Hi there!

Saw palmetto allegedly helps reduce prostatic enlargement and there have been a few citations for it being effective in benign hyperplasia. However its use has been associated with side effects and use is only advised after consultation with a doctor.
Hope this helps.

Take care!

I had quite severe BHP and taking proscar and cardura. Had always difficulty urinating. I tried saw palmetto and it made me unable to urinate at all. I had to go to hospital.
