What is in Saw Palmetto with Pumpkin Seed Extract?
Saw Palmetto is an extract derived from the berry of the Saw Palmetto tree and is one of the leading traditional herbs for men’s health. Saw Palmetto has been traditionally used to support prostate and urinary health in men. Our Saw Palmetto combines ingredients of the highest quality to relieve Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as swelling of the prostate gland .
For extra prostate protection, Pumpkin Seed Extract enhances the composition of free fatty acids and augments the benefits Saw Palmetto. This is in part because of their high zinc content, which is important for prostate health (where it is found in the highest concentrations in the body).
Health Benefits Of Saw Palmetto
All men ages 30 or older begin to experience changes in their hormonal balance that can affect the prostate gland. 50% of men will experience BPH, which can lead to an increase in urinary frequency, weak urinary steam, or inability to urinate.
All men, therefore, should consider providing nutritional support for their prostate. Saw Palmetto Extract can reduce prostate enlargement by inhibiting dihydrotestosterone, which stimulates cellular reproduction in the prostate. The wonderful benefits of Saw Palmetto include:
- Lower the chances of developing prostate issues
- Eliminate painful urination and the discomfort
- Speed healing and reduce bleeding for men undergoing prostate surgery.
