Life Extension PalmettoGuard Saw Palmetto with Beta-Sitosterol: Published studies suggest that a remarkably high percentage of men will endure some form of prostate-induced discomfort over the course of their lifetimes. Decades of research substantiate saw palmetto as the gold standard in natural prostate support.
The saw palmetto berry (Serenoa repens) is rich in bioactive, high-molecular weight compounds including beta-sitosterol. It has been shown to interfere with DHT activity in the prostate, inhibit alpha-adrenergic receptor activity (to support normal urinary flow), and help regulate inflammatory actions in the prostate gland.
PalmettoGuard Saw Palmetto/Nettle Root Formula with Beta-Sitosterol combines saw palmetto with a nettle root extract, boron, and rosemary to support a healthy prostate. Testosterone converts to oestrogen at higher rates as men age. Prostate cells are sensitive to oestrogen's growth stimulatory effects. Nettle root helps support prostate cells against excess oestrogen levels.
This saw palmetto extract has been standardized to contain 136 milligrams total fatty acids and sterols per one softgel capsule.
