Everyone talks about Saw Palmetto as a natural cure for hair loss. Does it really work for you? Read what it did to me

Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens or Sabal serrulata) is a dwarf palm plant native to North America. It primarily grows along the Atlantic coast in Georgia and Florida. The active ingredients are believed to be found in the plant’s brown-black berries. Saw Palmetto can be bought as natural supplement pills from many drug store without any prescription required and is not very expensive to buy. I read about the positive effect of using Saw Palmetto to stop hair loss and so i decided to try it. Be careful that there are various side effects too, in taking this supplement. Side effects are not the same for all people and may vary according to the way your body handles the supplement ingredients.

How it works is that it may block an enzyme (5-alpha-reductase) from allowing the hormone testosterone from being converted to another hormone, dihydrotestosterone. Dihydrotestosterone is considered a key contributing factor to the onset and progression of androgenic alopecia

In weeks time of taking this supplement, i could see some positive results already and small tiny hairs could be seen growing from the scalp. These new hair growth unlike the ones obtained from using Topical Minoxidil solution or Oral Finasteride are much thicker and stronger.  The new hair doesn’t fall off that easy either after stoping the use of Saw Palmetto. The only problems i experience were the mild headaches, stomach pain, bad breath, nausea, lost of energy. If you think you can handle these problems then you could go for this remedy of taking Saw Palmetto Supplement, otherwise it is better to choose an alternate remedy for hair loss. I was on the Saw Palmetto supplement for about a year untill i decided i couldn’t take it no more with all those side effects. I did gained back quite some hair on the scalp and they were thick and strong, but all those side effects could not be tolerated anymore. Overall, i would say for those who have a stonger tolerance to the side effects, taking Saw Palmetto have a good potential as a remedy for stopping hair loss.
