Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH)
I find that saw palmetto helps more than 80% of men with BPH who take the full dosage for four to six weeks. Saw palmetto also combines well with the herb pygeum africanum for an effective treatment. To be even more aggressive with treatment, I ask men to take some extra zinc (50 to 100 mg with a few milligrams of Copper) and the supplements calcium d-glucarate plus indole 3 carbinol (for their hormone-metabolism properties), In addition essential fatty acid sources for example flaxseed/flax seed oil, and pumpkinseed/pumpkinseed oil are highly effective for BPH.
On the other hand, you might be able to get a ready-made formulation that includes saw palmetto combined with herbs such as pygeum africanum and nettle root. Another helpful supplement used in some formulation is cernilton, a rye pollen extract, which has also been shown in studies to be affective for BPH along with prostatitis.
