Solaray Guaranteed Potency Saw Palmetto Berry Extract softgels contain 85% fatty acids and sterols. Solaray Guaranteed Potency Saw Palmetto contains a special extract of select berries which are wild-crafted and processed without the use of additives or grinding aids of any kind - NO harsh solvents like alcohol or hexane have been used.
The liposterolic (fat-soluble) extract of saw palmetto provides concentrated amounts of free fatty acids and sterols. One study with a saw palmetto extract suggests that it reduces the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) (an active form of testosterone) binding in the part of the prostate surrounding the urethra (the tube carrying urine from the bladder). Test tube studies also suggest that saw palmetto weakly inhibits the action of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to DHT. In test tubes, saw palmetto also inhibits the actions of growth factors and inflammatory substances that may contribute to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Contrary to some opinions, saw palmetto does not have an estrogen-like effect in menís bodies.
