Nettle tea is one of my favorite teas. Its refreshing and detoxing. Although it can sting when it grows in the wild, it makes a really nice tea.
After being stung by nettle when I was 7 years old, I despised the plant. Now I enjoy the taste and amazing health benefits it has to offer.
Nettle has many advantageous properties for people with urinary problems such as cystitis.
People with IBS and GI disorders can benefit from drinking nettle tea.
Warning: nettle acts as a diuretic. It would not be as obvious in diluted tea, but if taken in concentrated drops it can act quickly. Use in small doses at your own risk. Support yourself with antioxidants to combat any adverse reactions of detoxification.
Nettle extract can be taken in small doses, for urinary discomfort.
At age 26, I am only getting started in my career path. I have just relocated to Vancouver to study holistic nutrition, and hope to share my knowledge through this platform. This website is a work in progress.
