Saw palmetto berries:  Saw palmetto berries are known to prevent the side effects caused by urinary tract problems mainly associated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Saw palmetto's health benefits rely on its ability to act as an anti-inflammatory agent. One study found that taking at least 160 mg of saw palmetto per day can improve the prostate symptom scores, along with the urinary flow rate and quality of life. (Reference: Ju, X.B., et al. (2015). [Efficacy and safety of Saw Palmetto Extract Capsules in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia]. Ju, X.B., et al. Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue. 21(12):1098-101. Chinese. PMID: 26817302.)

Plant sterol complex (Beta-sitosterol): Beta-sitosterol has been shown in studies to improve urinary symptoms and flow measures.

Zinc: Zinc is a mineral that plays an essential role in cell growth and DNA repair. At the same time, zinc is mainly found in prostate tissues because it plays a vital role in the development and normal functioning of the prostate. When the prostate is functioning at normal levels, zinc is present in high levels. (Reference: Gómez, Y., Arocha, F., Espinoza, F., Fernández, D., Vásquez, A., Granadillo, V. (2007).
