Studies show that stinging nettle may have the ability to treat enlarged prostate. Enlarged prostate, known medically as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a condition in men in which the prostate gland increases in size, which can cause discomfort during urination. There is no known cause of enlarged prostate. Research has been conducted on stinging nettles’ ability to treat BPH. A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted with 620 individuals. The group that was given stinging nettle experienced improvements in a variety of prostate health markers, including: increased urinary flow rate and decreased residual urine volume. The researchers noted that the stinging nettle group also experienced a modest reduction in total prostate size. The nettle group also experienced no side effects. Another clinical trial tested the effectiveness of a combination supplement containing extracts made from stinging nettle and saw palmetto fruit. The findings revealed that this supplement increased urinary flow by 19% and reduced residual urine volume by 44%.

Research shows that stinging nettle may help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is your body’s natural healing and self-defense response. It’s the process by which the immune system recognizes and removes harmful invaders and kickstarts the healing process. While acute inflammation is good, chronic inflammation can lead to a host of health disorders, including: diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and joint diseases, allergies, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A number of animal and lab studies have shown that stinging nettle works to reduce inflammation in the body.
