Natural support for a healthy prostate and balanced testosterone levels

320 mg of a potent Saw Palmetto standardized extract for optimal efficacy

Size matters, but bigger isn’t always better: Consider the prostate. As men age, it keeps growing, eventually putting the squeeze on the nearby urethra (Oh hello neighbor, don’t mind me). A prostate that grows too big will create bottlenecks in the urethra. Frequent urination, difficulty starting a urine stream and dribbling become things.

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) is the medical name for this condition. By age 85, 90 percent of men will have it, with many seeing the first signs in their forties and fifties 1. But if an apple a day keeps the GP away, look to Saw Palmetto to keep the urologist away.

Some research has shown 2,3 that the berries of the Saw Palmetto plant contain ingredients that inhibit production of the hormone responsible for enlarging the prostate: DHT 4. Less DHT means slower prostate growth and more room for the urethra. Studies 5,6 also show that Saw Palmetto may help to increase testosterone levels, which play an essential role in libido as well as hair growth 7. Booyah!

One Capsule of Saw Palmetto Per Day for Prostate Health Support

Balance Testosterone Levels

Saw Palmetto has been shown to disrupt the enzyme that converts testosterone into a hormone called DHT.2,10 Less conversion to DHT suggests your body will retain more testosterone, the hormone that’s essential for regulating metabolism, strength, energy levels, hair growth, libido and more.7

Improve Sexual Function

Testosterone levels play an important role in sex drive and erectile function. If you want to keep enjoying a healthy sex life as you age, Saw Palmetto may help give you a natural boost by impeding the conversion of testosterone to DHT.11,12

Slow Prostate Growth

DHT is the hormone that signals the prostate to grow.4 Studies show that Saw Palmetto could inhibit production of the enzymes that convert testosterone to DHT, in turn helping to slow prostate growth.2,10

Reduce Hair Loss

High levels of the hormone DHT cause hair follicles to shrink, which translates to less hair growth and a shorter life span for each hair. Research suggests that Saw Palmetto’s DHT-decreasing powers can help increase hair density.13,14

Support Urinary Health

Multiple studies have reported 10,11,15 an improvement in urinary flow rate and other annoying prostate symptoms among participants taking Saw Palmetto extract. The body of research suggests that Saw Palmetto may help slow prostate growth. A smaller prostate means less pressure on the urethra and fewer annoying urinary problems as you age.

Standardized Extract, Not Powder

Grinding up the Saw Palmetto berries into a powder yields very little of the active ingredients. That’s why we use standardized extracts that can be tested for purity and potency. Other products on the market use less effective powder forms because they are cheaper to produce; be sure to check labels carefully!

Why are there “Other ingredients” listed on the Nested Naturals Saw Palmetto label?

We believe that you deserve to know everything that goes into your body. That’s why we include every single ingredient on our label … not just the active ingredients. We are transparent about the “other” ingredients that are necessary to create a working supplement that other labels often don’t bother to mention, such as thickening agents, capsule materials and natural flavoring. These amounts of these ingredients are so tiny that most supplement makers don’t bother listing them.
