Saw Palmetto Hair Loss - New Research Gives Hope For Preventing Hair Loss


Visitors: 167

For years it has been suspected that saw palmetto can help prevent hair loss. Currently there are several studies being conducted to test the effectiveness of saw palmetto on hair loss. Many people swear that saw palmetto can prevent hair loss and even help men and women grow hair. While the jury is still out there is science behind the theory.

The basic idea is that saw palmetto can prevent hair loss by blocking the production of DHT. DHT is produced by testosterone. Saw palmetto prevents testosterone from turning into DHT. You can apply saw palmetto directly to the scalp or take an oral supplement. Make sure you select a brand of saw palmetto that is of the highest quality. You don’t want to waste your time taking a supplement that is not of high quality just to save a few dollars.

Saw palmetto is used in reducing the size of the prostate and to maintain prostate health but noticeable differences have been observed in reducing hair loss and growing of hair. Native Americans have been using the substance for hundreds of years to help urinary problems. There are some that claim that saw palmetto works better than some commercial products used to prevent hair loss and help grow hair.

Before taking any supplement please consult a doctor. It may be a few years before we the research is conclusive but it seems that saw palmetto may prevent hair loss and possible help re-grow hair.
