Enlarged Prostate & Saw Palmetto

A male’s body contains a hormone called DHT, that causes the prostate to swell. While some enlarged prostates are not a problem, others can cause complications with organs and body parts in the region. With a swollen prostate, men can experience the following symptoms: frequent urination, painful urination, or inability to urinate. Some men experience symptons where they feel they are not able to urinated completely, or completely empty their bladder; leading to discomfort.
