Are you suffering from an Enlarged prostate?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, is a histologic diagnosis characterised by the proliferation of the cellular elements of the prostate. Chronic bladder outlet obstruction secondary to BPH may lead to urinary retention, renal insufficiency, recurrent urinary tract infections, gross hematuria, and bladder calculi.



When the prostate enlarges it may constrict the flow of urine. Nerves within the prostate and bladder may also play a role in causing the following common symptoms:

Urinary frequency.

Urinary urgency.

Hesitancy - Difficulty initiating the urinary stream; interrupted, weak stream.

Incomplete bladder emptying - The feeling of persistent residual urine, regardless of the frequency of urination.

Straining - The need to strain or push to initiate and maintain urination in order to more fully evacuate the bladder.

Decreased force of stream - The subjective loss of force of the urinary stream over time.

Dribbling - The loss of small amounts of urine due to a poor urinary stream.

SAW PALMETTO is an extract of the fruit of Serenoa repens. It is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols. It has been used in traditional, eclectic, and alternative medicine to treat a variety of conditions, most notably benign prostatic hyperplasia  (BPH).

Saw Palmetto has been long been used to treat enlarged prostate. According to a report, more than two million American men use Saw Palmetto for enlarged prostate. Many studies report that Saw Palmetto may be as effective as the hormonal agent finasteride and may cause fewer side effects when used to treat bladder problems. The available evidence suggests that it may be an effective treatment for enlarged prostate.

Saw Palmetto is also used for other conditions, including chronic pelvic pain, bladder disorders, decreased sex drive, hair loss, and hormone imbalances.



Few side effects of Saw Palmetto are noted in published scientific literature. Few adverse effects or allergic reactions are associated with Saw Palmetto extract use. The most common are gastrointestinal, some of which may be reduced by taking the extract with food.

A study found that there may be a lack of herb-drug interactions associated with Saw Palmetto. Overall, there appear to be few safety concerns with short-term use of Saw Palmetto. It appears to be well tolerated by most people for up to 3-5 years.


The following doses have been recommended in scientific research:

By Mouth:

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): 500 mg once daily.

For the treatment of bald spots: 500 mg once daily combined with beta-sitosterol 50 mg twice daily.
