Saw Palmetto Acne Treatment

While I don’t know of any studies on saw palmetto as a treatment for acne, some herbalists have seen good results. I include saw palmetto in acne formulas that includes other herbs such as vitex, burdock root and milk thistle. The combination helps some teenagers who have serious cases of acne. Theoretically, saw palmetto reduces hormonal stimulation of the sebum glands, so fewer pustules form.
