Thanks for this question

Yes, there is evidence that saw palmetto is helpful

Many studies support this and it has been used for many years for prostate enlargement

I recommend discussing with your doctor before starting of course

I would use the lipophilic extract 320 mg per day

Hello from JA

 

 

I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine and I can help you with this and any follow up questions. I cover a lot of ground and might give you an answer or ask for information, but use reply to communicate with me for questions or added details.

 

Saw palmetto is not a homeopathic remedy. It is an Herbal remedy.

 

Homeopathic remedies are ultra high dilutions, as I am sure you know, and have nothing to do with a preparation such as saw palmettto.

 

In addition there is no such thing as a single remedy that is "for" a condition. There are several dozen possible remedies for prostate problems, and then several dozen more. If you tell me more detail I can tell you the remedies most widely used.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
