In brief: No
While some men feel that saw palmetto improves their urinary symptoms, most well conducted studies do not show a benefit from saw palmetto.
A recently published paper in jama showed that saw palmetto was no better than placebo. In addition, saw palmetto has never been shown to chnage or stop prostate growth.
