What Is Saw Palmetto?

Saw palmetto is a palm like plant that flourishes in warmer climates and can reach heights of 10 feet. Its dark purple berries are used as a natural remedy to a variety of ailments.

In ancient times, the Native Americans of the Southeastern United States ate the saw palmetto berries to treat urinary discomfort and congestion. Later, people used saw palmetto for colds, chronic bronchitis, migraine headaches, hair loss, anxiety, and to boost libido.

Today, saw palmetto is primarily used for treating prostate issues. According to many studies, it is considered quite effective in minimizing the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), more commonly known asan enlarged prostate.

Scientists aren’t precisely sure how all of the health effects of saw palmetto and all of the ways it works, but they believe its fatty acids may have an impact on testosterone levels in the body and reduce the amount of an enzyme that stimulates prostate cell growth. 

Saw palmetto is also sometimes used, in combination with other herbs, to treat prostate cancer.
