Saw palmetto (or Serenoa repens) is a special and unique dwarf palm tree that is indigenous to the southeastern United States. Scientists have estimated that some saw palmetto plants are thousands of years old. They thrive in wild pine forests and dunes, particularly in the state of Florida. The trees can grow up to 8 feet tall with “toothed” leaves resembling a saw, thus giving rise to the name “saw” palmetto.
As a man, you know you have one, but until you reach a certain age you probably never think about your prostate. That’s because when other parts of the body stop growing by the age of 25, the prostate is likely to gradually enlarge, beginning around age 40. And eventually, this prostate enlargement can lead to more frequent trips to the bathroom.
Studies have shown about 3 out of 4 adults in the US are taking at least one dietary supplement per day. Some take vitamins to augment what might be missing from their diet, while others take supplements in hopes of improving or maintaining their health.
