About Saw Palmetto Plus™:
*The extracts in this formula nutritionally support the health of the prostate gland. Saw palmetto has been used safely for decades to support proper prostate and urinary function. Its primary mode of action involves maintaining healthy testosterone metabolism. Pygeum africanum has been shown to modulate prostaglandin and prolactin metabolism in the prostate. Pumpkin seed oil provides essential fatty acids and zinc, important for prostate health. Nettle root, also known as stinging nettles or Urtica dioica, has demonstrated the ability to decrease enzyme activity and maintain healthy hormone metabolism in prostate cells.
In studies, nettle root modulates human sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and aromatase activity. It has also been shown to maintain healthy Na+K+-ATP-ase function in prostate cells. Numerous clinical studies involving nettle root have been conducted in Germany. In an open, multi-center study involving 253 men, nettle root maintained proper SHBG activity. The outcome of a controlled, double-blind study with 72 men suggested that nettle root supported healthy urinary flow. In a multi-center study examining the effect of nettle root extract in over 5,000 individuals, the extract supported prostate health in the majority of subjects. Other studies suggest support for healthy urinary volume, subjective and objective parameters, and well-tolerated long-term supplementation.
Saw Palmetto Plus™ with nettle root extract provides a combination of well- researched natural extracts for supporting the health and function of the prostate gland.
