Saw Palmetto Herb
Saw Palmetto, also know as Sabal Serrulatum, is a small fan palm with a sprawling trunk that produces fruit. Saw Palmetto is very slow growing and is endemic to the coastal southern United States.
The farther inland it is found the leaves of the Saw Palmetto will be greener whereas more coastally they are silvery white.
The fruit of the Saw Palmetto is rich in essential fatty acids and the juice is being studied for treatment of urinary tract infections and benign enlarged prostate conditions. It is thought that the Native Americans would dry the fruit of the Saw Palmetto and use it as a food source all year long. The Native medicine men would keep Saw Palmetto in the medicine bags and use it for treatment of importance and as a general tonic for the body.
Today Saw Palmetto is primarily used for conditions associated with enlarged prostate; however, there are other herbal remedies Saw Palmetto is used in.
