The lipid fraction of the ripe saw palmetto berry contains volatile oils and fatty acids,which are active in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms. Extracts of saw palmetto concentrate or standardize the liposterolic fractions of the berry.Saw palmetto has antiandrogenic,antiproliferative,and anti-inflammatory properties that seem to be responsible for improving symptoms of BPH.Inflammatory mediators appear to contribute to the etiology of BPH.In men with BPH,a liposterolic extract of saw palmetto berry seems to lower tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and interleukin (IL)-1beta, which are markers of inflammation in prostate tissue.Saw palmetto does not seem to affect overall prostate size,but shrinks the inner prostatic epithelium. Saw palmetto, which appears to exert prostate-specific activity,might slow prostate cell proliferation by inhibiting fibroblast growth factor and epidermal growth factor and stimulating apoptosis.Laboratory evidence suggests that saw palmetto inhibits lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase (COX),which are involved in inflammation.Increased COX-2 expression is also associated with an increased incidence of prostate cancer.
