    Beta-sitosterol is probably the most important, active ingredient in phytosterols, which are found in plants and are thought to be useful in treating urinary problems related to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Evidence that phytosterols inhibit enzymes, hormones, and growth factors, and produce inflammatory effects has been found, but the precise mechanisms by which phytosterols improve urinary symptoms are not known.
