    I have an enlarged prostate and have been taking 320mg daily for 6 months at the recommendation of my physician, who is also a naturopath. I did see positive results after 2 weeks. Instead of getting up in the middle of the night, I only had to urinate 2 to 3 times in the morning beginning at 5:30 a.m. Not the results I was hoping for, but it was an improvement. I am no longer taking Saw Palmetto ... Show Full Comment

    Based on the NCCIH: "High-quality scientific studies have shown that saw palmetto is no more effective than a placebo (an inactive substance) in relieving urinary tract symptoms caused by prostate enlargement. These studies include a 2011 NIH-funded study that tested saw palmetto in amounts up to three times the usual dose."

    I have been taking two 320 mg Trader Joe's Saw Palmetto pills a day for over a decade. It works for me. No side effects. A few years ago, I cut back to one pill a day. My BPH began to return. I went back to two pills and the symptoms disappeared. Coincidental? TJ's just eliminated this product. I ordered Nature's Bounty 450 mg pure saw palmetto from Walmart. More potent at less cost.
