The extraction process further includes the separation of saw palmetto compounds CO2 into a plurality of fractions by passing the continuous flow of CO2 using a plurality of separation. The first separation of plurality has a lower pressure than the extraction pressure and a temperature that does not solidify the CO2 and each subsequent separation has lower pressure than the preceding separation.
