes DHT conversion by inhibiting the activity of 5-alpha-reductase. Flora’s Saw Palmetto Extract is a carefully prepared‚ concentrated formula based on research to deliver fast and effective results.
