Saw palmetto, which was officially included in the US Pharmacopeia in 1906 and the National Formulary in 1926, is one of the most researched herbal products for prostate health1-4.*

A number of modern studies and meta analyses worldwide evaluated the positive effects of the components of Saw palmetto, and today, more is known about its beneficial effects on normal prostate and UT function than ever before5.* It contains a large variety of fatty acids (auric, caprylic, and caproic) and sterols (beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol, cycloartenol, lupeol, lupenone, and methylcycloartenol), which support the normal prostate gland structure and healthy urinary (UT) function6,7.* According to other studies, Saw palmetto may support normal levels of testosterone8.*
