SawPalmettoAAH-LG

Serenoa repens is a member of the palm family (Arecaceae) and is native to the southeastern United State, particularly Florida. While it is primarily used for benign protatic hyperplasia (BPH), it may also be useful for women and the elderly as an adaptogen and urinary antiseptic.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on saw palmetto made available through the generosity of Valensa’s adoption.
