Vitacost Saw Palmetto Pygeum & Plant Sterols -- 120 Vegetarian Capsules
You have to take 4 capsules
My husband did not like having to take 4 capsules to achieve the recommended dosage. We will go with a product that requires less capsules next time. Quality of product was fine.

Works, but not as good as I had hoped.
I had previously used the NOW brand Saw Palmetto and Pygeum extract that had the addition of Pumpkin Seed Oil in a softgel form.
In looking to save money I opted to go with the Vitacost brand, even though it lacked the Pumpkin Seed Oil. 2 capsules of the Vitacost Brand are equal to 2 softgels of the NOW Brand in terms of Pygeum (50mg) and Saw Palmetto (160mg) so I didn't expect much of a difference.
I have to say that I notice myself having to use the bathroom more frequently and I'm having to get up and go to the bathroom at night again now, but there's no sign of "the dribbles."
That being said, it seems that this product has some effect, but not to the extent I was hoping. I guess the addition of the Pumpkin Seed Oil in the NOW brand was the little thing that made it work better for me. While I could buy pumpkin seed oil separately (more $$$ but will have to this time around I suppose), I do like the convenience of having everything in one pill.
If Vitacost could make a combo pill of all 3 things in a softgel, I'd definitely give it a shot. But for now, after this bottle is done, I'm going back to the NOW brand.

Needed some help to relieve frequent urination and the need to go at bedtime. It is definitely working and saw good results after the first three weeks of taking the recommended dosage.
I am 66 years old and physically healthy and active. Just cannot overcome the inevitable prostate growing and causing urinary problems that all men experience after age 60.
The effectiveness and the low cost is well worth the continued use for the future. Especially the two for one deal that I was given the last time I ordered.

Not such a bargain
I was disappointed to learn that the recommended dosage for this product was 4 capsules daily. I am used to my usual brand which calls for 2 per day.

One of their Best Products
I have been using this product for about 6 month, and it has been nothing shy of excellent. Great product at a good price. I will continue to buy as long as they sell it.
