Saw Palmetto belongs to the palm family and grows in Texas and the Florida coast. It was once a staple of the Native American diet. The Native Americans ground the seeds before eating them and even believed that the fruit of the saw palmetto had medicinal benefits. In colonial times, the branches of this plant were turned into brooms. Medicinally, the most common use of saw palmetto is as a support for the prostate.
This herb balances male hormones and supports the glandular system. It can be used for issues related to female menstruation but most of the time herbalists recommend saw palmetto to men. The active ingredient in saw palmetto that has been found by scientific research to benefit the prostate is called betasitosterols. Betasitosterols are fatty acids that make this herb so useful. Each Natures Sunshine saw palmetto capsule contains 550 mg of the finest saw palmetto.
