For years‚ countries throughout Europe‚ as well as New Zealand and native tribes in the Americas‚ have used one herbal extract to support the male body. It is believed that saw palmetto‚ which comes from the Serenoa repens fruit‚ may promote prostate health and good urinary function.
Saw palmetto may support the prostate through its impact on testosterone metabolism. It contains phytosterols and fatty acids that may alleviate symptoms associated with a condition called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). BPH is characterized by an enlarged prostate; while it usually isn't a sign of more serious problems‚ it can be very uncomfortable and push on the bladder. The pressure an enlarged prostate can put on the bladder may make you need to get up and go to the bathroom in order to urinate at night.
The benefits of saw palmetto may also derive from its impact on androgen receptors and hormones‚ as well as its potential anti-inflammatory properties.
Saw Palmetto 320 by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient source of this herb. Every capsule provides 320 milligrams of saw palmetto fruit extract‚ which has been standardized to ensure that you get a total of 85 percent total fatty acids‚ as well as 0.15 percent phytosterols. Phytosterols are plant-derived molecules that may promote cardiovascular health. The modern Western diet tends to be relatively low in phytosterols; since they may lessen benign prostatic hypertrophy symptoms in the urinary tract‚ supplementation may be a good choice for many men.
Take one or two softgel capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 240-softgel botle of Pure Encapsulations' Saw Palmetto 320 should last from four to eight months.
