Nettle is a perennial flowering plant that has been used for centuries for its numerous medicinal benefits. Nettle leaves are particularly rich in vitamins A and C, iron, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, making it a potent herb for enhancing overall health.
Research indicates that nettle helps alleviate allergy symptoms due to its anti-inflammatory effects on nasal passages. It also acts as a diuretic to relieve symptoms of bloating and urinary tract infections. Nettle tea has proved useful in managing hypertension by improving blood pressure levels while reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases owing to its high antioxidant content.
Furthermore, studies show that nettle inhibits the growth and spread of prostate cancer cells thanks to certain compounds such as lignans and lectins present in it.
