|Saw Palmetto Extract|
Benign enlargement of the prostate is a condition that affects millions of men, including well over 50% of men over age 60. While this condition is usually harmless, for some men it can hinder healthy urinary function and possibly lead to more serious side effects if ignored. Fortunately, there is something that can be done to encourage healthy prostate function. NOW Saw Palmetto delivers 160 mg of premium saw palmetto extract, and is naturally rich in bioflavonoids, sterols and fatty acids - all shown to help support optimal prostate health.
NOW® Saw Palmetto 160mg used to suggest one softgel per day. The Suggested Usage now states I should take 2 softgels per day, but the dose per softgel has not changed. Why the increased amount?
New scientific studies have shown that Saw Palmetto more effectively supports prostate function at a higher dosage of 320mg daily. We certainly do not want our customers to pay more for the same product, but we feel it is important to update our products according to current research findings, hence the change in Suggested Usage. You may still take one softgel daily, but this may not be as effective as the increased dosage indicated by recent research.
