Stinging nettle leaf tea is absolutely loaded with health benefits.
- It has been in use by humans since the Bronze Age (approx. 3,300BC – 1,200 BC) – so you can’t say it hasn’t stood the test of time.
Not only is nettle leaf tea one of the best detoxifying herbal teas around, but it helps with:
- muscle and joint pain
- hay fever
- problem skin and hair
- kidney health
- urinary tract and prostate (if you have one)
- immune system function
- digestive system function.
Impressed? Well let’s take a closer look then.
Introducing stinging nettle
Urtica dioica is more commonly known as stinging nettle, or common nettle.
It’s native to Europe, western North Africa and temperate Asia.
- Five species have stinging hairs on the leaves and stems which inject histamine, and other chemicals, into anything that touches them.
This causes a stinging sensation not unlike that of a bee sting or a bull ant bite.
A red rash (and occasionally welts) usually appears.
After the stinging dies down it is replaced by itching; in rare cases there can be a more severe reaction.
The plant itself can grow to a height of 1 to 2 metres in the summer months.
It then dies down to the ground in winter.
It has tiny flowers, which can be greenish, yellowish, brownish or purplish, and which grow in clusters along a stem,
The leaves are 3 to 15 cm in length.
Studies have discovered that every part of the nettle – leaf, stem, flower and root – has antioxidant, antimicrobial and pro-health properties.
The healthy goodies
It is brimming with healthy, nutritious goodness, including:
- vitamin A
- several B vitamins
- vitamin C
- vitamin K
- all the essential amino acids
- powerful antioxidants.
You can actually cook the plant itself as it is a highly nutritious vegetable that tastes like silver beet.
Summary: While stinging nettle is often avoided – especially by bush walkers – it is actually a herb that contains an abundance of health benefits. Every part of the plant can be eaten, and the greens can be cooked like a vegetable.
A dream for detoxification
These days it is quite difficult to completely control what goes into our bodies.
Naturally, we all do our best to
- purify our water
- buy the freshest fruit and vegetables we can find – organic if possible
- eliminate junk food and processed food from our diet.
And yet our bodies still seem to accumulate toxins and things that can harm us.
- In some cultures, stinging nettle leaf tea has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. The most common reason being its amazing detoxifying properties.
Take a look on the shelves of a health food store.
You’ll find that nettles are a key ingredient in most detoxifying tonics.
The herb’s natural bountiful bio-chemicals along with the fact that it is a mild diuretic, means it flushes out the bladder and kidneys, as well as the urinary tract.
It could prevent the necessity for dialysis due to its ability to:
- purify the blood
- remove creatinine and uric acid
- dissolve gallstones
- control any infection and inflammation in the kidneys.
It also provides similar protection and health benefits for the bladder.
The benefits of healthy kidneys and bladder
One naturopathic doctor states that due to the potent chemicals in stinging nettles, a cup or two every day will flush out unwanted toxins and any excess salt.
The results of that clean out will be clearer, smoother skin, no more puffy eyes, and no more water retention.
Furthermore, by getting rid of all these nasties, the blood is purified.
Purified blood means a reduction in both blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
Research suggests that the bio-compounds in nettle leaves somehow stimulate the lymphatic system.
This enhances the kidneys’ ability to excrete waste, getting rid of toxins and things like uric acid and salt.
- One super benefit of drinking nettle leaf tea daily is that it will not only have you feeling healthier, but it will also clear up skin conditions and anything else caused by a build-up of toxins.
So kiss your morning coffee goodbye and say hello to something that will make you feel a whole lot better.
High blood pressure affects between 20 and 25% of the Australian population. Hibiscus tea has been found to be more effective at lowering blood pressure than a leading prescription medication. No side effects have been detected except in exceedingly high doses whereby liver damage may occur.
Natural relief from arthritis and gout
The ancient Egyptians accomplished a lot of world firsts.
One of these was using stinging nettle herbal tea to relieve the pain and inflammation of arthritis and lumbago.
As usual, a lot of these ancient uses are being scientifically proven to have merit.
- A 2016 study concluded that stinging nettle had enormous medical benefits for the treatment and relief of rheumatism, arthritis and muscular pain.
It added that stinging nettle may also have anti-cancer benefits.
