Saw Palmetto Berries and Men
Saw palmetto berries are available in extract form as a supplement to help men both treat and avoid problems relating to their lower urinary tract, particularly benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlargement of the prostate. This is not the only condition that causes such problems, but is common in men over a certain age. Taking the view that prevention is better, easier and less painful than cure, a supplement of saw palmetto berries in capsule form can help men to avoid such problems.
Only men understand the embarrassment of being unable to produce when standing at a public urinal, and saw palmetto berries can help to prevent red faces. However, no matter how humiliating the public embarrassment may seem at the time, of even more worry should be the potential blockage of the urethra. This would place an unbearably painful pressure on it and on the bladder, then ultimately on the kidney. A supplement of saw palmetto berries can help to prevent this happening and you need not wait until the symptoms start to appear. Prevention is definitely better than cure in this case!
Saw Palmetto and Your Prostate Gland
The prostate gland is an essential component of the male reproductive system, producing and excreting the seminal fluid needed as a vehicle for the spermatozoa secreted by the testes. The prostate sits around the urethra, the narrow tube responsible for carrying urine leading from the bladder to the outside world. Both men and women have a urethra, but only men have a prostate, which is why saw palmetto is generally promoted for male health.
As men age, the prostate can tend to swell, and in so doing partially block the urethra leading to difficulty in urination. This can manifest in a great difficult to commence urination, after which it becomes easier once started, or be so serious as to prevent it altogether when surgery is needed. By taking a supplement of saw palmetto berries in capsule form, it is possible to allay or at reduce the effects of an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Many men take saw palmetto long before they have reached the average age for prostate problems and in so doing tend to avoid the condition, or at least delay it and its severity.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 or 3 capsules two times a day with meals or a glass of water.
