|Super Saw Palmetto with Beta-Sitosterol|
Published studies suggest that a remarkably high percentage of men will endure some form of prostate-induced discomfort over the course of their lifetimes.45,46
Decades of research47,48 substantiate saw palmetto as the gold standard in natural prostate support. Through a novel scientific advance, Life Extension now offers an ultra high-potency formula unlike typical saw palmetto extracts.
The saw palmetto berry (Serenoa repens) is rich in bioactive, high-molecular weight compounds including beta-sitosterol. It has been shown to interfere with DHT activity in the prostate, inhibit alpha-adrenergic receptor activity (to support normal urinary flow), and help control inflammatory actions in the prostate gland.14-16
DeepExtract™ is a patented, ultra-high pressure CO2 technology engineered to recover far greater amounts of bioactive, high-molecular weight fatty acids from the saw palmetto berry during the extraction process. The result is a superior formula containing key ingredients in higher concentrations than many other extracts.17
These naturally occurring substances are left behind by more widely used low-pressure CO2 extraction techniques. DeepExtract™ ensures the most desirable and complete bioactive extract profile available. The result is a formula that most closely resembles the composition of premium, mature saw palmetto berries. For individuals seeking a supplement that contains nettle root, Super Saw Palmetto/Nettle Root Formula with Beta-Sitosterol combines ultra-potent Deep Extract™ saw palmetto with a methanolic nettle root extract and boron to support a healthy prostate.32,42-44,50-56
This saw palmetto extract has been standardized to contain 85% free fatty acids and sterols. Aqueous 20% methanolic stinging nettle extract contains no residual methane.
A high-potency phytosterol complex has also been added to supply a natural ratio of concentrated plant sterols (including beta-sitosterol) derived from vegetable and seed oils such as soybean, rapeseed, sunflower seed, and corn.