This is due to the herb’s anti-inflammatory properties, which help relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and gout.
In a trial from 2009, researchers gave some of the 81 participants with osteoarthritis a mixture of fish oil, vitamin E, and stinging nettle, and others a placebo.
For the next 3 months, those who were taking the stinging nettle mixture commented on improved symptoms.
In addition, they stated they didn’t need their anti-inflammatory medications as much as the others in the placebo group.
Further scientific evidence
In another experiment, extracts of stinging nettle demonstrated potent anti-inflammatory effects and could therefore be of assistance in the treatment of arthritis.
Science has found that stinging nettle antioxidants inhibit one of the main enzymes responsible for joint inflammation.
- The University of Maryland found that drinking nettle leaf tea regularly while taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for arthritis allowed sufferers to reduce their NSAID dose.
Gout is very closely related to arthritis and is usually extremely painful.
The bio-compounds in stinging nettle help the body to release quantities of uric acid from the joints.
It is a build-up of these that result in painful gout.
There are few reasons not to take stinging nettle so you can take it over a long period of time.
An interesting piece of information regards a treatment called “urtication”, which is the deliberate stinging of the skin with nettles.
This was, and still is, a common practice in the relief of arthritic pain (and gout).
And while it does actually relieve the pain, it leaves behind a localised stinging and rash.
However, it’s probably easier and less painful for all concerned to enjoy a cup of stinging nettle leaf tea.
- Science has given it the thumbs up with regards to arthritis treatment and it doesn’t hurt afterwards.
There are innumerable scientific reports on the benefits of stinging nettle tea for the treatment of arthritis, osteoarthritis and gout. The anti-inflammatory properties of the herb are powerful and have been in use to treat the same ailments for centuries. Urtication is the deliberate placing of fresh stinging nettles over the affected area for pain relief…though not recommended unless you have the heart of a lion.
May inhibit the growth of cancer
Cancer in its many forms is one of the most prevalent diseases in modern society.
However, the powerful antioxidants in stinging nettle have been proven to be effective against some forms.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women worldwide.
- In 2016, test tube experiments using extracts from stinging nettle on human breast cancer cells resulted in successful inhibition of the cancerous cells with no harmful effects on healthy tissue.
In a study of breast cancer on rats, extracts from Urtica dioica slowed the formation of mammary tumours.
Research in 2020 found that the presence of a variety of bio-chemicals in stinging nettle are responsible for the cell death of leukaemia cancer cells.
- Other research in 2019, stated that the way the compounds in stinging nettle inhibit proliferation and trigger cell death in cancer cells was due, in part, to its polyphenols since they possess anti-oxidant, anti-mutagenic and anti-proliferative properties.
It said that as the herb has demonstrated its ability to mitigate and prevent cancer in both laboratory and animal tests, that it is a useful herb in the development of new natural cancer-therapies.
A study on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) found that stinging nettle extract selectively killed the cancer cells without touching the surrounding healthy cells.
- Research has also found stinging nettle to be effective against prostate cancer by halting the proliferation of cells.
It seems clear that stinging nettle really does have anti-cancer properties.
What’s more, it has been proven many times in laboratory, animal and human studies.
And while it is effective as an anti-cancer brew, it is also beneficial as a post-cancer tonic, which reduces the chances of a recurrence.
A lot of scientific research has been done on stinging nettle and the results confirm its anti-cancer properties – with studies on breast, lung and prostate cancer, as well as on leukaemia, showing clear evidence of non-proliferation of cancerous cells and cell death of cancers without any adverse effect on the surrounding healthy cells.
Defeat hay fever and other allergies
Nettle tea, a natural anti-histamine, is worth having around if only for its benefits treating hay fever and other allergies.
74 people suffering from hay fever were randomly divided into 2 groups.
One of group received stinging nettle extract for a month, and the other, a placebo.
Stinging nettle was found to be effective in suppressing symptoms, although the conclusion was that there needs to be more research.
In addition to being a mild anti-histamine, nettle leaf tea also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Together, they reduce hay fever symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, redness and swelling, and itching.
- More specifically, the bio-agents in stinging nettle inhibit histamine from attaching to histamine receptors.
