/PRNewswire/ --
A natural treatment made from Saw Palmetto berries can have a significant
effect in reducing sexual dysfunction in men with prostate problems, a new
clinical trial has found.
A male libido study carried out by Swiss-based herbal specialists A. Vogel is the
first using extracts from Saw Palmetto berries to show improvement not only
on the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) but also the erectile and
ejaculatory problems it often causes.
The treatment, marketed in the UK by A. Vogel's Bioforce arm under the brand
name Prostasan, was given to 82 patients, most of them aged between 50 and
70.
During the eight week-trial in
Switzerland
they took one 320mg capsule of Saw
Palmetto extract daily.
At the end of the trial the 18.8 per cent suffering severe BPH symptoms had
dropped to only 4.3 percent, while overall 66 percent reported enhanced
erectile function and libido.
Practising urologist, Dr Eugen Riedi, who organised the trial, says results clearly
showed Prostasan significantly improved not only BPH but also all areas of
sexual dysfunction.
"That is a critical factor when it is considered one of the side-effects of
frequently prescribed medication is that it may actually worsen sexual function
with consequent loss of libido to a quite marked degree," he adds.
"Though Prostasan equals synthetics for efficacy it has none of their side-
effects, and furthermore is readily available over the counter at UK pharmacies
and health food stores without the need for a prescription."

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy
BPH is one of the most common health problems in men over 50 years of age.
Many men with BPH do not realise their urinary symptoms are due to an
enlarged prostate.
