What is Pygeum: Information
Pygeum, or Pygeum africanum, is a type of tree native to Africa that has been found to contain three chemical compounds that help fight prostate enlargement.
Pygeum's Health Benefits
Pygeum is used primarily for prostate support. Pygeum extracts contain compounds which may inhibit the formation of certain prostaglandins and hormones that promote swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland.
Pygeum works gradually – it may take 6 to 9 months to achieve a noticeable improvement. Pygeum is often used along with other prostate-support nutrients such as saw palmetto extract and zinc.
Side effects and Cautions:
May cause slight stomach upset in some individuals.
