Here Comes The Answer 34…The BPH

Here Comes The Answer 34…The BPH

Here Comes The Answer 34…The BPHMy investigations so far has proven that saw palmetto is not indigenous to Nigeria, though I would appreciate a better information proving otherwise.
There so many product that contains saw palmetto but the ultimate question lies in my 3red quote here.Investigators have carried out research on certain product to ascertain the veracity of saw palmetto being present in the final product, and one or two of them passed.
The propagators of saw palmetto claimed as outlined below
What is it saw palmetto?
Saw palmetto is a plant. Its ripe fruit is used to make medicine. Saw palmetto is best known for its use in decreasing symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hypertrophy, BPH). According to many
research studies, it is effective for this use.
Saw palmetto is used for treating certain types of prostate infections. It is also sometimes used, in combination with other herbs, to treat prostate cancer. Some people use saw palmetto for colds and coughs, sore throat, asthma,
chronic bronchitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and migraine headache. It is also used to increase urine flow (as a diuretic), to promote relaxation (as a sedative), and to enhance sexual drive (as an aphrodisiac).
How effective is it?
Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective,Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate.
The effectiveness ratings for SAW PALMETTO are as follows:
Possibly effective for
Prostate surgery (trans urethral resection of the prostate; TURP) . Research
shows that taking 320 mg of saw palmetto daily for 2 months before prostate surgery can reduce the time spent in surgery, blood loss, the development of problems during surgery, and the total time spent in the hospital. However, one small study found that taking 160 mg daily 5 weeks before surgery does not lower the risk of problems during surgery.
Possibly ineffective for...
Enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia; BPH) . There is conflicting and contradictory research about the benefits of saw palmetto for prostate symptoms. Some research has shown that saw palmetto might modestly improve symptoms such as going to the bathroom at night in some men with BPH. However, higher quality and more reliable research seems to indicate that saw palmetto has little or no benefit for reducing these symptoms. Any benefit is modest at best.
Insufficient evidence to rate effectiveness for
Prostate swelling and chronic pelvic pain syndrome . Some early research
found that saw palmetto can improve prostate swelling symptoms. Other early research found that taking saw palmetto, selenium, and lycopene, but not saw palmetto alone, can improve symptoms of prostate swelling and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Taking certain herbal combinations containing saw palmetto seems to improve the effects of sparfloxacin or prulifloxacin in treating prostate swelling symptoms due to infection. However, saw palmetto doesn’t seem to improve prostate swelling symptoms not due to infection.
Prostate cancer .
Research studies to date have found that taking saw palmetto doesn’t seem to prevent prostate cancer.
Baldness . Some men report that using saw palmetto with beta-sitosterol makes them grow more and better hair. read more
