How Much Saw Palmetto is Needed to Maintain Prostate Health?
Vitamins and Supplements FAQs • April 30, 2011
Question: I'm interested in your saw palmetto. I've read your literature regarding taking “ 320 mg softgels per day,” yet when I read the copy for Swanson Superior Herbs Saw Palmetto, it only offers 160 mg. To be effective I understood that 320 mg is the recommended dosage per day. Please clarify how much saw palmetto per day?

The most common dosage of saw palmetto is 160 mg of a standardized extract two times per day (total of 320 mg). However, individuals may choose to take more or less based on their own health situation. According to the experts at the Dietary Supplement Information Bureau, the daily dosage range is as little as 160 mg to as high as 740 mg (and anything in between) of a standardized extract.
