Saw Palmetto, 80mg, 90 caps.
With Pumpkin Seed Oil & Zinc
Native Americans and early American settlers used the Saw Palmetto berries to treat problems associated with the urinary tract and reproductive system. This herb is called the "plant catheter" due to its therapeutic effect on the neck of the bladder and the prostate in men. Saw Palmetto is widely used for nutritionally benefiting the prostate and urinary tract. It has been marketed as an aphrodisiac for both men and women and has a long held reputation as a sexual stimulant and aphrodisiac. The largest use today is as a supplement for reducing enlarged prostate glands, treating urinary tract problems and for improving body strength.
Saw Palmetto is one of the few herbal remedies that are considered to be anabolic - it strengthens and builds body tissues.
For men it treats an enlarged and weakened prostate gland. It has shown significant action in treatment of conditions associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Saw palmetto extract works to prevent testosterone from converting into dihydrotestosterone, the hormone thought to cause prostrate cells to multiply, leading to an enlarged prostate. It is chiefly used as a diuretic and to tone the bladder by improving urinary flow, and relieving strain. Regular use of saw palmetto may decrease urinary frequency, especially during the night, by allowing complete bladder expulsion and reducing inflammation of the bladder and enlarged prostrate.
"...the evidence suggests that S repens (Saw Palmetto) improves urologic symptoms and flow measures. Compared with finasteride, S repens produces similar improvement in urinary tract symptoms and urinary flow and was associated with fewer adverse treatment events." (JAMA 11/11/98, The Journal of the American Medical Association).
It has also been recommended in treatment of diseases that deprive the body of strength and growth. Preliminary evidence exists to also suggest saw palmetto may also aid those suffering from thyroid deficiency. Saw palmetto is a good expectorant for use in clearing chest congestion and can be used to treat coughs, asthma, and bronchitis.
Saw Palmetto has also been used to stimulate appetite, improve digestion, nourish the nervous system and increase the assimilation of nutrients to the body.
