What is Now Foods Saw Palmetto Extract?

Natural Saw Palmetto extract comes from the berries of small palm trees. The extracts are comprised of various saturated and unsaturated fatty acids (no cholesterol) and sterols. The sterols contain beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol. Both appear to be active components of Saw Palmetto berries.

Saw Palmetto is a popular extract used by men.

The Saw Palmetto palm trees bearing berries are found in the Southeastern United States. Bodybuilding.com sells only high-quality pharmaceutical-grade Saw Palmetto extract.

What does it do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?

Many studies have been done that confirm its beneficial effects in treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a condition where the prostate gland may grow from the size of a walnut to as large as a small orange. Although this condition is not malignant, it can cause a blockage of the urethra and require surgery. Specifically, Saw Palmetto has been found to prevent the binding of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to androgen receptors by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into DHT. DHT appears to be a major factor in the onset of BPH.

Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency?

Many men above the age of 50 experience BPH; therefore, supplementing with saw palmetto can be extremely beneficial.

What Are the Side effects of Saw Palmetto?

What is Recommended Dosage of Saw Palmetto?
Many different preparations of saw palmetto are on the market, some of which are standardized to phytosterols whereas other are standardized to fatty acids. It is best to do research to obtain the product that best describes the content of various active ingredients. Routinely, a twice-daily dose of 160 milligram of saw palmetto extract standardized to 85% fatty acids and sterols is recommended. From this, the amounts necessary for optimal beneficial effects can be calculated, given the percent standardization of any product.
