Saw Palmetto Hair Care

Saw Palmetto is traditional topical herbal medicine used to help improve skin and scalp conditions, maintain healthy skin and hair, reverse hair loss. It was used by American Indians as hair, scalp and skin care. It is said to revitalize mature skin, to bring olive shine to the skin, to help revive hair follicles, improve hair strength, body and shine, make scalp less sensitive to stress and irritation. More recently Saw Palmetto received recognition in the areas of men's health and women's health both as preventative remedy and as safe and effective treatment to reverse development of certain pathological conditions, combat alopecia. Scientific research confirm that majority of Saw Palmetto bioactive ingredients are of lipophilic nature, and therefore are extracted into the oil and well assimilated by the skin. These observations suggest that when applied topically, the active ingredients of Saw Palmetto may be more bioavailable and therefore provide more effective treatment for particular body areas and organs.

Nutritional value of Saw Palmetto oil extract

The extract contains full spectrum of lipophilic ingredients as well as volatile and semivolatile ingredients of the berries. At the same time, it is free of insoluble and therefore non-digestible, non-absorbable components of the berries. About 85 - 95 % of the extract are represented by the fatty acids, however not all fatty acids are from Saw Palmetto; part comes from the olive oil. On the basis of accounting for the weight of olive oil and Saw Palmetto berries used for the extraction, as well as obtained extract and residuals, the percentage of the actual Saw Palmetto nutrients in the extract was determined as 35 - 45%. Therefore, when used as a dietary supplement, about 0.4 - 0.5 ml of the oil extract may be considered as equal to usually recommended dosage of 160 mg of powder extract. It should be mentioned, that actual ratio should be more in favor of the oil extract, because the part of powder extracts are represented by not-soluble and, therefore, non-absorbable ingredients. Saw Palmetto extract is all-natural preparation, it may be used as a skin or scalp treatment as well as a dietary supplement.

Suggested use

As scalp/hair care - gently massage into the hair roots. If applied before hair wash, let at least half an hour (better 1-2 hours) to absorb. For better absorption warm up in warm water or microwave (5 - 10 sec) before the application. Preferably, apply before sleep and leave overnight.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/2 - 1 tea spoon per day, for better results combine two ways of treatment.

Hair loss prevention - apply oil extract for 1 - 2 hours before the hair wash. Massage into scalp, cover with shower cap and towel, stay in warm place during the treatment to promote the assimilation. For better results combine with herbal hair rinse and Burdock root oil. As an alternative approach, apply every evening before going to bed and let stay overnight. Please note, most well recognized mechanism of action of Saw Palmetto appears to be an inhibition of DHT production. Accordingly, only continuous treatment may help combat alopecia and reverse hair loss conditions.

Men's health - combine dietary supplement use and topical applications of the oil extract. As a dietary supplements use 1 teaspoons per day, to improve the taste mix 1 part of Rose hip oil with two parts of Saw Palmetto oil. As a topical treatment - apply to target areas, massage in. Repeat applications every day.

Women's health - combine topical applications of the oil extract with the use as a dietary supplement . As a dietary supplements use 1 teaspoons per day, to improve the taste mix 1 part of Rose hip oil with two parts of Saw Palmetto oil. As a topical treatment - apply to target areas and around, massage in. Repeat applications daily, preferably in the morning and in the evening.

Please note, due to high content of Saw Palmetto ingredients in the oil extract, some components may occasionally precipitate when exposed to below ambient temperatures. Because oil extract is obtained by direct cold extraction, the precipitation is fully reversible. To reverse precipitation, warm up the vial in a hot water for a short time or microwave the vial for 5 - 10 sec and shake. Repeat if full transparency of the oil is not restored. Do not overheat, as it may reduce the potency of the extract. Keep in cool dark place.saw palmetto oil extract

Standardized Saw Palmetto oil extract

Saw Palmetto olive oil extract standardized to beta-sitosterol content of 1 mg/ml.
Beta-sitosterol is believed to be one of the main active ingredients of Saw Palmetto. It has been proven to possess several health beneficial properties, and demonstrate positive effects in a number of clinical trials. Sitosterol is used in Germany for the treatment of benign prostrate hypertrophy (BPH) with general positive response. A regular recommended daily dose taken in pills corresponds to about 40 mg of beta-sitosterol. It has been used earlier in Germany for the treatment of soft-tissue rheumatism with moderate success. Sitosterol was shown to lower the absorption rate of cholesterol and is used in some countries for the treatment of mild cases of hypercholesterolemia. Side effects are only reported with consumption of mega high doses, like 10 grams (10,000 mg) and more per day and are mainly related to symptoms of constipation.

Assuming low absorption rate of beta-sitosterol, which is about 5% in humans, the consumption of 40 mg of beta-sitosterol per day in pills, corresponds to assimilation of about 2 mg. Therefore it appears that already 2 mg of beta-sitosterol taken systemically may significantly affect DHT production. The rate of assimilation of beta-sitosterol when applied topically may be expected to be significantly higher, as it occurs for many lipophilic substances. With expected topical application dose of the Saw Palmetto extract in the range of 0.5 - 1 ml per day, the extract was standardized at 1 mg/ml of beta-sitosterol to optimize expected health beneficial action. The standardized extract as well as other Floraleads oil extracts is all natural product and contains no artificial ingredients.
Suggested use - same as for raw Saw Palmetto extract.
