Saw palmetto


Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) is a type ofpalm  that grows in tropical countries.  The berries of the plant are commonly used in supplements to improve prostate health, balance hormone levels, and prevent hair loss in men.  It’s also associated with other benefits, including decreased inflammation and improved urinary function.  Prevents hair loss Hair loss is a common condition that can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, certain medical conditions, hormonal changes, and the use of medications, such as stimulants and blood thinners.  Saw palmetto is often used to balance hormone levels and combat hair loss.

Improves urinary tract function Urinary tract symptoms are common among older men and can include issues like incontinence and difficulty urinating.

May support prostate health The prostate is a small gland located between the bladder and the penis in men, which is responsible for maintaining sperm health.   Some research suggests that saw palmetto could support prostate health and may aid in preventing issues like BPH and prostate cancer.  According to one test-tube study, saw palmetto berry extract was able to decrease the growth of prostate cancer cells.

May decrease inflammation Saw palmetto contains the antioxidants epicatechin and methyl gallate — compounds that prevent damage to cells, decrease inflammation, and protect against chronic disease.

May help regulate testosterone levels Saw palmetto is often used by men looking to boost testosterone levels naturally.  Regulating testosterone levels can impact several aspects of health, including body composition, sex drive, mood, and cognition.   Testosterone levels decline with age, and some research shows that low levels of testosterone could contribute to conditions like heart disease.

Saw palmetto is generally considered safe and has been associated with very few side effects.  Some of the most commonly reported side effects of saw palmetto in research studies include headache, dizziness, nausea, and constipation.

Note that saw palmetto is not recommended for everyone.  For example, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid taking saw palmetto, as it may impact hormone levels.
