How is saw palmetto used today?
Today people use saw palmetto mostly to treat symptoms of an enlarged prostate. This condition is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Saw palmetto is widely used by medical practitioners in Europe.
Saw palmetto supplement has a range of uses. Most of them related to the effect it is believed to have on testosterone. Lowered testosterone levels cause a variety of conditions, which can be treated by stabilizing the levels of this hormone. Some people think that saw palmetto prevents testosterone from being broken down. When testosterone cannot break down naturally, the levels of the hormone in the body go up.
Some men may experience BPH, where the prostate becomes larger than it should. When this happens, the prostate can put pressure on the urethra, causing discomfort and other symptoms. These include: frequent urination; problems starting or maintaining urination; the need to get up in the night to urinate
Because saw palmetto extract powder is believed to boost testosterone levels, men with BPH may try taking saw palmetto because they think it will shrink the prostate and relieve urinary symptoms.
