What is Saw Palmetto?

Saw Palmetto, a plant native to the eastern portion of the United States, is a small palm tree which can be used for medicinal purposes. When the plant’s fruit, brown-black berries, becomes ripe, the fatty acids and phytosterolscan assist in curing many health issues.  Founded by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Saw Palmetto can be absorbed in several ways.

Saw Palmetto and Hair Loss

Saw Palmetto can be used as a natural treatment for hair loss by blocking the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT).  Dihydrotestosteroneis a hormone accountable for hair loss, as well as other other health problems. DHT is converted from testosterone with the help of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase.  Saw Palmetto however, has been shown to stop hair loss because of its ability to block the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, preventing the creation of dihydrotestosterone which ultimately reduces the chance of hair loss.

Side Effects of Saw Palmetto

With the benefits of this natural component, comes some side effects.  However, according to Medline Plus, the side effects that go along with ingesting Saw Palmetto are usually mild. Topically, Saw Palmetto is better for you and involves less side effects.  When taken orally, there are more possible risks that needed to be monitored while using this ingredient.  These are the main side effects that should be looked out for:

  • Nausea or other related stomach issues
  • Digestive problems and/or diarrhea
  • Sleep issues
  • Pain in the muscles
  • Depression or other mood altering issues
  • Bad breath

If you have any of these effects after ingestion, you should stop use and seek medical attention immediately.

Along with the many beneficial components, the Biotin Conditioner targets multiple hair types and both genders alike.
