Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) berries are the fruiting bodies of one of the most ubiquitous palm trees in Florida, the Dwarf Saw Palmetto. The berries are collected in late August. It’s an arduous task that must be done by hand. This can be dangerous since poisonous snakes love to hide under the saw palmetto thickets. The ripe berries can be green, yellow, red or black and contain a range of natural fatty acids which have been extensively studied. An early mention of the use of Saw Palmetto was written in the American Journal of Pharmacy in 1879. Many traditional societies, including Mayans and Seminole Native people of Florida, have used Saw Palmetto Berries as food, both as a tonic and to support urinary tract and prostate health*.
Saw Palmetto is used to support urinary tract health* for women as well as men. It also promotes prostate health*.
