Published April, 2016 in Research and Reports in Urology, Euromed's Prosterol® is proven to be as bioactive as finasteride, a standard prescription drug for prostate health

Presto, PA May, 2016
This published study delivers really good health news for all those who take the popular herbal supplement, Saw Palmetto. With the current increase in scrutiny from consumers, the media, and those in the natural health industry, now - more than ever before - it is critical for consumers and manufacturers alike to use only extracts that have been scientifically proven to work via scientific research and published studies.

Euromed's branded CO2 supercritical saw palmetto extract, sold under the registered name of Prosterol®, has been the subject of an important recent study. The study, which was just published on April 21st, 2016 by DovePress, Research and Reports in Urology, is a mechanism of action study of Prosterol® versus an original prescription drug standard for treating enlarged prostate in men: a drug called finasteride.

The study is entitled "Determination of the potency of a novel saw palmetto supercritical CO2 extract (SPSE) for 5α-reductase isoform II inhibition using a cell-free in vitro test system." In this study, Euromed's extract, Prosterol®, was found to work in the same way and just as well as finasteride,1 and just as well as another well known saw palmetto extract that is made with the harsh solvent, hexane.2,3,4,5

This offers numerous benefits: No Doctor's prescription is necessary to obtain a proven bioactive prostate health dietary supplement; it spares the expense of the medical practitioner's fees; it spares the high costs of prescription drugs; and, most importantly for health, it eliminates exposure to drug-related side effects.
