Nettles is a powerhouse super green! One of the first greens to come up in Spring, it is a welcome sight after the scarcity of Winter. The leaves are gently cleansing and packed with nutrients.
Nettles is a diuretic which naturally expels excess water from the body. It is also an alterative, meaning over time it restores our bodies to their proper functioning to increase health and vitality. Nettles gets body systems moving, detoxes, and builds blood. It is high in nutrients like iron, protein, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, amino acids, silica, magnesium, and calcium. Because it has both iron and vitamin C, it is optimal for absorption which may help support those with iron deficiency. It supports kidney function and even improves the health of hair, skin, and nails.
In tinctured form, it is easy to take. Add it to beverages, smoothies, and even cook with it. Tincture is an excellent way to extract the useful plant properties while making a brew that is fast-acting and concentrated. For some, it is much easier than drinking a cup of herbal tea.
