What is saw palmetto?
Saw palmetto, also known as Seronoa repens or Sabal serrulata, is a low growing plant that looks like a small palm tree and is native to the Southeastern United States, specifically concentrated in Florida and a few surrounding regions. The berries are the most used part of the plant, and are dried cut and powdered and have been used as herbal remedies for thousands of years for their many health purposes, in particular men’s health issues.
Saw palmetto contains a number of active ingredients, fatty acids, flavonoids and steroids, including several derivatives of beta-sitosterol and other plant sterols. Saw palmetto also contains water-soluble polysaccharides, or carbohydrates like glycogen and starch.
What can Saw palmetto be used for?
Saw palmetto prevents the production of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which changes the male hormone testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, a strong androgen hormone. While this hormone plays an important role in male development, it also contributes to many of the problems associated with middle aged and older men. Therefore it is used to treat a variety of men’s health issues, as well as other medical conditions owing to its many benefits.
