How It Works:
Saw palmetto is a small creeping palm native to the southeast United States where it was an important food source for Native Americans. It has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine and was once called the “plant catheter” due to its effect on the urinary system. Today, it is best known for its ability to help shrink an enlarged prostate gland in men and as a mild diuretic.
