What is Pygeum?

Extracted from the bark of the African plum tree, pygeum has long been considered a natural remedy for urinary disorders and bladder related health issues. Today, it is primarily found in supplements promoting overall prostate health.

Studies show that pygeum africanum helps relieve the symptoms associated to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate. Pygeum has been proven to reduce urinary difficulty and frequency.

Pygeum Health Benefits

Research has shown that patients on pygeum enjoyed a significant drop in their nightly visits to the restroom. However, pygeum does not appear to reverse the process of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Although tests conducted on animals suggest pygeum may cut the risk of prostate cancer, more research is needed to prove its effectiveness in prostate cancer prevention.

Other pygeum health benefits include treatment for kidney disease, stomach disorders, inflammation, male baldness, and erectile dysfunction.
