The leaf is a great source of vitamin C, carotene, vitamin K, and potassium. Stinging Nettle leaf constituents include beta-sitosterol and flavonoids quercetin, rutin, kaempferol. In addition to anti-inflammatory effects, the leaf also demonstrates analgesic, hemostatic, antibacterial, and antiviral activities.

It does not cure the enlargement but relieves the symptoms such as frequent urination and weak urinary flow. The plant and leaf of stinging nettle have been used for kidney and bladder stones, rheumatism, and urinary tract infections. In homeopathic remedies, stinging nettle has also been used for the spleen, itch relief, and with allergies to significantly reduce mucous and help reduce nasal congestion.
