Functions of Saw Palmetto Pygeum Plus in the body
- Supports and maximizes prostate health
- Supports healthy sexual function in both men and women
Saw palmetto is a herb and has been seen to strengthen the immune system. Its primary use is for prostate health in men but women can use it as well for improved sexual function.
This supreme mix helps support normal urinary flow, suppress DHT activity in the prostate gland, as well as help regulate inflammatory actions.
As men age, the cells in their prostate gland can begin to overgrow. This will cause swelling that obstructs the bladder, resulting in slow urination and emptying of the bladder. This non-malignant enlargement of the prostate puts pressure on the urethra, making the urinary stream weak, uncomfortable and hesitant. Other symptoms are frequency and urgency to urinate at during the night, resulting in disturbed sleep.
A man aged 31 to 40 only has approximately an 8% chance of having benign prostate enlargement, whereas the risk increases to 40-50% in men aged 51 to 60, and to over 80% in men older than 80.
