Overview

Rye grass is a plant. Pollen from rye grass is used to make medicine. A product made from rye grass pollen extract (Cernilton) is a registered pharmaceutical product in Western Europe, Japan, Korea, and Argentina.

Rye grass pollen extract is commonly used by mouth for prostate conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate pain, and ongoing swelling of the prostate.

How does it work ?

Chemicals found in rye grass pollen decrease swelling (inflammation) by interfering with certain chemicals. These chemicals might also slow down the growth of prostate cancer cells. Rye grass fiber might promote the growth and activity of healthy bacteria in the gut. This helps to promote regularity.
