    Default Saw Palmetto??

    Any one know about this?

    http://altmedicine.about.com/od/qali...awpalmetto.htm

    I know its for prostate.. but by what i understand is.. the older you get your prostate in some people can get bigger causing problem.. etc.. but it also seems that because of its hormone level and all that, this herb seems to keep the DHT level from being combined with what ever the other part is that causes hair loss?


    here is a quote in that link:
    "Although we still don't know exactly how it works, it's believed that it may block an enzyme (5-alpha-reductase) from allowing the hormone testosterone from being converted to another hormone, dihydrotestosterone. Dihydrotestosterone is considered a key contributing factor to the onset and progression of androgenic alopecia and benign prostatic hyperplasia. "

    im nearly 30, i dont really want to take this stuff if i dont have problems down under.. but if it didnt do any harm and hept my hair on my head why not..


    any thoughts?
