I think the question is what doesn't nettle do?
This plant (that is even considered a weed here in the Northwest) contains prostaglandins (decreases inflammation), protein (when dried it contains 40%), calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, beta-carotene, vitamins A,C,D, and B complex.
Nettles are useful in:
- Blood building
- Breaks up mucus congestion
- Skin irritations
- Water retention
- Helps nursing mother's produce milk
Nettle (in the dried form) can be made into a tea or added to a soup!
