1.Can beta-sitosterol cause erectile dysfunction or low libido? Are there any other side effects?

6.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.

2018 Saw Palmetto for Prostate? (03/20/2018)
Saw Palmetto for Prostate?

2017 Trouble Reported With Saw Palmetto (05/06/2017)

2015 Men's Health Supplements Don't Help Prostate Cancer (10/21/2015)
Men's Health Supplements Don't Help Prostate Cancer
While there is some evidence that certain supplements may help relieve symptoms of prostate enlargement (BPH), a recent study shows no benefit with regard to prostate cancer treatment. Details are in the Prostate Supplements Review >>
2011 Saw Palmetto May Not Work (10/04/2011)
Saw Palmetto May Not Work
It's used by many men hoping to reduce urinary symptoms caused by benign growth of the prostate, or BPH, but a new, well-designed study suggests that it doesn't work. Some other recent research suggest the same. Even when doubling and tripling the standard dose, the high-quality saw palmetto extract used in the new study failed to provide benefit.

What should you do? You may want to consider a different supplement -- beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol. The evidence remains fairly good for beta-sitosterol. To find out more about saw palmetto, beta-sitosterol, and the supplements we have tested, see the Prostate Supplements ReviewMore >>
