Nettle, or stinging nettle, is a shrub that comes from northern Europe and Asia. The plant has heart-shaped leaves that look pretty and have yellow or pink flowers. The stem is covered in tiny, stiff hairs that release stinging chemicals when touched. For centuries people have used the leaves, stem, or root from the nettle plant as and in various forms of herbal medicines. Along with the benefits to the body, it is also very good for skin.
Benefits of Nettle
Historically and scientifically, it has been said that Nettle leaves have many health benefits due to the presence of a high amount of plant chemicals called polyphenols. This chemical plays an important role in helping to cure many chronic diseases, including urinary track infections, anaemia and cardiovascular conditions; purify blood; lose weight; detox the body; and alleviate allergies and severe menstrual bleeding.
How to Make Nettle Tea
It is easier with loose Nettle tea leaves, which are readily available in most food stores.
Put 1 tablespoon of loose nettle tea in a cup.
Add boiling water and let it sit for 2 to 5 minutes.
If you wish, you can add honey, but it's healthier to drink it pure.
When to Have
Drinking Nettle tea continuously for 3 weeks, 3 times a day will wash away a lot of harmful substances from your body, helping to cleanse the liver and regenerate the skin.
Have one cup in the morning on an empty stomach and the other 2 cups during the day within a gap of 3 to 4 hours.
Hope you enjoy the tea. Stay healthy and glowing.
