Saw Palmetto is possible one of the best supplements for male health. Its many abilities include: Treating Prostate Disorders, Improving Urinary Tract, Raising Libido, maintaining healthy levels of testosterone whilst reducing conversion to DHT.
A hugely studied supplement, there is sufficient evidence to suggest that saw palmetto even helps many athletes reach peak performance as it maintains healthy testosterone levels.
Saw Palmetto inhibits testosterone from converting into DHT. Male pattern baldness, also known by its clinical name androgenetic alopecia is caused by the hair follicle’s sensitivity to it.
The follicles reduce in size, causing thinner hair and eventually disappear altogether, resulting in baldness. Simultaneously, excess DHT restricts blood flow to the capillaries, which provide hair with the tools for growth, that’s why most modern hair loss products are all about ‘increasing blood flow’ and ‘ energizing the scalp’, I’m sure you are familiar with these expressions .
It helps treat prostate disorders because it helps prevent any excess DHT from pooling up in the prostates. Too much DHT collects in the prostates and this pooling is the main cause of problems within the Urinary Tract and even prostate cancer.
Saw palmetto usually comes in a powdered capsule form or liquid, some people prefer the liquid as its easier to swallow of course, but it can be applied topically straight to the scalp that way to, and some people feel this is better at locally preventing DHT production.
