Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) extract, a popular dietary supplement ingredient (and botanical drug in Europe), has been consumed for centuries by people and wildlife alike. Used widely for lower urinary tract and prostate support, and other indications, legitimate saw palmetto extract comes only from ripened berries that grow wild on Florida land, and is harvested annually each fall.
Still, adulteration, un-ripened green berry powder, and extracts using inferior techniques, have unsubstantiated efficacy, mislead consumers and threaten sustainability.
Valensa has undertaken several initiatives to ensure purity, efficacy and sustainability, coupled with B2B, and B2C education efforts so that humans and wildlife can continue to benefit from the Florida staple. Valensa has an ongoing outreach to growers, educators, manufacturers and state officials alike. Valensa’s USPlus® saw palmetto extract has been endorsed by the Florida Department of Agriculture, and shares the same status as Florida citrus crop.
