Not all ingredients are created equal. While developing NATRXA we sought to find only those ingredients, no matter the cost, which are clinically proven and have the science to back up their claims.

Stinging Nettles

The genus name Urtica comes from the Latin verb urere meaning, "to burn," because of its urticate (stinging) hairs that cover the stem and underside of the leaves. The species name dioica means "two houses" because the plant usually has male or female flowers.

What are Stinging Nettles used for?
Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) Stinging nettle is used rather frequently in Europe in the treatment of symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). Early evidence suggests an improvement in symptoms, such as the alleviation of lower urinary tract symptoms associated with stage I or II BPH, as a result of nettle therapy. 

With which drugs should Stinging Nettles not be taken?
Alpha blockers are typically given to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). Co-administration of nettle and alpha blockers may theoretically have an additive blood pressure lowering effect. Caution is advised.
