Saw palmetto is generally recommended for men, since there is now documented medical evidence that it helps to reduce an enlarged prostate. But there are some other uses for it, although it should be noted that these uses have not yet been proved by scientific evidence. Among these uses, recommended by practitioners of alternative medicine, are some that might be useful for women-- reducing symptoms of asthma, reducing chronic pelvic pain, and reducing the pain of migraine headaches.
