How to take Saw Palmetto safely

Post  MikeGore on Thu Oct 05, 2017 10:43 am

Saw Palmetto is beneficial for prostate health as well as possibly our hair.

How can we safely take this supplement without worrying about side effects such erectile dysfunction or gynocomastia?

Is there something we can take it in conjuction with which will guarauntee to protect us from its side effects?

Regards,

Mike

This is a great question. There's probably not a one size fits all answer, except for making a general statement that the body may seek balance....Of course what exactly does that mean? Could be very different in each person--translation a lot of self discovery and experimentation.

For example, I had these sorts of issues in my past (and yes, with Saw Palmetto)....that was before I explored the entire balance of everything. Being obsessed with perfect hair eventually allowed me to resolve other health complains (some I never realized I had) while no longer thinking about my own hair.

Thanks for your reply CS.

I am currently taking Saw Palmetto in conjuction with DIM. My main concern are side effects like gynocomastia.

I have read horror stories relating the bad effects of finasteride and some even state that saw palmetto may similarly cause the same effects.

To mitigate this I feel its important to take Saw Palmetto together with other supplements.

I am considering adding Maca also. If we were to make a list, would it be good to say that if you are taking Saw Palmetto we should also take:

-DIM
-Maca
-Green Tea
-Zinc

?

Thanks

Mike

The only thing I can speak about without knowing any specific details is if gynocomastia is a concern, then some amount (400 mg or higher) of chasteberry (st. vitex) would likely help, because of the prolactin reducing amount. Prolactin is secreted from the anterior pituitary, and this herb taken in decent amounts can reduce it.

Would avoid if anyone wants to create children, as it will reduce the chance of conception.

Thanks CS.

I have been taken Vitex for a month now. I really want to reverse my hair loss so I am taken Saw Palmetto at a high dose.

If I am taken 3000mg Saw Palmetto http://amzn.to/2B0Jwj2. I have recently upped my dosage to two pills so 6000mg a day.

I am using 400mg Vitex http://amzn.to/2mCb0br.

How much dosage of Vitex would I need to take to protect me from gynocomastia and other side effects of Saw Palmetto?

I am also taking DIM hoping that also helps to protect from side effects.

There's so much more than the 5-AR factor, however in brief, would suggest increasing the vitex and lowering the saw palmetto.

"more is not better" with saw palmetto. It can stimulate the glands to positive to a point, however a feedback loop is created and the body will downregulate or create an imbalance to compensate where something will not go well.

I ditched the 5-AR direct attack approach prior to the mid-2000's, because it just wasn't enough and, it affected me mentally, and physically in negative ways.

If you feel comforted by still using the 5-AR blocking approach, would suggest adding some type of mitochondrial enhancement to your routine.
