The Health Henefits of Saw Palmetto Extract, Especially for Men  

  Although there are some benefits of saw palmetto for women, the most highly researched and praised health

 benefits affect men. In terms of impotence, saw palmetto extract has long been known as an herbal treatment

 for impotence. The exact pathways that saw palmetto takes in terms of sexual organs and hormones is still 

somewhat unclear, but the research has definitely piled up showing that it can boost your sexual performance 

and increase virility.

   Aphrodisiac: Although this seems similar to the example above, saw palmetto has been known to increase 

sex drive and libido in both women and men. Although the hormonal impact of saw palmetto primarily affects testosterone pathways, as a natural aphrodisiac, women can also get a bit more pep in their intimate steps with saw palmetto supplementation.

   Kidney Concerns: The urinary organs can weaken with age, which is why incontinence is much more 

common in elderly populations. Saw palmetto research has shown that its strong chemical components can 

strengthen those urinary organs to prevent incontinence, and also maximize the health of the kidneys. If you 

are at risk for kidney stones or already suffer from them, saw palmetto supplementation can be a great way to

 prevent future issues or treat current problems.

   Prostate Cancer: One of the leading causes of mortality for men is prostate cancer, just as breast cancer is 

one of the leading causes for women. This form of cancer is particularly dangerous because it is associated 

with prostate enlargement, something that naturally happens as men age. Saw palmetto extract can reduce 

prostate enlargement by inhibiting dihydrotestosterone, which stimulates cellular reproduction in the prostate. 

This lowers the chances of developing prostate cancer and eliminating painful urination and the discomfort 

that accompanies prostate issues. Saw palmetto is also known to speed healing and reduce bleeding for men 

who are undergoing prostate surgery.

   Muscle Mass: One of the more recent developments in the saw palmetto debate is its impact on muscle 

mass. Many bodybuilders and people engaged in serious gym time have turned to saw palmetto as a workout 

supplement. Although research into saw palmetto’s impact on muscle mass and development is still ongoing, 

early reports do show a correlation between the two. It makes sense, given saw palmetto’s impact on 

testosterone in the body, which is responsible for muscle mass increases, but it should only be taken in 


   Hair Growth: Again, due to saw palmetto’s hormonal impact on the body, some men have begun using saw

 palmetto to stimulate hair growth as they age. Studies have shown a negative correlation between saw 

palmetto use and male-pattern baldness symptoms, so if your hair is beginning to thin out, consider some 

supplementation to wind back the clock.
