Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens/Sabal serrulata) is a palm-like plant with berries that were a staple food and medicine for the Native Americans of South-Eastern United States. Saw palmetto is a remarkable herb for both men and women and is used by natural health practitioners to treat a variety of ailments such as testicular inflammation, urinary tract inflammation, coughs, and respiratory congestion. It is also used to strengthen the thyroid gland, balance the metabolism, stimulate appetite and aid digestion.
Today, the primary use of saw palmetto is to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. MapleLife® Prostate ONE uses a potent blend of saw palmetto, lycopene, pygeum africanum, maca root, and many other beneficial ingredients to relieve urologic symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia and promote prostate health.
