  • Saw Palmetto is most known for its benefits on prostate health. Saw Palmetto extract appears to inhibit the production of a specific enzyme that triggers prostate inflammation. Through this, natural health practitioners believes that Saw Palmetto may be an effective herbal remedy for the prevention of prostate disorders affecting older men.
  • Saw Palmetto extract can possibly optimise urinary health and functions in men with BPH. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is a men’s health disorder characterised by swelling of the prostate gland that obstructs the flow of urine in the urethra. The obstruction causes the urinary symptoms of BPH including painful urination, dribbling of urine, increased urinary frequency, reduced urine flow, and frequent urination at night. In addition to these discomforts, BPH can also lead to kidney health problems and recurring urinary tract infections.
  • Saw Palmetto benefits healthy testosterone levels. Having enough of the hormone testosterone in the body helps with weight control, libido, and stamina. Higher levels of testosterone generate a happier mood, better sexual performance, and formation of more muscle mass.
  • Saw Palmetto may offer protection against hair loss. It works by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which is one of the leading causes of androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness. Saw palmetto helps make sure that there is more available testosterone to support hair growth and reduce hair loss.

Scientifically known as Serenoa repens, this fruit bearing herb grows in the south eastern region of North America. For centuries, it has been used by Native Americans as herbal remedy for men’s health problems affecting both the reproductive and urinary system. They also used it as topical cleanser, tonic, and antiseptic. Clinical studies on Saw Palmetto showed that it works by blocking the production of the alpha-5 reductase enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for the conversion of testosterone to its potent androgen derivative called dihydrotestosterone. The process of converting testosterone occurs in the hair follicles, adrenal glands, testes, and prostate. It is also in these body parts that middle-aged to older men suffer symptoms including hair loss, prostate enlargement, and loss of libido. Through interfering with this process, Saw Palmetto may be able to help men maintain healthy prostate functions.
