STINGING NETTLE LEAF
I’m a big fan of Stinging Nettle Leaf and Root—though I find myself using the leaf properties more often. And as we start edging closer to next season, it makes for a wonderful spring tonic herb.
It’s a slow acting nutritive herb, for it gently cleanses the body of metabolic waste and acts as one of the safest alternatives to treating chronic disorders that require long-term treatment. Its magical properties far exceed this, but here are six of my favorite reasons why you might consider throwing this herb (or tincture) into your soup dishes, bone broths, fermented vegetables, or teas:
I. It has a gentle stimulating effect on the lymphatic system.
II. Incredibly vitamin and mineral rich, its high iron content makes for an excellent blood builder with vitamin C aiding in the iron absorption. Especially good for women.
III. Incredible in aiding PMS because of its toxin-ridding activity.
IV. As an alkalizing diuretic, it increases the secretion and flow of urine, which is a great remedy for fluid retention.
V. Anti-inflammatory. Especially wonderful for treating chronic inflammation.
VI. Incredible in the treatment of seasonal allergies and asthma.
