NOW Saw Palmetto Extract 320 mg - 90 Softgels (Code 4756)

 
  • Supports Prostate Health
  • Highest Potency Standardized Extract
  • Important for Men over 40

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) is a low-growing palm tree native to the southeastern United States.  Saw Palmetto contains a number of beneficial compounds, including flavonoids, sterols and fatty acids that may support prostate health.


Benign enlargement of the prostate is a condition that affects millions of men, including well over 50% of men over age 60. While this condition is usually harmless, for some men it can hinder healthy urinary function and possibly lead to more serious side effects if ignored.

Fortunately, there is something that can be done to encourage healthy prostate function. NOW Saw Palmetto delivers 160 mg of premium saw palmetto extract, and is naturally rich in bioflavonoids, sterols and fatty acids – all shown to help support optimal prostate health.

The action of saw palmetto has been well studied, and the herb is popular in the treatment of prostate enlargement. Enlargement of the prostate gland affects millions of men older than 50 years of age, causing difficulty with urination and a sensation of swelling in the low pelvis or rectal area.

Research has shown that saw palmetto inhibits one of the active forms of testosterone in the body (dihydrotestosterone) from stimulating cellular reproduction in the prostate gland. Saw palmetto inhibits testosterone from binding to and thereby stimulating prostate cells. This serves to reduce multiplication of prostatic cells and reduces prostatic enlargement.

Saw palmetto is recommended to treat weakening urinary organs and the resulting incontinence that may occur in elderly people or women after menopause. Saw palmetto strengthens the urinary organs and has been recommended for kidney stones.
