I am female and just purchased a saw palmetto supplement for hair loss. However, it says on the bottle that it is only for use by men. Is it really unsafe for women? Lots of sites suggest its use, but I'm fearful of trying it now.
While saw palmetto supplements have traditionally been used by men to improve symptoms of prostate enlargement, many websites now promote it for use in preventing hair loss. In our Saw Palmetto Supplements Review, we explain the evidence on which use for "hair loss" is being promoted and, in the Concerns and Cautions section of the report, we discuss why some women should exercise caution if using saw palmetto.
