First used in the treatment of BPH late in the nineteenth century, Saw palmetto has been the subject numerous laboratory and clinical studies. These experiments demonstrated Saw palmetto's anti-oestrogenic and anti-androgenic (-testosterone) effects and confirmed that the extract affects many hormonally dependent pathways for prostate growth. These are considered significant interventions in the treatment of BPH. A mild diuretic, antiinflammatory and urinary antiseptic, Saw palmetto reduces inflammation and the tendency to infection in the genitourinary tract.
