this herbal remedy may treat an enlarged prostate. It also has been used to
treat hair loss, bladder infections, prostate cancer, and decreased sexual
- Research on the effectiveness of saw palmetto in treating hair loss is
promising. An extract of saw palmetto berries may block 5-alpha-reductase, an
enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. DHT is the molecule responsible for
hair loss, and also is involved in the enlargement of the prostate.

Saw palmetto extracts contains various benefits for women,
most of which have to do with hormonal balancing. It has been stated that taking
the herb can enhance breast size (in women) and may also be used to regulate periods,

properties also make it helpful for women with thinning hair. Whether in
supplement or serum form, saw palmetto doesn’t actually cause hair to
grow, but can impact the chemicals and signals in the body that are either
shutting down or increasing production at the hair follicles. Because of this,
women who suffer from thinning hair may see added thickness and density during
a consistent period of using the herb.
Other common benefits of Saw Palmetto for women include:
