African wild potato is a plant. People use it to make medicine.

The African wild potato is used for urinary tract disorders including bladder infections(cystitis), prostate problems including benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) andprostate cancer; other cancers; and lung disease. It is also used for tuberculosis,arthritis, and a skin condition called psoriasis, as well as for delaying AIDS symptoms in people who are HIV-positive.

Some people apply African wild potato directly to the skin to promote wound healing.

Pharmacological Actions:Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory , anti-diabetic, anti-convulsant and anti-cancer 
Used For:

Immune booster, liver detox, anti-Candida, anti-inflammatory. Acts as tonic, and has been used for prostate problems. Traditional use also includes testicular tumours, prostate hypertrophy and urinary infections.

Trouble urinating because of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH). African wild potato contains a chemical called beta-sitosterol, which seems to improve symptoms of BPH.

Side Effects & Special Precautions:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking African wild potato if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Diabetes: African wild potato might lower blood sugar. Watch for signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and monitor your blood sugar carefully if you have diabetes and use African wild potato.

Kidney disease: African wild potato might decrease kidney function. This might make symptoms worse in people with kidney disease.

A rare inherited fat storage disease called sitosterolemia: People with sitosterolemia tend to develop early heart disease and also tend to accumulate cholesterol deposits under the skin. The beta-sitosterol in African wild potato can make this condition worse. If you have sitosterolemia, don’t use African wild potato.

Surgery: African wild potato might lower blood sugar levels. There is some concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using African wild potato at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
