Most of the time, saw palmetto is recommended for prostate health -- not for hair loss.

Many of these herbal remedies are not regulated or manufactured according to poitency -- so the actual dosages are unknown.  It is theoretically possible that if may be affecting your chest -- but I have never heard of it in this regard.

Unfortunately, since these are herbals, they do not undergo scrutiny by the FDA to determine efficacy and side effects -- so in a certain sense, you are on your own.
