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).
