QTY:

The leaves and stems in some Nettle subspecies have long stinging hairs that inject an array of chemicals when touched, including histamine, formic acid, serotonin, and acetylcholine. This produces an irritating, uncomfortable sensation in the skin, which is how it got the name stinging nettle. However, once you boil these stems and leaves or extract the powerful oils, the stinging substances are neutralized and so that the real benefits of the plant can be enjoyed. The Nettle leaf has been traditionally used to increase the excretion of uric acid through the kidney, which is the main cause of gout. Nettle leaf is a mineral-rich tea and used for its diuretic and soothing effects on the urinary tract.

Benefits of Nettle Leaf:

  • Relieves Urinary Tract Infections- A 2016 study titled “Novel Strategies in the Prevention and Treatment of Urinary Tract Infections“, suggests that nettle has diuretic and antibacterial properties. [2] Therefore, drinking nettle tea aids in the removal of toxins and makes an excellent remedy for bladder infections, urinary tract infection (UTI), and edema (water retention).
  • Relieves Gout- Phytotherapeutic compounds found in nettle tea have a beneficial effect on joint pain, osteoarthritis, and gout.
