Saw Palmetto is a palm tree with fan-shaped leaves, which is native to the south-eastern US.

The ripe fruit of the tree, deep purple berries, are used to create some herbal medicines, such as saw palmetto extract. However clinical studies have found that the fruit is ineffective and shows the same results as a placebo for the conditions it claims to ease.
