A member of the palm family, saw palmetto is found in coastal regions, like Texas and Florida. The fruit and seeds of the saw palmetto plant have been used for years to regulate hormonal imbalances, and support and tone the glandular tissues of both men and women. Saw palmetto also strengthens the thyroid, which controls overall gland function.
An herb used to tone and strengthen male and female reproductive systems, saw palmetto relieves testicular inflammation, inhibits the hormone responsible for prostate enlargement, and reduces breast tenderness related to breast feeding and menstruation.
Saw palmetto’s antiseptic and astringent properties help to ease inflamed and irritated tissues of the urinary tract. Expelling toxins and irritants by stimulating urine flow, saw palmetto may help reduce the risk of urinary tract infections.
As an expectorant, saw palmetto alleviates coughs and congestion brought on by asthma, bronchitis and colds. Saw palmetto may also be used to balance the metabolism, aid digestion and stimulate the appetite to increase weight gain.

How Does it Work?
Saw palmetto contains a compound used by the body to manufacture cortisone. Cortisone is an adrenal hormone that helps regulate the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, sodium, potassium and proteins. It is used primarily to support glandular tissues (especially the prostate gland) and to maintain optimal balance in hormone levels. Scientific research validates its use for supporting prostate health. It also contains polysaccharides that may have immuneboosting properties.
A clinical study suggested taking 320 mg of standardized saw palmetto concentrate daily to maintain men’s hormonal balance.
