Proven Mechanism of Action of Saw Palmetto Extract

There is variable quality within bulk extracts in the supplement market worldwide. Few meet USP standards.

  • High-quality standardized extracts are more effective at inhibiting 5α reductase 1 & 2
    - Several free fatty acids in saw palmetto extract, including Oleic, Myristic, and Lauric acids, inhibit 5α-reductase enzymes.
  • Quality lipid extracts can support healthy prostate and urinary function and support hair health* - Standardized LSESr improve IPSS scores and improve urinary frequency.
    - Standardized extracts support the hair growth cycle and balance the androgenic cycle.

Our data shows that USPlus® is able to inhibit 5α-reductase enzyme 1 and 2, similar to the leading herbal medicine product in Europe, Permixon®.

High-Quality Oil Extract is Key

Only USPlus® meets the profile of a quality, standardized lipidosterolic product.

The Saw Palmetto extract market is flooded by ineffective and poor quality products. Results show that other products are a customized mix of ingredients, and do not deliver a clinical strength extract to support prostate or hair health. Third-party verifications like the US Pharmacopeia are critical in this category for brands and their consumers - and that’s where Valensa’s USPlus® delivers.

Only high-quality saw palmetto oil extract (lipidosterolic extract of Serenoa repens) has demonstrated consistent effectiveness in clinical studies. Most products contain inexpensive crushed berry powder which has no clinical data showing benefits for men.

USPlus®’s purity and potency comes from an eco-friendly, patented, and proprietary extraction process that yields more of what nature offers from every berry.
