Organically grown and sustainably harvested.
Botanical Name: Urtica dioica
The plant is known as “stinging nettle” because of its hollow hairs (tricomes) on the leaves and stem that cause a stinging sensation upon contact. Nettle leaf has been found to be beneficial for reducing joint pain and inflammation; counteracting seasonal allergies and other mild respiratory conditions.
If you have excessive menstrual bleeding, nettle can shorten the length of your period, make your flow lighter, and decrease the severity of cramps. Nettle is a natural diuretic, so it increases the flow of urine, reducing fluid retention and bladder infections.
Nettle leaf is a good source of calcium and other minerals, which can help reduce your risk of kidney disease, osteoporosis and other serious conditions.
