Excellent!The product was delivered fast considering there was a public/religious holiday. The box was sturdy and the packaging within the box was adequate to protect the bottle. The bottle was sealed and undamaged with all seals in place. The ingredients matched the website notes and the product looks well manufactured. No nasty smell when the bottle was opened which is a good sign of freshness. Ingredient quality looks and tastes good.
I have Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia problem for many years and searching from the internet I found Nettle Root which is stated good for the prostate. NOW is a brand I trust and thus I try the first time for it's Stinging Nettle Root Extract to see if this can easy my problem with the prostate. Hope to get good result after a month or two.
Nettle is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory herb. It does that by inhibiting several inflammatory compounds, thus giving relief from pain and inflammatory conditions without side effects. It helps with arthritis, autoimmune and sinus problems, etc. it is very rich in nutrients such as Vitamin C, Iron, Magnesium, Calcium, Carotenoids (phytonutrients), it is also high in Protein. Nettle lowers high blood sugar levels and has a sedative effect, so I take it with my evening meal, especially if I've had something sweet. It can definitely make you feel sleepy so I wouldn't take it during the day. The root extract is a lot more potent than the leaf extract. Nettle is also helpful for the prostate as it slows down the conversion from Testosterone to DHT, which is a very powerful form of Testosterone, linked to male pattern baldness and other symptoms of Prostate problems. It does inhibit excessive amounts of Estrogen as well, so it helps regulate the female body too. It may even increase Lactation in women if help is needed in milk production. If you've found this review helpful please give it a thumbs up.
I have used Stinging Nettle as a tea, which worked well however I love the convience of the capsules and I am so happy I decided to try that application. I have a great deal of arthritis and inflammation and I am very pleased with making the decsion to try this out. I see a little improvement, encouraged and hope that overtime will see more. It is a great supplement, there is no taste. But I do suggest you are careful how much you take and be aware it can cause diarrhea or sudden need to go to the bathroom.
Interestingly, I had a very poor reaction to a different prostate supplement. I stopped using it, and soon thereafter was hiking and got whacked by stinging nettle all over my arms. Prostate symptoms disappeared! So, I started using this instead of multi-ingredient prostate supplements, and it has worked great.
This is a great product! I have been using it for a few weeks now and have noticed a significant difference in my overall energy levels. I am no longer feeling sluggish and run down like I used to. Additionally, my skin is looking much better and I feel like my allergies are not as bad as they were before taking this supplement. Overall, I am very pleased with the results I have experienced from taking the supplement and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an energy boost or relief from allergy symptoms.
I have taken it for years. I have no prostate problems so far. I may be just fortunate, or the Stinging Nettle Root works wonders on me. I sleep thru the night. I will continue to buy this product. Taking stinging nettle root before breakfast and lunch the last eight months has worked better for me than with saw palmetto alone.
