They have been found to contain curative sterols and fatty acids such as lauric acid, oleic acid, myristic acid, and palmitic acid. These basic components that make up the palmetto extract were tested for their propensity to bind for α1-adrenergic, muscarinic and 1,4-DHP receptors. They were also tested for 5α-reductase activity. The results were reported to be positive. Natural Product Updates sites this information - http://www.urinozinc.com/
Recently the outcome from research pertaining to the saw palmetto indicates that it is effective in slowing or in some cases stopping male pattern baldness. This is when there occurs an overall thinning of the hair on the head. Apparently the saw palmetto plant is able to arrest DHT entering into the scalp by stopping the union of DHT or dihydrotestosterone to androgen receptors which are located at the hair follicles. DHT causes 95% of baldness by damaging the hair follicles resulting in thinner hair.
The advantages of blocking DHT are the following:
• preventing dht from attaching to the hair follicle receptors
• decreasing the production of DHT
• hindering the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase that converts testosterone into DHT.
• decreasing substances that produce the enzyme 5 alpha reductase like cholesterol.
The saw palmetto has already been proven to be an effective antiandrogen since it is successful in the treatment of benign prostratic disease. The plant sterols or phytosterols are effective in reducing the size of the enlarged prostate. Native Americans used the saw palmetto extract to treat the urinary tract as well as the genitals against health issues. It apparently can also retard the baldness that both young and older men are prone to contracting when DHT cannot be controlled.
Saw Palmetto extract is an ingredient found in several prostate supplements including URINOZINC® Prostate Formula and URINOZINC® Plus Beta Sitosterol. These supplements can be purchases at local retailers including Walmart and Walgreens, prices begin at $14.97 per bottle.
