Saw Palmetto 

(Serenoa repens)

Description...

An extract made from the berries of this shrub is used to treat and strengthen the male reproductive system. It is particularly beneficial for enlargement of the prostate gland. This common disorder is indicated by difficulties with urination and can lead to bladder infections and kidney problems. The condition is thought to be caused by an accumulation of a testosterone derivative called Dihydrotestosterone, which this herb apparently blocks the production of.

The herb is also used as an expectorant, diuretic, antiseptic, sedative, and digestive aid.

How It May Benefit You...

  • benign enlargement of the prostate gland

  • nasal congestion

  • asthma and bronchitis

  • coughs due to colds

  • sore throats

  • sinus ailments.

Caution...

Always continue your medical treatment. You should always be examined and diagnosed by a conventional doctor as the symptoms of prostate enlargement are similar to prostate cancer.

WARNING:    Herbs should only be used under the supervision of an experienced herbalist or naturopath experienced in herbs.

Availability...

Available as fresh or dried berries and in powder or capsule form.
