In Christianity, Verbena is regarded as a sacred flower, which is often used to decorate the altar of religious consciousness. In addition, in the past, when people thought that disease was cursed by the witch, it was often inserted in front of the patient's bed to remove the curse. In ancient Europe, it was also regarded as a precious sacred grass and was given a symbol of peace in religious celebrations.
The latest research shows that Verbena contains many natural medicinal ingredients, such as cardiac glycoside, caffeic acid, amygdaline, and tannin. In Verbena, the amount of volatile oil and glycosides is especially high, which can eliminate sensitive bacteria and pathogens in the human body. The results showed that the effective components in Verbena had an inhibitory effect on Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria, Salmonella, Shigella flexneri and Brucella. 
In addition, the bacteriostatic effect of fresh Verbena juice is stronger than its lactone, which may be that the fresh juice contains not only lactone but also volatile oil and other chemical components. Verbena contains flavonoids, iridoids, and terpenes, which also have a significant effect on anti-tumor, anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory. 
The water and alcohol extract in Verbena can resist inflammation and improve the anti-inflammatory ability of human body. It was found that the total glycosides of Verbena officinalis could improve the chronic nonbacterial prostatitis (CNP) in mice, and showed good anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. Verbena extract can significantly prolong the pain threshold of mice induced by hot plate by inhibiting the writhing response induced by acetic acid.
Verbenoside can also stimulate the sympathetic nerve endings in a small amount and inhibit them in a large amount, so as to inhibit the contraction of smooth muscle of prostate capsule and stroma caused by sympathetic nerve tension, reduce the spasm of smooth muscle and internal sphincter of prostate matrix and capsule, and relieve urinary problems, such as frequent and urgent urination.

However, due to the lack of supporting research results, the etiology of chronic aseptic prostatitis is very complex, so it's too early to conclude that this is a recommended treatment. In addition, it is difficult to ensure the safety of use. After overdosing, people will have headaches, vomiting, abdominal pain and other adverse symptoms. 
In addition, there is some evidence that improving living habits can also help prevent chronic aseptic prostatitis. Remember to consult a doctor before use to avoid serious consequences of self-treatment. Western medicine generally advocates using antibiotics to treat prostatitis, but the effect of antibiotics on chronic nonbacterial prostatitis is not obvious so that treatments else can people try? Herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill may be a good choice.
Traditional Chinese medicine pays attention to the holistic approach, and they believe that the pain in the lower abdomen, lumbosacral area, and other parts is caused by the poor circulation of Qi and blood of the prostate. 
Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can promote blood circulation, which can help effectively eliminate the pain and discomfort of patients and heal the physiological environment of the prostate. And it is very safe without side effects such as drug resistance, and long-term use will also not cause damage to the human body.
