Pygeum Africanum Extract?
Pygeum Africanum is a natural herbal supplement. Pygeum Africanum Bark Extract comes from the African cherry, which is a cherry tree native to Africa that has been used for centuries for its purported health benefits. The Pygeum tree is a small, evergreen tree or large shrub in the family Burseraceae. The bark of the tree contains high levels of phytosterols and fatty acids.
Pygeum Africanum Extract Benefits:
Pygeum africanum extract may help support the prostate by reducing inflammation and supporting healthy cell growth. Pygeum has been used to improve symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and to improve sexual function. Pygeum africanum contains triterpenes, ferulic acid, and phytosterols. Ferulic acid lowers prostatic cholesterol levels and phytosterols block prostaglandin synthesis, leading to reduced pain and inflammation. Triterpenes also block enzymes responsible for the destruction of connective tissues, leading to possible improvement in symptoms of an enlarged prostate. It is also used for fever, malaria, kidney disease, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these other uses.
