➸ Don't let the name fool you, stinging nettle leaf tea is a nourishing and powerhouse of nutrients. This plant has adapted and developed its sting to protect herself because animals know its benefits. The leaf is a gentle diuretic, helping the body to process and flush away toxins. It flushes the kidneys and bladder to prevent and soothe a highly acidic body to be more alkaline, balanced and healthy. Nettle tea is ideal for sodium induced water retention, urinary tract infections and even reducing elevated blood pressure. I really can't say enough about the benefits of this tea!
➸ Nettle is highly nourishing and beneficial to drink everyday. It is high in good plant chemicals called polyphenols. Research on polyphenols suggests that these powerful compounds may play a role in the prevention and management of chronic diseases related to inflammation, such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, and heart disease. It reduces inflammation, and calms aches and pains of osteoarthritis and reduces high blood pressure. It has also been know to help reduce the inflammation caused by seasonal allergies (take it early in the season).
➸ Nettle is a superfood providing antimicrobial, antioxidant, analgesic and has anti-ulcer properties which have been studied in Germany and Turkey. Stinging nettle is high in potassium, calcium and magnesium and may be helpful for gout and a number of other inflammatory diseases.

NOTE: Handle with care. This is called "stinging nettle" so it does retain some of its bite while dried. Once it has been cooked or steeped there is no more sting.
