Saw palmetto is a very popular herb with men over 40. It is often used to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and it’s symptoms, like painful urination and the need to urinate frequently. Another popular use of this herb is to treat male pattern baldness by reducing the body’s levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Too much DHT is believed to be what causes hair loss.
Do not take Saw palmetto if you take any blood thinning medication or if you have hemophilia, ulcers, or if you are planning any type of surgery. Taking this herb may increase the risk of bleeding.
