Palmetto Complex II with Lycopene provides high-quality standardized saw palmetto extract, together with other active nutrients that complement its activity.* In addition to the recommended 320 mg of palmetto extract per serving, this formulation provides 120 mg of betasitosterol, the primary active component of pygeum. Because pygeum extract is prepared with solvents, we use beta-sitosterol from soy instead. Palmetto Complex II also includes lycopene, and a generous portion of pumpkin seed oil from the required species from Eastern Europe.

Studies show that saw palmetto can reduce the binding of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the prostate through the inhibition of nuclear receptors.* It also potentially inhibits the action of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme needed for the conversion of testosterone into DHT.* Clinical trials have demonstrated that saw palmetto berry extract may support prostate health, while also showing no evidence that it interferes with the measurement of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a marker used in monitoring the health of the prostate gland.* There is also evidence that saw palmetto can enhance the reduction of excess estrogen.
