Potential Health Benefits:

 

Hormone regulation

 

Testosterone is a vital hormone for women, and one that tends to decrease as we age. Testosterone levels are directly related to bone health, blood cells, libido, and reproductive hormones in women. Elevated testosterone levels can have adverse effects including frontal balding, acne, increased muscle mass, and deepening of voice. High levels of testosterone can also lead to infertility and are commonly seen in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Inadvertently, decreased testosterone levels in women can lead to vaginal dryness, hot flashes and night sweats, fatigue and low energy levels, thinning hair, muscle weakness, weight gain, irregular menstrual cycles, dry skin, mood changes and difficulty concentrating. Saw Palmetto works to balance testosterone levels in a woman’s body therefore lending to regulated hormonal and overall systemic functioning.

 

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a strong form of testosterone that is a vital hormone and sex steroid aiding in hair composition, sebum, and urinary health. Saw palmetto works to stabilize testosterone in females and block the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Elevated levels of DHT can lead to increased body hair and acne and affect menstrual cycles in women.

 

Another important female hormone that plays a vital role in reproductive health is Androgen. Women with elevated levels of Androgen hormone can develop cysts on the ovaries, a health condition called Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS symptoms include irregular periods, infertility, acne, and weight gain, as well as excess hair growth on t
