Can saw palmetto cause man boobs?

Possibly but... Saw palmetto is reported to occasionally cause gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) but no one knows how common this is. It is not very common, as I have had many patients take this and none have reported this. Saw palmetto interferes with the conversion of testosterone to DHT. DHT aggravates prostate enlargement and baldness, but topical DHT may be effective in treating gynecomastia.
