Published studies suggest that a remarkably high percentage of men will endure some form of prostate-induced discomfort over the course of their lifetimes.55,56
Decades of research57,58 substantiate saw palmetto as the gold standard in natural prostate support. Through a novel scientific advance, Life Extension now offers an ultra high-potency formula unlike typical saw palmetto extracts.
The saw palmetto berry (Serenoa repens) is rich in bioactive, high-molecular weight compounds including beta-sitosterol. It has been shown to interfere with activity in the prostate, inhibit alpha-adrenergic receptor activity (to support normal urinary flow), and help regulate inflammatory actions in the prostate gland.15-17
DeepExtract is a patented, ultra-high pressure CO2 technology engineered to recover far greater amounts of bioactive, high-molecular weight fatty acids from the saw palmetto berry during the extraction process. The result is a superior formula containing key ingredients in higher concentrations than many other extracts.20
These naturally occurring substances are left behind by more widely used low-pressure CO2 extraction techniques. DeepExtract ensures the most desirable and complete bioactive extract profile available. The result is a formula that most closely resembles the composition of premium, mature saw palmetto berries.
This saw palmetto extract has been standardized to contain 85% free fatty acids and sterols. It also contains beta-sitosterol, boron, and rosemary leaf extract.
