Description: Sabal palmetto and pumpkin seed
The Commission E and the World Health Organization recognise saw palmetto as a treatment for urinary disorders associated with mild to moderate benign prostatic hyperplasia (phases I and II).
The dwarf palm Sabal palmetto (Serenoa repens (W. Bartram) Small) as well as squash seeds (Cucurbita pepo L.) are two plants traditionally used for urination problems associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
The combination of the best active ingredients of these plants contributes to retarding the development of prostatic tissue linked to age (particularly in cases of light to moderate hyperplasia of the prostate (phases I and II)) and to soothing urinary difficulties.
The combination of these two plants does not have the undesirable effects on sexual function that synthetic medicines can have.
Sabal palmetto and pumpkin seed: Detailed information
Traditionally used by Seminole Indians, the dwarf palm plant (sabal palmetto) is known for its effectiveness in the micturition problems associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia. It is also a well-known diuretic.
Several clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of the dwarf palm plant in reducing the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy, a problem affecting half of all men over 60.
The action mechanism of the dwarf palm plant (Serenoa repens) remains uncertain: the plant could promote natural death (by apoptosis) of the cells of the prostate and/or inhibit the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, a substance which promotes the development of prostatic tissue (1) (2). It also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Pumpkin seeds are traditionally used as diuretics. Their oil is reputed to inhibit the formation of prostatic tissue and reduce inflammation of the prostate. It relieves the problems with micturition associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia and could thus prevent the formation of kidney stones.
The way in which pumpkin seeds work has not been determined. It is certainly related to the various substances they contain, in particular unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 in particular), zinc and phytosterols.
The alliance of these two plants of recognised effectiveness is a guarantee of addi-tional effectiveness: it has also been established that regular consumption of a product made up of dwarf palm plant and pumpkin seeds (Curbicin) significantly improves urinary symptoms, compared to that of the placebo group, in a study conducted on 53 men (3).
And lastly, these plants do not have any of the undesirable effects on sexual function possibly seen with artificial medicines. They also improve symptoms in the most serious cases of prostatic hyperplasia.
