News Release

Vegetarian Saw Palmetto Extract Reformulated for Swanson Health Products' Superior Herbs Line

Swanson Health Products introduces the reformulated Saw Palmetto Extract in vegetarian softgel form, made with certified organic saw palmetto berries. Saw palmetto is a natural source of fatty acids and sterols that has emerged as a leading herb for all-natural prostate health maintenance.

Fargo, ND (Vocus) January 27, 2010—Saw palmetto, a natural source of fatty acids and sterols,  has emerged as the leading herb for all-natural prostate health maintenance. Swanson Health Products introduces their reformulated, vegetarian option for saw palmetto: Swanson Superior Herbs Saw Palmetto Extract, made from PalmettoPure™ Saw Palmetto Extract.

PalmettoPure™ Saw Palmetto Extract is produced by Valensa Intl. and features Valensa’s USPlus® Certified Organic Saw Palmetto Extract. Valensa’s USPlus® Certified Organic Saw Palmetto Extract is produced using Valensa’s proprietary supercritical CO2 extraction technology. The supercritical CO2 extraction delivers more of what nature has to offer: four times the beta carotene, ten times the lutein and 30 times the zeaxanthin of a typical saw palmetto low-pressure extract. Because no solvents are used, the final product is 100% free of impurities and chemical residues.

“I’ve examined a lot of facilities and processes over the years,” said Tom Audette, Swanson Health Products’ Manager for Product Development. “I’ve never been as impressed as I am with Valensa. What they are able to accomplish at low temperatures without solvents—using only high pressure and pure CO2—is simply astonishing.”
