Organic Nettle Tea

Nettle, or stinging nettle, is a shrub that comes from northern Europe and Asia. Its scientific name is Urtica dioica. The plant boasts pretty, heart-shaped leaves and yellow or pink flowers, but the stem is covered in tiny, stiff hairs that release stinging chemicals when touched. While people have used it for centuries as an herbal medicine, modern research also supports many of the potential health benefits of nettle and nettle tea.

One useful and important health benefit of nettle tea is its ability to naturally relief and aid allergy symptoms especially hay fever by blocking histamine receptors and stopping immune cells from releasing chemicals that trigger allergy symptoms.

Nettle may help flush harmful bacteria from the urinary tract. This can benefit people who have urinary conditions, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH causes an enlarged prostate gland in men. This can cause pain or other problems urinating.

Nettle has proved effective against arthritis due to its ability to reduce inflammation and pain associated with osteoarthritis.

Blood sugar management is another effective use of Nettle tea, it helps the pancreas release more insulin which is the hormone that lower blood sugar.

Nettle tea also has a high amount of polyphenols which is very effective in prevention and management of chronic diseases related to inflammation such as; diabetes, obesity, cancer and heart disease.

In particular, polyphenols from nettle extract have shown some exciting potential for treating breast cancer and prostate cancer. Plants like nettle also contain potent antioxidants, which are substances that protect the body from aging and cell damage.
