Flomentum is a pure, standardized lipidosterolic extract of Serenoa repens (LSESr), also known as saw palmetto berry oil extract. Each softgel contains 320 mg of saw palmetto extract, the clinical strength and quality shown to support urinary function and prostate health in clinical studies.
Frequently Asked Questions
Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) is a small shrub palm unique to the Southeast US. Saw palmetto extract (also known as lipidosterolic extract of Serenoa repens or LSESr) is the oil from mature saw palmetto berries. By comparison, the vast majority of products sold in the US contain ground saw palmetto berry powder. Only high-quality saw palmetto extracts have been shown to support urinary function and prostate health in clinical studies.
The MOA for saw palmetto extract has been widely published. High-quality extracts, like that found in Flomentum, have bioactive fatty acids that are preferentially taken up by the prostate, where they have been shown to inhibit 5-alpha reductase and impact the inflammatory cascade. *1-4
Flomentum has been shown to have a comparable lipid profile to the leading European saw palmetto lipidosterolic extract available by prescription, which has been shown to be effective in clinical studies.
Studies have shown:
1. A clinically meaningful change in IPSS, averaging -5.73 improvement *5
2. Overall improvement of -1.56 voids per night *5
3. Significant delay in LUTS progression vs. watchful waiting *6
Flomentum can benefit men with mild-to-moderate urinary symptoms who are pursuing a path of watchful waiting.
Every man responds differently. Some men experience benefits in weeks. However, results are typically experienced within 90 days of daily use.
Flomentum is made in the USA. The saw palmetto berry oil extract in Flomentum is produced in an FDA registered facility via a patented, ultrahigh-pressure supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) process. This is a clean, renewable, green technology that yields a high-quality extract comparable to those recognized as safe and effective in the European Union herbal monograph on Serenoa repens (saw palmetto).
Most saw palmetto products in the USA are made from ground dried saw palmetto berry powder, and not extracted lipids from ripe berries. Only 320 mg of pure, high-quality saw palmetto oil extract has been shown to benefit health in clinical studies.

High-quality, standardized saw palmetto extracts have no known drug interactions. *7 However, a few cases of suspected interactions with warfarin have been reported in the literature, like any other fatty acid or omega-3 fish oil. *8
High-quality, standardized saw palmetto extracts have shown little to no effect on the secretion of PSA and do not impact PSA testing. *6-15
Flomentum has proven comparability to leading herbal medicine in Europe, which has been clinically shown to have sexual side effects no different than a placebo. *5, *16
