Are those safe? Some have reported side-effects like decreased cognitive ability after taking saw palmetto long term.
I guess you could say they are safe in small amounts but most people mega dose to see results. Beta Sitosterol is the main ingredient in saw palmetto that decreases dht. I'm guessing this is why people see such good results when using it. Side effects wise I would definitely have to agree that I couldn't think as clearly as normal. I just ordered a cream called Nothing to Hide by Plexy Labs a few days ago. I asked people on here if anyone had used it or thought the company was reputable. Sadly no one replied Sooo I stepped out in faith. They claim that it blocks dht on the skin and it doesn't have any side effects.
Great. Please remember to tell about your experiences with that cream! I hope it helps. I may order it someday. So you used beta sitosterol? Did it clear your acne completely?
I definitely will! I have high hopes The pills i took were 350 mg and i started to see clearing in the second week. That was with just taking one pill a day. My body is pretty sensitive to supplements though so dosage might be more for other people. I was almost completely clear but the side effects were not worth it.
I would just like to remind people that if you need a really high dose of saw palmetto to see results, you can try lowering your dose and making up the difference with spironolactone CREAM, which is safe for males, and you can buy over the counter.
The only problem is that you can find a lot of men complain that Spironolactone cream actually caused a drop in there overall androgen levels. So that means that this strong anti-androgen does get absorbed through your skin, but to the point it gets into your blood stream. From what I understand is that it blocks all androgens in general and works as an antagonist to their receptors. I would rather just down regulate DHT production without harming my testosterone levels as well.
