Saw Palmetto, also known as cabbage palm, is a fan palm that grows as a tree or shrub. It has a distinctive sweet aroma, with a taste that is described as slightly soapy and acrid. The berries are too bitter to add to foods but can be used to make tinctures and extracts. When making tea, usually they are combined with other herbs and spices to enhance flavor.
The plant has been used in traditional, eclectic and alternative medicine for many health benefits and with a specific connection to men's health. Saw palmetto is commonly used for conditions affecting the prostate and to fight hair loss. It’s also associated with other benefits, including decreased inflammation, improved urinary function, and hormone balance. Saw palmetto contains high antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
