The premium organic Saw Palmetto berries in this formula supply a dose of fatty acids and sterols similar to the standardized dose used in recent clinical trials. The berries are milled just prior to encapsulation to help preserve freshness. A recent study concluded that the whole berries have additional health benefits which are not seen in the extract.
We have analyzed the organic berries several times and have found the results to be consistently around 14% fatty acids. Therefore, at the suggested dose of 4 capsules a day, this provides the 328 mg of fatty acids & sterols, which is just above the clinical dose used in the studies. Moreover, since the material is not altered to resemble a drug (like many of the saw palmetto products that are standardized to 85%), our product supplies all the other beneficial compounds such as ferulic acid, polysaccharides, flavonoids, resins and essential oils.
