BROAD SUPPORT FOR URINARY FUNCTION AND PROSTATE HEALTH‡
Saw palmetto has been used safely for decades to support proper prostate and urinary function. Its primary mode of action involves
maintaining healthy testosterone metabolism. In a recently published JAMA meta-analysis involving 18 randomized controlled trials and almost 3,000 men, saw palmetto promoted healthy urinary flow. Pygeum africanum may maintain healthy prostaglandin and prolactin metabolism in the prostate. Pumpkin seed oil provides essential fatty acids and zinc, important for prostate health. Nettle root, also known as stinging nettles or Urtica dioica, has indicated the ability to support healthy enzyme activity and maintain healthy hormone metabolism in prostate cells. In a multicenter study examining the effect of nettle root extract in over 5,000 individuals, the extract supported prostate health in the majority of subjects.

Dr. W's Comments: It’s a good product for those who have been told they have some prostate hypertrophy – an enlarging prostate. As herbalists have known for centuries, different herbs help different organs. In this support we have four herbs that work well together. I personally like the fact that there is pumpkin seed oil in it. It’s been shown to be useful for sex organ issues. I like to tell my patients that pumpkin seeds have a more primitive oil in them then olive and other oils we might use. Our sex organs are that most primitive part of us – it enjoys having the more primitive parts of life’s full spectrum of nutrients. The herbs pygeum, saw palmetto and nettles are also included because of the value they have been shown to have for the prostate along with other men’s health concerns.
