The American Journal of Natural Medicine, November, 1994 Saw Palmetto extract and BPH: Results from a multicenter study. Results from a recent open multicenter study corroborate those from numerous double-blind, controlled studies showing that the liposterolic extract of Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) standardized to contain 85% to 95% fatty acids and sterols is an effective treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In fact the results produced in the trial once again demonstrated the Saw palmetto extract's superiority over finseteride (Proscar). While Proscar typically takes up to a year to produce any significant benefit, Saw palmetto extract produces better results in a much shorter period of time. Most patients achieve some relief of symptoms within the first 30 days of treatment with the Saw palmetto extract. A total of 305 patients fulfilled inclusion criteria. Each patient was given a dosage of 160 mg twice daily. The subjective evaluations of treatment made by patients after 45 and 90 days of treatment were quite favorable. After 45 days, 83% of patients estimated the drug was effective. After 90 days, the percentage increased to 88%. Similarly, global evaluations made by physicians after 45 and 90 days demonstrated 81% and 88% effectiveness respectively. There were no serious adverse reactions reported. The objected evaluations demonstrated remarkable improvements in all measurements. Maximum urinary flow (ml/s) increased from 9.78 to 12.19; mean urinary flow rate (ml/s) increased from 5.83 to 7.41; prostatic volume (mm3) decreased from 40,348 to 36,246; and the international prostate symptom score decreased from 19 to 12.4. While these improvements are impressive, perhaps the most impressive changes occurred in the quality of life scores.
University Medical Research Male Sexual Disorders Some sexual dysfunction in men can be traced directly to the prostate gland. The gradual enlargement of the prostate is largely a function of the aging process. (see the mentioned research above re: Saw Palmetto and the prostate) Besides the more familiar urinary tract disorders, a swollen prostrate needs specific medication and care to ensure it and your sex life. Aging effects many parts of the body and the erectile tissue of the penis is no exception. As men get older these tissues tent to loose their strength. The result means less firm erections or none at all. That is hardly new information. The centuries old pursuit for the perfect aphrodisiac lends plenty of testimony. The difference today is that science is beginning to find some answers. Hormones, it should come as no surprise, play a pivotal role. The testosterone level in men shifts at age 18, and again at age 45. The body simply doesn't make as much of it as in previous years. The decrease in testosterone levels makes men tire more easily, reduces muscle tone, and in extreme cases can diminish the sex drive as well as the ability to have an erection.
