Natural Factors Saw Palmetto Berries
The berries of the saw palmetto plant have been used traditionally to enhance male urinary and reproductive health. Saw palmetto is a natural treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a common condition in men over 50. BPH can cause urinary problems and is a risk factor for prostate cancer.
Almost every man over 45 years old experiences some enlargement of the prostate gland, which is the small male sex glands that encompass the urethra.
An enlarged or inflamed prostate can affect sexual function and hinder normal urine flow.
Pain, burning, and difficulty urinating as well as frequent nighttime urination are all symptoms associated with BPH. The chemical reaction of converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone is a contributor to prostate enlargement and its associated symptoms. Saw Palmetto extract may aid in the prevention of the conversion.
Although Saw Palmetto extract is primarily used by men with prostate problems, it may also benefit women with conditions like hirsutism (excess facial hair) and polycystic ovarian disease, which are caused by an excess of androgen.
