Hello, I am uncertain which would be more beneficial for me. I have taken Saw Palmetto in the past, and it definitely helps with having to piss so many times during the night. Also, I think it does slow down my loss. But I hear that the active ingredient that helps with prostate health and hairloss is Beta Sitosterol.

I have seen Beta supplements out there, but they are advertised as for helping your cardiovascular system, and nothing about prostate health. So this confuses me a bit. So I wondering if I missing something?

Here's a link for Beta Sitosterol for an example:

My current regimen at the moment is Super Zix 2(6 or so months now) and Niz(same), but I want to take an internal for my prostate. It's large, I have to get up 6 or more times every night to take a wiz and it never feels like I fully emptied my bladder when I do. I started taking standardized saw palmetto, which has helped a bunch, I usually only get up once or twice now, and I don't get that not-quite-empty anymore. But I had heard that just beta sitosterol is even better, so I think I'm going to try it, but I just wanted to see if anyone had any input on here. (I've ghosted this forum for 4 years now)

Also, does anyone recommend any specific vitamin/herb websites for purchase. I've used the Swanson site the most, but I am sure there must be better out there.

Search for Prosta Q. I've had some prostate problems myself. I tried a few of the drugs, with plenty of side effects. My urologist just told me to take this stuff. Seems to be helping.
