Saw Palmetto Extract Function
Benefits for Prostate Health
Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) is a common condition that becomes increasingly prevalent in aging men. BPH affects 8% of all men at the age of 40, 60% of men in their seventies, and 90% of men in their eighties.
One fourth of these men will develop moderate-to-severe lower urinary tract symptoms that will greatly affect their quality of life.
The prostate glands sole function is to secrete fluid containing substances needed for reproduction.
This process requires an extremely high concentration of androgen hormones in the prostatic tissues. BPH seems to be related to the prostates long-term exposure to the strong androgen , as well as to estrogens.
The enzyme necessary to convert into DHT is called 5-alpha-reductase.
Research has shown that saw palmetto is an effective inhibitor of 5-alpha-reductase activity in prostate gland tissue.2-6 In patients with BPH, saw palmetto relieved urinary symptoms as effectively as the pharmaceutical 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, finasteride.
In addition to inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase activity, saw palmetto exerts anti-inflammatory effects that also may have complementary effects on prostate health.
