Enlarged prostate affects 50% of all men in the second half of their lives. When 558 men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) were given either stinging nettle root or a placebo for six months in a double-blind study, . . .  81% improved on the nettle compared to only 16% on the placebo. Symptom scores went down from 19.8 to 11.8 in the herb group, but from 19.2 to only 17.7 in the placebo group. The prostate glands also shrunk modestly in the nettle group (40.1cc to 36.3cc) but not at all in the placebo group.
