The prostate is a doughnut shaped gland about the size of a chestnut and is part of the male reproductive system. The gland surrounds the urethra, which carries urine from the bladder. In older men, particularly those over 50, enlargement of the prostate may occur - a condition known as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). The cause of this enlargement is an increased sensitivity of the prostatic cells to the levels of testosterone circulating in the body. BPH causes a disturbance to the flow of urine resulting in frequent urination, particularly in the middle of the night (a condition known as nocturia), poor or painful urine flow and dribbling. Saw Palmetto has a proven beneficial action on the prostate gland and is able to reduce prostate enlargement without any of the side effects connected to conventional prostate medication. The active constituents within Saw Palmetto are fat soluble and exist naturally in an oily state. Bioforce uses special extraction methods to ensure that these active constituents are not lost during extraction, ensuring that Prostasan is a very effective remedy. Saw Palmetto is made from the oily berries of the Saw Palm, which is to be found in the Florida Everglades. The uses of this dwarf palm were known to the Seminole and it was from these Native Americans that Alfred Vogel learned about the plant during his visit to the USA in the 1950s. The Saw Palms, which provide the berries for this remedy, are carefully husbanded in their native habitat using an organic protocol and are protected from other pollutants.What is it used for?
