Saw Palmetto all but stopped the hot flashes I was having. The flashes were quite bothersome for several months, but not super-severe. However, saw palmetto curbed those flashes and completely stopped the night sweats. Oh, and it kick started my libido. I love saw palmetto!

I am taking 250mg of Saw Palmetto every day. Can anyone tell me does it effect testosterone and cause problems in generating sperm? I read many articles but it is not clear whether it effects or not.

I've been taking 3 160 mg soft gels of saw palmetto and 2000 mg of pumpkin seed oil per day for 6 months. Now I find that getting up at night have been reduced from 3 times a night to 1. My bladder empties more completely and I'm just generally more comfortable.

Yes..I had pain for weeks during my last prostate episode (during chemo) and after a few day of 2 tablets a day no pain and no getting up every 3 hours to go to the bathroom. I sleep 5 to 6 hours now and no pain.

Purchased the GNC Prostate for my husband, and it did not work. Our Doctor recommended the Dr. Max Powers Prostate Support supplements, and he said it is working so much better. A little more expensive but like the old saying goes YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. So He would recommend the Dr Max Powers brand Prostate supplements over the GHC ones.

I've used SP for about a year and it seems to have lessened my frequent trips to the bathroom. The last few months though I've had difficulty sleeping due to a sensation of heat and sweating in the groin area. I stopped taking the pills a few days ago and there is definitely a welcomed return to normal. If this lasts I will never again use SP.

There are so many people out there lying saying this doesn't work.I had issues on the urination tip.Because I was experiencing an enlarged prostate it helped me the first day and I plan on taking it as long s it helps me .

Saw Palmetto is great! My husband has taken one 160 mg. supplement a day for a few years for prostate issues and only has to get up to pee once each night. I've experienced symptoms of hormonal imbalance all my adult life such as: oily skin, acne, hair loss, possibly bone loss and in the last year hot flashes and night sweats. After some research I decided to try taking the same pills my husband takes for my hair loss. It's only been two weeks, but I've already noticed my skin is less oily, my acne has improved, the hot flashes are nearly gone, and my libido seems to be returning. Hair takes more time to tell. I take two 160 mg. pills of saw palmetto (berry) oil extract a day.

I have hot flashes all night long, they keep me awake, last for almost 1-2 minutes at a time. Sure hope this stuff works for me, worth the try, can't stand sweating so much especially during these hot humid summer days.
