Saw palmetto is an herb that has been shown in clinical studies to have an important role in maintaining a healthy prostate. Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens, sometimes referred to as sabal in Europe) grows naturally in the southeast United States, including Georgia, Mississippi, and particularly Florida. Saw palmetto is not the only herb that has an influence on the prostate gland. Several other herbs and plant compounds that are potentially useful in maintaining a healthy prostate gland including pygeum, stinging nettle, isoflavones such as genisteind daidzein, rye pollen, phytosterols such as beta sitosterol, and carotenoids such as lycopene.
It appears that urinary symptoms resulting from mild-to-moderate prostate enlargement respond more readily to saw palmetto than symptoms due to severe enlargement. It often takes several weeks or months for the effects of saw palmetto and other herbs to be fully appreciated. Saw palmetto and herbs have fewer side effects than drugs used for prostate enlargement but they are not as potent.
