The prostate is a gland that surrounds the urethra and is essential to male health. However‚ especially as you or the man in your life get older‚ his prostate may require additional support.
In some cases‚ a man may suffer from a condition known as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH); this condition usually isn't the sign of a more serious health problem‚ but can cause discomfort and annoyance. An enlarged prostate can press down on the urethra‚ and that pressure may contribute to leaking urine‚ minor pain‚ urinary retention‚ the inabity to completely empty the bladder‚ or the constant need to wake up in order to use the bathroom at night.
Saw Palmetto Plus with Nettle Root Extract by Pure Encapsulations provides a blend of several important herbal extracts. The main ingredient is saw palmetto‚ which may help men maintain the effective metabolism and processing of testosterone while possibly lowering levels of an enzyme that promotes prostate cell growth. Additionally‚ saw palmetto extract may contribute to good urinary blood flow.
Furthermore‚ stinging nettles or nettle root may help keep enzyme activity and the hormone metabolism in prostate cells in check‚ which may contribute to prostate health. Saw Palmetto Plus with Nettle Root Extract combines both due to their synergystic potential. At the same time‚ pumpkin seed oil gives the prostate zinc‚ along with essential fatty acids. Finally‚ Pygeum africanum extract can assist in the prostate's metabolism of prolactin hormones and prostaglandins.
Take two to four softgels daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Saw Palmetto Plus with Nettle Root Extract should last from two to four months.

Spendy but worth it!!!
My husband takes Saw Palmetto Plus with Nettle Root Extract under the advice of our physician. Saw Palmetto Plus with Nettle Root Extract helps keep his prostate healthy and helps with the urinary flow. It is more readily absorbed than tablets or capsules and works better too.
