Benefits of Saw Palmetto
It’s great that there are so many natural libido enhancers out there, but what exactly do they do for you? Here’s a quick breakdown of the health and bedroom benefits saw palmetto (an active ingredient in Phalpro) can give you.
Saw palmetto is widely used in Europe, less so in the United States, as a treatment for prostate problems, including BPH symptoms. Saw palmetto may also reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer – in fact, it’s one of the top five natural supplements recommended for just that purpose. Since over half of men develop BPH by age 60, and its symptoms overlap so much with those of prostate cancer, this is something every man should keep an eye on!
The natural chemical makeup of saw palmetto berries interferes with the body’s ability to break down testosterone, which means there’s more of it available for your body to use – which, in turn, boosts your libido and gets you back into the swing of things in the bedroom. Testosterone is broken down into DHT by these natural processes, and DHT is a probable cause of prostate enlargement; taking saw palmetto might help you solve two problems at once!
Slowing Hair Loss
Hair loss is another common problem among aging men – and you guessed it, increased baldness goes hand in hand with decreased testosterone. Some preliminary studies have shown that saw palmetto can help slow and manage your hair loss, keeping more of it on your head where it belongs.
Stronger Urinary Tract
Saw palmetto helps boost kidney health and the overall function of your urinary system (which is also impacted by BPH). It can help improve urine flow, relieve urological symptoms, and even shorten the duration of kidney stones.
Side Effects To Watch For
For the most part, saw palmetto side effects are rare and mild. However, if you experience severe dizziness, unusual heart rate, or other severe symptoms, stop taking it right away. As with any supplement, you should talk to your doctor before adding it to your regimen, especially if you’re already taking blood thinners.
