1.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.
2.Are there supplements that can reduce prostate size?
3.I have been having dizziness for the past few months and am wondering if it could be a side effect of supplements I take. Which supplements cause dizziness?
4.Can beta-sitosterol cause erectile dysfunction or low libido? Are there any other side effects?
5.I use beta-sitosterol for my prostate. Should it be taken with or without food?
6.I find labels of some supplement bottles misleading. For example, an L-theanine label says 200 mg on the front but the back says each pill contains just 100 mg, noting that a serving is 2 capsules. Is this legal?
