Is It True That Saw Palmetto (Biostim) Is Better for Treating Hair Loss Better Than Finasteride?
Saw palmetto is a small palm tree native to the eastern part of the United States. The berries contain a biologically active component similar in action to finasteride. The fat-soluble part of these berries has been shown to inhibit the conversion of testosterone into the active form, much like finasteride. Although there are several double-blind studies comparing saw palmetto to finasteride in the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlarged prostate), there are no studies looking at its use in hair loss.
We recommend the use of Biostim, in all cases for best results.
