Saw palmetto is a fan palm, a low growing plant with flowers, though it can reach heights of 10 feet in warmer climates. It is also referred to as a dwarf plant, and is native to the Carribean and North America. Primarily found in Florida and Georgia, its berries are the most valued part. Saw palmetto extract is extracted from the berries. When you buy a bottle of saw palmetto extract, this is the source of the extract. The technical name for these fruit berries is Serenoa repens. Serenoa repens has been used in traditional and alternative medicine to treat a number of illnesses and conditions. The leading condition and most documented is saw palmetto’s treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Early research indicated that it moderately improved urinary and flow conditions, but later research has been inconclusive. Native Americans were known to use the fruit as not only a food source but to treat many urinary and reproductive system problems.

Supports Prostate Health

Some countries in Europe currently use saw palmetto as an alternative medicine for BPH. Germany’s regulating authority of herbal medicines recently added saw palmetto to their approved list.

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) berry extract is standardized to contain 85-95% as active fatty acids and sterols, including beta-sitosterol, which support prostate health.*

Saw Palmetto for hair loss... in men and women

Hair loss is linked to the hormone testosterone, as the conversion of this hormone into a molecule called DHT is the main culprit of hair loss. DHT causes hair folliciles to thin over time, eventually eliminating them completely. Researchers have found that the natural components of saw palmetto that block the enyzme work in a similar way to the synthetic ingredients in prescription hair loss medications.

Experts believe saw palmetto acts in a similar way to finasteride by blocking the enyzme called 5-alpha-reductase which is the enyzme required for testosterone to convert into DHT. Some have reported taking saw palmetto stops hair loss and helps to regrow thicker, better hair.
