Stinging nettle is a commonly seen plant in North America. Several parts of the plant have been studied for their medicinal benefit. Nettle leaf has been used to decrease allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and congestion. It does this by stabilizing cells that release histamine, called mast cells. Histamine is responsible for inducing the allergic response by signaling inflammatory cells to go to the mucus membranes. Nettle leaf is also used to increase the excretion of uric acid in the kidney and increase its transportation out of tissues.
This will help gout sufferers because it is the crystallization of uric acid in the joints that leads to gouty arthritis. Nettle root is used for prostate disorders like BPH. Components in nettle bind to hormone receptors in the prostate thus preventing the stimulation of the gland, which ultimately prevents the prostate’s enlargement.
Rich in chlorophyll and important trace minerals, nettle leaf from Nature's Way is carefully processed to maintain an optimum level of active components for the maximum therapeutic effect. Nettle is an excellent cleanser for the kidney, bladder, and urinary tract as whole and can be used periodically as part of a cleansing or infection fighting program or as a natural alternative to drug based diuretics.
