Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate. Although this condition is rarely serious, it can cause an iterruption of sleep due to frequency of urination and difficulty of passing urine. Research studies have shown that Saw Palmetto is especially effective at relieving urination problems caused by an enlarged prostate. The FDA has not recognized Saw Palmetto as effective, but in Germany, it is used to treat BPH.
Vista Natural Wellness Saw Palmetto Pygeum Plus product also contains the herb Pygeum aficanum, which has similar properties to Saw Palmetto and works synergistically to help with the urinary tract symptoms of BPH.
