Clinical Studies

A multicenter, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study treated 246 patients for 1 year with 450mg/2 times daily of dry extract of nettle. There were significant differences compared to placebo, both in the decrease in the volume of the bladder residue and in increase in urinary flow. The side effects were lower in the group treated with the extract compared to that with the placebo.
