Black berries of Saw Palmetto have been used in Europe for decades for their therapeutic properties to ease the symptoms of cell proliferation, inflammations and benign prostatic gland enlargement. However, in the U.S., this natural remedy has been used since the times of ancient civilizations. For example, the Mayans used Saw Palmetto for its excellent tonic and antiseptic properties. Now, Saw Palmetto plants grow naturally in Georgia, Florida and some other Southern states.

The main advantage of Saw Palmetto products for hair loss prevention is its natural ability to block the 5-alpha reductase enzyme responsible for testosterone conversion to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This conversion is considered to be one of the main factors causing the progression of hair thinning and hair loss (Androgenic Alopecia), both male and female patterns.  DHT causes shrinking of hair follicles in men, that results in slowed down hair development, hair thinning and baldness. In addition, it was reported that in many cases the conversion of testosterone to DHT promotes hair growth in the places where it is unwanted.
