Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto

If you’re experiencing hirsutism, hair thinning, or hair loss, then it’s quite possible you’re metabolizing the testosterone in your body into DHT, a more potent androgen metabolite, through the enzyme 5-alpha reductase enzymatic pathway.

Thinning hair on your head, and hirsutism can be a result of this testosterone metabolism.

Higher than normal insulin levels can promote this more potent androgenic pathway.

While you’re working on a better diet and better stress management, you might try one of our favorite healing plants – saw palmetto.

This amazing palm-shaped plant can block this pathway. Studies have shown that it can block the uptake of DHT and testosterone into tissues by up to 40%.

Saw Palmetto can: 

  • stop hair loss
  • stop dark, coarse hair growth 
  • improve sex drive 
  • promote weight loss 
  • improve the pain response 
  • lower prolactin levels
  • support vaginal integrity

Saw palmetto is in the 5-Element System nutrients, Element #1, as one of the key ingredients to help women find hormone balance. Learn more about the 5-Element System for Hormone Balance here.
