Saw Palmetto and Testosterone


#1

Can saw palmetto lower testosterone? I know that it lowers DHT but this wouldnt effect my overall testosterone numbers would it?


#2

a quick search found a abstract that said sp does not lower serum test levels, but i would like to hear other opinions on this.

some sites even said it could increase test.


#3

Ive read that it increases "free" testosterone, and ive also read it does nothing for testosterone


#4

I have been taking saw palmetto for 20 years. The latest blood test showed me above average in the testerone measurement.
