What is Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)?
Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) is a problem affecting men starting from age 40. By the age of 50, 50% of men are affected and at age 80, 95% of men will have symptoms that include frequent bathroom visits, unable to empty the bladder and reduction in urinary flow and pain during urination. Contrary to popular belief, BPH is not a swelling (hypertrophy) but an increase in the number of cells (hyperplasia) in the prostate. Aside from surgery, no treatments can reduce the number of cells. However, the symptoms can be effectively treated and BPH progression can be reduced and even stopped. The clinical picture of BPH contains many elements including tissue inflammation, an increase of the estrogen/testosterone ratio and spasms of the urinary sphincters. BPH is due in part to a transformation of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that is 10 times more potent, by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. DHT is so potent that is stimulates prostate cell division.
How does Saw Palmetto work?
Saw Palmetto is by far the most studied and most effective medicinal herb to treat benign prostate hyperplasia symptoms. It contains many active components: some water soluble, like flavonoids, tannins and sugars, and some fat soluble, like carotene, sterols, fatty acids and fatty alcohols. These fat soluble molecules are demonstrated to be the most active in BPH treatment. The extracts in the studies were standardized to 80 to 95% fat soluble components. Saw Palmetto inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, therefore reducing DHT production and has an anti-inflammatory effect Moreover, Saw Palmetto has an antispasmodic effect that could improve urinary symptoms. Sabalasan® Prostate 1 delivers a Saw Palmetto fruit standardized to 80 to 95% of these components in a convenient capsule form.
