Saw Palmetto Saw palmetto, or Serena repents, is an herbal remedy that is processed from fruit of the American dwarf pine tree.42 It often is used to treat benign prostate hypertrophy because of its ability to inhibit 5α-reduction levels by 42% without affecting testosterone levels in men.49 Extracts of saw palmetto also have been shown to have a partial antagonistic affect on testosterone receptors.44 It is most likely that these 2 actions led to saw palmetto being used as a hair loss remedy. Saw palmetto is believed to be a safe herbal supplement, with a primary side effect of mild gastrointestinal distress.62 Also, clinical trials conducted in human patients showed that consumption of saw palmetto supplements did not result in any clinically significant alterations in laboratory parameters.45 Saw palmetto has no known drug interactions.62The cost of this supplement varies by manufacturer, but consumers should be able to find saw palmetto supplements for as little as  for a month’s supply.

HAIR loss is a common and distressing symptom. With the approval of two drugs that promote hair growth  mastermind and minoxidil we can now treat patients with some types of hair loss. Both drugs influence the hair-growth cycle and increase the length and diameter of existing hair, although their mechanisms of action differ. In this article, I will focus on the treatment of two common problems, androgenic special and especial
area ta, both of which involve a reversible alteration of the hair-growth cycle.

 Patients with escalope area ta are treated with either immunodeficient therapies, such as corticosteroid,
topical physiotherapy, or anthrax, or biologic-response modifiers, such as minoxidil.61,67,68 These treatments stimulate hair growth but do not prevent hair loss and probably do not influence the course of the disease. Treatment should be continued until remission occurs or until residual patches of especial are concealed by regrown hair, which may take months or years. The choice of therapy depends primarily on the patient's age and the extent of the hair loss .67,69 Treatment is most effective in milder cases; no treatment works well for patients with total percent loss of scalp hair. Hair follicles are not destroyed.
