Raw Saw Palmetto oil extract
Cold pressed extract of Saw Palmetto berries obtained with virgin olive oil. Saw Palmetto is traditionally used as a topical treatment to help improve skin and scalp conditions, maintain healthy skin and hair, combat hair loss. It was used by American Indians as hair, scalp and skin care. It is said to revitalize mature skin, to bring olive shine to the skin, to help revive hair follicles, improve hair strength, body and shine, make scalp less sensitive to stress and irritation. More recently Saw Palmetto received recognition in the areas of men's health and women's health both as preventative remedy and as safe and effective treatment to reverse development of certain patological conditions. Scientific research confirm that majority of Saw Palmetto bioactive ingredients are of lipophilic nature, and therefore are extracted into the oil and well assimilated by the skin. These observations suggest that when applied topically, Saw Palmetto may be more bioavailable and therefore more effective treatment for particular body areas and organs.

Nutritional value of Saw Palmetto oil extract
The extract contains full spectrum of lipophilic ingredients as well as volatile and semivolatile ingredients of the berries. At the same time, it is free of insoluble and therefore non-digestible, non-absorbable components of the berries. About 85 - 95 % of the extract are represented by the fatty acids, however not all fatty acids are from Saw Palmetto; part comes from the olive oil. On the basis of accounting for the weight of olive oil and Saw Palmetto berries used for the extraction, as well as obtained extract and residuals, the percentage of the actual Saw Palmetto nutrients in the extract was determined as 35 - 45%. Therefore, when used as a dietary supplement, about 0.4 - 0.5 ml of the oil extract may be considered as equal to usually recommended dosage of 160 mg of powder extract. It should be mentioned, that actual ratio should be more in favor of the oil extract, because the part of powder extracts are represented by not-soluble and, therefore, non-absorbable ingredients.
Saw Palmetto extract is all-natural preparation, it may be used as a skin or scalp treatment as well as a dietary supplement.

We encourage the use of Saw Palmetto oil on the daily basis without consuming large amounts at one time. Although no adverse effects of Saw Palmetto has been reported so far to the best of our knowledge, we believe that consistency and moderation - are two cornerstones for successful application of herbal medicines.
Standardized Saw Palmetto oil extract - Saw Palmetto olive oil extract standardized to beta-sitosterol content of 1 mg/ml.
Beta-sitosterol is believed to be one of the main active ingredients of Saw Palmetto. It has been proven to possess several health beneficial properties, and demonstrate positive effects in a number of clinical trials. Sitosterol is used in Germany for the treatment of benign prostrate hypertrophy (BPH) with general positive response. A regular recommended daily dose taken in pills corresponds to about 40 mg of beta-sitosterol. It has been used earlier in Germany for the treatment of soft-tissue rheumatism with moderate success. Sitosterol was shown to lower the absorption rate of cholesterol and is utilized in some countries for the treatment of mild cases of hypercholesterolemia. Side effects are only reported with consumption of mega high doses, like 10 grams (10,000 mg) and more per day and are mainly related to symptoms of constipation.
The absorption rate of beta-sitosterol is about 5% in humans, accordingly the consumption of 40 mg of beta-sitosterol per day in pills, shall result in assimilation of about 2 mg. Therefore it appears that already 2 mg of beta-sitosterol taken systemically may affect DHT production. The rate of assimilation of beta-sitosterol when applied topically may be expected to be significantly higher, as it occurs for many lipophilic substances. With expected topical application dose in the range of 0.5 - 1 ml per day, Saw Palmetto extract was standardized to 1 mg/ml of beta-sitosterol to optimize expected health beneficial action. The standardized extract as well as other Floraleads oil extracts is all natural product and contains no artificial ingredients.
Suggested use - same as for raw Saw Palmetto extract.
