New Statement On Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) By Urologists

The latest study on saw palmetto came on the market which stated that saw palmetto is effective for benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostate problems. Saw palmetto is a popular palm-like tree which produces saw palmetto berries. It is a dark-coloured berry which is used for many medical cases. You might have heard of saw palmetto or saw palmetto supplements in the men's group. Yes, it is highly popular in men, because it is effective in balancing testosterone levels as well as supporting prostate health. Saw palmetto berry or its supplement inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. Hence, it is a DHT blocker. 

Now, came the new statement released by the urologist related to saw palmetto.

After reviewing over 50 original clinical studies, a panel of seven urologists from Europe and the US concluded that saw palmetto supplements can be used to treat men's benign prostatic hyperplasia symptoms.

Experts believe that mild to moderate lower urinary tract symptoms linked to enlarged prostates can be treated with premium saw palmetto extract, also known as Serenoa repens lipidosterol extract and available all over the internet. It is a natural supplement that is easy to find. They conclude that guys with prostate problems should add saw palmetto capsules or supplements to their daily routine.

Jamin Brahmbhatt, MD of the study stated that "There is no worldwide consensus regarding the effectiveness of saw palmetto extract, and recommendations from health organisations around the world vary. The purpose of this expert panel was to contribute to our collective understanding of the science and generate discussion about the role that high-quality saw palmetto extract can play in men's health.

The United States believe- the best-researched natural ingredient for prostate health is the berry from the native saw palmetto plant. However, the main issue influencing how urologists view saw palmetto supplements in patient care has been the variation in product quality commonly found over the counter, particularly in the United States.

Doctors point out that the available data indicates that high-quality lipidosterol extracts with profiles defined in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) monograph are probably crucial for their therapeutic effectiveness.

Dr. J. Curtis Nickell, the lead author, stated, "Our panel recognised that the literature on the benefits of saw palmetto extract for lower urinary tract symptoms is specific to high-quality extracts used at 320 mg daily."

Please be aware that the FDA has not reviewed this statement and that the purpose of this product is not to identify, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
