Uses and Health Benefits of Saw Palmetto for Men

A few herbs have rightly earned a reputation for supporting men's health and well-being. Saw Palmetto is one of them.* If you’re not familiar with the benefits of Saw Palmetto for men or how this plant can be used in your wellness regimen, keep reading.*

In this article, we’ll introduce you to Saw Palmetto and explain the two major ways that it can support men's health.* Then we’ll share three high-quality Saw Palmetto supplements you can add to your daily routine, depending on your specific needs.

First things first: What is Saw Palmetto?

What Is Saw Palmetto?

Saw Palmetto comes from the fruit of a small palm with fan-shaped leaves native to the southeastern United States. The plant often goes by the name American dwarf palm, though scientifically it is known as Serenoa repens, and it is a member of the Palmaceae/Arecaceae family.

It has a long history of use: In addition to turning to the plant to make baskets, rope, brushes, and the like, the fruit was eaten by Native Americans and used in various traditional herbal remedies.

The first reported use of Saw Palmetto to address prostate health dates to the 1880s. In the early 1900s, Finley Ellingwood, M.D., wrote about the uses of Saw Palmetto in his work titled The American Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy.

Saw Palmetto is still used today to support prostate health.* In fact, it is considered a complete genitourinary tonic for men.* Let’s take a closer look.

Benefits of Saw Palmetto for Men*

Supports Healthy Arousal*

One benefit of taking Saw Palmetto as an herbal supplement is that it can help maintain a healthy erection and support a healthy libido.*

It's thought to do so by promoting healthy circulation and sustaining healthy hormone balance.*

Supports Healthy Prostate Function*

Another major benefit Saw Palmetto provides men? Support for the prostate gland.*

The prostate grows naturally with age, typically without problems. But in some men, the enlarged prostate compresses the urethra, causing difficult and frequent urination.

Saw Palmetto can help maintain prostate function so you can continue to go with ease.*

How to Use Saw Palmetto in Your Wellness Routine*

Since Saw Palmetto for men can support the prostate gland as well as healthy arousal, and is generally known as a complete genitourinary tonic, it can make an excellent addition to your daily wellness routine.*

As an herbal supplement, Saw Palmetto is available in several different forms, including liquid extracts, tablets, capsules, and herbal teas. You can opt for a single-herb Saw Palmetto formula or a blend that provides you with other herbs that also support men's health.*

At Gaia Herbs, we offer three Saw Palmetto formulas for men. All three products deliver Saw Palmetto in Liquid Phyto-CapsⓇ that are convenient and easy to take.
