Proven Mechanism of Action of Saw Palmetto Extract

There is wide variability in quality and lack of standardization in the saw palmetto extract market worldwide. Few meet the standards published in the USP monograph.

  • High-quality standardized saw palmetto extracts are effective at inhibiting 5α-reductase 1 & 2
  • - Specific free fatty acids in saw palmetto extract, including oleic, myristic, and lauric acids, inhibit 5α-reductase enzymes.
  • High-quality standardized saw palmetto extracts can support healthy prostate and urinary function and support hair health*
  • - Addresses lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and supports urinary flow in men.
  • - Supports the hair growth cycle*.

USPlus inhibits 5α-reductase enzymes 1 and 2, similar to the leading
herbal medicine product in Europe.
