Unless you already have prostate cancer, do not take saw palmetto because it may cause cellular damage and death in healthy prostate cells.
Saw palmetto is good stuff … if you have prostate cancer!
More than 20 controlled double-blind studies have demonstrated that saw palmetto berry extract (containing 85-95% fatty acids and sterols) is effective in relieving the major symptoms of BPH, including increased night-time urinary frequency, the most bothersome complaint.
For years nobody knew exactly how saw palmetto worked, but we now know that it shrinks the prostate gland by killing prostate cells-both malignant and healthy cells. Surprisingly, while saw palmetto is selectively toxic to prostate cells and prostate cancer cells, it has not been researched as a treatment for prostate cancer. The big question is, “Should saw palmetto be used as a preventative supplement if it actually works by poisoning the prostate gland?”
