Urtica Dioica, also known as stinging nettle or common nettle is a plant whose leaf (nettle leaf) is used as an herbal supplement or medicinal herb primarily to treat a variety of symptoms both topically and orally.
Some of the uses of stinging nettle leaf are used to treat arthritis, kidney and urinary tract infections, the flu, gout, cardiovascular disorders, inflamed prostate and low testosterone.
The effects of nettle that we are interested in as a penis enlargement supplement include:
- Improved circulation via nitric oxide release as a cardiovascular booster and vasorelaxation.
- Increased testosterone
- Prostate relief
How Nettle Affects PE
It is common for bodybuilders to utilize nettle extract since it contains a compound called 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran, which has been shown (in this study) to increase free testosterone by occupying sex-hormone binding globulin. Free testosterone is beneficial for PE by allowing more cells to absorb testosterone subsequently “activating” the cell’s receptors. Essentially, this allows the cells to better grow and repair, contributing to a larger penis during a PE routine (or larger muscles during a bodybuilding routine).
Studies on the effects of nettle on the cardiovascular system are somewhat promising in providing a slight boost in circulation by relaxing the blood vessels (known as vasorelaxation) and therefore decreasing blood pressure. High blood pressure has a very negative effect on growth.
Finally, many PE enthusiasts experience the hindrance of a swollen prostate. Not only is it very uncomfortable, but it can greatly reduce the effects of penis enlargement. Additionally, many beneficial male enhancement supplements may aggravate existing prostate problems which prevents you from being able to use those supplements. This is a big part of why many male enhancement pills include nutrients like saw palmetto, pygeum and stinging nettle.
Research indicates that stinging nettle is an effective treatment for BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
Do We Recommend Taking Urtica Dioica?
YES. Stinging nettle surprisingly has a lot of medical backing to suggest the effects such as increased testosterone, improved circulation and prostate relief are all proven and beneficial results of nettle supplementation.
