Study: Saw Palmetto Safe, Not Effective, In Men With Urinary Problems
Posted on October 24, 2012

Dr. Whang comments:
Many people with an enlarged prostate take Saw Palmetto (rather than FDA approved medications like Proscar or Avodart) thinking that because it is a “natural” supplement, it is better.  This study shows that it is no better than a Placebo (sugar pill).

Study: Saw Palmetto Safe, Not Effective, In Men With Urinary Problems.

Reuters (10/19, Norton) reports that a recent study appearing in the Journal of Urology concludes that the popular supplement saw palmetto is safe at the studied doses but not more effective than a placebo.
