I've been using Pygeum for over 4 years now and have had no problems. Simply put, it works. Prior to using it, I was up all night making trips back and forth to the bathroom. My physician recommended I take Jardin for 3 months. This was not a good idea. I experienced headaches and appetite changes.

Esto mejoró con Serenoa Repens 329 mg solamente, bajando a una o dos. Cambié por Serenoa Repens 160 mg + Pygeum Africanum 50 mg, un comprimido por día, y en 2 días desapareció la micción nocturna totalmente, y también ... Show Full Comment
