Background and Use

Saw Palmetto was traditionally used by Native Americans and in the 19th Century, it was used by naturopaths for the Genitourinary system or endocrine-related health. Often prescribed in Europe, Saw Palmetto is now the most commonly used alternative herb used for prostate health in the U.S.

The key constituents in Saw Palmetto maintain urinary and prostate function by promoting healthy testosterone levels and normal fluid levels in the body.

The chart below compares the ingredients supplied by a daily dose of a standardized extract versus whole organic berry.

Saw Palmetto Chart

We have analyzed the organic Saw Palmetto berries several times and have found the results to be consistently around 14% fatty acids. Therefore, at the suggested dose of 4 capsules a day, this provides the 328 mg of fatty acids & sterols, which is just above the clinical dose used in the studies. Moreover, since the material is not altered to resemble a drug (like many of the saw palmetto products that are standardized to 85%), our product supplies all the other beneficial compounds such as ferulic acid, polysaccharides, flavonoids, resins and essential oils.
