Solgar Saw Palmetto Berries Vegicaps are a full potency product.
Saw Palmetto is one of the most important, if not the most important, herbs for men due to its ability to treat prostate enlargement.
PROSTATE PROTECTIVE - Most men over 50 suffer with enlargement of the prostate gland known as benign prostate hyperplasia or hypertrophy (BPH). BPH appears to be caused by an elevation of the powerful androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and oestrogen in prostate tissue. Saw Palmetto is clinically proven to treat prostate enlargement and its associated symptoms such as requent urination, difficulty or pain when passing urine and impotence. The active fatty acids and sterols of this plant have been found to inhibit DHT's transport and binding to cell receptors, as well as reducing the activity of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme needed for eostrogen production and for conversion of testosterone to DHT.
OVARIAN PROTECTIVE - The clinical recearch into the ability of Saw Palmetto to treat BPH may have far-reaching implications for treatment of certain female hormonal dysfunctions, especially polycystic ovaries. This increasingly common condition is also associated with elevated DHT and oestrogen, and thus may be very responsive to Saw Palmetto therapy.
DHT INHIBITOR IN 'MALE PATTERN' BALDNESS - It appears that elevated levels of DHT in the scalp trigger the primary mechanism of male pattern baldness. Although clinical research is currently lacking with respect to this use of Saw Palmetto, the theory behind its use for this purpose is sound (although the required dosage may well differ from that which has been shown to be effective in BPH).
DHT INHIBITOR IN HORMONALLY-INDUCED HAIR LOSS (WOMEN) - As with male-pattern baldness, elevated DHT can also lead to 'male pattern' hair loss in women, suggesting a potential value to Saw Palmetto. Not surprisingly, this problem appears to be especially common in women who suffer with polycystic ovaries.
DHT INHIBITOR IN EXCESSIVE FACIAL AND BODY HAIR (WOMEN) - DHT also appears to tbe the prominent factor in women suffering with excessive facial and/or body hair. This condition often, though not always, accompanies hormonally-induced hair loss and polycystic ovaries and may warrant the use of Saw Palmetto.
