Saw palmetto plays a defining role in this powerful combination of five herbs with proven relevance for the male genitourinary tract. These carefully chosen ingredients balance and complement one another with effectiveness, each of them performing a critical healing function in support of the prostate.

ECHINACEA ANGUSTIFOLIA: Probably the most popular and most widely known of herbal remedies, echinacea is a drought-tolerant perennial plant that can grow up to four feet in height. With immunological properties, it is native to the United States and a member of the daisy family. Its name comes from the Greek that means "hedgehog"--a reference to its spiky central disk. The medicinal compounds in the purpurea species known as alkamides are more bioavailable when in the presence of those from the angustifolia species. This is the rationale behind our EchinAce formula.
