Stinging Nettle is one of the oldest used plants in existence with its first recorded use as a source of fabric between 3000-2000BCE. The Ancient Greeks during the time of Hippocrates used Nettle as a food and herb and it's popularity in both European and Western Herbal traditions have remained strong since. In Herbal tradition(s) Nettle leaf is dubbed the 'seaweed of the land' for its highly nutritive qualities, with both the leaf and root being known kidney allies and lymphatic strengthening. More recently Nettle root has been extensively studied in human clinical trials as a treatment for symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). Our Organic Nettle Root powder allows this food to be conveniently added to dishes as you would any condiment, powder, or superfood. The physiological activity of Nettle root has been well documented and is traditionally used for a variety of conditions.
