Are you worried about BPH? Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a fancy name for the excessive growth of cells in the prostate, which in turn causes problems with bladder control and urinary function. These problematic cells can only be removed by surgery. However, the good news is that, through the clinically demonstrated efficacy of saw palmetto berries, A. Vogel's Prostate 1 can help slow down or even stop the production of these cells by inhibiting the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This in turn prevents the enzyme from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which in turn slows the prostate cell growth caused by the potent cell-dividing DHT.
Saw palmetto fruit is a small, red, fatty-acid-rich berry the size of an olive. The fatty acids contained in the fruit help reduce or stabilize inflammation of prostate cells. To be effective, the berries must contain a minimum of 85% fatty acids.
Not all products containing saw palmetto fruit are rich in fatty acids, because choosing the right fruit makes all the difference. To retain their high fatty acid content (minimum of 85%) and the product's effectiveness, the saw palmetto fruit A.Vogel chooses is processed within 24 hours of being picked.
How does saw palmetto's effectiveness compare with that of pharmaceutical drugs for the treatment of BPH?
A six-month international clinical trial involving 1,098 patients with moderate BPH symptoms compared the effectiveness of saw palmetto to that of a popular pharmaceutical (Finasteride 5 mg) in reducing symptoms. Both products led to a lower International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), improvement in quality of life and an increase in the maximum urine output with no statistically significant differences between the two products.
