Product Details

One half ounce, cut and sifted.100% Certified Kosher.

Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens), is a small palm native to the southeastern coast of the United States. Its distinctive feature is the saw-like teeth that line the edges of its long leaf stems, hence the common name. Historically, Native Americans used the saw palmetto for various purposes. They employed the fan-shaped leaves for practical applications like weaving baskets and thatching roofs.

Medicinally, saw palmetto extract, derived from the ripe berries, is most used today for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition affecting the prostate gland in men. It's important to note that saw palmetto supplements can interact with certain medications, so consulting your healthcare professional before use is crucial.

The ripe berries are reported to have a sweet or slightly bitter taste and can be consumed raw or dried. However, it's not a common ingredient in modern cooking.
