After the age of 40, the risk of prostate and related urinary system problems begin to increase for men. While this is a very personal subject, the National Institutes of Health has declared benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) as the most common prostate problem in the United States. Fifty percent of men between the ages of 51 and 60 have BPT, and as many as 14 million men having lower urinary tract symptoms related to BPH.
BPH is a condition in which the prostate gland is enlarged. Scientific studies suggest a hormone imbalance may be the culprit. When a man ages, decreased testosterone levels leave a higher proportion of estrogen within the prostate. In turn, this imbalance increases the activity of substances that promote prostate cell growth. Other studies suggest the accumulation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone that plays a role in prostate development and growth, also encourages prostate cells to grow. In any event, the enlarged prostate gland may press against and pinch the urethra which contributes to bladder and kidney infections and more serious problems.
Saw Palmetto has been a very successful alternative to conventional medicines when it comes to treating BPH and related urinary conditions. Additionally, studies have shown it is one of the top natural remedies for the condition as well as for prostate cancer, hair loss, and retaining testosterone levels. With each 500 milligram serving of Natura Saw Palmetto, male hormone metabolism is optimized and healthy prostate gland function is promoted.

Natura Saw Palmetto Supports Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). According to the American Urological Association®, more than 50 percent of men over the age of 60 will have BPH which is the most common form of an enlarged prostate. That percentage also increases with age as 90 percent will have it by the age of 85. BPH is a major risk factor for sexual dysfunction, and typical symptoms also lead to urinary discomfort, bladder infections, as well as stones in the bladder. Hormonal changes, deteriorating blood vessels, and zinc deficiency are some of the circumstances that lead to BPH. In 2013, the Phytotherapy Research journal reported the first trial study indicating Saw Palmetto to show improvement in BPH symptoms, as well as sexual dysfunction. Patients of the 8-week study took 320 milligrams of Saw Palmetto extract daily. At the end of the treatment, the International Prostate Symptom Score was reduced from 14.4 ± 4.7 to 6.9 ± 5.2. By inhibiting testosterone from binding and stimulating prostate cells, Saw Palmetto reduces prostatic cells from multiplying and causing enlargement of the gland.
Natura Saw Palmetto Promotes a Healthy Prostate. Supplementing with Saw Palmetto has been identified as one of the five commonly used forms of alternative medicine for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer, according to a systematic literature review of 11 studies published in Nutrients. The International Journal of Oncology also indicated Saw Palmetto to be “useful for the treatment of individuals with prostate cancer.” Saw Palmetto was found to inhibit growth destroy dangerous prostate cancer cells (LNCaP, DU145, and PC3), as well as down-regulate DHT – the hormone that leads to prostate enlargement.
Natura Saw Palmetto Remedies Hair Loss. Testosterone hormone levels naturally decrease, while the DHT hormone increases, in men as they age. When DHT levels increase, hair loss is a risk. Follicles shrink which reduces its life span and decreases hair production. Saw Palmetto is beneficial for hair growth as it stops the conversion of testosterone to DHT. A very recent study published in Australasian Journal of Dermatology indicated Saw Palmetto as an alternative treatment to standard medications for male androgenetic alopecia. Volunteers, aged 20 to 50 years, received the supplement for 24 weeks. The average and terminal hair count increased at weeks 12 and 24 compared to baseline. Studies suggest the use of Saw Palmetto beyond four weeks for sustained efficacy.
Natura Saw Palmetto Retains Testosterone Levels. Many variables in modern life contribute to the rapidly growing decline in male testosterone levels. This results in chronic fatigue, a low libido, hair loss, and depression. Because the conversion of testosterone to DHT is inhibited with the use of Saw Palmetto, the body maintains balanced testosterone levels with Saw Palmetto, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Along with a study published in Phytotherapy Research, the supplement has also shown to have high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity./ Benefits of balanced testosterone levels include strong muscles and bones, controlled weight, healthy heart and blood, better libido, and improved mood.
Natura Saw Palmetto Supports the Urological System. Saw Palmetto has been shown to be supportive for men with BPH as the condition affects the urinary system. However, the supplement has also proven beneficial for treating women after menopause and older people with weakening urinary organs. For the first time at clinical level, Saw Palmetto was very recently reported in the Prostate journal to have anti-inflammatory properties that prevent unfavorable evolution in patients with chronic prostatic inflammation – including lower urinary tract symptoms.
