Product Description

Saw palmetto has been used traditionally as a tonic, antiseptic, expectorant and treatment for enlarged prostate. The beneficial properties of the saw palmetto plant are taken from the berries of the saw palmetto, a small palm tree native to southern California. Saw palmetto has been used traditionally to treat many conditions and ailments and is a popular herbal remedy still used today.

Sexual performance
Saw palmetto has been long revered as a powerful aphrodisiac due to its ability to promote and improve sexual desire and function. It is unclear how saw palmetto works on sexual function, however, it has traditionally been used to address impotence and lack of sexual desire.

Prostate enlargement
In men, saw palmetto is believed to reduce swelling and enlargement of the prostate, a condition more commonly known as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), which may cause pain and difficulty associated with urination and contribute to swelling in the pelvic and rectal areas. Some research suggests that saw palmetto helps to reduce and prevent swelling of the prostate by inhibiting the actions of a specific type of testosterone, preventing the production of excessive prostatic cells that contribute to enlargement and swelling of the prostate. Some experts believe that saw palmetto may be beneficial in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Urinary health
Saw palmetto is believed to improve urinary symptoms in men associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy by reducing and preventing swelling and enlargement that may contribute to urinary difficulties. In both men and women, saw palmetto may help provide relief from urinary incontinence, as well as help to strengthen and tone the urinary muscles, promoting healthy, normal urinary function. Saw palmetto has also been used traditionally to prevent and reduce the occurrence of kidney stones. Saw palmetto is also believed to act as a diuretic, promoting the flow and production of urine which may help to prevent and reduce the occurrence of urinary tract infections.

Baldness and hair loss
Saw palmetto has long been a popular herbal remedy for the treatment of a specific type of baldness and hair loss known as androgenic alopecia. This type of baldness and hair loss can affect both men and women and is believed to be related to the production of a specific type of testosterone being converted into another hormone. Saw palmetto is believed to inhibit the action of this type of testosterone, reducing and preventing related baldness and hair loss.

Breast enlargement
In women, saw palmetto may be helpful to enlarge the breasts. The effectiveness of saw palmetto as a breast enhancer is highly debated, as saw palmetto is known to act as a diuretic and is not estrogenic in nature. Some believe the enlargement of the breasts while using saw palmetto may be due to a reduction in testosterone in the body, which could inhibit the growth and development of the breasts. Although the effectiveness of saw palmetto as a breast enhancer is unclear, early in the 1900s, breast enlargement was one of the more popular reasons behind the use of saw palmetto.

Respiratory health
Saw palmetto is believed to be soothing to the body and promote the healthy functioning of the mucous membranes and glands. For this reason, saw palmetto is believed to assist in reducing excessive mucous and phlegm within the respiratory tract, such as that resulting from asthma, allergies and respiratory illness.

Male fertility
In addition to increasing sexual desire, saw palmetto is also believed to improve erectile function and sperm count in men. Saw palmetto is also believed to help balance hormones, especially in times of stress, which may contribute to higher male fertility.

Female fertility
Saw palmetto is believe to improve fertility in women by balancing hormones. This hormonal regulation is believed to be especially helpful in women suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome, due to the testosterone-reducing effect of saw palmetto. Saw palmetto is also believed to reduce or prevent excessive proliferation uterine and endometrial cells that may contribute to uterine hypertrophy.
