Man’s Best Friend
- Modern research has shown that saw palmetto inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone
- Supports prostate health
- Standardized concentrate containing 85%-95% fatty acids and sterols
A man’s complex and fragile reproductive system is highly sensitive to imbalances. And now, unfortunately for American men, prostate issues have become an increasingly common topic. Both age and today’s highly industrialized chemical environment are major detriments to the health of the prostate gland.
Fortunately, help comes from the experience of Native Americans who relied on the berries of the saw palmetto tree for strength and vitality throughout their lives. Planetary Herbals Prosta Palmetto is a highly concentrated form of this renowned berry. Developed for standardized potency and convenience, Prosta Palmetto empowers men to defend themselves against the twin onslaught of time and technology.
Hormones and the Prostate Gland
Recent statistics have revealed some alarming findings – the prostate gland has become an issue for men in the industrialized nations. No longer is aging alone to blame. Chemical toxins in our food and environment are rapidly contributing to the rising incidence of diminished prostate function. By their forties, many men experience a hormonal shift that can affect the size of the prostate gland.
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that surrounds the urethra in males. Beginning in their forties, men experience a change in hormone levels that may increase the prostate’s size. This growth is related to a significant increase inside the prostate of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a potent male hormone. As men age, the prostate loses its ability to break down and remove DHT.
The formation of DHT is further increased by certain pesticides, treated foods, synthetic organochlorines, and other “endocrine disrupters” that block or mimic natural hormones. These synthetic hormones are believed to affect the prostate and contribute to lower sperm counts.
Saw palmetto supplements offer support to the prostate gland by offsetting the repercussions of both the natural hormonal shift and the environmental challenge. Recent clinical tests in Europe have demonstrated the benefits of 320 mg of saw palmetto extract as a daily dietary supplement. Prosta Palmetto contains only superior saw palmetto.
Saw Palmetto – Prostate Friendly
For centuries, berries of a small palm tree called saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) were used as food by Native Americans. Its berries are rich in sterols and fatty acids that naturally migrate to the prostate. Here they help prevent the conversion of testosterone to DHT, and accelerate the breakdown and elimination of DHT from prostate tissues. Its natural phytoestrogens also can block artificial estrogen like compounds from accumulating in prostate tissue.
In Europe, saw palmetto extract has been studied in double-blind clinical tests. Men who were given saw palmetto extract showed consistent and statistically significant results. Planetary Herbals Prosta Palmetto is standardized to 85-95% fatty acids and sterols. One tablet contains the amount of saw palmetto used in these recent European studies.

Planetary Herbals Prosta Palmetto is the first line of defense in a men’s health program. The benefits of saw palmetto have been time-tested by traditional cultures and studied by modern clinical research.