Tryptase is an enzyme released with histamine.
It is responsible for heightening histamine’s effects, but nettle inhibits it and thereby reduces allergic reactions.
Using nettle tea topically
- If you have eczema, or any other allergies, try drinking a cup of nettle tea.
Even better, make two cups.
Drink one and use the other one as a topical remedy, dabbing it onto the affected area.
It can reduce the itching associated with eczema.
- When using it topically, try it on a small patch of skin first as many people are allergic to nettle.
Obviously if there is any inflammation, burning sensation or welts, don’t continue.
Urtica dioica has been found to relieve the symptoms associated with allergies such as hay fever and eczema due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties. This is based on only a few studies, and while it does appear to work, there needs to be more studies completed. Though, try it for yourself and see. Be warned – when using the herbal tea topically, some people have an allergic reaction, so dab a little on first to make sure you’re okay with it.
Boost your cardiovascular health
In 2017-2018, 1 in 4 Aussie men had high blood pressure, and 1 in 5 women.
And researchers expect these figures to have risen since they were first recorded.
Stinging nettles to the rescue as they contain vitamins and minerals essential for the protection of the heart.
Nettle leaf tea contains several bio-chemicals that have benefits for the human cardiovascular system.
This includes potassium, which helps maintain a healthy blood pressure.
- The iron in nettle tea, in combination with the vitamin C it contains, helps to support healthy blood by increasing the number of red blood cells.
This plays an important role in helping to prevent the onset of anaemia.
Stinging nettle flavonoids such as quercetin and kaempferol, lower blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The iron and potassium in the herb help to relax blood vessels, which results in healthy circulation.
Animal studies have shown that the compounds in herbal extracts might stimulate the production of nitric oxide.
This chemical relaxes blood vessels, helping them to widen, and allowing for better circulation.
They also suggest that while the extract helped dilate blood vessels, the calcium channel blocking effects reduced the force of the heart’s contractions.
And another, 2018 study, revealed the anti-oxidative properties of stinging nettle extract.
Oxidative damage is caused by free radicals in our bodies that damage and destroy healthy cells and tissue.
This results not only in premature aging, but also in more serious organ damage.
- In research published in 2016, a clinical trial involving 50 women with type 2 diabetes who were given stinging nettle extract over a week-long period, found this led to a significant decrease in cardiovascular factors.
There is also some indication that it can assist in lowering cholesterol due to the presence of beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol.
High blood pressure
High blood pressure results from many things including stress or hereditary factors, but whatever the cause, the result is the same – our heart health is at risk.
Regular exercise, a healthy, balanced diet and regular consumption of herbal teas with cardiovascular benefits, such as stinging nettle, can help you avoid heart and circulatory problems both now and in the future.
The active chemicals in stinging nettle have been shown to lower blood pressure, which in turn lowers the stress on the heart. The anti-inflammatory properties of the tea and the antioxidants it contains help to protect the heart from oxidative damage. Finally, stinging nettle tea can stimulate the production of red blood cells.
Get your digestive system running smoothly
Another complaint many people have is one involving the digestive system – either the stomach or the bowels.
Stinging nettle leaf tea has definite benefits in this area, too.
- By enjoying a warm cup of this tea shortly after meals, you’ll help your body digest the meal efficiently. Without any hiccups – literally or metaphorically.
Drinking nettle leaf tea will provide relief from
- excess gas
- acid reflux
- celiac disease
- as well as preventing diarrhea by killing and flushing out intestinal worms and parasites, along with any toxins.
Nettle leaf tea further benefits us by healing the mucosal lining of the stomach remaining after stomach irritations or ulcers.
Another cause of digestive upset is excessive, or even chronic, inflammation.
This interferes with the normal digestion of food, and provides the perfect environment for the proliferation of harmful bacteria in your gut.
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, consuming nettle leaf tea on a regular basis, can reduce the inflammation and return your digestive system to its usual healthy state, along with reducing the chances of constipation, diarrhoea and nausea.
This is a herbal tea that takes care of the digestive tract, flushing out worms and parasites, and using it’s anti-inflammatory qualities to keep everything running smoothly. It also heals the lining of the stomach.
Supports your immune system
If ever we needed healthy immune systems, it is right now.
