Organic Stinging Nettle Powder - High Dose 10: 1
WHAT IS NETTLE?
Nettle is a staple food in herbal medicine and a medicinal plant with a thousand virtues since Antiquity. It is particularly alkalizing, remineralizing, nourishing and slightly detoxifying.
The ancient Egyptians used nettle to treat arthritis and lower back pain.
In ancient Greece, the doctors Galens and Dioscorides used nettle as a diuretic and laxative.
Its scientific name, Urtica dioica, comes from the Latin uro, which means “to burn”, because its leaves can cause a temporary burning sensation on contact with the skin. Nettle then suffers from a bad reputation and seems to be considered a "weed".
However, studies have shown its effectiveness in many areas such as agriculture, industry, ecology and particularly in that of health. Indeed, once processed into a supplement, dried, freeze-dried or cooked, nettle can be consumed safely.
Nowadays it is used as a diuretic, against the pains of arthritis, rheumatism and benign inflammation of the prostate.
On the other hand, nettle offers a variety of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, polyphenols, and pigments many of which also act as antimicrobial, antiulcer, astringent and pain relieving agents in your body.
Finally, studies indicate that nettle extract can increase the levels of antioxidants in the blood. Antioxidants are molecules that help your cells defend themselves against damage caused by free radicals. Damage from free radicals leads to aging, cancer and other harmful diseases.
For the health and well-being of your animals
Nettle has many interesting properties for our pets. It naturally protects your animal from diseases and parasites. In addition, it fights against rheumatism, gives a shiny coat and promotes renal elimination.
In the past, nettle was commonly added to feed for farm animals to protect them from disease and parasites. It was also added to the oats of horses so that they had a shiny coat. Another traditional use of nettle was to add it to the mash of hens to promote laying. Nettle also fights against rheumatism, both animal and human.
Finally, Nettle leaves are an important source of minerals and trace elements, particularly potassium and silica, as well as antioxidant flavonoids. The first, with the joint action of flavonoids, will promote renal elimination through diuresis, while the second will play a role in the balance of connective (collagen) and bone (mineralization) tissues.
