Stinging nettle heals benign prostatic hyperplasia in vitroBenign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate, affects many older men. It is not cancer, but physicians sometimes recommend pharmaceuticals or surgery. Nettle has been clinically proven to reduce inflammation associated with enlarged prostates. Scientists used stinging nettle root extract in vitro in a 2007 clinical study. Researchers observed anti-inflammatory activity, a reduction in cell growth, and antiviral properties. They concluded that stinging nettle looks very promising for healing BPH. However, before nettles could be recommended as a part of mainstream medical protocol, more studies would have to be conducted.
