The safest, most effective therapies for optimal health!
by Ellen Landauer
Saw Palmetto for women is not recommended. Deep research indicates that it interferes with some much-needed
body functions that can enhance our lives especially as we grow older!
NOTE: When you search on Saw Palmetto for women, you will find the vast majority of articles in favor of it. Like many other subjects, this one is rife with propaganda!
There are a host of compounds in the fruit of this plant which are CLAIMED to boost female hormonal health. They include:
Phytosterols: Beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol are the main phytosterols.
Fatty acids: Lauric acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid and myristic acid are the main ones.
Saw Palmetto for women - the most common benefit attributed to Saw Palmetto is the inhibition of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase (which converts Testosterone - which doesn't do much of anything, to its ACTIVE form - Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
This is a VERY bad idea!
Many women, particularly during and after menopause, suffer a lack of Testosterone and DHT.
Why would you want to block 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme that transforms Testosterone to DHT?
DHT gives you:
- Healthy libido and sexual response
- Heart and circulatory health
- Muscle strength
- Beautiful healthy skin and strong bones
- Cognitive prowess
Why would you throw all that away???
Symptoms of low DHT include:
- Low libido
- Poor sexual response
- Low energy
- Muscle weakness
- Cognitive decline
- Heart and circulatory disorders
- Lack of endurance
- Loss of zest for life, optimism, confidence
Is the above list what you want? Then take Saw Palmetto!
Since 5-alpha-reductase converts Testosterone into its ACTIVE form, you WANT that enzyme!
DHT production is CLAIMED to result in hair loss, low libido, poor sexual response and acne. By inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase, it is said that sufficient Testosterone can benefit female as well as male vitality and sexual health.

Below, some research links:
quote: "Higher blood levels of sitosterol may be associated with increased risk for coronary events"
quote: The antifertility effect of beta-sitosterol was pronounced only at the high dose level, but there was a significant decrease in testicular weight and sperm concentrations after long-term treatment with the low dose of beta-sitosterol.

Summary: Plant sterols have been touted as an effective way to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. However, a research study has uncovered that these compounds do have their own risks, as they can accumulate in heart valves and lead to stenosis.
Saw Palmetto for women is said to have a long history of use by indigenous peoples.
There has been little research on Saw Palmetto for women. After some very deep searching, I have concluded there are MUCH better compounds for womens' health.
Saw Palmetto for women DEACTIVATES the most BENEFICIAL form of Testosterone - Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Please see my article HERE for in-depth explanation.
What does DHT do for women? It is as important for women as it is for men!
