Saw Palmetto in BPH.
Saw palmetto berries have been shown to greatly improve the signs and symptoms of BPH. The Saw palmetto berries not only inhibit the formation of dihydrotestosterone, they also inhibit the binding of dihydrotestosterone at cellular binding sites. Enlargement of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) is an extremely common condition that affects more than half the men over 40 years of age. Because the enlarged prostate will pinch off the flow of urine, BPH is characterized by symptoms of bladder obstruction such as increased urinary frequency, night-time awakening to empty bladder, and reduced force and caliber of urination.
If left untreated, BPH will eventually obstruct the bladder outlet resulting in the retention of urine in the blood (uremia). As this is a life-threatening condition, proper treatment is crucial.
