Improperly balanced hormonal levels lead to all kinds of health problems including symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), hormonal acne, menstrual irregularities and menopause symptoms.
One common hormonal problem in women is known as estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance is characterized by elevated estrogen and low progesterone levels. The ingredients in Saw Palmetto Plus for Women work together to reduce symptoms associated with hormone imbalance:
Saw Palmetto can be used in women with estrogen dominance due to its action on the inhibition of an enzyme called 5 alpha-reductase, which in turn lessons the action of testosterone, inactivates estrogen receptors and prevents the destruction of progesterone. This dual action on estrogen and progesterone makes Saw Palmetto an excellent choice for estrogen dominance.
Saw Palmetto also reduces the effect of testosterone which can also be very beneficial. Testosterone stimulates the formation of sebum, a natural skin lubricant that can clog pores and cause acne. By reducing the action of testosterone, Saw Palmetto decreases sebum production and reduces acne.
