Properties of Prostate Support?
The Prostate Support formula contains the following ingredients:
- 160mg of Saw Palmetto extract (Serenoa repens) (Min. 85% fatty acids) per dose. This substance is incorporated from the extract of the fruit of a small palm tree (Serenoa repens). In the following revision, there are a few articles about 'Serenoa repens extract in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia'. 'The articles were analysed with regard to their relevance, scientific value and the size of the evaluated series. Multiple mechanisms of action have been attributed to this extract, including antiandrogenic action, an anti-inflammatory/anti-oedematous effect, prolactin signal modulation, and an antiproliferative effect exerted through the inhibition of growth factors. [...] Most of the published trials regarding Serenoa repens phytotherapy demonstrate a significant improvement of urinary status and a favourable safety profile. Also, some authors have credited it with giving a significant improvement in erectile function and decreasing complications following transurethral resection of the prostate, especially bleeding. The results of phytotherapy with Serenoa repens extracts are very promising.' (1)
