How Saw Palmetto can help stop hair loss

By: Lorien Strydom

Hair loss in both men and women is called androgenetic alopecia, and it’s common as everyone ages. It’s caused by the hormone testosterone, and its conversion into a molecule called DHT. This alteration causes hair follicles to shrink, resulting in hair loss. Men have more testosterone than women do, so balding is more common in men.

There are many treatments for hair loss. In recent years, hairpieces and hair extensions have gained popularity. Topical medications and oral drugs are other popular methods people use to treat thinning hair. Surgical procedures such as hair plugs also work well. But medications can have side effects and surgery can be expensive.

What is Saw Palmetto?

Saw palmetto is an alternative remedy used to treat hair loss. It’s a plant with small berries that has been used by Native Americans as medicine and food for hundreds of years. There’s also evidence that this herbal remedy may treat an enlarged prostate. 

Some people use saw palmetto for colds and coughs, sore throat, asthma, chronic bronchitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and migraine headache. It is also used to increase urine flow, to promote relaxation (as a sedative), and to enhance sexual drive (as an aphrodisiac). 

The Benefits of Saw Palmetto for Hair Loss

According to studies, saw palmetto may help block the activity of 5-alpha reductase (5α-R), an enzyme that converts testosterone into a hormone linked to hair loss called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In another study, saw palmetto was effective at improving hair growth in 60% of men with male pattern baldness between the ages of 23 and 64.

One study showed positive results for men treated with topical saw palmetto and 10 percent trichogen veg complex. Nearly half of the 25 participants increased their hair count by 11.9 percent after four months of treatment. Another study in 62 adults showed that applying saw palmetto topically for 3 months increased hair density by 35%

Other benefits of saw palmetto include:

  • Improves urinary tract function
  • May support prostate health
  • May decrease inflammation
  • Helps regulate testosterone levels
