The fruit or berries of Sabal serrulata are used to make Saw palmetto tincture. These are the size of olives and contain an oil known simply as ‘saw palmetto oil’, rich in a substance called β-sitosterol. Saw palmetto berries are popular as a food supplement for many uses, including to help maintain the health of a normal prostate gland.
Saw palmetto oil is used at a dose of 320mg to help relieve the symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
