Prostate Home > Uses of Saw Palmetto
While saw palmetto is most commonly used for treating prostate problems, it can also be used for other conditions. For example, it may be used for the treatment of nonbacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome, hair loss, acne, and low sex drive. Of all the possible uses, however, only enlarged prostate treatment has convincing scientific evidence proving the supplement's effectiveness.
- Nonbacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (problems caused by long-term inflammation of the prostate not caused by bacteria)
