General information on Nettle

The nettle grows almost everywhere, near houses, in gardens or ditches, and is 60 to 120 cm high. In summer, it bears clusters of flowers in the shape of tiny green balls. It is recognized by its green, pointed and serrated leaves, bristling with stinging, hard, cone-shaped hairs. Their tip breaks when touched, releasing a liquid that contains in particular formic acid and histamine, irritants for the skin.

We find there :

in the leaves, moderately anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidant flavonoids, many minerals, detoxifying chlorophyll and interesting nutrients: vegetable proteins or vitamins;

in the roots, proteins are capable of binding to a sugar (lectins), in small quantities but very active, lignans and anti-inflammatory sterols.

How to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia with nettle?

Adenoma or benign prostatic hypertrophy refers to the progressive inflammation of the gland. Affecting a quarter of men from the age of 50, this disease is manifested by difficulty in urinating.

As a reminder, the prostate surrounds the urethra, the channel provided for the evacuation of urine and semen. The swelling of the prostate, therefore, causes pain during urination, but also frequent urges to urinate. Inflammation can also reduce the flow of urine or, in the worst case, interrupt it.

To relieve and treat adenoma in phases I and II, drink a cup of herbal tea made from dried nettle root 3 to 4 times a day for 6 months. You can also take nettle root supplements.
