Nutrient - Nettle

(Urtica dioica)

By Nutri People

Nettle roots contain many active ingredients including ‘scopoletin’, ‘beta-sitosterol’, lignans, sterols and polyphenols. Nettle helps support a healthy prostate and promotes urine flow through the kidneys, thereby supporting healthy male reproductive function. Nettle leaves help promote both the narrowing and widening of blood vessels and the removal of uric acid, thereby helping support healthy joints. The leaves are high in vitamin C and iron, which is essential for building healthy red blood cells. Nettle also supports the immune system, especially when challenged, and helps balance blood sugar levels.
