What should you know about Nettle Tea?

One of my lovely followers asked me to make a post about Nettle Tea, a common natural allergy remedy with MANY benefits. I guess Stinging Nettle received its name from small spines that cover the plant in order to protect it. Found in Europe, Asia and North Africa, Stinging Nettle is the origin of Nettle Tea.

If you soak Stinging Nettles in water, the chemicals that cause those painful stings are neutralized, making the plant harmless. The leaves are protein-dense, equivalent to spinach, and those same leaves can be dried and made into Nettle Tea. The flowers of the plant are also commonly used in preparing teas.

To give you an idea how powerful this plant is, I'll go over just SOME Nettle Tea benefits:

  • Supports endocrine health by helping the thyroid, spleen and pancreas
  • Helps support the adrenals
  • Relieves menopause symptoms
  • Helps with menstrual cramps and bloating
  • Supports the kidneys
  • Helps break down kidney stones
  • Strengthens the fetus in pregnant women
  • Promotes milk production in lactating women
  • Boosts immunity
