The saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) berry has been used since ancient times to treat urogenital tract disorders. It supports healthy prostate function and normal urination and is a restorative sexual tonic for both men and women. This fruit also helps to prevent the conversion of testosterone to its metabolite dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and even has a reputation as a libido enhancer.
In a study done in Germany over three years, saw palmetto extract was shown to benefit more than 80% of men with mild to moderate benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Additionally, some women may benefit from saw palmetto berries because it helps to normalize estrogen levels.
