For prostate health
The mechanism by which serenoa works is not fully understood but most likely involve inhibition of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase and also binding to androgen receptor sites in prostate cells. The berry fruits of serenoa are rich in free fatty acids and a mixture of sterol compounds, including beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol (phytosterols).
Although investigation to determine the exact mechanism of action is ongoing, these components are considered to be the pharmacologically active compounds in serenoa, and their levels are standardised in quality preparations.
The free fatty acids may help to balance the often abnormal lipid ratios found in the prostate and seminal fluid of some benign prostatic hypertrophy patients.
. May be of assistance for the temporary relief of all major symptoms and signs of BPH including urinary frequency, nocturia, flow rate, dysuria and residual urine volume.
