More Info…

Saw Palmetto is a small shrubby, creeping palm native to southern regions of North America. The leaves have sharp spiny edges which can cut the clothing or legs of those unfortunate to come in contact with it, hence the common name of Saw Palmetto. The fruit is the part used in medicine. Its actions (anti-inflammatory, endocrine agent, spasmolytic, possibly antiandrogenic) show it to be of benefit for the following:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia, acute and chronic prostatitis; improving gonadal function and hormone output in men and women, impotence, male sterility, female infertility, irritable bladder symptoms and trigonitis, general debility and cachexia. Traditionally used for upper and lower respiratory problems, atrophy of the breast, ovaries and testes as well as B.P.H. It was described as the “old man’s friend”. It was also used for inflamed gonads in the male or female and as an aphrodisiac. It has also been shown to reduce the conversion to testosterone to DHT via 5-alpha-reductase inhibition (which is very beneficial for acne sufferers); reduce serum SHBG levels (very beneficial for women with P.C.O.S.).

In 2004 an updated meta-analysis of 14 randomsed clinical trials and 3 open-label trials involving 4280 patients found a significant improvement in peak flow rate and a reduction in nocturia above placebo, together with a 5-point reduction in the Internaltional Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS).
