So, what is saw palmetto?

Saw palmetto is a small, fan-like palm tree that grows in warm climates, primarily in the Southeastern United States. The fruit of this plant is commonly harvested and used for medicinal purposes, particularly as a natural remedy for enlarged prostate and urinary tract issues. It contains high levels of fatty acids and phytosterols, which are believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. Saw palmetto is typically consumed in supplement form or added to teas, tinctures, and other herbal remedies. This versatile ingredient has been used for centuries by indigenous peoples and continues to be popular among natural health enthusiasts today.
