The Native Indians used Saw Palmetto berries for nocturia, enuresis,
impotence, atrophy of the testes, inflammation of the prostate, low libido in
men, infertility, painful periods, and problems with lactation for women. Saw
Palmetto has other traditional uses such as tonic and expectorant for mucous
membranes such as the bronchial tubes.
Saw palmetto is as effective as drugs for BPH, but lacks the side effects. BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate, a walnut-sized gland that surrounds the base of a man's bladder and produces a component of seminal fluid.
After middle-age, the prostate begins to swell in about 50 percent of men. An
enlarged prostate prevents a free flow of urine, leading to frustratingly
frequent urges to urinate, and can mask early signs of prostate cancer. BPH affects up to 4.5 million U.S. men over 60 each year, and most drug-based
treatments are acknowledged to be unsatisfying. Drugs, chiefly Proscar (finasteride),
are successful for no more than half of those who take them, and can cause
dizziness, fatigue and reduced sexual functioning. Surgery also carries risks of
both impotence and incontinence, and new nonsurgical options using radio waves
and microwaves are available in only a few cities, including Atlanta.
