Health Benefits

Nettle leaf is a rich source of antioxidants, which are needed for reducing the number of free radicals in your system. Vitamin C, for instance, is a powerful aid to the immune system and may even provide protection against various types of cancer.

Nettle leaf also contains vitamin A, which many scientists believe is necessary for eye health. In addition, nettle provides a range of other health benefits including: 

Arthritis Relief

Nettle leaf has been found to be beneficial for reducing joint pain and inflammation. In one study, 27 people who had arthritic pain in their fingers found relief by applying nettle leaf to the affected area daily for one week.

 

Manage Blood Sugar

Nettle leaf contains a compound called UD-1 that seems to act similarly to insulin in the body. Although more research is needed, scientists believe that nettle can help control blood sugar in people with diabetes. 

Improve Respiratory Health

Nettle has long been favored in folk medicine for its role in counteracting seasonal allergies and other mild respiratory conditions. A study of 98 test participants using the freeze-dried leaf for their allergies indeed found significant benefits from using nettle.
