Prostate Plus Saw Palmetto
Prostate Plus For MenÂ® is a synergistic formula containing Pygeum Africanum, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Zinc Gluconate with Saw Palmetto as the primary ingredient which has been used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), an enlargement of the prostate gland that affects about half of all men older than fifty.Â BPH is a noncancerous growth of the prostate gland.Â If the prostate grows in mature men, it pinches the urethra, or urine tube, and problems begin, including painful urination and frequent nighttime trips to the bathroom.Â Researchers estimate that BPH affects about ten million men in the United States â€” some in their forties, half of all men older than fifty, and four out of every five men older than eighty.
Research conducted in Europe since the beginning of the 1980â€™s shows that saw palmetto reduced by nearly 50 percent the number of times BPH sufferers had to get up to go to the bathroom during the night and significantly reduced painful of difficult urination.Â More recently, researchers compared a saw palmetto extract with finasteride, the conventional BPH drug.Â The study involved 1,098 men diagnosed with BPH, and researchers concluded that both treatments relieved BPH symptoms in about two-thirds of the men.Â But while the finasteride reduced the prostate size it also decreased sex drive and potency.Â Saw palmetto didnâ€™t show a significant reduction in prostate size, but the men taking the herb did not see a deduction in sex drive or impotency.Â Before scientists turned their microscopes to saw palmetto, Native Americans used the berries as a general tonic and to treat impotence.*
