Health Information

Stinging Nettle Root and Prostate Health

While the exact aetiology of benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) us still largely unknown, most of the evidence points to hormonal changes that occur in middle age and elderly males.

A primary area of focus has been the role of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) - an extremely active form of testosterone found in high concentrations in the prostate tissue of BPH patients.

DHT stimulates hyperplasia at a higher rate than other androgenic hormones.

5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) is the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone into 17-beta-estradiol.

Both 5-AR and 17-beta-estradiol activity increases with age and their primary focus is in the prostate gland, triggering prostate tissue growth.

Interestingly, these two hormones are also strongly implicated in poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS or PCOD)

Urtica (Nettle root) inhibits the action of aromatase enzyme on testosterone.  Extracts of the root have also been found to block the conversion of testosterone to estradiol and influence the effect of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) on BPH.

Nettle works best when combined with an extract of Saw Palmetto
