I agree with Ann. Saw Palmetto does not have anything to do with your man boobs. Estrogen probably does though.

Soy is a big item you should cut out. Also check ingredients on processed/prepackaged food as most of them contain soy.

Re: Saw Palmetto INCREASE MAN BOOBS?

Typically, men use Saw Palmetto as an over-the-counter alternative to prescription drugs to treat an enlarged prostate because it is suppose to control conversion of testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that causes Male Pattern Baldness and was widely believed to cause an enlarged prostate as well. Enlarged male breasts can be caused by too much DHT so Saw Palmetto should have the opposite effect. However, if you are concerned about your hormone levels there are better ways to naturally regulate them. Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, contain Diindolylmethane (DIM) that naturally regulates both male and female hormones and if you do indeed have "man boobs" due to too much estrogen, increasing your intake of these or taking a DIM supplement may help until you can have a full hormonal blood workup.
