Nettle – Stinging Nettle
Nettle is well known for thousands of years all over the World. There are three types of Nettle: small, large and roman Nettle. The leaves and stems of the plant are covered with hair like structures. Its leaves contain a stinging liquid which has formic acid, serotonin, acetylcholine, and 5-hydroxytrypt-amine. The hairs are very easily broken when brushed which can pierce the skin and cause a sting and a lingering irritation. The stinging feature fades away 10 hours after the plant is picked. All parts of the plant are used (leaves, roots and seeds) in different medical treatments. Several scientific studies have confirmed Nettle’s efficacy in treating many diseases. The plant is rich in chlorophyll, iron and calcium. It also contains vitamin A, C, E and beta-carotene.
Nettle leaves are blood antiseptic, antioxidant and anti-allergic.
