Herbs That Prevent Hair Loss – Saw Palmetto

Posted on

A great way to prevent hair loss or cure it is the use of herbs that are proven to do the job. Such herbs are Eleuthero Root, Uva-Ursi, Muria Puama, Saw Palmetto and more. In this article we are going to concentrate on one of them.

As most of you probably know Saw Palmetto is used for general prostate health and prostate cancer prevention, but did you know that its also great for preventing hair loss?

Saw Palmetto is also known as Serenoa Repens. This plant can be found in some parts of the southern US. Its been used by people with prostate problems for quite some time and thats how its hair loss prevention effect was discovered. Those people noticed a change in their amount of hair or a decelerated hair loss process. This was enough to convince scientists around the world to test Saw Palmetto and see if it can really aid people suffering from hair loss. They all agreed that Saw Palmetto a.k.a. Serenoa Repens prevents hair loss by blocking the affects of testosterone.

Testosterone is considered a main reason for male pattern baldness. That’s why many medications, used to prevent or reverse hair loss, work by preventing the damaging affects of this male hormone. The best medications for hair loss are the ones that are natural. They are a mix of herbs and plants, and as you see have more than one positive effect. For example taking a hair loss supplement containing Saw Palmetto will actually help your prostate health.

Medications containing Saw Palmetto are shampoos, lotions and supplements. The ones with the most positive effects and the best reputation for stopping hair loss and promoting hair regrowth are the supplements.

My advice to you is- if you even see the smallest signs of hair loss act right away! As the problem progresses it will become harder to cure it, timing is the key.
