How it works :
The condition of an enlarged prostate is commonly found in men over the age of 50.
This enlargement is the result of the cells in the prostate reacting to increasing levels of inflammatory hormones in the male body.
Cells of the prostate enlarge, which in turn cause the whole gland to increase in size.
Saw Palmetto prevents the production of specific inflammatory hormones and dampens the inflammatory response of the prostate cells.
This is a local effect, confined to the prostate gland.
What is it used for?
For the relief of urinary discomfort in men with an enlarged prostate (BPH)
The need to urinate frequently (especially at night)
Weak or interrupted urinary flow
