Yes.: Does not hurt the person and has definite, albeit mild benefits. If i were on a medication for bph, i would take this supplement.

Maybe for some: Maybe for some, not for most men. Some men have found that taking saw palmetto has relieved BPH symptoms. However, several large studies did not show that saw palmetto helped.
