Meet the Herb: Stinging Nettle

Stinging Nettle (Urtica Dioica)

Stinging Nettle (Urtica Dioica) is one of the most nutritious herbs and it is known as a tonic for the entire body. 

The benefits: 

  • It contains vitamins such as vitamin A, C, K and many of the B vitamins as well. 
  • It reduces inflammation in the body.
  • It treats muscle and joint pain. 
  • It’s a natural remedy for cold and flu symptoms. 


It also contains essential amino acids and minerals. It is rich in: chlorophyll, serotonin, histamine, iron, calcium, and silica. 

Often a Clinical Herbalist will create a formulation with this herb for those suffering from low iron levels. However, I recommend that you always work with a Herbalist prior to taking the medicinal dose as this herb can give you higher than normal iron levels.
