Herb for prostate: There is some suggestion that taking this herb might improve prostatic obstruction in middle aged and older men. The research data is very thin and the evidence shows it is unlikely. Also there is no regulation in this area so you cannot be sure that the contents of the bottle match the hype on the label.
