Nettle Root Extract Supplement
Nettle root extract is widely used in Europe for its benefits in treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or enlarged prostate gland. It is recommended by Commission E in Germany and by ESCOP (European Scientific Cooperative of Phytotherapy) specifically to relieve urinary problems associated with an enlarged prostate.
What are the benefits associated with Nettle Root Extract?
The development of BPH depends on a number of factors: the conversion of testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a form which actively binds to sites of prostate cells regulating its growth and the age-related imbalance between levels of testosterone and estrogen, the latter stimulating prostate growth. Aromatisation converts androgens into estrogens adding to those already circulating in the blood.
Research shows that nettle root extract counteracts the development of BPH via various mechanisms:
- It inhibits conversion of testosterone into DHT.
- Interferes with free androgen concentration by acting on the serum proteins to which they are bound. Some of its constituents are able to bind strongly to these proteins.
- Inhibits the aromatase activity which allows testosterone to be converted into estrogens.
- Exercises a direct anti-proliferation action.
What do studies show about Nettle Root Extract?
Over 15000 men enrolled in clinical studies have benefited from the effects of nettle root extract, leading to significant improvements in:
- Prostate size;
- Frequency of urination;
- Nocturnal micturition;
- and post-micturition residue.
Nettle root extract is often used in combination with Saw Palmetto, also available to buy at Supersmart, to provide a synergistic effect. One observational study involving 419 urologists monitoring 2030 patients over 12 weeks showed beneficial effects, with 85% of patients reporting improvements.

Très bon produit ! Livraison rapide!
Pour l'instant, pas de changement notoire. Il faudra voir sur la durée.
Insieme a Prostaphil, una capsula dell’uno e una capsula dell’altro, da più di 10 anni le minzioni frequenti nella notte sono un vago ricordo.
pas d'amélioration sensible mais il semble falloir plusieurs mois donc attendre
