Saw Palmetto helps men with benign enlargement of the prostate. It is virtually free of side effects, but you have to take it for several weeks before you notice any benefit. The daily dose is 80 milligrams of the standardized “lipoidal” extract - look for that designation on the label. Saw Palmetto does not reduce libido or testosterone levels.
