I've just bought some Saw Palmetto to hopefully help with my moderate acne, and each tablet contains 1000mg. However, i've just read that 320mg a day should be enough to help acne! Has anybody had any experience with saw palmetto? How much did you take etc?
Thanks for your help :)

I'm literally waiting for my saw palmetto to get delivered, I ordered 320mg tablets that are standardized 85-95% fatty acids and plant sterols (active components)

I'm from the UK as well and didn't see any pure saw palmetto tablets larger than 320mg. Is there anything else in the tablets?

I plan to take 1 or 2 tablets a day

I am also waiting to get some in the post. 320mg of standerdized saw palmetto. Been wondering whether to take 1 or 2 a day. I have a very strong feeling my acne is stress/hormone related. Hopefully this will clear me up.

Ah just read the small print, and it says it contains 400mg saw palmetto extract which is equal to 1000mg of the whole herb. So I guess they're really just 400mg each.
And yeah, I think I'll start with 1 tablet a day and then move up to 2 :)
