Saw Palmetto is another highly respected standardised extract derived from the ripe fruit of a palm-like tree. Saw Palmetto has a long-established reputation and has been well researched although results have been conflicting. It is very popular with older men who are experiencing urinary symptoms due to benign enlargement of the prostate gland to support symptoms including urinary frequency, hesitancy, reduced stream and the need for night-time urination.
It is thought to boost testosterone levels by inhibiting the breakdown of naturally produced testosterone in the body. There have been reports that it may slow blood clotting and for this reason, it should be avoided by anyone who is taking medicines with antiplatelet effects (such as aspirin and ibuprofen) and anticoagulants. Due to its hormonal effects, it may reduce the efficacy of the oral contraceptive pill, if taken by women for other reproductive reasons. Side effects can include headaches, dizziness and gastrointestinal effects.
Saw Palmetto is highly regarded amongst its users and has sustained popularity and widespread use worldwide.
