Saw Palmetto Extract -Choose Form
Scientific Name: Serenoa repens
Saw palmetto is also known by its scientific name, Serenoa repens is a type of fan palm that usually grows together in clumps and it mainly grows along the Gulf Coast of the United States.
Its common names are Scrub Palmetto, Silver Saw Palmetto, American dwarf palm tree, Cabbage palm, Sabal, fan palm, and scrub palm, Sabal Fructus, Fructus Serenoae, Sägepalmenfrüchte, Sägepalme and Old Man’s Best Friend.
It is the only member of the Serenoa genus that have been used for centuries as a tonic, topical cleanser against germs, and to remedy urinary and reproductive disorders in men. European and American settlers used saw palmetto for a wide range of ailments.
In the early 1900s, men used the berries to treat urinary tract problems, and even to increase sperm production and boost libido.
Today, the primary use of saw palmetto is to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. It is also an ingredient in a number of prescription medications commonly prescribed by doctors in Europe.
Health benefits Of Saw Palmetto
Saw palmetto is an outstanding herb for both men and women and is used by natural health practitioners to treat a number of ailments such as testicular inflammation, urinary tract inflammation, coughs and respiratory congestion. It is also used to reinforce the thyroid gland, balance the metabolism, stimulate appetite and aid digestion. This wonderful herb is becoming famous for its uses in hair restoration, prostate health, sexual vigor, breast enhancement and as a nutritive tonic. Some people use saw palmetto for colds and coughs, sore throat, asthma, chronic bronchitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and migraine headache.
Prevents Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is one of the main causes of mortality for men. This form of cancer is mainly dangerous because it is related with prostate enlargement, something that naturally happens as men age.
Saw palmetto extract helps to reduce prostate enlargement by inhibiting dihydrotestosterone, which encourages cellular reproduction in the prostate.
This lowers the chances of developing prostate cancer, eliminating painful urination and the discomfort that accompanies prostate issues.
Saw palmetto is also known to speed healing and reduce bleeding in men undergoing prostate surgery.
Several trials have shown that saw palmetto improves urinary tract and treats symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)
Saw Palmetto is used to treat BPH especially when used in combination with other herbs (especially stinging nettle).
This combination relieves symptoms such as reduced urinary flow, incomplete emptying of the bladder, post urination dripping, and the constant urge to urinate.
It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-androgen properties, reduces the levels of DHT and promotes urination
Saw Palmetto is great for reducing the size of an enlarged prostate, also known as BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia), another common ailment in men 40+.
If your prostate is enlarged, it blocks the flow of urine — you’ll have a weak ‘flow’ when you urinate, feeling like your bladder hasn’t emptied properly.
The most serious (and annoying) effect of this is that you end up having to getting up in the middle of the night multiple times to.
Interrupted sleep means lower quality sleep in general, affecting your metabolism (weight gain), testosterone production, energy and mood the next day, and keeps you stuck with a foggy feeling the next day.
Because of saw palmetto’s hormonal impact on the body, some men have started using saw palmetto to stimulate hair growth as they age.
Studies have shown a negative correlation between saw palmetto use and male-pattern baldness symptoms, so if your hair is beginning to thin out, consider some supplementation to wind back the clock.
Androgenetic alopecia: Male and female hair loss
Hair loss in both men and women is called androgenetic alopecia, and it’s common as everyone ages. It’s caused by the hormone testosterone, and its conversion into a molecule called DHT. This alteration causes hair follicles to shrink, resulting in hair loss. Men have more testosterone than women do, so balding is more common in men.
Men typically experience an M-shaped pattern of thinning hair, known as male pattern baldness. Thinning usually occurs all over the scalp in women and rarely results in complete baldness. Because hair loss is so common, it’s no wonder people turn to herbal remedies. Saw palmetto is one of the most popular that people use to try to slow down hair loss or to regrow hair.
One review of 7 studies found that oral and topical supplements containing saw palmetto improved hair quality by 60%, raised total hair count by 27%, and increased hair density in 83% of people with hair loss.
Increases Muscle Mass
Many bodybuilders and people engaged in serious gym time have turned to saw palmetto as a workout supplement.
Although research into saw palmetto’s impact on muscle mass and development is still ongoing, early reports do show a correlation between the two. It makes sense, given saw palmetto’s impact on testosterone in the body, which is responsible for muscle mass increase. But it should only be taken in moderation.
Saw palmetto extract has long been known as a herbal treatment for impotence. Exact pathway that saw palmetto takes in terms of sexual organs and hormones is still somewhat unclear, but the research has certainly piled up showing that it can boost your sexual performance and increase virility.
Saw Palmetto has been known to boost the immune system, particularly for mild conditions such as colds, coughs, and sore throats.
Headaches and migraine sufferers have also claimed that saw palmetto works as an anti-inflammatory agent and reduces pain and discomfort.-
Urinary organs weaken with age, which is why incontinence is much more common in the elderly population. Research suggests that saw palmetto has strong chemical components that can strengthen urinary organs to prevent incontinence, and also improve the health of the kidneys.
If you are at risk of developing kidney stones or already suffer from them, saw palmetto supplementation can be a great way to prevent future issues or treat current problems.
Saw palmetto has been known to increase sex drive and libido in both women and men.
Although the hormonal impact of saw palmetto mostly affects testosterone pathways, as a natural aphrodisiac, women can also get a bit more energy in their intimate steps with saw palmetto supplementation.
Saw palmetto helps to reverse a condition known as hirsutism (which male-patterned hair growth in women). Hirsutism may be caused by an overabundance of male hormones, especially testosterone. It’s theorized that saw palmetto may block the overproduction of testosterone, thus alleviating unwanted hair.
High Prolactin in women
Saw palmetto has shown great promise in reducing high levels of androgens and prolactin in females with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) use with Spearmint tea, Green Tea, Reishi mushroom, Zinc, Licorice, Vitex . Females with PCOS have elevated levels of male hormones. This causes a specific set of symptoms, including irregular or heavy menstrual periods, excess body and facial hair, and acne.
