Abstract: A recent Cochrane review concluded that saw palmetto is not superior to placebo, although the heterogeneity of products and doses studied makes combining results into a meta-analysis problematic. In direct comparisons, saw palmetto demonstrated efficacy equal to finasteride and tamsulosin, with fewer side effects and lower cost.