Thanks to COVID19 we are all taking better care of our health.
And since it looks like we’re stuck with the virus, we’re going to have to make sure our immune systems are at their peak.
- Fortunately, another benefit of stinging nettle tea is that it contains many immune-boosting bio-agents, such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and vitamins A and C.
These help to protect the immune system and prevent damage that can weaken immune system function.
In 2005, researchers at Turkey’s Hacettepe University found that stinging nettle stimulates T-cells.
These are cells that fight infection and other disease-causing pathogens in our body.
Furthermore, the abundant antioxidants in nettle leaf herbal tea roam our bodies looking for free radicals, which damage and, as a result, weaken our immune system.
These antioxidants, once inside our body, not only strengthen the immune response but also promote healthy immune cell formation, reinforcing our defences against any germs and viruses roaming about.
The thing about inflammation
Inflammation is one way in which our body defends itself against attack from these harmful bacteria and viruses.
The problems begin when this inflammation is not taken care of and becomes chronic (long-lasting) because it then leaves the body’s defences down, opening up the way for all manner of illness and disease to get a foothold.
Chronic stress is a good example.
Many of us can relate to the way we always seem to get a cold or flu in the first week of our annual holidays.
- The body senses the ongoing stress of work combined with taking care of a family etc. is over and the immune system decides that now is a good time to get sick because it has the time to deal with the inflammation and start rebuilding any damage to the immune system.
Nettle leaves have anti-inflammatory properties which help to take care of the inflammation that lowers our resistance to bacterial and viral attacks. They also are an abundant source of antioxidants, which help rid the body of dangerous free radicals, and help repair the damage done by them.
Just the thing for feminine health
Most women take their health very seriously, and stinging nettle is there to assist you because it is in possession of many bio-ingredients, such as iron and vitamin C, that positively affect feminine health.
For those suffering from painful pre-menstrual symptoms, nettle leaf tea can bring you relief from cramping and bloating, while at the same time minimizing blood flow during menstruation.
- If you are going through menopause, the herbal tea can reduce hot flashes and generally make the transition a lot smoother, as a trial done on 72 postmenopausal women demonstrated.
Nettle tea is considered by some, including mid-wives, to be of great benefit in healing after childbirth.
Two substances are important in maintaining hormone levels and these are sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) and aromatase.
Due to many things like menstruation, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and menopause, women undergo extreme hormonal fluctuations, and hormone imbalances, especially over-production of oestrogen, has been linked to a higher risk of breast cancer.
- Nettle produces a balancing—modulating—effect on the hormone levels through its influences on these two substances.
This particular herb is said to be a galactagogue, which means the bio-compounds it contains aid in increasing the quantity – and quality – of milk supplied by breastfeeding mothers.
Figures indicate that women are more prone to getting UTIs, but fortunately, nettle leaf tea is perfect for getting rid of them due to its diuretic and antimicrobial properties.
- Two studies, one in 1998 and the other in 2005, both concluded that drinking stinging nettle tea has the benefit of significantly lowering the incidence of UTI symptoms.
Stinging nettle tea has important benefits specifically for women. These include balancing the level of hormones, especially oestrogen, too much of which can lead to breast cancer. It further helps prevent women getting UTIs, as well as increasing the quantity and quality of breast milk in breastfeeding mothers.
The hair and skin you desire
Everyone notices healthy skin and hair.
But forget spending squillions on commercial lotions and potions.
Drinking a humble cup of stinging nettle leaf tea can do wonders for you at the fraction of the price.
Stinging nettle not only makes hair healthier and shinier; it can also be used both to combat hair loss and the loss of hair colour.
In the Journal of Applied Pharmaceutical Science Vol. 8 (01), pp. 093-097, January, 2018, it was found that this ability to retain hair was due to the bio-compounds in nettle stimulating blood flow to the scalp, improving the quality of the hair follicle.
- A 2011 study found that thinning hair and eventual loss of hair are often caused by damage due to inflammation of the hair follicle.
As stinging nettle has anti-inflammatory properties, it reduces inflammation to prevent any damage before it happens.
Furthermore, another study in 2017 discovered that stinging nettle can help stimulate the circulation of blood in the scalp
This encourages hair growth, as well as blocks the overproduction of testosterone which can result in the loss of hair.
