I want to try Saw Palmetto to prevent hair loss as my hair around the temples has started to recede (pretty normal I guess, I'm 25). But I read that another use for Saw Palmetto is to stimulate breast growth in women AND men. Yeah, I don't want that. Does anyone have any experience taking saw palmetto and experiencing breast growth or lack thereof?

I'm about to start in under a week or so, I'll let you know if you can hold on. It might take a while. If you want my opinion on the matter, the those accusations are false.

Have been taking 160 mg of Saw Palmetto twice a day for a little over a month for BPH and have experienced significant breast growth! I am about 40 lbs overweight which does not help at all. My BPH symptoms are much improved so I have a very difficult decision to make. Conventional medical treatments for my BPH symptoms have had little or no effect. My wife says stay on the Saw Palmetto and who cares if I have breasts if it's helping me. My fear is that I will soon be needing my wifes bras!

I really doubt Saw Palmetto would do all that. I know it can cause some mild side effects but it is 1/10,000 the strength DHT blocker Propecia is. If you took Propecia or Avodart and did not get side effects than the sides you are having are not from Saw Palmetto most likely. Also instead of coming to a forum to complain of sides while you continue taking the stuff, why not stop taking it and see you Doctor.

Very unlikely Jenna, even with Dutasteride that would not happen.

If you look up saw palmetto its beneifts and side effects, everything will will tell you increase in breast growth. It's definately true. If you don't believe me just look it up anywhere!

I started taking it to help the hair shedding I was having and I noticed my chest went up about a half a cup size. I thought it was just my imagination but...I'm pretty much busting out of all of my bras. Before taking it, I never heard anything about it increasing chest size. I wouldn't of taken it if I knew.

Hi, have I understood things right. A pill a day and the shame away. Does it or does it not make breasts grow on women?

It helps with androgenic alopecia, your hair wont stop thinning but it will slow down.

This guy is definitely under 25 and obv an effing moron. Guy prob has never actually touched, taken or even known anyone with saw palmetto I guarantee this guy is an idiot I took it for myself a few different times, always for bph and always within a month I get guarantee breast growth. Thing is ive always had a pocket of fat under my nipples which is way normal for a big % of most men past 30. I think if you already have this "starter pocket" your much more likely to have the breast growth since your already prone to it.

Either way slim is exactly why u don't listen to dipshit kids on the Internet with no life.

i was taking this for 2 years on and off, and i've gotta say its only in the last couple months i've realised my chest isn't muscle but some other tissue, since i had to quit training for a job.

if i was able to start working out again it would probably become unnoticeable again, but yeah needless to say i'm a little concerned.

i was taking the holland and barretts brand SP.

I have been on finasteride, which helped a great deal while I continued estrogen/progesterone therapy. I was on female hormones for about three yrs. I also supplement L-arginine; fennel seed; soy isoflavones, and maintain a diet high in phytoestrogens. I have had great results,(a healthy B cup)..my nipples are huge! I'm going to add saw palmetto to my regimen.I have heard that dong quai is a great herb for breast dev.

SP will increase breast size. Slowly. By itself it would probably take years for it to enlarge your breasts. The reason it does this is because of Phytoestrogens, the plant version of estrogen. Although it is NOT a hormone like estrogen, your body will react to it in a similar manner. For example in this case, it will affect your breasts by causing the area to retain water, which results in larger breasts. But, taking one pill of just SP alone most likely will not achieve this. You need HIGH VOLUME of phytoestrogens being introduced by different supplements and foods, while being applied in different ways.

Natural chemicals are what develop your body. High calcium in your diet helps for better nails, hair, and bones. Sugars from fruit help sperm count and energy. Vitamin E makes your skin better. If you control the amounts, balanced or unbalanced for an effect, you control the development of your body. It CAN be done. We are not machines that cannot be changed, we are biology.
