Pygeum (Pygeum Africanum)

Historically, the bark of this plant has been used primarily for the treatment of urinary tract disorders. It, being included in traditional African medicine, was administered as a tea for urinary problems found exclusively in men. The tea was made from the powdered bark of the Pygeum tree. Like Saw palmetto, Pygeum has been studied extensively for the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Although the two botanicals have a similar mechanism of action, Pygeum is considered most effective at reducing the signs and symptoms of BPH in early diagnosed cases.

Pygeum has been a government-sanctioned medicine in Europe for the treatment of BPH since for over 30 years. Pygeum seems to work on the prostate gland by decreasing inflammation and removing cholesterol deposits from the gland, encouraging complete flow of urine. Other traditional uses of Pygeum include; kidney disorders, malaria, upset stomach, fevers, inflammatory conditions, as an aphrodisiac, and even to treat psychological disturbances (i.e. madness).
