Is there any scientific basis for saw palmetto extract to protect men’s prostate health?

There is some scientific backing for saw palmetto extract's role in protecting men's prostate health. Here are some relevant studies and findings:

1. Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects: Saw palmetto extract is rich in a variety of active ingredients, such as plant sterols, flavonoids and sterols, etc. These ingredients have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Inflammation and oxidative stress play important roles in the development of prostate disease, so the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of saw palmetto extract may be beneficial to prostate health.

2. Inhibit prostate hyperplasia: Saw palmetto extract powder is believed to inhibit prostate cell hyperplasia. Some studies suggest that it may reduce prostate size by regulating hormone levels and signaling pathways, thereby alleviating symptoms associated with BPH.

3. Improve urination problems: Prostatic hyperplasia and inflammation often lead to problems such as difficulty urinating, frequent urination, and urgency. Saw palmetto extract is thought to relax prostate smooth muscle, improve urinary function, and reduce urinary disturbances.

It’s important to note that while there are some scientific studies supporting the benefits of saw palmetto extract for prostate health, the results of these studies are inconsistent and the studies were small. Additionally, the effects of saw palmetto extract may vary based on individual differences.
