Herb of the week: Nettle (Urtica Dioica)

Posted by Nick Nowaczyk on

 Nettle is one of the best all around herbs for nourishing and strengthening the whole body. Nettle strengthens and supports the adrenals, kidneys, lungs, intestines and arteries. Nettle is an excellent source of minerals, vitamins and amino acids. More specifically, Nettle is rich in iron, calcium, potassium, silicon, magnesium, manganese, zinc and chromium. Nettle is also an energizer and increases the ease of operation for the entire body system.  My favorite herbs by far.