Clearer, more youthful looking skin
Since it is a diuretic, it flushes the body clean of any toxins, resulting in fresher looking skin.
In fact, a great benefit of nettle leaf tea is that it has been proven to clear up acne and eczema.
In addition, the antioxidants in the nettles help to fight oxidative damage to cells and tissue, fighting back signs of premature aging such as dull, dry skin, fine wrinkles and blemishes.
Vitamin C is great for the skin and stinging nettle has an abundance of it.
- By using the tea as a face-wash, you will discover another benefit of nettle tea is its natural astringent qualities, tightening and firming your skin, as well as regulating the production of sebum – which is key to controlling acne.
(The tea can also be used topically on your hair to promote strong, shiny hair.)
But did you know that the bio-ingredients accelerate the healing of flesh wounds and burns, along with skin allergies and eczema?
The silicium and magnesium contained in the nettles also work alongside the antioxidants in an anti-aging capacity.
One factor of stinging nettles is that they contain all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants needed to promote strong, healthy hair and younger, smoother, blemish-free skin. It does this for skin through detoxifying the body and fighting oxidation, and for hair by stimulating the circulation of blood to the scalp and strengthening hair follicles.
Don’t neglect your bone health – they hold you up!
Stinging nettle tea benefits our bones due to it being rich in
- numerous amino acids
- bone-building minerals such as calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, silicon, zinc
- vitamins K (for bone building)
- vitamin C (reduces bones fractures)
- important B vitamins.
Magnesium, which is stored in the bones, strengthens bones and aids the absorption of calcium.
Low magnesium is linked to osteoporosis, a chronic condition of weak and fragile bones.
- A chronic iron deficiency is known to promote bone resorption, which also leads to osteoporosis. And did you know that if you don’t supply your body with enough calcium, it begins to take calcium from your bones?
This is known as…you guessed it, osteoporosis.
The daily recommendation for calcium intake is 1000 mg.
Women over 50 and everyone over 70 should be getting 1200 mg.
A single cup of nettle tea contains around 400 mg of calcium.
Nettles also contain trace amounts of silica (Silicon dioxide).
This is all that is needed to help in the formation of collagen fibres.
In an in vitro study, it was found that silica not only stimulates collagen synthesis (providing structure to connective tissue), but is also essential in the development of bone cells.
- In a study on newborn rats, it was found that those administered stinging nettle extract showed accelerated bone formation.
The extract also created significantly higher numbers of capillaries when compared to those that didn’t receive it.
If it’s bone health you are concerned about, you would be battling to find a better tea.
The evidence of its bone-building qualities AND all the other benefits to our overall health is clear.
Stinging nettle has the benefits of containing all the essential nutrients needed for bone health including calcium, magnesium, iron, silica, and vitamins C and K. These ingredients help with bone building, bone strengthening and protection against osteoporosis. A cup of nettle leaf tea provides just under half to a third of the average daily recommended intake.
For the men in your life -prostate health
And let’s not forget the health of your husbands, boyfriends and partners.
Stinging nettle is the ideal tonic for prostate health.
The prostate is a walnut-sized organ situated under the bladder, near the rectum.
It is responsible for the production of some of the liquids in semen.
Unfortunately, according to statistics, almost 100% of Aussie men will develop benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).
- Prostate examination found that 20% of 40-year-old men had an enlarged prostate, 70% of 60-year-olds, and 90% of 80-year-olds.
What studies have found
Rat studies in 2012 revealed nettles may prevent the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone — a more powerful form of testosterone.
Stopping this conversion is followed by a reduction in the size of the prostate.
- Research on men with BPH showed that taking stinging nettle extract helped treat short- and long-term urination problems associated with BHP, without any side effects, when compared to the men in the control group.
Additionally, those men who continued to take the nettle extracts over the following 18 months were found to have maintained the health and size of their prostates.
Used in combination with another herb – saw palmetto – stinging nettle can be effective in treating the symptoms of BHP.
These might include
- weakened urinary flow
- incomplete emptying of the bladder
- post-urination dripping
- a constant feeling of the need to urinate.
All of these symptoms are due to the enlarged prostate pressing on the urethra.
