Saw Palmetto Can Prevent Hair Loss?

saw palmetto
As you know saw palmetto is great for preventing prostate cancer and helping general prostate health, but what you probably don't know is that its also great for preventing hair loss.

Saw Palmetto, a.k.a Serenoa Repens, can be found in the southern USA. People with prostate problems have been using it for quite some time and they have noticed a side effect, a change in the amount of hair they had or a slowing down of hair loss. This convinced scientists to test the plant and see if it can really help people suffering from hair loss. The study showed that Saw Palmetto prevents hair loss by preventing testosterone from converting to DHT(dihydrotestosterone).

DHT is linked to male pattern baldness. Most medications that are used to prevent male pattern baldness work by preventing the damaging effects of dihydrotestosterone. They are a mix of herbs and plants, and as you see have more than one positive effect. For example taking a hair loss supplement containing Saw Palmetto will actually help your prostate health.

Medications containing Saw Palmetto are lotions, shampoos and supplements. The ones with the most positive effects and the best reputation for stopping hair loss and promoting hair regrowth are the supplements. Such is Provillus, a mix of herbs, nutrients and vitamins that have helped many feel the difference. It not only contains Saw Palmetto, but also a ton of great herbs like Eleuthero Root , Uva-Ursi , Muria Puama and more. The main reasons I recommend it are
  • It has been on the market for as long as 15 years
  • Its FDA approved
  • Works for both men and women
  • Its ingredients are 100% natural and extremely beneficial
  • And comes at a good price, compared to its competition

Something else I would like to advise you is - as soon as you see the smallest signs of hair loss act right away! As the problem progresses it will become harder to cure it, timing is the key.
