Nettle General Information
Nettle has an erect stalk that is two to three feet in height and bears dark green leaves with serrated margins and small, inconspicuous flowers. Nettle grows wild and even though certain species of Nettle can cause burning pain that lasts from hours to weeks, it can also serve as a medicine. In ancient Grecian times Nettle Juice was used treat bites and stings. Roman soldiers reportedly used the irritation produced by Nettle leaves to keep their legs warm in the hospitable climes of Britain. Nettle tea was prescribed by European herbalists for lung disorders, and Native Americans used it as an aid in pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. In folk medicine, it is used for treating asthma. Nettle has expectorant, antispasmodic, diuretic, astringent, and tonic properties. This plant is also rich in chlorophyll, carotene, iron, silica and potassium and vitamin C.

Nettle Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Nettle Root is widely used in Europe for the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or prostate enlargement. Based on a preliminary study at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon, Nettle leaf has become a popular treatment of allergies (hay fever), but is also used to help with goiter, inflammatory conditions, rheumatism and arthritis. This herb helps cleanse the body of toxins and wastes. Nettles can relieve fluid retention, bladder infections, stones and gravel. Externally, it can be used on cuts and wounds, hemorrhoids, nosebleeds, and for soothing and healing burns and scalds. Nettle is used in some hair care products to help stimulate hair follicles and regulate scalp oil buildup. In its cooked form, Nettle is highly nutritious and may be used as a general dietary supplement and is especially good for those who are convalescing, anemic, or elderly.

Nettle Dosage Information
Nettle comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. The recommended dosage of Nettle root, according to Commission E, is 4 to 6 g daily of the whole root, or an equal dose of concentrated extract. The effectiveness in using Nettle root to treat prostate problems is believed to be enhanced when taken with saw palmetto or pygeum. The proper dosage for allergies is 300 mg twice a day of freeze-dried Nettle leaf. For other formulations, it is best to read and follow product label directions.

Nettle Safety & Interaction Information
Nettle leaf is believed to be safe since it has long since been used as food. Nettle root does not have as long a history, although no significant adverse effects have been noted in Germany where Nettle root is widely used. There is some concern from a theoretical perspective that Nettle may interact with diabetes, blood pressure, anti-inflammatory, and sedative medications, though there are no reports of any problems occurring in real life. Always talk to your physician before taking supplements in addition to any medications you are taking.
