Re: please help....

I know men have recieved hormonal and acne benefits from taking saw palmetto in conjunction with other therapies. Though I can't look it up for you right now, my instinct tells me it would not do you much good. I could be wrong. Look it up online.

Re: please help....

I took some saw palmetto that was in a combination herb (i'm female) for many months, and nothing bad happened...
I don't know if it helps with acne or not, but it certainly didn't cause me any strange side effects.

Here is a quote from SweetJade1...
