Not too long ago, I wrote about a study that touted the benefits of drinking spearmint tea to help with excess facial and body hair in women (hirsutism) caused by a hormonal imbalance where too much androgen hormones are produced. Now I've also come across some information that suggests taking Saw Palmetto, a type of berry fruit, in capsule form may also help with reducing androgen hormone production, therefore lessening the amount of hair. (Read more about the dose and precautions.)
Hirsutism, often seen in women that have PCOS is quite common. We would love to hear if you have this condition and if saw palmetto or anything else has helped reduce the excessive hair. Place in the comments below.
