Herb of the Week (Saw Palmetto)

palmettoSaw Palmetto has been used to treat the symptoms of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH), which is an enlargement of the prostate gland (not due to cancer).  It has also been used to relieve difficult urination that may be associated with BPH and to relieve the symptoms of an irritable bladder. Saw Palmetto’s active ingredient is found in the American Dwarf Palm tree. It appears to have benefits similar to that of medications like finasteride but is better tolerated and less expensive.