Stinging nettle has been found to slow the growth of prostate cells and so ease these symptoms.
And while nettle tea helps promote prostate health, if the symptoms don’t stop after drinking the tea, the person concerned should consult their doctor to check for prostate cancer.
Stinging nettle tea is good for prostate health, including the cessation of prostate cell growth as well as the ability to shrink the prostate down to its normal size. However, it is advisable to check whether the enlarged prostate isn’t a sign of cancer.
What does stinging nettle herbal tea taste like?
Stinging nettle tea has a green, herbaceous flavour that people compare to earthy, sweet seaweed, while others say it tastes like ‘spinach water’.
Many sources recommend adding it to other teas such as peppermint or lemon balm, to both enhance the healing properties and also the taste, while others suggest adding a small dollop of honey.
Are there any side effects to drinking stinging nettle tea?
This is a very good question.
Even though stinging nettle tea contains many compounds that benefit our health, some people who are allergic to nettles.
Especially when using it as a topical treatment.
It’s best to try the nettle tea on a small patch of skin first, to check for any reactions.
Stinging nettle is great for reducing the symptoms of hay fever.
Unless you suffer from hay fever caused by pollens then take this herbal tea with caution.
You may be allergic to it.
Furthermore, stinging nettle tea may interact with or enhance the effects of the following medications
- ACE inhibitors
- calcium channel blockers
- diabetes medications
Children under 12 should avoid nettle tea due to a lack of research on its effects on children.
So many herbal teas are not recommended for pregnant women. What about this one?
You’re in luck because stinging nettle leaves feature in pregnancy teas.
Herbalists even recommend taking them on their own due to their immense nutritional value, which includes:
- vitamin A
- vitamin C
- vitamin K
It is also important to make sure you are drinking nettle LEAF tea and not nettle ROOT tea.
And don’t drink too much during the first trimester as it has a stimulating effect on the uterus.
Some professionals would even recommend waiting until the second and third trimesters before sipping on this nutrition-packed tea.
It is further recommended you buy only organic tea from a reputable company.
Don’t use supplements because they aren’t regulated.
This means that what it says they contain might not be exactly the same as what they do contain.
And, if in doubt, discuss your intention of taking stinging nettle tea either with your doctor or a qualified naturopath.
Can you drink stinging nettle tea every day?
If you’re drinking stinging nettle leaf tea, then it is safe to drink up to 4 cups daily.
Too much nettle root tea can lead to side effects including upset stomach, skin irritation, skin rash, and sweating.
Can I drink nettle tea if I am on medication?
Stinging nettle tea contains vast amounts of nutrients and benefits for our health.
Unfortunately, though, some of the bio-agents can interact negatively with the chemicals in prescribed medications.
If you’re on any of these medications, check with your doctor before drinking nettle leaf/root tea.
- Blood thinning drugs such as Aspirin, Clopidogrel, and Warfarin.
- Hypertension medication such as ACE inhibitors: Captpril and Elaropril; beta blockers like Atenolol, Metoprolol and Propranolol; and calcium channel blockers including Nifedipine, Amlodipine, and Verapamil.
- Diuretics (water pills) like Furosemide or Hydrocholorothiazide.
- Diabetes drugs.
- Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs).
Nettle herbal tea may either intensify or diminish the effects of these prescribed drugs, thereby doing more harm than good, so please consult a doctor.
People have not used stinging nettles in folk medicine for hundreds of years for no reason.
They contain one of the highest concentrations of nutrition of any plant, and possess a veritable cornucopia of medicines and tonics to keep our bodies in tip-top health.
It seems impossible that drinking 2 to 3 cups of this herbal tea will keep your body in optimum health.
But it will – in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.
You have just read a detailed sample of its many wonderful properties; however, the internet is full of the health-enhancing qualities of stinging nettles.
You can even read about European folk medicine to find more references to nettles and their healing powers.
All herbal teas have their benefits to human health.
However, if it’s an all-round tonic you are looking for, you can’t go past nettle tea.
If you already take it, let us know what you’re taking it for and how successful it has been.
We really do appreciate our tea drinking family writing in to tell us their success stories.
So let’s raise our cups of nettle tea to good health.
