Nettle Leaf Tea
Nettle Leaf, also known as Urtica Dioica and Stinging Nettle, is a wild plant with heart-shaped leaves that are covered in hairs that sting. True to its name, stinging nettle imparts a painful sting through tiny hairs on the underside of its leaves and on its stems when touched.
Nettles can grow 2 to 5 feet tall and have opposite leaves. The leaves are coarsely toothed, pointed on the ends and can be several inches long. Smaller, younger leaves have more of a heart shape.
Nettle Leaf is a great herb for curing many thyroid problems including both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. It is known to correct any type of thyroid imbalance. It is very healthy as it contains Vitamin A, B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, and iodine. They are also incredibly nutrient-dense and contain a wide array of vitamins and minerals.
Stinging Nettle Leaf is a gentle diuretic, helping the body to process and flush away toxins. It flushes the kidneys and bladder to prevent and soothe urinary tract infections. Nettle tea is ideal for sodium-induced water retention and high blood pressure. Today, many people use it to treat urinary problems during the early stages of an enlarged prostate (called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH). Stinging nettle has been used for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anaemia.
The best way to consume our Nettle Leaf Tea is by adding water to the leaves and bringing it to a boil. After it is done boiling, let it rest for 5 minutes and then pass it through the strainer. Add a bit of honey, cinnamon, or stevia to add more flavour. The maximum recommended use of nettle tea is four cups per day.
WARNING: When making Nettle Leaf Tea make sure the root is removed and only the leaves are used for the tea, as consuming the root can have some side effects.
