Daily Health Tips update for April 19:

Saw PalmettoSaw Palmetto is a widely known herbal supplement for men’s health. It is used traditionally to help support a healthy prostate. But is it safe for women? Would there be any benefit for women using saw palmetto?

The short answer is yes, saw palmetto is perfectly safe for both men and women to take. However, women wouldn’t get as much of a benefit as men would, as women obviously don’t have prostates. But aside from prostate health benefits, saw palmetto is also a good natural source of fatty acids, sterols and antioxidants, so there are other benefits that women can enjoy.
