Pygeum & Saw Palmetto - 60 Gels
Pygeum & Saw Palmetto Softgels are an optimum supplement for the support of healthy prostate function.  Psygeum africanum is a tall evergreen native to southern Africa.  The indigenous tribes have used its bark for hundreds of years as an herbal remedy.  Saw Palmetto berries were harvested by Native American tribes from small palm trees that grow in the southeastern U.S. and recently have been the subject of research in Europe and the U.S.  Pumpkin Seed Oil is a source of fatty acids necessary for good 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.

Pygeum improves urinary symptoms associated with BPH, a condition marked by enlargement of the prostate gland. Several studies show that pygeum can significantly reduce urinary frequency and pain with urination in men who suffer from BPH symptoms. Many in the studies reported pygeum reduced the number of times patients need to wake up at night to urinate.

Pumpkin Seed Oil is a nutritional oil rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs).  Pumpkin Seed Oil is also known for its high phytosterol content.  Scientific studies show that the phytosterols present in Pumpkin Seed Oil provide support for a healthy prostate.  NOW Pumpkin Seed Oil is unrefined and derived only fromt he highest quality expeller-pressed pumpkin seeds.

Pumpkin seed oil benefits the reproductive and urinary tract area of the body. Studies are constantly being done in relation to these nutrients having beneficial effects on BPH - Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or enlarged prostate. The fatty acid and plant sterol content of pumpkin seed oil might account for the improved function of the bladder and urethra, which may account for BPH symptom relief.

The nutrients in pumpkin seed oil affect kidney stone formation by reducing levels of substances that promote stone formation and increasing levels of compounds that inhibit stone formation. It is commonly been used to treat a variety of kidney problems as well urinary problems, gastritis and the expelling of tapeworms and roundworms.

The lubricating effects of the essential fatty acids and antioxidant content are the likely reason relief is found by arthritis sufferers. These same nutrients are also lower the overall blood cholesterol content by lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) levels and increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels. The antioxidants in the forms of Vitamin A and E are also useful in maintaining skin health.
