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 control inflammatory actions in the prostate gland.11-13
DeepExtract is a patented, state-of-the-art, ultra-high pressure CO2 extraction technology that ensures the most complete bioactive extract profile available that most closely reflects the composition of premium, mature saw palmetto berries. The result is a superior formula containing key ingredients in higher concentrations than many other extracts.16
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.
Life Extension Saw Palmetto/Nettle Root Formula with Beta-Sitosterol combines the USPlus® saw palmetto CO2 DeepExtract with a nettle root extract (Urtica dioica), boron, and rosemary to support a healthy prostate.8-13,44,45,59-68
Testosterone converts to estrogen at higher rates as men age. Prostate cells are sensitive to estrogen’s growth stimulatory effects. Nettle root helps support prostate cells against the excess estrogen levels.8
This formula contains saw palmetto extract standardized to contain 136 milligrams total fatty acids and 45 milligrams of beta-sitosterol from pine per one softgel.
