This herb is an effective treatment to cure Cancer and is very effective for high bp. So, you may have this tea every day . Try for a week and keep a check on your Bp. But not for prostate enlargement. Take Stinging Nettle capsules for it. One every day . or you can buy the homeopathic tincture of this herb. It is known as Urtica Dioica. Add 5 drops of this in a glass of water. Drink every day for a month.
Consult your health care provider before trying any herb.
