Saw Palmetto extract has been in the forefront with researchers and the public alike in every day conversations among those who are concerned about prostate health issues.
Mothers talk to their sons about it. Fathers tell their sons to look for it. And Wives encourage their spouses to include saw palmetto extract as part of their daily diet. There are several online outlets where you can purchase products that promote the extract as either the core or supporting ingredient. Sites like Amazon, Hi-Health, and other outlets make it easy to get nearly any saw palmetto product focused on offering results for just about any concern you might have. And under some very good labels. But any chemist or nutritional scientist will tell you that it’s not what’s in the product that counts, but rather how the elements of the product derivatives blend together that produce or don’t produce effective results.
Parameters and specifications of any mix of ingredients or single element should all be considered as a major reason when it comes to purity, performance, and safety of the product. When it comes to saw palmetto extract, parameter specifications should meet at least the industry standards.
- What is the stalk plant?
- What part of the stock plant is used?
- What is the ratio of what content?
- What is the description of raw materials?
- What’s the purity percentage or grade of extract used in the product?
Research studies from sources like the *University of Maryland Medical Center admit that researchers aren’t really sure how saw palmetto extract works. But they believe that the plant-based chemicals it contains may be effective for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) when combined with nettle extract. They also believe that it influences testosterone levels. Researchers believe that the extract may be responsible for reducing the production level of an enzyme in your body that promotes the growth of prostate cells.
According to the UMMC report, studies on animals have shown the extract effectively inhibits growth of tumor cells. These results show researchers that saw palmetto extract may be effective in treating prostate cancer.
The Uniscience Group has studied the benefits of the extract. Saw palmetto extract is used extensively in many of the men’s health products they provide. Herbal extracts, minerals and amino acids, and natural plant factors are all used to support normal prostate function and to relieve the symptoms that often go with prostate health issues. These elements are found in products they have developed like what you’ll find in Super-Prostall.
A Uniscience Group product developed by doctors, Super-Pro-stall contains saw palmetto extract-based product developed for the purpose to aid at reversing prostate difficulties but without the typical side-effects that can usually go along with prescriptions drugs.
